National Trust Woodchester Park

NEW FOR 2024!

Explore Woodchester Park in The Cotswolds with ease when you hire the Tramper, all terrain mobility scooter.

Close to The Cotswolds escarpment the Park is tucked in a steep sided wooded valley which takes in a chain of lakes and an unfinished Gothic Mansion, Woodchester House (not operated by National Trust).

The new visitor facilities at the Tinkley Gate offer the perfect start or finish to your visit. The café offers a tempting combination of delicious refreshments (including specialties from the wood fired oven) and sweeping views.  

Tramper Routes

Initially, visitors will be able to enjoy the route closest to the visitor centre which gives a great introduction to the Park. Lasting about 30 minutes it passes through open meadows and woodland taking you part of the way down the valley side with views further into the beautiful valley.

The Tramper can also be used to explore the elderflower orchard – a must see in the Spring.

Later in the year improvements are planned which will create a suitable link for the Tramper to access a wide range of options taking you around the Park.

Hiring the Tramper

The Tramper is available 7 days of the week, 10:00am-12:30pm and 1:00pm-3:30pm.

To ensure that the Tramper is available and staff present to hire it to you it is strongly recommended to reserve the Tramper in advance using the following contact details.

No hire fee is charged but any donations towards offering this service are appreciated.

Arrival at Tinkley Gate – Ensure that you follow directions specifically to Tinkley Gate Car Park rather than signposting to Woodchester Park. Accessible parking spaces are available just beyond the main car park from where there is a short walk to the Welcome Centre where the Tramper is based (just before the café).

If you prefer, a visitor can be dropped off before the vehicle is parked in the main car park.
