Highlands End Holiday Park in Bridport, Dorset, is offering an all-terrain mobility scooter for guests who have difficulty with walking to hire. 

The acquisition of the Tramper coincides with the recent opening of a new scooter-friendly route, created by the South West Coast Path Association, that runs by the park. 

Highlands End director Martin Cox said that mobility-impaired park guests could now enjoy spectacular paths and beaches which were formerly no-go areas to them.

Training on how to use the scooter is provided, as is a map which shows the safety-audited route available. The subsidised hire fee is just £2.50 per hour.

 “I believe that we are the first holiday park in Britain to provide the Tramper, and we are all greatly impressed with its comfort and ability to tackle off-road terrain!” said Martin.

Tramper hire is available at 50 beauty spots in the South West, and is supported by National Lottery funding through Heritage Ability and its sister-project Countryside Mobility.

Last year, Highlands End took the Dorset Holiday Park of the Year at the Dorset Tourism Awards. While this year, the South West Tourism Awards saw Martin named as the winner of the 2020 award for Outstanding Contribution to Tourism.
