The Langdale Estate has joined forces with Cumbrian charity Lake District Mobility and Penrith branding specialist Ast Signs, to help make the surrounding countryside more accessible for its guests.
The estate, which welcomes over 42,000 guests each year, is home to Brimstone Hotel, Langdale Hotel, Stove restaurant and 100 timeshare lodges. It has teamed up with Lake District Mobility – a local charity working to make outdoor trails in the Lake District accessible to people with disabilities or limited mobility – to offer two ‘Trampers’ for guests to hire during their stay.
Trampers are electric all-terrain scooters that have been designed specifically to cover rough ground, mud and grass safely and enable guests with mobility difficulties to access local walks and landscapes without the need for a car, and with companions who are on foot.
Leading transport-branding specialist Ast Signs, based in Penrith, has supported the initiative by designing, manufacturing and fitting an eye-catching vehicle wrap for one of the Trampers.
Nick Lancaster, Managing Director of Langdale Estate said: “We are keen that all our guests have the best possible experience and a key part of that is ensuring that Langdale Estate and its surrounding area are accessible to all.
“The Trampers look smart and will open up so many more opportunities for our guests to enjoy the local landscape. This is really important progress to us. We’ve been proud to work with Lake District Mobility and are grateful to Ast Signs for its support.”
Guests using the Trampers can enjoy great Lake District National Park Authority Miles Without Stiles routes from Skelwith Bridge to The Sticklebarn at the head of the Langdale Valley where there are brilliant views. The routes are around three miles each way and ideal for pushchairs too.
