Electric vehicle charging

Electric vehicle charging

Paving the way for ecotourism on our campsites

You told us you wanted us to increase our eco-friendly offering and help support those of you who have already switched over to hybrid or electric vehicles.

As of January 2020, we now offer electric vehicle charging from as little as £2 a day* across the majority of our campsites. Not only that, we are continuing to future proof our Club and our campsites to make sure we can offer you as many eco-friendly, energy- and water-saving alternatives as we can.

We're excited to be working towards a greener and more sustainable camping future whether you're in a tent, campervan, caravan, motorhome or anything in between.

 

*Hybrid vehicles charged at £2 a day and electric vehicles charged at £8 a day.

Frequently asked questions

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.
