National Trust Studland

One of the most popular walks on England’s coast, the stunning views offered along this iconic stretch of coastline to Old Harry Rocks can now be accessed by hiring an all terrain mobility scooter (Tramper). 

The Location

Located at the far end of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, Old Harry Rocks is one of the most well know locations along the south coast of England. Leaving the village of Studland the Tramper makes easy work of the hill up through the woodland. The views then start to open up to the north as you look across Studland Bay towards Poole Harbour, one of the largest natural harbours in the world. As you reach the peninsula the chalk rocks of the headland and Old Harry Rocks becomes visible. The views across the channel extend past Bournemouth to the New Forest coast and another famous landmark, The Needles on the Isle of Wight. It’s no wonder this walk made its way to the Top 20 of ITV’s 100 Favourite Walks.

Winter location

Please note that during part of the winter, the Tramper is relocated a short distance up the Studland Peninsula to National Trust’s Knoll Beach facility. Here the Tramper is available to explore a short woodland trail. There are also visitor facilities such as accessible toilets and a cafe at this location. During the winter, please use the contact details provided below to establish whether the Tramper is based at Knoll Beach.

Tramper Hire

As this is a very popular destination, advance booking of the Tramper is strongly recommended to avoid disappointment – particular during spring and summer weekends and school holidays.
