Electric Car Charging at Birkdale House


3rd October 2020

We are delighted to be able to offer our guests an electric car charging point at Birkdale House.

For any luxury accommodation in the Lake District, electric car charging is the new must have, especially in the current climate when so many of us are taking our holidays right here in the UK. And, of course, taking your car with you is just one of the benefits of a staycation.

Nowadays, with so many of us making an effort to go greener, the popularity of electric and hybrid cars is increasing all the time and we want to help as much as possible. If we can encourage the use of electric vehicles, it will minimise the effect of cars on our precious environment.

Which is why we have installed a ‘Pod Point’ electric vehicle charging point at Birkdale House which is free for our guests to use. Now you can recharge your car as well as yourself. Simply plug it in and relax, knowing you’ll be fully charged to explore the breath-taking beauty of the Lake District National Park.

Pod Point

Pod Point have been industry innovators for over ten years and believe that travel should not damage the earth. Their mission is to build a network of smart EV charge points everywhere drivers need them.

To date they have provided over 158 million miles of electric driving, more than 75,000 EV charge points and a network of 3,000+ public charging bays, making them the largest independent electric vehicle charge point provider in the UK.

What’s more, their electric car charging points are compatible with all plug-in vehicle brands.

Explore by car

You may be enjoying the luxury self catering that Birkdale House has to offer, but that doesn’t mean you won’t want to get out and about exploring the Lake District. And as the Lake District National Park covers an area of over 900 square miles, it’s no lie that the best way to explore glistening lakes, rugged fells and historic towns and villages, steeped in literary tradition, is by car. After all, what’s a trip to the Lake District without seeing the likes of Lake Windermere, Scafell Pike, William Wordsworth’s cottage or Beatrix Potter’s Hilltop Farm.

With our solo freestanding 7kW Pod Point charger, you can relax in style while your car powers up for new adventures. Furthermore, as electric car charging in the Lake District gathers momentum, the number of electric car charging points is increasing all the time, meaning range anxiety is now a thing of the past.

Happy exploring!
