Self-catering Cottages in Cornwall with Electric Vehicle Charging Points

Eco-friendy Cornish Cottages

As the electric vehicle revolution gains momentum, there is a growing demand for sustainable staycations where guests can charge their vehicles from the comfort of their holiday homes.

As part of our commitment to protect the planet and support sustainable tourism, we believe in promoting responsible travel and enabling the eco-friendly traveller.

Trying to do our bit for the environment shouldn’t be a hassle. Whether guests have hired an electric car or are bringing their own, we have a handpicked selection of properties that support electric and plug-in hybrid cars and advocate a low-emission lifestyle.

Recharge overnight or top up in the morning, this collection celebrates renewable energy solutions while ensuring that guests don’t need to queue at local charging points or worry about losing power in Cornwall’s more remote (and beautiful) locations.

1. Weir Point Stables

Weir Point Stables is a striking balance between contemporary beauty and luxurious comfort. This property is a haven for sailors, walkers, and families looking for peace and quiet beside the water. Sleeping up to six, contentment indoors comes from a woodburner, and living areas on both floors. A ground floor bedroom is perfect for travellers wishing to avoid the stairs after a tiring day spent out and about exploring Cornwall.

2. Dinyan

Rising above the water at the edge of Port Navas Creek, the cedar-clad Dinyan overlooks the turning of the tide and the shifting patterns of sunlight upon the trees of the Helford River. An architectural marvel unique in this part of Cornwall, Dinyan was designed to sit perfectly within its surroundings. Three balconies allow vantage points to watch as wildlife, boats, and the movements of the day slowly pass you by. This striking property offers a unique interior, and views of the creek extend from each of the principal rooms.

3. Skysail

Perched up high, in the hub of Falmouth’s Victorian cottage terraces, sits Skysail, a contemporary, new build residence with oodles of charm. Spread over three floors with a bathroom conveniently located on each floor, Skysail offers ample room for your family to come together or for individuals to find space alone, depending on how the mood flows. Revel in the influx of natural light and charming views over Falmouth’s rooftops to the harbour, lay down on the large sofa in winter, with a gripping read in hand and toes toasty by the wood-burner, and saunter down to Falmouth town for breakfast treats from Stones Bakery in the morning.
