Cottages with Electric Car or Vehicle Charging Points

As an owner of an electric car or a plug-in hybrid, you want the peace of mind that you can recharge your car easily and safely when on holiday. The public charging point infrastructure is beginning to improve, with access points appearing at motorway service stations and supermarkets across the nation. There are even mutual exchange networks where members agree to provide access to their own charging points.

Electric car owners can also benefit from initiatives to get tourists to hire EVs when on holiday. Visitors taking holidays in the Brecon Beacons and the New Forest are being encouraged to use electric vehicles to explore the area. As a result charging points have been introduced by a range of businesses across the National Parks, including pubs, caf's and visitor attractions.

But when all is said and done 'range anxiety' is still an issue for many green car owners and it can significantly impact on your holiday choice. Although an electric vehicle can be plugged into a normal domestic socket, you cannot normally guarantee that this would be possible even at eco friendly holiday properties. A whole raft of safety checks need to be undertaken to ensure that the circuit, fuses and sockets can withstand the additional current. You would also need to ensure that the self catering property has enough space for the electric vehicle to draw alongside the socket ' connecting cables are notoriously short, and you should never use an extension.

The safe, efficient solution is to holiday in a cottage that has its own EV charging point. Stay in holiday accommodation with a dedicated home charging unit for electric cars and you can be sure that this will have been installed by a professional electrician, have its own dedicated electrical spur and is guaranteed to handle the high electrical draw. It is safer and faster than using a standard socket. The following holiday cottages offer charge points for ultra low emission vehicles (ULEV).
