Tramper hire at Glendurgan Garden

Visitors to Glendurgan Garden can hire an all-terrain tramper vehicle. They’re available through a partnership with Countryside Mobility, a charity initiative to make countryside sites more accessible to all.

What is a Tramper?

The tramper is an electric all-terrain mobility scooter designed specifically to cover uneven ground. It can go up and down slopes, over bumps and tree roots, through shallow puddles, mud and sand.

Explore the garden

The tramper can be taken all the way down to the beach in Durgan via the purple route. There are benches and tramper parking bays to stop and admire the views as you head down the valley.

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 4mph it can keep pace with the briskest of walking companions, meaning you can keep up with your family and enjoy the garden.

How to hire the Tramper

Contact the team in advance to book your slot as we only have one tramper and it does get booked up. To book, please send an email to or call 01326 252020.

The tramper is available from 11:00am - 1:30pm or 2:00pm – 4:30pm on most days.

We advise that if it is your first time using the tramper at Glendurgan Garden that you are accompanied by one other person.

Join Countryside Mobility

You’ll need to become a member of Countryside Mobility in order to hire the tramper. This costs £15 per year, £5 for a two week ‘taster membership’, or £3 for one day. 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.

Please 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 55+ Countryside Mobility sites around South West England.
