Helping Guests Go the Extra Mile with EV Charging point advice

We always welcome guests personally and make sure that they feel at home on arrival at Longlands.

Introductions over, conversation often turns to how the journey was and if traffic was heavy… Increasingly, as cars are upgraded, another topic comes to the fore… ‘So where’s the nearest charging point to Longlands?’

We’re a certified Green Tourism holiday provider so we like to help guests that are going that extra mile for the environment.

We don’t have EV charging points at Longlands but we can certainly charge your car for you should you need. There is an external plug socket outside of our house that you’re welcome to use. Just ask us to show you where it is…

The nearest public EV charging point to us is at the Pack O’Cards pub in Combe Martin. It’s 4 miles away from Longlands. The pub has an Electric Vehicle Charging Station (rolec2 car 7.2kw 32A0) which is open to private or business users during your visit to the pub. A one hour charge is approx £2.50.

Slightly further away, 5 miles from Longlands travelling North East, is the National Trust Heddon Valley charging station. This is a lovely spot to visit with beautiful walks and a restaurant to stop for lunch or drinks. The charging station is just before the left hand entrance to the National Trust car park. It’s free of charge but the Trust do ask for a £5 donation if possible.

For a wider selection of charging points for your car, and to get up to date information on whether the stations are working, we’d advise checking out Zap Map. Zap Map is a website which lets you plot your car journey, showing charging points along the way.
