Electric vehicle charging facilities

Electric vehicle charging facilities

Paving the way for ecotourism on our campsites

You told us you wanted more on-site eco-friendly facilities to help support those of you who have already switched over to hybrid or electric vehicles. In January 2020 we started offering on-pitch hybrid and electric vehicle charging from as little as £2 a day* by plugging in your vehicle via your outfit (not directly into the bollard)^ across the majority of our Club campsites.

We listened to your feedback and we’re excited to announce that we've now introduced five brand new electric vehicle charging stations across Cayton Village Club Campsite, in North Yorkshire.

Here’s what you need to do when staying at Cayton Village Club Campsite…

Frequently asked questions

What if I am staying at Cayton Village?

Members staying at Cayton Village have the ability to charge their electric vehicles from a number of dedicated bollards located in the car parks and on some serviced pitches. The technology is simple and allows for different vehicle types and different charging speeds and 6 options in terms of how much can be purchased using contactless payment.

At Cayton Village each of the 10 dedicated charging outlet is a Type 2 IEC62196 socket and will allow for charging from 3.7 to 21KW depending on the type of car connected. Each charging point allows for 'Mode 3 fast charging' to IEC 61851 standard.

What restrictions do you have when charging vehicles?

To ensure that you charge safely, we ask that you keep both habitation and car charging demand to a reasonable usage level and that you plug the car into a mains socket within your outfit, not directly into the bollard.

Which sites/pitches is this applicable to?

This is available at all sites except Steamer Quay. Any pitch that has an electric hook up bollard included can be used to charge an electric/hybrid car.

How can I pay to charge my car?

If you wish to charge your vehicle from pitch, then please speak to our staff either upon arrival, or during your stay and let them know how many charges you wish to make. They will then be able to take payment from you.

What if I don't know how many times I want to charge my car during my stay?

That's ok, just come and let us know when you do know, or come and see us after you have charged if you prefer. The site's staff can take payment at any time when the reception is open.

How quickly will my car charge?

This depends on the car however we expect a trickle charge of no more than 2.3kw.

Based upon 2.3kWh the below table gives an approximate indication of time based on battery size.
