About Diogenes

Diogenes Sun Club – Naturism on the Hertfordshire/Buckinghamshire Border

A little piece of Heaven in the countryside on the border of Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire, around an hour from Central London in between Maple Cross and Chalfont St Peter. Diogenes naturist club has 6 acres of beautiful landscaped grounds set around a large country house, excellent facilities and an active sporting and social life. Due to our semi-remote location, members require their own transport to visit our naturist club.

Naturist Facilities

Relax or be active, as you choose. Our facilities include amongst other things, a large heated outdoor pool (fully refurbished in 2016), a modern heated indoor pool, sauna suite, children’s play area with climbing frames, swings, slides, a smashing Wendy house, a sandpit, and a large sunbathing lawn.

There are sports competitions and social events held throughout the year. Combined with modern kitchen and bathroom facilities in the house, together with a children’s room and indoor games room plus a spacious west-facing conservatory, you’ll see that we have superb club facilities to enjoy continuously throughout the seasons.

Join us

Come and see why the naturists at Diogenes are among the most contented (some say spoilt) in the land. We invite prospective new members for a “no commitment” free trial visit. For your own trial visit please contact us today.

Our Members

Amelia 1We are truly a vibrant naturist community, with some families now into the third generation of members. There are plenty of children and younger people who love to come and spend time with their friends. On Wednesdays, people who are lucky enough not to have to go to work, regularly meet to spend time with each other – come rain or shine.

Our Social and Sporting Scene

Diogenes has a very active social scene, with organised events held within the club, and at other naturist clubs and at times, even attending international events in Europe.  With a fantastic BBQ cooking area, combined with numerous tables and seating areas, if you’re into outdoor cooking and socialising, then you’ll love what we have to offer here in the beautiful Chiltern Hills.

Sports faciities include four courts for miniten, ten boule pistes and courts for badminton and volleyball.

British Naturism

Diogenes is a member club of British Naturism and is happy to welcome British Naturism members to our club.  If you aren’t yet a member of British Naturism but would like to join, we can assist you with this.  You don’t have to be a member of BN to belong to our club, but we think it’s a good organisation to support and many of our members carry the card!


Our extensive grounds are a mix of formally maintained lawns and more ‘natural’ areas.  There are many paths through the wooded areas and some quiet lawns for those who want privacy with a good book.  We even have a tranquil pond, shaded by trees.

The grounds and gardens look absolutely beautiful in the summer, and we have many members who love to come and tend a particular spot which they have adopted to look after and to develop.
