Last night was our 4th visit to this outstanding club so we thought it was about time we reviewed it!

Our first ever experience was at this club last December and we were amazed at how classy and fun and relaxed it is.

Every time we have visited be it on a Friday or Saturday night it is full of beautiful friendly people who just make it a great night.

We've also stayed at the hotel and again we can't fault it!

Last night we stayed over with a friend so an extra bed was put in our room!

We were very impressed with the huge bedroom, sexy decor and amazing bath and shower !

In our opinion V.A is definitely one of the best clubs around and a brilliant start if you are new to all of this.

Thanks for so many amazing nights, we are already planning the next visit xx

VA came up trumps again. Never mind the quantity its the quality of horny fun people this club attracts. I had a awesome time with some very sexy couples. Shame I didn't get to meet the tasty single female until I was going home Wah!!. But hats off to Jules & Scott for running this 1st class adult fun establishment.

We attended the 'behind closed doors' party last night. Quieter than the last one but oh so much more fun. As usual the staff and owners bent over backwards to facilitate the needs of the guests, the venue was spotless, the hot tub hot and the music just right. Plenty of sexy fun all over the venue and we had more than our fair share I'm sure ;)

If you haven't been before why not? If you have and you didn't attend last night then you missed out on one hell of a fun night. We'll be back as soon as we can xx

Out 2nd visit as we enjoyed the first one, this was even better. Lots of sexy couples in last night, we made good use of the fantastic hot tub and surrounding areas.

So much sexy fun going on around. We met a lovely couple who were here having their first swinging experience and they went away with a big smile on their faces!!

Everyone was very friendly once again, can't wait to get back for some more fun soon.

Arron & Sharon xx

The VA is by far the best club in the UK in my opinion.

The standards that they set and the facilities are by far superior to any other club that I have been to.

I attended the Festival of Fun last weekend and this was no exception - a fantastic weekend from start to finish and a good time was had by all.

Scott and Jules are fantastic hosts, nothing is ever too much trouble and they always make sure everyone is having a good time and things are running smoothly.

Heres to lots more great nights - see you soon :-) xxxx

Great venue, friendly crowd and a no pressure, welcoming environment.i really liked the play area set up with lots of different areas and popped my hot tub cherry and had a splash. Only negatives were the shared toilets and lack of lockers.. My fault for arriving late but worrying about my bag and valuables while playing was a bit distracting. In all though a great place and I won't hesitate to return x

Finally got round to writing a review for the festival of fun!

We had a great time! As usual the staff were very friendly and accommodating, the venue was clean and well presented.

We did have a couple if problems with our towels being taken by others when they were fully aware they were ours. One lady even snatched our rolled up towels off the end of our bed while we were playing! (Yes you in the orange dress).

We stayed right through until Sunday and learnt that this is an ongoing issue that the staff struggle to deal with. So come on people, stick to your own towels!

Sunday we met some fantastic people sitting in the hot tub and even got some chips provided by Jules in there xxxx.

Next year we'll be camping as we stayed at the premier in this year and think we missed out on some fun and friends on the campsite!

Thank you to all the staff that worked so hard we'll be back soon!

I been to this club before and I had an ok time however. I attended the VA festival over the weekend and I have a mixed review compared to what others on here so I entered the venue and no stopped me what's so ever so one will ask were was the Secuirty ??? I played with two women then went to the reception and payed my way I got my wrist band and thought to my self if I have just done that anyone would of done this with people belongings everywhere? However the entertainment. was not bad and the club in the evening was ok I went to another lifestyle festvail a few months ago and the 1st thing you do is compare the two of it and for standards this was overall poor unlike the other festvail were there was a very high Secuirty over the weekend I hope VA can change a few more things wen they plan to do another big Event

We have been to VA several times and for us newbie swingers is a fantastic place to go .There is no pressure to do any swinging and everyone is respectful and very friendly. The staff are fantastic and always make you feel very welcome, they clearly know what the customers want and deliver to a high standard. The club is very clean and also have the benefit of a hot tub.

We recently attended ‘festival of fun’ and there was lots of fun I can tell you. The shows were great and the live band “Tush” was fabulous aided by copious amounts of foam which the ladies seemed to love. Others chose to camp which of course is far more sociable, but we were lucky enough to have one of the hotel rooms, which was very convenient for the wife. So if you’re thinking of going next year and you want a room, then you’re going to need to book sooner rather than later as they go very quickly.

The food was excellent and reasonably priced and despite there being several hundred horny mouths to feed, we were never left more than five minutes waiting for our food.

The bar is fully licensed and well priced. They use a tab system, so you don’t have to worry about carrying your wallet between your bum cheeks.

So, in essence we recommend VA as a club for everyone from the new and nervous to the more hardened. We met lots of great people and hopefully this will extend to long term friendships some of which we hope may have some extra benefits ;-) . So please say Hi if recognise us from the festival.

It was our first time at the Vanilla Alternative, and what better way to be introduced to the club than going to the Festival of Fun. We camped in the field out the back, which was absolutely fantastic. (The weather helped). Got to meet some fabulous people. Both Jules and Scott do an amazing job at keeping the club classy looking. We found it clean and well presented. My only negative about the weekend, was that there was only 1 shower for the campers, and that to use the toilets we had to walk all the way to the house. Doesn't seem a far way, but when you need to go first thing in a morning, it IS a long way lol. Other than that, my positives were : Hot Tub (WOW), the DJ on the Friday night was amazing, the atmosphere was electric ! The people attending were all friendly and we met some lovely people and have hopefully made life long friends :)

We will definitely be going to this club again, when we have the chance ! xxx

I attended the Festival of Fun and this was my first visit to Vanilla Alternative. Prior to attending I had only heard very positive reviews that this club has excellent facilities and is classed as one the best swinging venue in the UK. I can confirm that I concur with observation's of my colleagues. The weekend festival consisted of people setting up tents in the grounds having access to the club and facilities. On Friday evening when I entered the club I was could not believe that so many attractive fit and sexually alluring woman were in one place, I was astounded. Music was on point, bar service excellent and the playing areas are the cleanest and most spacious that I have seen. I must confess that I was lucky to know a few people there as it was not really a Festival for single guys to attend due to number of groups of couples in attendance. I had the most fun with some hottie in my tent, as I was selfish and did not want to share playing with others..more fun for me..the marquee on Saturday with the band and foam party was intrinsically erotic and I do not know how that band managed to entertain with all the palying going on in the audience. The owner of club is very welcoming and ensure that new cummers were looked after..thanxs for the kiss at the bar and attempting to pull me into the foam..thoroughly enjoyed meeting old and new friend..and I am cumming back for all you..what an Altenative..the name is perfectly suited..Sensual Hugs ..SN XX

Attended the Festival of Fun here with Cheery Cherry with the sole intention of meeting friends we met from another swingers festival. The campsite was in the lush picturesque grounds of the club by a riverbank, and we couldn't ask for a more friendly welcome when we rocked up!

The club itself was very well set out, clean, friendly and what a fantastic hot tub! definitely on our visit list in future....The owners/event organizers were really friendly and a bit mad (Jules)and that made for a memorable fantastic weekend of fun socializing and great entertainment in the inflatable marquee with Band, shows, foam party etc

A massive thank you and well done to all those involved in this event, can't wait for next year as we already have put it in our diary

I had the very great pleasure of attending the Festival of Fun this weekend and will definitely be attending this venue again. The owners, especially Jules, are as mad as a box of frogs and make you feel totally at ease & welcome. Fantastic facilities, play areas, Jacuzzi and bar area. Clean, smart and well equipped. Thank you x

This is what we call a fabulous quality swingers club!!

Quite far from London, ok but so well worth the journey. Hubby and I were so excited to get there and from their great website to the idea of fun, our car trip went very quick as were already dying with excitement!!

On arrival, no disappointment ; it already looked luxurious with great posh surroundings and a sexy reception area. The venue itself is just stunning and well thought after (with a cosy English / Chesterfield style living room with a fire place!). The owner Jules has definitely mastered everything with great success.

The drinks are affordable and you have to use plastic glasses to go to play areas so well done Jules on thinking about safety.

You have to dress down with towels when arriving in the play areas. That is great as we hate voyeurism which can be the case when people just pass fully clothed to stare.

There are lockers, a gigantic hot tub, sexy lights, a hotel and most of all, great company!! We had the fun of our lives with a lovely couple and we are still thinking about it!! ;))

Thanks VA, you will see us back!!!

Muah!! XXXXXX

Visited VA on sat night for the first time! We were both nervous as we went through the doors but were soon relaxed when we were shown around. We were very pleased with the cleanliness and how calm the place felt. The guests there were so friendly and made us felt at ease. We didnt think that we would have played on the first visit but we did and enjoyed ourselves so much. We would recommend this place and hope to go there again.

If we could pick this club up and move it 180 miles closer with the the owners and staff in it we would be in there every week. It is spotless, classy and you are made to feel so welcome & comfortable. The place filled up very well by 10pm and by midnight all the numerous beds in the play rooms were full not to mention the jacuzzi which we enjoyed. The owners really are special people we had a really late night on the Friday before getting down to The VA on the Saturday and by 2am were do for. We asked Jules the lady who owns it with her partner to get us a cab 5 minted later she came to get us I asked her were the taxi was she said she didn't order one and she would be taking us back to the hotel & she wouldn't take a penny from us. We will be getting some of our friends in the north together who haven't been so so we can show the club off to them and a small repayment for their fantastic hospitality and kindness. A truly wonderful place run and staffed by truly wonderful people.. We will be back in for guys as soon as we can xxx

We tried Vanilla Alternative after reading so good reviews and seeing the great website. When we arrived we were well received and the club was very well presented. The bar area and chill out zones were great. Sadly for us, the play area was a bit too open and lacked any areas where you can lock the door or know you are being watched but still have a little privacy. Also we were told, that if we wanted to be in the play rooms we had to strip, so that meant moving from the bar area (swapping our drinks from glass glasses to plastic glasses)and then getting changed into a towel before walking around the play rooms. This killed it for us, as we find the whole sexy lingerie / outfit side of it very erotic and much better than just a towel or naked body. The hot tub looked fantastic but was rammed full of people and for us was just to full. So whilst we cannot fault the friendly staff and clean surroundings we doubt we will be returning to the VA

This was our first ever swingers club and in hindsight a great place to start. We have been back since as well but never got round to writing a review until now.

The club is well presented and very clean throughout. Considering this was our first swingers club the nerves soon went when we met the staff on reception and they showed is round. Theres good music, a purely couples room, lots of beds, a great jacuzzi and so on.

If your thinking of trying a club for your first time we really think this is the place to go :)

We have been there last Friday and Saturday. Friday we stayed at the VA hotel, the hotel was clean and comfortable. Did what was ment to do. The staff were all 5*.It was our first time in a swingers club so we were a bit nervous but soon we were shown around by a charming female staff and it made us feel more comfortable. Excellent environment, amazing hot tub and we met some sexy people. We will be there again soon and will take on full membership for sure. Definitely recommend. Xx
