As we move into summer, with (hopefully!) plenty of dry, warm days to enjoy, a reminder that there is an all-terrain scooter, known as a Tramper, available to hire from the Tamar Trails Centre, Gulworthy, near Tavistock.

The Tamar Trails were created as part of the Tamar Valley AONB’s £7million Mining Heritage Project. 25km of multi-use routes are now available for all to enjoy.

As the Trails are not particularly wheelchair friendly, the Tramper makes access possible for anyone who might struggle with mobility in the countryside.

Kate Blake, from Tamar Adventures who run the Centre at Tamar Trails, says; “The Tramper is crucial to our aims of making the Trails accessible to as wide an audience as possible. At just £2.50 per hour, it’s an affordable way of getting into the heart of the Trails and getting that bit closer to the abundance of wildlife here.”

To hire the Tramper, users need to sign up on arrival to the Countryside Mobility Scheme (£10/year or £2.50/ 2 week ‘Taster’). Membership then provides unlimited access to the 36 Countryside Mobility hire sites around South West England. Advanced booking of the Tramper is essential. Further information and to book – 01822 833409, Tamar Trails Centre.
