Greater mobility with the all-terrain Tramper at Trengwainton
Now everybody can enjoy the sea views from the top of the garden thanks to the all-terrain Tramper which is available to hire. It’s been supplied by our friends at the not for profit organisation Countryside Mobility.
What makes a Tramper different from other wheelchairs
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.
Who can use it?
The Tramper is for use by anyone who struggles with walking. You don’t have to be registered disabled or have a Blue Badge to use it; it can simply be that your difficulties are caused by age or a permanent or temporary condition.
With a top speed of four miles an hour it can keep pace with the briskest walking companion.
How to hire the Tramper
To use the Tramper 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 reception and give you training on how to use the Tramper, which takes around 10-15 minutes.
We recommend that you read the medical and health information and terms and conditions of use (opens as a PDF) before getting here as this will help you to assess whether you’ll be able to use the Tramper and will save you time when registering for membership.
Benefits of membership of Countryside Mobility
Once you’ve signed up for Countryside Mobility membership this then allows you access to nearly 40 Countryside Mobility sites around South West England – and they’re hoping to add even more.

We strongly recommend that you telephone us in advance to make a booking by calling 01736 363148 (option 2) during normal opening hours (10.30-5 Sunday to Thursday). There’s no charge for hiring the Tramper.
