Waterworld has banned family nudist events at its site after a backlash from customers.
The Stoke-on-Trent leisure resort has been hired by groups such as British Naturism for more than two decades.
But Waterworld said it had become clear in recent months that a growing number of customers are unhappy with these private events being open to both adults and children.
So Waterworld has decided to change its policy for any future naturist bookings, restricting use of the site to people over the age of 18 only.
Owner Mo Chaudry said: “British Naturism is a perfectly law-abiding organisation which has been hiring our venue – and many similar sites across the UK – for private events for over 20 years.
“In all that time, the sessions have taken place happily and peacefully with all appropriate health, safety and safeguarding policies in place, giving our team no reasons for concern.
“However, it has become clear following extensive dialogue with our customers that a growing number are unhappy with these sessions being open to children and young people.
“So, while we are happy to continue hiring out our venue to naturists, the board of directors have decided to amend our company policy – future events must now be restricted to over 18s.”
