Naturist Holidays

Devonshire

Saunton Sands - 1985

We visited Saunton Sands while holidaying nearby with our children.  We had heard of a naturist beach in the area and asked at the Tourist Information Office in Braunton. We were directed to the toll road where we paid the modest toll and then drove to the car park. We then had a walk of about a mile and a quarter across the dunes to the southern end of the beach where we found a quiet spot - not difficult as there were very few people about - and settled down.

Our children enjoyed playing on the beach and in the dunes and we all enjoyed watching the land yachts racing up and down the beach.

Access to the toll road is at N51.0951° W4.1687°.

Acorns - 2014

Acorns is set in thirteen acres of Devon farmland. There are four mobile homes for hire and pitches for caravans, campervans and tents. It also welcomes day visitors.

Facilities include a large hot tub, a sauna and a swimming pool in addition to the usual showers and lavatories. There is also a large communal building know as The Cow Shed which which has panoramic views towards Dartmoor. It houses a lounge area with free wireless internet access, books, games and jigsaws, table tennis table.

Visitors are free to wander round the farm through three fields which have been left to grow naturally and provide an abundance of wild flowers and grasses to attract a variety of wildlife from field voles and rabbits to foxes and deer.

Crazy Well Pool - 2019

Crazy Well Pool is a pool on Dartmoor about a couple of miles south of Princetown. It is about a hundred yards by fifty yards, so is big enough for a good swim, and tradition says that it is bottomless. However modern investigations have shown that it is about sixteen feet deep.

There is a small parking area off the minor road at N50.5061° W4.0199°, from where the pool is a walk of just under a mile and a half. From the sharp bend near the parking area, take the track going eastwards along the side of the woods. Follow this track until seeing a path beside a stream bed to the left of the track. Follow the path uphill for a couple of hundred yards to the pool. There is a slightly shorter path, starting just after the last of the woods on the left, but it is not well defined.

Unfortunately on the day we visited the weather wasn't conducive to nude swimming, but on a sunny day this would be an ideal spot to relax, if no one else is around.

About 180 yards east of the pool is Crazywell Cross, thought to be one of the marker crosses for the Monks' Path from Buckfast Abbey to Tavistock Abbey.
