Your first visit to the club will be to look around and be shown the facilities and for you to decide if you might like to join.
You are under no obligation to sign up or pay any money!
You could have a second look before making a decision. During these visits you would not be expected to undress but please do so if you feel comfortable. Otherwise you will be left to take part at your own speed.
As a member you will be expected to be naked whenever the weather is suitable.
We are unable to allow people to turn up on the spot.
Nottingham Sun Club grounds are deep inside Newstead Abbey grounds, protected by gates which have code numbers.
You can apply to visit or to join Nottingham Sun Club, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
The club is naturist so we do expect people to remove their clothes, not necessarily immediately on arrival but as soon as practically possible.
This could be in your car, or in our small pavilion whichever is the best for you, as we do expect people to enter into the naturist ethos when it is warm.
No swimwear or footwear are to be worn in the pool, showers or sauna.
You will be expected to have your own towel to sit on when using club and other members seating (indoor and outdoor) this is the same as other naturist environments for hygiene reasons.
This is basic etiquette.
The Ladies and Gents toilets are separate but the showers are communal with a communal changing area.
Don't feel shy.......you've seen it all before already!!
By permission of the Committee, personalised photography only, i.e. Partner/Own Family. This must not include any other club member without their express permission.
Photography of third parties, such as models, within the club grounds is strictly prohibited
Some might well be but Nottingham Sun Club most definitely is not!
We are a family/couples orientated club that keeps a balance of single members too.
This results in there being a mix of both sexes and all ages but the emphasis is on creating a comfortable family environment
NSC is a family club and explicit body piercing is not welcome.
The same applies to sexually explicit or offensive tattoos, including genital tattoos and genital jewellery.
Pool safety regulations (posted at pool) are to be strictly adhered to. The pool is unsupervised, and you are allowed to swim alone but it is always advisable that you do have a "minder" and if so they should be 16 or over.
We cannot accept dogs or cats at the club or any pets that cannot be caged at all times.
We do however, allow registered assistance/guide dogs which must remain on a lead at all times.
Your dog must be taken off site for walks.
It is not permitted to allow your dog to defecate on the premises.
Tent emplacement information will be provided for the visitors on arrival and is displayed in the visitors campsite
There are some wheelie bins however, we ask that you take your rubbish home as we have no recycling facilities.
Other larger waste must be removed from site and taken to a waste disposal centre
Yes Motorhomes and Campervans are very welcome.
However, we are limited to receiving Motorhomes no longer than 7.5 metres due to available space in the Motorhome field.
Before visiting us you must contact us first!
Unfortunately we are unable to accept caravans.
We do welcome and can accommodate tents, camper vans, and motorhomes but we may have difficulty with the larger vans so please contact us for details before you book.
For the first year you become a probationary member, then if all goes well you are invited to become a full member of the club, with full voting rights.
The membership year is a full calendar year, January to December. Successful applicants applying for membership will be charged a pro-rata membership fee dependant at the time of being accepted.
We maintain a controlled balance of men, women and family units of all ages.
It could be that you are a good fit with us however we may not be able to accommodate you immediately if our numbers are full in certain categories.
This balance of genders is key to maintaining a healthy positive feeling on the site.
For your first year as a probationary member you will be asked to carry out duties and join in on the work weekends.
All members are required to carry out some duties during the year to help maintain the high standards of the club facilities.
Children are always welcome. We simply require you to bring a formal letter signed by both 'blood' parents allowing the children to come to the club.
All the children have to be named and duly signed by all concerned; this is for our, your, and your children's protection.
The requirement applies also to other close relatives that consider bringing children to the club, i.e. Aunts, Uncles, Grand Parents etc.
Children of any age are not forced to do anything they don't wish to do.
As long as the parents are actively encouraging them to take part, then that is all we can ask.
Left alone they invariably join in anyway as most children feel very comfortable without clothes as they enjoy the total freedom and no wet clingy swimsuit as they emerge from the pool!
During puberty they are more body conscious and stay covered up for longer but always manage to undress to use the pool!!
