Spielplatz (playground in German) is the longest operating naturist resort in the United Kingdom and consists of 12 acres, located in the village of Bricket Wood, in the English County of Hertfordshire. As of 2021, the resort consists of 65 houses.
Spielplatz was founded in 1929 by Charles Macaskie and his wife Dorothy. Spielplatz in Hertfordshire looks like any other sleepy little village, but there is something very different about living here. The manicured lawns and neatly trimmed bushes are hiding a multitude of skin.
And while you don’t have to be nude to live here- they probably won’t sell you a house if you are not. Splashing in the swimming pool, mowing the lawn, even enjoying a pint in the local, its inhabitants are always stripped for action.
They are living such a life for the last 85 years. They execute their daily chores, attend the party and attend community gatherings without wearing any dress. Normally dressed neighbors, postmen, and supermarket delivery drivers visit the place to execute their duties and witness the villagers as nude, but it is okay for them. They never seem perturbed.
As per reports, lots of tourists visit this village. Interestingly, even the visitors abide by the rule of the village and try to interact with the residents without wearing dresses, while it is not an issue even if they visit in a dress.
It is not that they do not have money or they are illiterate, they do it to enjoy their life. Their lifestyle has been laid bare in a new documentary offering the outside world a glimpse into naturism.
