Greenacres Sun Club

Greenacres Sun Club is a friendly members club in the heart of the beautiful Durham countryside. The club was founded in 1953 and is open to new members. Couples and families who are naturist club members, members of BN or other INF – affiliated clubs are most welcome as visitors by prior arrangement.

The club was founded when an old Alms Houses site was bought in 1953 ­ ensuring the site has been in more or less constant use since the early 19th century, albeit not always by naturists! The founders worked hard to clear the dense undergrowth and develop the site, their determination to make Greenacres a leading naturist site has built up the club’s facilities to where we are today.

There is a large club house with a licensed bar that is available at weekends and bank holidays. A central hall with a modern kitchen which is used to prepare meals for social evenings etc. a small T. V. room, male, female and disabled toilets and a mixed, family, shower room. On the main patio outside is a DIY barbecue area facing a playground for small children and a twin pétanque area.

A large flat, screened camping area with electric hook up points and a day visitors centre is available adjacent to the swimming pool which is available to use as a changing room and has tea making facilities, microwave, washing up etc. for the use of day visitors and campers.

There is an outdoor swimming pool and sauna with a small library in the relaxation area, two volleyball courts, a miniten and badminton court. Sheltered lawns for sunbathing are available throughout the grounds.

There is a very modern shower and toilet block close to the camping area with separate male and female toilet facilities and hot showers. All showers are free throughout Greenacres.

There is ample space for camping, including touring caravans and trailer tents with electric hook up available at minimal cost.
