Electric car charging points in Exmoor mean you can recharge your car – and yourself – on your next visit!
With the amount of electric and hybrid vehicles on the road growing every month, the chances are that many visitors will soon need a boost whilst enjoying time in Exmoor.
EV Rapid Charge Points in Exmoor
EV charging points in Exmoor charging points are springing up. As a result, this Autumn, we’ve chosen a few of our favourite spots to top up weary batteries.
The Exmoor White Horse Inn – Exford
One of the largest Inns on Exmoor is home to a rapid charging point. This is particularly useful as Exford is at the heart of the National Park and equal distance between our largest towns.
The White Horse Inn is a 16th Century hostelry with spacious public rooms and a well-stocked bar, reputedly with 200 whiskies and a wide range of local ales.
The excellent carvery menu provides the perfect excuse to enjoy a long lunch while the car regains its spark!
Enjoy time in Minehead
Charging points for electric cars in Minehead are popping up as well.
So, here’s an idea. Why not pop the car on charge either at Alexandra Road or at the Premier Inn? Then, take a Zipp Mobility Scooter to the seafront, to the town centre or just take a tour around the town!
These fast charge points will top up your batteries whilst you enjoy a walk/scoot around the town for a spot of shopping, a light lunch or just a refreshing walk along the beach!
Additional fast charging points have recently been added at McDonalds (with added McFlurry!) and at North Road Car Park near Blenheim Gardens.
Power in Porlock
Porlock is not only in our top five ‘must-see’ destinations in Exmoor, it’s also one of the most popular places to top up your EV before tackling the famous steep hill!
A Spark at the Steep – in Dunster
Whether you’re staying at The Oval in Dunster or visiting this medieval village while enjoying our Minehead cottages, you’ll be pleased to find a 22kw charger at Dunster Steep Car Park (TA24 6AS). By the time you’re in the green, you’ll have shopped, eaten and explored this gorgeous village and we’re sure will have planned your next visit!
Dulverton is known as Exmoor’s capital and is a thriving market town with a friendly, welcoming community.
Moreover, electric car charging points in Exmoor are on the rise here as well! As such, recharge your car at the rapid charging point in the main car park. In doing so, you have just enough time to enjoy some of Exmoor’s best coffee at the Tantivy Coffee Shop or lunch at Woods Bar and Restaurant.
Walk along the river and discover much more about this fascinating town at the Visitor Centre, Heritage Museum or at the Exmoor Society.
Find buried treasure in Wiveliscombe
Wiveliscombe is a fascinating town in the southeast of Exmoor National Park. It is an equal distance between Taunton and Watchet.
Bristling with independent businesses, it is home to the world-famous ‘Wivey Pool’ (a heated outdoor lido swimming pool). In addition, this friendly town is full of antique, curio and homeware shops, one of which is located in the old brewery on the edge of the town.
Why not enjoy lunch and spend a few hours in this frequently bypassed town – you’ll be glad you did! Park for free at Croft Way car park and you’ll find the charging points on the upper level.
Unfortunately, due to the terms of our insurance policy we are unable to provide EV charging at our cottages.
