Due to COVID-19 we have been unable to offer a tramper hire service for the past few months. The good news is that we are now taking limited advance bookings again. We have had to make a few changes for our staff and visitors safety, so hire will temporarily be moved from the information centre and shop to the rangers' office opposite, in the cobbled courtyard.
Booking a Tramper
Currently we can only accommodate 2 bookings a day (am and pm), with trampers going out one at a time.
The available hire times are:
We appreciate that for some people booking in advance can be difficult, as you may not know how you will feel on the day, but unfortunately trampers will need to be booked at least 24 hours in advance. This is due to the safety measures we have in place for our staff and users.
Please contact the rangers' office by phone: 01629 533870 or in person to make a booking. If you need to cancel your booking, please give us as much notice as possible so we can reallocate it to another user.
If you're new to the use of trampers, please note that we are currently only able to offer inductions Monday to Friday. We are not currently able to offer inductions at the weekend.
Inductions consist of a 30 minute introduction to the use and safety of the machine. Staff will give you more details on where inductions take place, where to collect and drop off the tramper and your options for payment, when you call us to book.
All touch points on our trampers are cleaned thoroughly before use and between each user booking, so you can be certain you will always have a clean tramper to use.
