Electric Vehicle Charging Points (EVCP)
Dedicated complimentary EVCP at each cottage
Cottage in the Dales are delighted to offer Electric Vehicle Charging Points (EVCP) at each of our cottages. Guests can charge their electric or hybrid cars for FREE when staying at our cottages. Each cottage has a dedicated Type 2 EVCP, which includes the Type 2 to Type 2 cable. So whilst you are staying at the cottage, you can recharge your car ready to go out and about and explore the Yorkshire Dales. These EVCP are not available for public use.
Limited public EVCP in the Yorkshire Dales
As of April 2019, there are a very limited number of public charging points within the Yorkshire Dales National Park, mainly at hotels. We understand there are plans for the first ones to be available in National Park car parks for public use by autumn 2019, details of which we will publish once the information is known. Hence, please note this current restriction if you have a pure electric car with a limited range, especially given the hills in the area too!
An EVCP for our hybrid Mini too!
As a green business, we've invested in a Mini Countryman Hybrid 4x4 so we can drive around locally almost totally on electric. Hence, we also have a dedicated ECVP for our business use. We can recharge the Mini at Inglenook during a changeover too! That's 4 x EVCP we have in total within the business. By doing so, we hope in our own small way to help minimise the environmental impact of our business on this beautiful area.
