Due to insurance purposes, it's very important that guests never charge their car using a standard outdoor plug or an extension cable linking to a domestic plug at the property. This is not permitted because of regulations regarding wiring, earthing rods and voltage restrictions; it poses a serious fire risk to standard 13 amp sockets and there is a real danger that the body of the vehicle could become live. This forms part of our Terms & Conditions and by booking a holiday at Colne Brook Barn, all guests agree to these rules.
