    We visited Stover in June and had a great day! My husband has MS and loves the countryside - so the Countryside Mobility scheme is brill! Stover is a great site - and has an aerial walkway which is flat and easy with the Tramper - great fun looking at the bird feeders they put out and so many 'criters' in the treetops. The lakeside walk is a must - dragonflys galore! All level and easy. A wonderful no stress day for us both (no pushing wheelchairs here!) Staff so brilliant too - the ranger got some books out to help us identify some of the unusual dragonflys! Highly recommend a trip!
  • Great day with a big thanks

    Great day with a big thanks to the rangers and countryside mobility south west, being able to get out into the warm spring air with my family and dog. Thanks.
