Accessibility at Stackpole

Visitors using the new beach wheelchair

Our team have been working hard to improve accessibility across the Stackpole Estate to enable more visitors to enjoy and explore this special place.

Stackpole accessibility guide

Take a look at our Stackpole accessibility guide for information on borrowing mobility vehicles, recommended routes and some handy hints on getting around, facilities and things to see and do.

Borrow our mobility vehicles

A tramper (an all-terrain mobility scooter) and a beach wheelchair are both available to borrow at Stackpole. Our mobility vehicles were purchased following visitors’ kind donations to help us improve accessibility on the estate.

Who can use the mobility vehicles?

Our vehicles are for use by anyone who struggles with walking distances or has limited mobility of any kind. The tramper is suitable for ages 14 and over, with the beach wheelchair recommended for ages four and above with a maximum weight limit of 95kg.

Please be aware that all users must be accompanied by an adult and for the tramper, users need to be able to walk 500 metres in case of an emergency.

Where can you use the tramper and beach wheelchair?

You can discover Stackpole’s woodlands, designed landscape and dramatic coastline during your visit.

We’ve been working hard to make our paths more accessible and we now have three recommended routes for accompanied tramper, assisted wheelchairs and pushchairs. As an outdoor site, please note that there are undulating paths with mixed terrain.

View our Stackpole accessibility map guide (PDF / 2.8MB) download   for the routes or find out more below.

How do you book?

Both vehicles are free to borrow from Stackpole Centre, with a refundable deposit of £10 required on the day.

Pre-booking is advisable, so if you're interested in using the vehicles, please contact the Stackpole team on 01646 623110 for more information.
