Those seeking a break from clothing have a new destination: the Clover Spa in Birmingham, England.Britain’s first “naturist” hotel, it opened just a few months ago.

England may seem like a cold and damp locale for a nudist resort, but the owners of the spa tell The Daily Mail that the weather won’t be a problem.

The paper reports:

‘We’ve had a bit of stick for the location,’ [owner] Tim Higgs says in reference to those who dismiss Birmingham as ‘wet and miserable.’

‘But naturism in Britain is largely an indoor event, especially if you want it 365 days a year. British weather is unreliable wherever you are.’

The seven-room hotel and spa has a sauna, hot tub, and even a healthfood cafe — but no naked volleyball.

Book it: Small double rooms start at around $113 per night.

Get there: Round trip flights from New York to Birmingham start at around $836.
