What a great year 2022 was for being naked. The weather over the summer was fantastic, but it also started a lot earlier. March was the first opportunity to get out and be naked.
We visited Rose Cottage in North Devon for my 50th birthday with our dear friends Hazel & John , who used to be members of Haslemere Sun Club many years ago.
We also got to visit Acorns Naturist Retreat, again in North Devon at the end of July to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Little did we know then that this would be the last time we would visit them as they have now closed and sold up.
The club also got to celebrate its 75th anniversary this year, which was a fantastic event. In fact it was one of the best attended socials ever with a live band on the Sunday night.
We also got to house sit for Claire’s mum before we went on holiday. With the weather still playing ball I got to try out my drone and walk around the place naked all the time, plus it helped not wearing clothes for those sweaty dirty jobs .
We also go to visit Clover Spa in Birmingham for the second time, this time staying at the venue overnight, enroute to North Yorkshire.
Whilst in Yorkshire the weather was good again for us, with one day being exceptionally warm. The advantages of staying somewhere in the middle of nowhere meant you could be naked without offending anyone .
Let’s hope that 2023 gives us more opportunities to be naked, and to share that time with great friends. Happy 2023 to you all!!
What a great way to start our holiday enroute to Yorkshire.
Claire wanted to extend our break away and at the same time breaking up the journey and suggested we visit the Naturist Spa in Birmingham.
It’s been a place I’ve always wanted to visit, and was great that Claire suggested it.
We booked the Ultimate Spa package which gave you full use of the facilities from 10am to 10pm, and 90 minutes of treatments.
The venue has a steam room, sauna, plunge pool, hot beds and an outside hot tub. The hot tub is very big and you can probably fit in 10 people!
The day we went it was ladies and couples weekend only, which was great, no single males allowed. Outside the garden has plenty of sun loungers, it’s a pity it wasn’t overly sunny when we visited. The gardens are not overlooked and are very well kept and picturesque.
For my 90 minute treatment I opted for a full body scrub followed by a Swedish massage. I must say I did feel very relaxed and felt myself wanting to drift off.
It’s a pity the hotel accommodation was full as we could have come and gone from our room all day. We did however find a Travelodge up the road.
We will definitely be coming back here again, maybe the next time we travel en route to destinations in the north.
