Enabling easy access to the South West's beauty spots

Most Hire Locations Now Open

Date Posted: 8 September 2020

To access the Current Availability list visit our 'Current' webpage. 

September is one of the best times for enjoying the beautiful coast and countryside of South West England and there is now widest selection of hire locations now offering Tramper hire again. 

Since lockdown restrictions eased we have been providing support to our partner sites to enable them to resume Tramper hire safely. Each week has seen more locations added to our Current list and the majority of partner sites are now open again or planning to resume in the next fortnight. Unfortunately, limited staffing and the difficulties of integrating Trampers into one way systems introduced has meant that it has sometimes taken longer than expected for sites to resume and it is likely that a handful may not be able to resume this year. 

Nonetheless, we are delighted to be able to offer such a great selection of locations again and have been receiving some lovely comments from people able to once again enjoy the great outdoors with friends and family. 

In the coming weeks we will continue to work with those still hoping to resume and may even be able to reveal a brand new hire location!

As staffing levels remain lower than normal and most locations have only 1 Tramper we strongly recommend that those looking to hire a Tramper book ahead - in some locations it is essential.

Autumn will also see Series 2 of our Inside Out show enabling you to continue access the countryside from your home. We've got some great interviews already recorded ready to share.

Thank you again for your patience and support over the last few months - it has really been appreciated.
