Hiring the Tramper:

As staffing varies between days, advance booking is essential to guarantee use of the Tramper. Due to the changes during the pandemic the Tramper is currently available on Wednesdays only.

Call the South West Lakes Trust Head Office – 01566 771930 – before lunchtime on the Monday 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.

Payment by card is not possible at this location – cash or cheque payments only. Hire fee is £4 for 2 hours (plus the relevant Countryside Mobility fee – £2.50 for 2 weeks or £10 for 1 year – if you are a first time user and therefore need to become a member).

Supported by Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

As one of the original four Trampers that started the Countryside Mobility initiative in 2010, our Tramper at Siblyback was in need of a bit of a make over to bring it back to its original appearance and provide reliability for future visitors.

We’re very grateful to the Cornwall AONB for providing the funds in 2021 to give the Tramper a refurbishment through its Environment and Landscape Fund. It will make such a difference in enabling more visitors to enjoy this beautiful place who would otherwise find this difficult or impossible.
