Welcome to Ryedale Naturist Club’s website.


We are a small friendly swim based club who welcome all genuine naturists. Don’t just take our word for it read some of our visitors comments on the comments page.

Website updated on 21st May 2018 new tab above (safeguarding policy) with our Child and Vulnerable Adult Safeguarding Policy


We take safeguarding very seriously and our Safeguarding Officer attends every swimming session.

New visitors and new members will be escorted by a club member on their first session, when on the premises.





If you have never tried naturist swimming before then give it a try, you have nothing to lose except your wet cozzie. This is also a great way to meet people and make new friends.  Our swims are just like going to any council run swimming pool except we don’t use swim-wear.  This is a safe and friendly environment. There are no official naturist beaches in Yorkshire (Fraisthorpe Beach near Bridlington is no longer a naturist beach) so your best chance of a relaxed naked swim is with us.

We are not a site based club with our own land or buildings but we meet fortnightly on a Sunday afternoon for a swim at The Derwent

Swimming Pool, Church Street, Norton, Malton, North  Yorkshire YO17 9HP from  3.00 to 5.00 pm. We have the use of a sauna and an

excellent pool which is 25m x 8.5 m.. There is free parking in the council run car park behind the pub which is opposite the pool.


If you are thinking about trying naturism out for the first time but you are nervous about going nude in public then so were the rest of us as there was a first time for all of us, but after a few minutes you will wonder why you were so nervous  in the first place.

Very nervous newcomers may wear a costume on their first visit, so there is no excuse for you not to come along with your partner or friends and try it out.

We are always pleased to welcome enquires from newcomers, both couples and singles (but not from anyone who can’t make it anyway due to work commitments etc) you don’t need to be a member of BN or any other club or organisation. Visitors will need to give one weeks notice of their intention to attend a swim and will need to bring suitable I.D on every visit. (Proof of identity and proof of address), such as Photo Driving licence or Passport and current utility bill. Entrance for visitors is swim £5 sauna £4 and lockers take a refundable £1 coin If you wish to become a member (single membership £15 couples £20 per year.) You must have attended one of our swims as a visitor at least once in the previous 3 months Members benefit from reduced entry fee and are allowed to attend and vote at our agm.. Membership forms can be downloaded by clicking here.


Naturism attracts people from all walks of life.  Anybody can be a naturist and once you have tried swimming without your costume you will never want to wear one again.  The only regret that you will have is why you left it for so long before trying it out. We have visitors and members from Bridlington, Driffield, Filey, Malton, Norton, Pickering, Scarborough, Whitby, York, County Durham and many other towns nearby.


Free parking is available in the public car park across the road from the pool, behind the Derwent Arms Public House.
