Bolding Way Holidays - Weybourne,Norfolk

You can never have enough reviews on venues especially naturist venues so heres mine on Bolding Way,the link for the venue  you’ll find here:- http://www.naturistnorfolk.co.uk/
Located on the North Norfolk coast road, about 3 miles west of Sheringham, Weybourne is a quaint, tucked away village, with only a pub, a shop and a tearoom for company. We arrived at around 8.30 on the Friday night and was swiftly shown through to the camping field at the rear of the property, by the very friendly host Charlie.Bolding Way has Self Catering, Room Only and Campsite facilities for tents/trailer tents (Bell tents & Yurt were also available, but were in their own fenced off sections), and seeing as we only had a small tent it was perfect. Once the tent was up we freshened up using the camping shower facilities which were housed in a converted mobile home….however there were 2 toilets and 2 showers which were both modern and very clean. There is also washing up facilities housed in the same area. We then headed off to the local pub, The Ship Inn for some eagerly awaited refreshments.
We were both impressed by the quality of the facilities and also the quietness of the surrounding countryside. We shall definitely be returning soon, hopefully we’ll be more fortunate with the weather next time.

Diogenes Sun Club 

We arrived around 3pm and were let in by one of the members and shown one of many places where we could pitch our tent. Being seasoned naturist campers the first obstacle/the only obstacle you normally have to overcome, is getting the tent pegs in the ground. After a lot of banging and puffing we got them in and got the tent up. When we visit a new naturist venue in weather that is not exactly scorching, it is always a relief when you spot your first fellow naturist, a sign you’ve arrived at the right place and off can come your own clothes. The local pub “The Dumb Bell” is next door, where we enjoyed a couple of pints and some food. On our return we found other people had arrived. It being a Friday a few hours later a number of the other members turned up and we were able to enjoy their company for a time. Outside then inside in the conservatory which is attached to the main building. Established in 1936, Diogenes is set in rolling countryside not far from Chalfort St Peter or the M25/M40.The main building is a quirky old house that is full of character, inside however it is full of modern appliances. Diogenes was originally based in Bricket Wood in Hertfordshire. The village of Bricket Wood had been host to at least six naturist clubs at one time or another: Fiveacres Country Club, Spielplatz, The Sun-Folk Society, Gardenia (originally named Silverbirch), Diogenes Sunlight Society (also known as The Phoenix Recreational Society), and The Suncampers. Of these, Gardenia has now closed and been built on, Diogenes became the Diogenes Sun Club when it moved to near Chalfont. Overall Diogenes open stance on advertising and publicity seems to be working well. If more clubs adopted this stance maybe naturism would be seen as a wholesome pastime and something to be enjoyed by all and not a hide behind fences and don’t tell anyone anything. Diogenes is a club we’d like to join if we lived nearer and would recommend it to anyone. http://www.diogenessunclub.co.uk/

 Merryhill Leisure

Merryhill is almost heaven on earth for a nature lover and a naturist, being far enough away from any outside noise, but near enough to the civilisation which people take for granted these days. We really didn’t want to leave and thought how nice it could be to live there one day. We took a tour of the grounds, which had around 50 mobile homes, 10 bungalows, as well as an overflow camping field, Woodland walk, Clubhouse with bar, an outdoor swimming pool, Children's play area, Large grass area for ball games, All weather Miniten Courts (1 Floodlit) and Petanque courts.


 The Naturist Foundation

As far as clubs goes the Naturist Foundation is hard to beat first the size and also the facilities.Set in 50 acres of woodland the Naturist Foundation offers a secluded and peaceful setting just a stones throw from London.Located close to the pavilion, bar & sun bathing lawns, the swimming pool has everything.The pool is heated and covered, and has a changing room, shower & toilet facilities.There is also a sauna located next to the swimming pool.The bar is in the main building and serves all normal beers,wines,spirits and also real ale.There is also a cafe serving food at various times during the day.While we were there we swam relaxed ate and drank and used many of the things the foundation offered and it was a pity when our weekend stay came to an end.

Spielplatz (St.Albans)

Despite what people might think about naturism it is a non sexual,stress free,liberating pastime.Spielplatz is a fine place to practice this pastime as it is secluded while being close to St.Albans and London.There are chalets to let as well as lawns to pitch tents. It has a great pool as well as all the facilities you'd see at all naturist venues.Food is available and there is a bar on site so you can relax in the sun au natural.We enjoyed our stay here and didn't want to leave.

 St.Annes Cottage (Three Legged Cross, Dorset)

Well secluded naturist campsite run by Reg and Hazel. Space for caravans and tents with electric hook-ups. Basic in nature but shower block is well appointed and showers run well and hot. No other facilities but this adds to the charm. About 30 minutes from Studland beach and about a 10 minute car trip to the nearest shops/pubs. Separate camping field at the rear of the site which was a bit soggy during our stay during one of the wettest August on record. Would recommend this site to those who want a peaceful. Hopefully we will return again in the near future.
