Electric Car Charging Stations Installed
"Hand Picked Hotels has always looked to blend the qualities of our historic country houses with modern technology. Electric cars are the future of national and international motoring and clearly will be here to stay. Most car manufacturers are developing this technology and there are many electric cars on the roads of Great Britain today, with many of these cars already being at an affordable level and also supported by government grants. Up to 500,000 electric cars should be available next year on our roads. It is therefore imperative that we as hoteliers are ready to support this type of vehicle."
Stephen Fearnley, General Manager
We have installed two charging stations to support the increasing number of electric car drivers in the UK and this facility is available to both our guests and team members. The stations provide an additional, complimentary service for our guests with electric cars. Guests can sit back and relax; they can eat a delicious meal, hold a meeting, enjoy a spa day, or even enjoy a luxurious overnight stay as their electric vehicle is serenely 'filling up'.
The UK is committed to halve its total carbon footprint by 2025 and 40% of the UK's emissions come from vehicles. The average journey in the UK is less than 10 miles, so electric vehicles as they stand today are a viable option for many UK drivers. By offering this service we wish to support people from all over the country who have made this change to their lifestyle and wish to plug their car in, rather than filling it with fossil-fuel.
Simply plug in to fill up at Rookery Hall
