Sand Chair Locations in Cornwall

Cornwall Mobility, in partnership with Disability Cornwall & Isles of Scilly, work with Cornwall Council as well as a diverse range of coastal charities and businesses in providing all-terrain wheelchairs, also known as sand chairs, for the public to use on a number of beaches in Cornwall.

The all-terrain wheelchairs have been designed for outdoor use and have large inflatable wheels which allow them to roll over sand and pebbles with remarkable ease giving a comfortable and safe ride.

This has allowed people with mobility challenges the pleasure and freedom to access and enjoy Cornwall’s beaches where they may have found it more difficult in the past.

The all-terrain wheelchairs are not suitable for all beaches as some are too steep, remote and dangerous for the chairs to be used safely. Cornwall Mobility has ascertained that the beaches where it deploys these chairs for public use are safe and suitable for their use.

The sand chairs are available along the Cornish coastline as indicated in the map above.

It is advised that you contact the hire outlet beforehand to ensure that the sand chair is available.

Hire is usually free with a form of surety (driver's licence, hotel key etc).

ANSWER:

Thanks Gwen for posting - it's great to find out about so many locations in such a popular holiday destination.

Just a question from watching your You Tube video...Do the chairs change from the seating position with legs bend to the legs straight position? Or are they different types of chairs?

Types of beach wheelchair
by: Anonymous

There are two types of beach wheelchair - the seat of one type is set in a 'straight leg' position; the seat of the other is set in a 'legs down' position.
