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!!
Well 2021 was marginally better than 2020. Covid tried to mess things up again, but thankfully this year was slightly better. The weather was as to be expected, unpredictable and underwhelming.
That didn’t stop us from getting our kit off whenever the sun shone, and this year we got to visit more places than we have done before.
First opportunity to get naked outdoors was in May to see the bluebells in the woods. Luckily my mother in law owns a large amount of land and has a wood that is private so is fairly safe to strip off without offending anyone.
Other than trips up the club, or back garden naturism, the next time we properly got to strip off was at Nudefest in early July. The weather wasn’t particularly nice other than one day, apart from that it was particularly wet (especially when it came to dismantling the tent). You’d think July would be the best time to hold such an event.
We moved on from Somerset where Nudefest was held to a much sunnier South Wales, in fact it turned out to be the hottest week of the year. We had fantastic weather. It was the first time that we got to visit Tything Barn a rustic naturist campsite not far from Tenby in a place called Kilgetty. Its located by the banks of a tidal river, however you never got to see much of the river as its mainly mud banks and has a lagoon that is fed from the river. I must say it felt very strange swimming in the lagoon, with the soft mud between your toes when you touched the bottom. I tried not to walk in the water as you didn’t know what you were going to tred on. They had some Kayaks for visitors to use, so I made use of this and went for a paddle round the lagoon. The only downside was the blasted horseflies that kept landing on you. They are complete buggers as you often don’t know what is sucking your blood until its too late and then you have a nasty bite on your bits!
It wasn’t long before we got to go away again at the end of July to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We decided to visit Acorns Naturist retreat in North Devon. The weather, like last year, was not particularly great, and in fact couldn’t have been worse. We chose to camp when Storm Evert hit the UK. It was a good thing we took the inflatable tent with us, as I’m sure any other tent with poles would not have survived the night. The windbreaks certainly didn’t.
Despite the lousy weather this was our 2nd trip to this site and one that we will visit time and time again, we are just hoping that the weather improves in the future, 3rd time lucky in 2022?
The next trip away was not to be until September on our way to Ilkley in Yorkshire. Clover Spa in Birmingham was about half way there, so Claire thought it would be a good opportunity to extend our break and visit this spa that I have always wanted to try out. As it was September, we weren’t expecting the weather to be overly warm, but it would have been nice if the sun came out. Unfortunately for us most of the day it remained overcast, but it didn’t rain, which was a plus.
So that just about sums up our naturist year. Next year is looking quite busy with lots of concerts to attend, which will mean less opportunity to get naked around the country, but who knows……
We wish you a very Happy Nude Year for 2022, and hope that we can all enjoy the sun as nature intended……NAKED!
Well you can’t say that 2020 hasn’t been memorable. With Covid19 and the country in lockdown from March, you couldn’t fault the weather. We had the best weather ever in early lockdown and roll forward 6 months to September 2020, looks like we’re gonna end on a high too.
So what’s the best way to enjoy this weather? ……. Naked of course. And this is what I did this weekend up at the club (Haslemere Sun Club)
It was a spur of the moment thing , we were celebrating 4 years of being married and with lockdown we hadn’t really planned anything to go away. We were due to see Michael Buble in Bath but that got postponed until 2021.
So after the wonderful weather forecast I thought let’s book a naturist camping trip. So here we are at Acorns Naturist Retreat, except the weather is not as warm as Friday and there is more cloud than sun.
We left straight after work at 4:00pm and set off for Devon, only took us just over 3 hours to get here and traffic wasn’t that bad.
From what I have seen of the place it’s really nice cosy and friendly, and it’s away from everyone else down a little country lane. Leave your troubles and your clothes at the entrance.
Due to covid19 the sauna was closed however the hot tub was still open, unfortunately the button to start the bubbles was not working so we just sat in it to get warm, it was heated to 38 degrees. We didn’t try the pool out as the sun just wasn’t out long enough to warrant getting in.
There are two fields available to walk around which have had pathways cut into, quite nice seeing the wild flowers and mighty oak trees that give this place its name.
The old dairy shed is the place to go and have a meal, so long as you order in advance. I loved the rustic feel of it and that the light fittings were made from milking suction udder things!!
Would definitely come back here again, hopefully when the weather plays ball and it is warmer than the 19 degrees that we got.
It’s been a long time coming, but we have finally succumbed and booked a full on naturist holiday. Not just a naturist beach, but a place where you can walk around as nature intended anywhere, and no one bats an eyelid at you.
This holiday location is Vera Playa, on the southern end of Spain, where we have hired a two bed apartment through Airbnb. The apartment has access to a shared swimming pool which is nice and refreshing and is just a short walk from the beach, and the very relaxing Pirates Bar directly on the beach.
The feeling of total freedom is wonderful. You can wake up in the morning, walk downstairs to the pool for an early morning dip, and then relax drying off in the sun on the sun terrace.
And then walk down to the beach about 150 metres away without a stitch or care in the world , and then do a spot of people watching from the comfort of the Pirates Bar outside decking.
The sea temperature is also very inviting , although when we first arrived the sea itself wasn’t inviting as it was quite rough due to the storms they had experienced 24 hours before we arrived.
