All terrain mobility scooter (Tramper)

There are two all-terrain mobility scooters (Trampers) available to hire from Botallack Count House. If you have mobility difficulties, the Trampers will let you explore the coastal scenery and industrial heritage of the Tin Coast via designated routes.

The Tramper is an electric all-terrain mobility scooter designed specifically to cover rough ground and grass safely.

Trampers are available for use for anyone who has limited mobility of any kind or struggles walking up hills or distances. It can be used by anyone who needs it as part of the Countryside Mobility initiative. You'll need to become a member of Countryside Mobility with a single use or two week trial options available or a one year membership.

We strongly advise that you telephone us in advance to make a booking by calling 01736 786156 or you can email us at
