All-terrain tramper hire
Visitors to Fyne Court's wild garden are able to hire an all-terrain tramper. It will be available through our partnership with Countryside Mobility, a charity initiative to make countryside sites more accessible.
Social distancing measures
The tramper will be sanitised prior to the hire-out to each visitor. We will maintain social distancing throughout the hire and induction process. Please note we currently only accept card payment. We recommend that you read the terms and conditions on the Countryside Mobility prior to hiring a tramper.
What is a tramper?
The tramper is an electric all-terrain mobility scooter designed specifically to cover rough ground and grass safely. It can go up and down slopes, over bumps and tree roots, through shallow puddles, mud and soft ground.
Explore the garden
The tramper can be used to explore two routes through the garden, one throught the wooded area of the pink route and the other on an 'out and back' into the historic walled garden. This route is open all year (weather permitting).
Who can use it?
The tramper is for use by anyone who struggles with walking distances or up hills, or who has limited mobility of any kind. You don’t have to be registered disabled or have a Blue Badge to use it.
With a top speed of four miles an hour it can keep pace with the briskest walking companion, meaning you can keep up with your family and enjoy a countryside walk.
How to hire the tramper
We recommened contacting the team to book your slot five days prior to your visit. To book, please email email@example.com.
During the autumn and winter months the tramper can be hired at 11am. The vehicle is available on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday (we will always try and accommodate alternative days).
Please be aware that all tramper users must be accompanied by one other person.
Tramper hire is free, but you’ll need to become a member of Countryside Mobility. This costs £10.00 per year or £2.50 for a two week ‘taster membership’. We can sign you up for membership at the courtyard and give you training on how to use the tramper, which takes around 10-15 minutes.
We recommend that you read the terms and conditions on the Countryside Mobility website before getting here. This will help you to assess whether you’ll be able to use the tramper, saving you time when registering for membership. Once you’ve signed up for membership you can use trampers at 46 Countryside Mobility sites around South West England.
