Batsford offers less able visitors greater access to the Arboretum thanks to our two all-terrain vehicles called Trampers which are available to members of the South West Countryside Mobility Scheme. Members are able to book a single slot only at 10.00am, 12.00pm or 14.00pm. This ensure the maximum number of peolple get the benefit of the Trampers, particularly at busy times
Membership of the Countryside Mobility Scheme costs £2.50 for a two week taster membership or £10 for the year. Visitors who want to join the scheme when they get to Batsford will have to take part in short 10-minute training session which then gives access to Trampers across the South West.
Visitors who have already signed up as members of the South West Countryside Mobility Scheme can hire our Trampers for free, just paying the normal concessionary entrance fee.
