Explore Cardinham Woods with an off-road mobility vehicle

Visitors with limited mobility (short or long-term, for any reason) can hire our Tramper through the Countryside Mobility Scheme. You do not have to be registered disabled to hire a Tramper.

The Tramper is an off-road mobility scooter, which is easy to use and able to tackle a range of surfaces and gradients come rain or shine. Our Tramper is suitable for enjoying the Lady Vale Walk, Callywith Wood Walk, and Lidcutt Loop (opening Autumn 2021). It can also access our network of forest roads and all the central visitor areas, such as the cafe's outdoor seating area.

Hire rates

Trampers are available to hire seven days a week, 10.00am-4.00pm. Pre-booking is essential to provide you with a smooth hire experience.

Prices are per Tramper:

Up to 1 hour£2.50
Up to 3 hours£5
Up to 6 hours£10

Anyone wishing to use a Tramper must be over the age of 14. If you are not already a member of Countryside Mobility, becoming one is quick and easy and will be part of your induction (£2.50 for 2 weeks, £10 for 1 year). You can then use Trampers at around 50 other beauty spots around South West England.
