Club Info
Welcome to The Vanilla Alternative.

We are a friendly fully licensed club and hotel on the borders of Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire.
The club and hotel sit in 8 acres of countryside and yet we are easily found on the A1 Northbound.
The club itself is set up with comfy social areas to sit back, relax and enjoy a few drinks, and also lovely clean attractive play areas for ...well you know!

Our bar is well stocked with everything from soft drinks and tea and coffee to champagne, beers and spirits, Daks the bar manager is also a whizz with the cocktails.
The dance floor is adjacent to the bar and the pole is often in use, and Jamie the DJ is happy to play anything you ask.

We have a comfy snug area away from the noise and chatter of the bar full of comfy chesterfield sofas and tub chairs where its great to just sit and chat, we also serve a buffet in here on Friday and Saturday evenings. All the food is prepared onsite fresh each day and we have been awarded a 5* rating by the scores on the doors scheme for kitchen hygiene.

Down the corridor you will find all our play ares. There is a couples only area set in the hexigon room, a large play area with lovely memory foam anti bacterial beds and fresh sheets and towels daily, a smaller more intimate area across the back of the deck and then comes the tub....we have the largest hot tub in any UK club and its totally chemical free. It uses a high grade medical system approved by the health authorities so never will you smell like you have just been to the local pool, nor will your skin and eyes be irritated by harsh chemicals or salts.

We have a locker room for all your bits and pieces and in every locker are fresh white fluffy towels for use in the club. You can also use your locker number as a tab at the bar for the duration of your visit with us.

We have a large dining room in which we sometimes hold erotic dinner parties and is available for private dinners.

The hotel is situated above the club, so if you are staying with us there is no need to go outside once you have checked in. We have 10 ensuite rooms that are all clean and comfy and we are just starting on upgrading all the bathrooms on, and two small rooms that share a bathroom between them. Our hotel is not only available at the weekends but if you want a naughty mid week meet then why not take a room at the VA. To book rooms simply call the office on 07794 730330. Sadly there is no disabled access to the hotel due to the age and layout of the building although the club is wheelchair accessible.

We throw a themed party once a month and seem to have a reputation as the place to celebrate your birthday, so if you fancy doing something different just give us a call.

We welcome members and non members alike and we run a members benefit scheme, including discounted entry, free parties, discounted hotel rooms, exclusive members only parties and a loyalty card when you visit 6 times you get the 7th visit free, this can be used on any event except the annual Festival of Fun weekender and NYE.

The club is available for private hire also.

We hope to meet you all soon.

Your Reviews of The Vanilla Alternative


Went along on Saturday 12th July for our first ever night out at a club as a couple. The club is really very very nice - a good bar, lounge areas lots of play space and some great people...

My g/f was very nervous as a first timer but soon relaxed and we got chatting to a lovely couple J&M from Southampton (if you are on here get in touch please!)

Ended up in the area next to the very nice jacuzzi having lots of fun together with others around us! We will be going back but next time we will be staying the night! An excellent experience!


We visited this weekend on Saturday night. Great environment, friendly people and perfect atmosphere. Had a good look round, enjoyed a few quiet fun times together on the beds and enjoyed being amongst like minded people all having fun. The hot tub is massive and the facilities fantastic. Will definitely be returning. Cannot recommend enough.


Our first club night was fantastic, and I'm glad we chose Vanilla Alternative. We booked a room at their hotel for a Saturday couples evening, and had a brilliant evening. The rooms facilities were excellent, and we could relax and get ready for the evening ahead. We had thought we might take a break back in the room part way through, but everyone was so welcoming we never left the club once the evening got started. We'd happily recommend VA to friends, and will certainly be back.


Went to the couples night last night. Only our second visit but enjoyed it immensely. Nice and busy with a good mix of people. Thoroughly recommend it.


We have been visiting VA most weekends for a year now and LOVE it. The club is so easy on the eye, with a very sexy ambience. The people that attend are from all different backgrounds and from all around the UK, some even travelling from abroad. Made to feel welcome, no one is judged, all different shapes, sizes etc. Plush play areas and a huge hot tub. Atmosphere is electric. A great social area, bar and disco. There are many play areas, with lovely mood lighting and chilled sexy music, as well as a couples only area. A lush free buffet. Really friendly staff, who welcome you in. Always good funxxxx Hopefully see you there.
