For those who have difficulty walking, the Tramper mobility scooter is available for hire at the Visitor Centre.

The Tramper provides safe, enjoyable and easy access around most of the trails on Avon Heath. It is extremely robust and comfortable and is regularly used.

Tramper in use for Easter Trail Cath and Ben (002)


Users must be members of the Countryside Mobility Scheme, which also enables use of Trampers scooters at other sites that have them locally and further afield too. Application for membership can be made at the Visitor Centre – do check the terms and conditions before coming. There will be a training session of maximum 15 mins to ensure the Tramper can be used comfortably and safely and a deposit is required while in use.
