Clothing optional holiday

Our holiday hideaway is ideal for a time away without clothes. The cottage stands entirely on its own and the garden is completely enclosed giving exceptional privacy. Whether you're seasoned naturists or want to try naturism on holiday this is an environment in which you can relax.

Our cottage - Pike House - is often booked up! If you can't find a suitable date here, we do have a self-catering Studio Cabin in another, nearby location. Information about it is near the bottom of this page. Or simply follow this link directly to the website: Oak Lodge - The Forest Spa.

Naturist self-catering accommodation

We think you'll find our holiday hideaway an ideal holiday cottage for your naturist self-catering accommodation stay in the Royal Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, UK.

In Summer, and even in a good Spring, the garden and patio provide a great opportunity to get an all over tan. The secluded garden is ideal for sunbathing naked in private. You can go clothing optional without concern. Our enclosed private garden gives freedom to be in the buff.

The hot tub in the garden and the log burning stove in the cottage makes our holiday hideaway a good place for naturists - or those who like moments of nakedness - even when Summer has past and we are into Autumn and Winter. The garden remains completely secluded even after the leaves have fallen.

Inside the cottage windows aren't easily seen through and are far from prying eyes. Also the side patio is perfect for al fresco naked dining on warm days. The log burning fire is always available and it soon gets the living room warm enough to sit about naked. Logs are provided and often you will find fire lighters and kindling ready for you too. Besides this, the oil-fired central heating in the cottage is excellent.

Please go to our "Hot Tub" page for more details of our hot tub and sauna facility. It's a treat!

Two bedroom cottage

Our cottage is a two bedroom cottage. One bedroom is set up as very nice double bedroom and the other a nice twin bedroom. Both of them have large windows overlooking the superb enclosed garden. It makes ideal self-catering accommodation for two naturist couples or a naturist family wanting to get away together for a relaxing UK holiday.

One couple discount

If you're just one couple wanting to get away for a break we can offer you a discount on the basis that you are only going to require one of our two bedrooms. Please see the "Our Prices" page for details of this where you will also find a simple price calculator.

Naturist discount

This naturist discount is 2% and applies just for those who are comfortable in a naturist setting. To qualify for this discount we define "naturist" as comfortable going naked in a mixed gender naturist setting whenever the weather and place is right and comfortable about others going naked in that setting too. For this discount to apply to you the above definition must be right for everyone planning on staying on your booking.

Please request the naturist discount by putting in the message box of the Booking Form, "We would like the Naturist Discount you offer."

The price of your stay with this discount will be calculated as the price given on our price calculator - see "Our Prices" page - and then this discount taken off. Please allow us to emphasise, the naturist discount is not given automatically you have to request it in the way described above.

Naturist owners

We - our names are Simon and Ruth - bought our cottage because we enjoy clothing optional living and wanted a place to relax without clothes and where others could too. We bought it as our "Garden of Eden" and are delighted to be able to welcome you for a stay.

By the way, if you are a Christian naturist you may well, like us, be encouraged and well informed by the article at the following page:

Recent Guest Comments

“What a week of wonderful weather and visiting an area we had hardly ever seen before. Good nights' sleep on a lovely comfy bed, lovely clean and well equipped cottage, pretty garden, super hot tub and garden facilities and a helpful host. We have enjoyed our stay with you. Thank you so much.” Norman and Trish - Jul. 24th 2021

“Simon and Ruth’s place was an amazing choice for my friend and I for a weekend away to relax and unwind. Set on its own in a beautiful part of the forest, we had superb privacy all weekend, and were able to fully utilise the spa facilities, which are absolutely amazing! We spent our Saturday night sipping tea in the hot tub under the stars, in the forest, and had a quick spell in the sauna... we couldn’t have asked for more! The house is kitted out with everything you may need for either a long or short stay, and as well as the pubs being a stumble away, a large shop is only a few minutes away by car and had nearly anything you would want/need. Simon greeted us on arrival, and gave us a tour of the place and some really useful tips around the house and for the spa. He was great with communication, and is a super host! Thanks again for letting us stay!” Nicola (Nicola posted this on Airbnb) - Mar. 15th 2020


"Wow! Where to start, this place is fantastic, cozy and allow you to enjoy freedom in a very safe place. Simon took a lot of time to explain where everything is and works. The cottage is so cozy and has everything you need, the fire is a nice addition. The outside areas is incredibly well maintained. The Jacuzzi, the sauna, the relaxation room are perfect too. Enjoyed at anytime of the day or night. Simon even put a little touch for us knowing it was our minimoon, such a nice way to start the weekend. We will be back, it would be a shame not to!"
