Newperran Holiday Park near Perranporth, on the north Cornish coast, has been hosting British Naturism's annual summer gathering - Nudefest - each June since 2007. Although the event only lasts three days, the park is given over completely to the hundreds of naturists that attend. There is also a week either side when part of the site (a couple of fields) is available for nude camping, so folk travelling long distances can make a holiday of it.

The five-star site has excellent facilities and the owners, Christine and Keith, are particularly enthusiastic about the naturists - here's what they said in their 2010 newsletter, which is on the website:

"The British Naturism society are coming back for their 4th year to hold their event in the June period, we are all looking forward to seeing them again. They are lovely people with such a great outlook on life, if anyone, not a naturist would want more information, just give me a ring...."

UPDATE for 2011 - extended from long weekend to full week

Nudefest 2011 will be from Sunday 12 June to Sunday 19 June but, as indicated, naturist camping will be available for a week either side of those dates ie from 3-12 June and 19-26 June. The main event and/or the extended au natural camping periods are open to non-members, as well as members of British Naturism.

We were fortunate to have fine sunny weather this year, so skinny-dipping and sunbathing by the new pool felt more like being on the Med.

The nudist beach at Penhale Sands (co-ordinates: 50.374755,-5.146424) is nearby, and can be reached by walking a couple of miles along the shore from Perranporth, or from behind using a path down through the sand dunes (note there was an unfortunate spat with the MOD in 2006, when the beach was closed to naturists for a while, but it's subsequently been sorted and is open once more).

In case it is of interest - details of Nudefest 2010:

Up the coast, just north of Newquay, Southleigh Manor Holiday Naturist Club is also open to non-members. It has 50 pitches with plenty of electric hook-ups, a swimming pool, sauna, jacuzzi, bar and a bistro. Note, there's a 50% surcharge for a one-night stay.
