Family with man on a Tramper

Mobility scooter hire at Antony, in partnership with Countryside Mobility Devon, allows visitors to explore the garden with ease.

Mobility scooter hire at Antony, in partnership with Countryside Mobility, allows visitors to explore the garden with ease.

We have an all-terrain scooter (known as a Tramper) at Antony in partnership with Countryside Mobility (an award winning initiative of disability charity, Living Options Devon).

All visitors hiring a Tramper must become a member of Countryside Mobility, if they are not already, to ensure they are covered by insurance and have demonstrated they can safely use a Tramper. Choose either a 2 week Taster Membership (£2.50) or Annual Membership (£10). The Membership then allows you to use Trampers at over 50 outdoor attractions and beauty spots around the South West, including a dozen in Cornwall.

The scooter is easy to use (so don’t worry if you’ve never used a mobility scooter before) and offers the chance to explore the majority of the garden including the lawns and formal gardens. The routes will be explained to you when you hire the Tramper and you will be given a map to assist you.

We will also provide you with a short introduction to the Tramper if this is your first time to ensure you feel safe and confident before setting off to explore.

The Tramper hire will be managed with enhanced hygiene procedures. Please read the following information as booking in advance is essential.
