Tractor and Trailer Rides
A visit to Mortehoe is not complete without taking a tractor and trailer ride out with National Trust and Mortehoe Museum. With two different trips to choose from, this is the easiest way to enjoy the rugged and dramatic coastline around Mortehoe as well as hopefully enjoying some unique wildlife encounters.
Tuesday, 28th May, every Tuesday in July and August and on Tuesday, 3rd September at 10.30 a.m., 12 noon, 2 p.m. & 3.30 p.m.
Take the tractor and trailer out to Bull Point with the Mortehoe Museum team. There has been a lighthouse here since 1879 as after numerous bad storms, and wreckers luring ships aground, many ships were wrecked along this coastline. The current lighthouse was built in 1972. Enjoy the dramatic views as you drive down towards Bull Point and find out more about this unique place
Wednesday, 29th May and every Tuesday during July and August at 10.30 a.m., 11.15 a.m., 12 noon, 12.45 p.m., 2 p.m., 2.45 p.m. & 3.30 p.m.
Admire the driving skills of National Trust staff as they take you down past the church to Morte Point. With tales of the notorious smugglers and wreckers, the role of Morte Point in World War II, and a stop to see the local residents – Atlantic seals – you will get a great understanding of how National Trust now looks after and cares for this landscape for the benefit of the local wildlife.
Taking a tractor and trailer ride is great for people of all ages and all abilities: Fantastic for families with young children, or if you are less able, or a wheelchair user, it’s a great way to get out into the countryside with minimal effort.
