Welcome to Ryedale Naturist Club’s website.

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

Website updated on March 7th 2018, No Helmsley Walled Garden in 2018

We  run the swims at Norton only. We cannot

answer questions about any other events so you will need to contact the organisers directly.

Under 18s are allowed at our swims without swim-wear and they get free entry (max 2 per adult)  but they must be

 accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times.

If you have never tried naturist swimming before then give it a try, you have nothing to lose except your wet sticky 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. There is no sexual activity of any type at all as this is not what naturism or the club is about.  If you are looking for anything more than a swim then you will be very disappointed and need to look elsewhere.  This is a safe and friendly environment where you can swim with the whole Family without any concerns or worries. 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. (Sauna is for over 16’s only). 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, families, 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.  If you bring the kids (18 and under) we will even let them in free (two per adult). Visitors will need to bring some form of I.D on every visit. Photo Driving licence or Passport and utility bill and we require an  email or phone call to say you will be attending. This will also allow us to inform you if a swim is cancelled for any reason. If you wish to become a member (single £15 couple £20 per year.) Members benefit from reduced entry fee and are allowed to attend and vote at our agm.. Membership forms can be downloaded by clicking here.

Your age, shape, race, background, or anything else is irrelevant as naturism attracts people from all walks of life as we have a very

relaxed atmosphere.  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.

Entrance for visitors is Swim £5.00, Sauna £4.00 and lockers take a refundable £1 coin.  Visitors will need to bring some ploto I.D with an

address on. I.e driving Licence or Passport and current utility bill

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