One of the most popular Lake District sites on Euan’s Guide, Tarn Hows is one of many lakes in the Lake District. The circular route around the lake lets visitors enjoy spectacular views of the fells and tarns as they explore.
Visitors have given Tarn Hows positive reviews for its accessibility and for how much they enjoyed using an off-road scooter! One visitor said: “The Lake District of England was one of the top three highlights of our three-week trip throughout the UK! It was because of this lovely great vehicle, the scenery and the people that made it so spectacular”
With its white cliffs, blue waters and charming seaside shops and cafes, Lulworth Cove is a favourite stop for people visiting Dorset’s Jurassic Coast. There is a trail leading from the top of the cliffs down to the beach in the Cove itself. There is an off-road mobility scooter available for visitors to hire from the visitor centre at the start of the trail. Booking is encouraged as there is only one scooter available at the time of writing. You can book scooter hire by telephone before you visit (01929400155).
Another highly rated beauty spot with off-road mobility scooters for hire is Bradgate Park, near Leicester. You can take a scooter along the tarmac and dirt paths that criss-cross more than 800 acres of forest along the River Lin. Bradgate Park has been a habitat for deer for centuries, and visitors can still see them on and around the trails. Some of the trees have been found to be over 500 years old!
Scooters can be hired from the visitor centre free of charge after a short introduction session. For more information on the park, click here.
There’s lots of accessible things to do at Moors Valley! The park offers off-road mobility scooters to visitors wanting to explore acres of forest on a network of paths along a series of signposted walks, from a short ¾ mile walk all the way up to a 5 mile adventure taking you all the way around the park!
Visitors can also get up close to snakes, millipedes, mice and more at the Ranger Den next to the visitor centre! You might also see some of the bird life in the forest at the bird feeding station nearby. Seasonal events aimed at both adults and children celebrate the different animal and plant life on show at the park through the year.
One reviewer said that the trails around Killerton House in Devon are “One of the best Tramper trails I have been on.” Visitors can explore the grounds and landscape garden of this 18th century stately home in the Devon countryside. Along with several miles of trails, the gardens also harbour hidden gems including a working watermill, a mediaeval house and views across Dartmoor! Killerton House has a 5-star rating on Euan’s Guide. For more information about booking scooter hire, click here.
