Electric Car Hire
Langdale Leisure in the Lake District offers guests an extremely affordable way to try out the Renault Twizy electric car without any sales pressure. Guests can explore the Lake District in a cleaner, greener, fun way by taking out one of two Renault Twizy’s offered for hire by the estate. The cars are available to hire from hotel reception for £10 per hour.
Local attractions such as the Ullswater Steamer and Ravenglass to Eskdale Railway have free charging points so you can plug into their free charging stations on your way home.
The Twizys are part of the Go Lakes Travel Project. A £6.9 million initiative, funded by the Department of Transport, and being delivered in partnership by Cumbria County Council, the Lake District National Park Authority and Cumbria Tourism. Between 2011 and 2015 it aims to generate a step-change in how visitors travel to and around the Central and Southern Lake District, enabling them to make greater use of sustainable modes of travel.
