We work in partnership with the Countryside Mobility Scheme to provide visitors with limited mobility with a way of getting around the Gardens using an all-terrain mobility scooter, known as a Tramper.
The Tramper is available to hire from the Welcome Centre. Hire times are Monday to Friday between 9.30 am and 3.00 pm (last booking); and Saturday and Sunday 12 noon to 3.00 pm (last booking).
Training is provided on how to use the Tramper along with a map and guidance outlining the designated Tramper routes in the Gardens.
Please note that some routes may be subject to change due to adverse weather conditions, works taking place in the Gardens or special events and any changes to routes will be advised at the time of hire.
Only assistance dogs are allowed in the Dartington Hall Gardens. Elsewhere on the estate, dogs on leads are permitted.
