Access Things To Do

Explore the South West with freedom and ease. You can now access areas that may have been difficult or impossible in the past and experience everything that being outdoors in the region can offer.

For those that have limited mobility of any kind, there’s lots to do. Sidmouth is a lovely, very flat seaside own, with the promenade, shops, cafes and museums. Exeter, which can be reached by train is also very flat in the centre and had a good bus service. We can advise on where to go, how to get there and which restaurants and pubs that would be suitable whilst you are here.

For those that are more ambitious, Countryside Mobility provides safe, enjoyable and easy access to the South West’s countryside and visitor attractions for anyone who has difficulty walking, through an off road mobility scooter hire scheme.

Their all terrain mobility scooter hire is available at a wide range of wheelchair accessible outdoor visitor attractions and their wheelchair accessible Wheelyboats provide access for all to inland lakes and waterways.
