Powderham Castle have recently added a ‘Quiet Hour’ to their range of accessible services.
Our Countryside Mobility partner Powderham Castle aims to make their heritage site fully accessible so that everyone can enjoy the beautiful castle and grounds.
Powderham Castle already offers one of our Tramper mobility scooters for hire under the Countryside Mobility scheme. The trampers are all-terrain mobility scooters which are available for hire by visitors. The Tramper is easy and safe to use, and provides access to the Estate on a choice of routes that have been audited by Living Options. The Tramper is available to anyone over 14 years old who would benefit from mobility assistance.More info: Tramper at Powderham
Exeter Chiefs Foundation kindly helped fund the purchase of the Countryside Mobility Tramper at Powderham.
Powderham now offer a Quiet Hour for people who need to access the site in a less bright and calmer environment. The Castle opens for ‘Quiet Hour’ on Thursdays from 10am – 11am and Sundays from 3pm – 4pm. You can book your Quiet Hour slot online via the Powderham booking system.Book your Quiet Hour
