Visitors to Fyne Court's wild 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 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 the yellow route through the woodland which takes in views across the 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 recommend contacting the team to book your slot at least 48 hours before your visit. To book, please send an email. This inbox is checked daily, Monday to Friday.

The tramper is available from 10am–4pm on most days.

Please be aware that all Tramper users must be accompanied by one other person.

Join Countryside Mobility

Tramper hire is free, but you’ll need to become a member of Countryside Mobility. This costs £15 per year, £5 for a two week ‘taster membership’ or £3 for a day. 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.

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 46 Countryside Mobility sites around South West England.
