Western Sunfolk - 2002>>>

This is our home site.  We first visited Western Sunfolk with a Suntreckers rally in 2002 and liked it so much that we visited several times in the following few years, before finally joining at the start of 2009. We now have a permanent pitch and keep our caravan there all year round except when we tow it out to go touring.

Western Sunfolk is not far from the Wye Valley. There are around sixty static caravans owned by some of the members and about a dozen camping/caravanning pitches with six amp electric hook-ups. There is a large pavilion with kitchen, a smaller teenagers' pavilion, two service blocks with free showers and washing up facilities, a heated, covered swimming pool, two miniten courts, two boule courts and a children's play area.

Non-members are welcome to visit for a day or longer, but entry to the grounds is subject to pre-booking, which can be done through the club website.

The short drive to the club gate starts at N51.7482° W2.7396°. Look for the WSF sign on the gatepost.

You will know that you've arrived when you see the nice new automatic gate. The gate is operated by a key pad on the right  just as you turn right at the end of the track. Once inside, the welcome logo in its little bed of flowers faces you as you drive to reception.

In 2015, Western Sunfolk celebrated their 80th birthday. During the afternoon of July 11th around 170 members, former members and guests enjoyed a variety of sideshows and games. ​​Later everyone sat down to some entertainment and a delicious meal that had been prepared by a team of members and featured the pork that had been roasting all day, thanks to one intrepid member who was up at 0600 to start the cooking.

In 2023 one of the members made a promotional video about the club. It can be viewed on YouTube from the link above.

River Usk, Llanfihangel Gobion - 2018

We discovered this place in The Wild Guide to Wales - one of the excellent series of Wild Guides that began with Wild Swimming and Wild Swimming Coast. This part of the river is not a designated naturist area but, with discretion, can be used for nude swimming and sunbathing.

Llanfihangel Gobion is a tiny hamlet about four miles southeast of Abergavenny. About a third of a mile south of the hamlet is a bridge over the River Usk and about ninety yards south of that is a wide gateway entrance at N51.7742° W2.9456° with room for a couple of cars - parked sensibly.

To get to the swimming spot walk back to the bridge and just before it is a footpath to the left, through a curious hinged stile. Once out of sight of the house to the left it is possible to do the rest of the walk nude. The best swimming spot is about half a mile from the bridge but there is a steep bank down to the water. The water varies in depth up to over six feet.

We misread the directions in The Wild Guide to Wales and the area described in the book is actually to the right of the road when walking back to the bridge.  It is a little further from the road than the spot that we went to, being around three-quarters of a mile from the bridge. We'll investigate it next time we're that way.

Punchbowl Lake - 2018

This is another place that we discovered in The Wild Guide to Wales. The lake is not a designated naturist area but, with discretion, can be used for nude swimming and sunbathing.

The lake is about two miles southwest of Abergavenny, nestling in a natural bowl in the foothills of Blorenge. The closest place to park is near the cattle grid at N51.7951° W3.0475°. From here a path diverges from the road through a gate and leads down through trees to the lake. The path starts fairly level but then descends steeply to the lake.

On the day that we visited there was no one else there so we had a nude stroll around the lake but, as the water looked rather murky, we didn't fancy a swim. We were able to walk nude back to the car and then, without the bother of dressing again, explored the path up to Blorenge for a short way.
