Essential Mobility is based in Barnstaple, North Devon, and we are often asked about the best attractions in the area with easy access or wheelchair access. Whether indoors or outdoors, it is good to know places that are suitable for all-terrain mobility scooters and wheelchairs.
Milky Way Adventure Park, Bideford
The biggest adventure park in North Devon has indoor and outdoor play areas built for adults and children, and the site is very wheelchair friendly. There is loads of seating throughout the park, and activities such as archery and laser shooting are fully accessible.
The Big Sheep, Bideford
Rides, animals and family entertainment at The Big Sheep are very easily accessible by wheelchairs, and parking places are designated for registered disabled persons near the main entrance. There are accessible toilets and eating areas for people in mobility scooters and wheelchairs.
Watermouth Family Theme Park and Castle, Ilfracombe
The Victorian castle full of interesting treasures, displays and curios, theme park and gardens is a popular local attraction. The majority of the castle and gardens are accessible to wheelchair users, with tarmac pathways. The best route to follow for people with low mobility is signposted.
Broomhill Art Hotel and Sculpture Gardens, Muddiford
One of the largest collections of contemporary sculpture in England, Broomhill is a delightful place to spend the afternoon and does have wheelchair access. There are parts of the grounds which are uneven for wheelchairs, but the main building is accessible.
Tarka Trail, Barnstaple to Bideford
The Tarka Trail, which runs alongside the River Taw in North Devon, is very suitable for people with low mobility. The trail is flat and tarmacked, and there are places along the way where you can stop for refreshments such as Fremington and Instow and plenty of place to rest with incredible views of the Taw and Torridge estuary.
