It’s been a tough few days for all of us I’m sure.
We all face uncertainty.
I’ve been hitting the cancellation button constantly, which is a strange feeling as I only hit it for the first time in 10 years on Monday. I have enjoyed hosting families here in Caister for all that time and boosting local businesses by bringing quality tourism to the village.
Thank you to my previous guests, most of you I really enjoyed chatting with 😂 So I hope to be here in future years to welcome returning and new guests but bills have to be paid somehow. When I figure it out I’ll let you all know how...
With the future being so hard to predict and in order to protect my local community I have decided to close the cottage until the 30th April. This date will be moved in line with government advice but I don’t want to be responsible for bringing covid-19 to my neighbours, friends and residents of our fine village.
Despite the financial issues this will create I have decided to refund all guests booked to 30th April in full and will continue to do so as needed. Although my terms clearly state there are no refunds we are all in trouble at this time and my overdraft should cover all outstanding bookings 🤨 It’s not our fault that we are in this situation and we need to look after each other.
Holiday cottages with electric car charging are surprisingly still quite rare and if you are one of the early adopters of this promising technology like outrselves it can be quite a challenge to find a holiday cottage with an EV charger. Leading the way in guest comfort and convienience, Caister Beach Cottages have installed Three 7KW Type 2 Mennekes EV chargers (1 for each cottage) which are powered by 100% renewable electricity. We exclusively use British manufactured Viridian EV Eco Lite charges and Octopus as our supplier. As we are a beachfront Holiday Cottages To Rent In Norfolk climate change is a concern for their future with sea level rise and we try and do our small bit to combat this. The EV charge point is FREE for guest use between 00:30 and 04:30 daily with a 20p per kwh at other times. We are also located at the end of a no through road with private parking (no tripping over the cable) and having 3 chargers mean even if there is a fault in one (not happened yet) others are available.
While looking for Dog Friendly Cottages To Rent In Norfolk combined with Holiday cottages with electric car charging I found almost no Holiday cottages in Norfolk with EV charging and was disappointed with the result. There are many businesses that have Electric vehicle charging to use on a day trip in the county including our local Tesco and now my cottage facilities can top you up while you sleep so you can have a full charge for the following days activities. Electric car owners can remove range anxiety by having a charge point at the cottage and not worry. What a relief! We are located on both the Zap-Map and Plugshare apps for your information.
Caister Beach Cottages are now in our 11th year with many 5* reviews and returning guests. Check out our reviews on Tripadvisor or Facebook to see what our many satisfied guests have written. Plans are underway for yet another Type 2 charger to be installed in our additional Norfolk holiday cottage allowing larger groups with additional EV’s to holiday together and as there are few Beachfront Holiday cottages with electric car charging. As a Hyundai Kona EV owner myself I believe more holiday home owners will eventually facilitate electric vehicles in the future. Until then Caister Beach Cottages will lead the way, embracing green technologies as they become available.
We have always been happy with Octopus Energy and can highly recommend them as Hyundai Kona EV owners on their EV tariff. If you would like to join us use the link below and we’ll both get £100 bill credit and contribute even less CO2 to the planet!
