Tramper Hire

A Tramper mobility scooter is available for hire at Siblyback Lake, generously supplied by The Countryside Mobility Scheme.

Enjoy the outdoors independently with the use of the Tramper, available for hire for £4 for 2 hours. Our Tramper allows less mobile visitors to explore the lake and can be hired out through the Countryside team. As staffing varies between days, advance booking is essential to guarantee use of the Tramper. Call the South West Lakes Trust Head Office on 01566 771930 before 3pm on the day before you wish to hire the Tramper (or earlier if possible). Tramper hire may be possible on arrival if staff are present but this cannot be guaranteed.
