A holiday cottage in Essex is one of the best places to bare all in the UK, according to a new guide.

Bare Britain highlights Pevors Farm, a naturist cottage in Sible Hedingham, as one of the top five resorts for naturists to visit.

The other four resorts are Broadlands in Norfolk, South Hants in Hampshire, Southleigh Manor in Cornwall and Tything Barn in Wales.

The guide also includes information about more than 50 beaches.

Author Nick Mayhew said he wanted to highlight Britain's many "idyllic" nudist locations.

"With so many beautiful beaches around our coastline as well as friendly clubs in great locations around the country, we hope this guide will inspire many more Britons to give bare bathing a go," he said.

Commercial manager for British Naturism Andrew Welch said being naked in the open air was a "great antidote" to the stresses of everyday life.

"Many of Britain's beaches rival those on the continent and are perfect for baring all. Hopefully we will have a lovely warm summer so we can make the most of what Britain has to offer," he said.

The guide is due to be launched on 5 June, World Naturist Day.
