All-terrain mobility scooters at the Cyril Hart Arboretum

Explore the Forest of Dean with an off-road mobility scooter

Visitors with permanent or temporary limited mobility can hire one of two ‘Walking with Wheels’ off-road mobility scooters through the Countryside Mobility Scheme.

Off-road mobility scooters (also called Trampers) are easy to use and can tackle a range of surfaces and gradients come rain or shine. You do not have to be registered disabled to hire one.

Maps of the routes will be provided when hiring.

Hire rates 

Price per scooter: £2.50 per hour.

If you are not already a member of Countryside Mobility, becoming one is quick and easy and will be part of your induction (£3 for one-off hire, £5 for 2 weeks, £15 for 1 year). You can then use them at around 50 other beauty spots around South West England.


Bookings for both Mallards Pike and Cyril Hart Arboretum are made at The Speech House Hotel, Coleford, Glos by calling 01594 822607



These scooters are provided by the Countryside Mobility Scheme, which is supported by Forest Voluntary Action Forum. Originally started by the Foresters' Forest Heritage Lottery funded programme, the scheme continues thanks to funding from the Barnwood Trust and Forest of Dean Ramblers Association.
