Man, 86, wants to rent your garden to strip naked - as his is surrounded by houses

A pensioner is asking to hire out people’s gardens where he can spend time frolicking around naked.

The 86 year old naturist, Stuart Haywood, is hoping to continue his hobby of stripping naked, which he began in 2008, in other’s secluded back gardens.

Recalling the first time he bared all, the retired accountant and green grocer explained that he was attending a life drawing session in Swadlincote , South Derbyshire, when he thought, “I can do that”.

He has been doing it ever since.

Stuart admits that before he began going nude, the only person who had seen him naked in over 50 years was his wife Rhona.

Ever since his first stint with naturism 14 years ago, Stuart and Rhona have been visiting Lakeside Farm Naturist Holidays, near Skegness for two weeks every year.

Although unlike her husband, Rhona doesn’t feel comfortable stripping down, she is happy to be around the other naked guests.

The pair even renewed their vows at the holiday destination - with a naked vicar.

But as Stuart and his wife grow older, they are finding it harder to make the journey to Skegness, which is in Lincolnshire, and he now wants to find somewhere close to home where he can continue to carry out his hobby.

In return for the use of a person’s garden, Stuart is offering money, gardening tips and any other knowledge he may have that could be of use or interest to the garden owner .

He said: “I would like to find someone with a secluded garden who would allow me access to it for a few hours per week to allow me to follow my interests.”

He told Staffordshire Live: “I have a lift in spirits when I take my clothes off. It is a sense of freedom. You're never too old to be naked and should never be ashamed of your body."

However, Stuart has shared how he is unable to be naked in his own home as the bungalow he shares with his wife is surrounded by other houses and is very close to a public footpath.

Subsequently, he is now looking for somewhere new to explore.

He also encourages others to give naturism a try and says that no matter how old, "you should never be ashamed of your body".
