FAQ

What sort of a place is Brocken Hurst?
Brocken Hurst offers a tranquil escape in 50 acres of woodland providing peace and tranquillity for those wanting to escape from life’s pressures. It also offers a safe environment for families with young children. The bar and pavilion are centres where members meet to socialise and see friends.

For those new to naturism, you’ll soon find that everyone respects you for who you are and will treat you with dignity whatever shape or size. Naturists are keen to know the person and often don’t notice if you’re wearing clothes or not! In return we ask you to respect us and our common passion.

What rules are there about clothing?
You are free to wander wherever you wish without clothing. Please make sure you have a towel to sit on around the pavilion, bar, sauna and on the benches. Some evening events may request that you’re dressed during meal service or when dancing. As a family environment we do not welcome fetish clothing at evening events.

As you leave, you’ll see the sign asking you to be clothed by the main gate.

Of course, when it’s cold we put on clothes to keep us warm. Nothing odd about that!

My partner isn’t a naturist; can they still come with me?
The Naturist Foundation promotes naturism as a natural and healthy pursuit. Whilst our aim is to make all visitors comfortable as naturists within the confines of Brocken Hurst, we do understand some may take a little longer to feel at ease without clothes. Hopefully, everyone new to naturism will soon be able to say “what took me so long?”

We have members of all ages, genders and abilities and you’ll find someone always willing to chat over any particular concerns.
