The Naturist Foundation is the successor to the North Kent Sun Club, founded near Dartford in 1948. Set in 50 acres of ancient woodland we offer the largest and best equipped facilities for naturism in Britain. We strive to keep our facilities modern and up to date and many of these facilities and services from which we benefit today have been created by the voluntary efforts of our contributors, which is still vitally important to our progress.
The centre piece at Brocken Hurst is our indoor, heated swimming pool. The depth ranges from 1 to 2 metres and is 18 metres long by 9 metres wide, which is filled with 230m3 of constantly filtered and purified fresh water from our own aquifer. Located close to the pavilion, bar & sun-bathing lawns, it has everything close at hand for enjoying a day by the pool.
The central shower block is where you will find shower and toilet facilities, a first aid station, disabled toilets with ramp access and our sauna. The sauna comfortably seats 10 people and is available Tuesday evenings and at weekends.
Our pavilion with its sheltered sun terrace, cafeteria, tables and chairs, is the centre of most of our social events. We have an active social programme for all age groups, ranging from quizzes, music recitals, amateur dramatics to discos and fancy-dress competitions.
The on-site bar, or Jubilee Bar as it is affectionately known, offers a pleasant and well-ventilated environment to relax and enjoy a superb selection of drinks. Up to three hand pumps deliver a range of real ales including exciting guest beers. An excellent choice of lagers, spirits, ciders, liqueurs and wines are also on offer.
Our 4* rated Café offers a wide variety of hot and cold drinks, meals and snacks. Opening times vary during the season so please check the website or notice boards for details. Card and cash payments are accepted at both our Café and bar.
We have extensive sports facilities which include 3 competition standard miniten courts, 3 volleyball courts, 7 Petanque courts, a badminton court, indoor and outdoor table tennis tables as well as a jogging track and outdoor gym.
Here at Brocken Hurst we take great pride in providing a safe play environment for children so that parents can relax totally. That is why we had a new playground installed in 2019! The two new modular units mean plenty for children of all ages to do. It also features a baby swing and older children’s swing. Our clean and compact playground will keep the kids busy for hours and our rubber flooring will also provide parents with peace of mind should there be any falls. The added bonus of new lawn right next to the playground means parents can keep a watchful eye.
Our rental Chalet is an attractive spacious timber building set in a glade close to the central area of the site. The accommodation, which sleeps up to 6 people, comprises of a large open plan lounge, two bedrooms, dining area and kitchen. The two bedrooms each have a double bed and are furnished with wardrobes and drawers. In the lounge/diner the L shaped sofa turns into a bed, and there is a dining table and chairs. A TV and DVD player are also available. The Chalet has a full complement of cutlery and crockery and we provide bed linen and shower towels. Please bring your own swimming/sunbathing towels.
For those wishing to camp, you can book a pitch on our camping meadow with or without an electrical outlet. You can bring a tent, caravan, motorhome or trailer tent. For those camping we have a shower/toilet block, washing up and laundry facilities. Our camp site warden is on site most days to offer help and assistance if required.
