The Tramper

As part of ongoing work to make Powderham more accessible, we are pleased to now offer an all-terrain mobility scooter (the Tramper) for hire by visitors.

Tramper hire is offered in partnership with the award-winning Countryside Mobility initiative that has a network of 50 hire locations at beauty spots around the South West.

To avoid disappointment, we strongly recommend that you book in advance by calling 01626 890 243 or emailing

Using the Tramper

If you are using the Tramper for the first time you will be taken through a short introduction to the Tramper and become a member of Countryside Mobility (2 week taster membership – £2.50 or £10 for an annual membership). The membership provides full insurance and enables you to enjoy Tra,pers at all their hire locations. Please bring some form of photo ID and address. 

Existing Countryside Mobility members should bring proof of their current membership.

Our thanks to the Exeter Chiefs Foundation for helping to part-fund the purchase of the Tramper by Countryside Mobility and enabling this opportunity to improve the welcome at Powderham.

Quiet Hour

On Thursdays and Sundays, the Castle will be open for Quiet Hour, for visitors who would prefer to visit the Castle in a less bright and calmer environment. 

Book your slot on Thursdays or Sundays from 2pm – 3pm below.
