Open from April to the end of September, our pool is heated by an ecologically-friendly and highly-effective combination of wood-burning stove, solar panels and an air-source heat pump.

This keeps the pool between 26C and 30C

 

Perfect for lazy days by the pool and evening dips! 

When you are not in the pool, catch up with your friends on the pool-side sun terrace, relaxing on the sun loungers.

Sizzle up a feast on our barbecue or rustle up a pizza in our wood-fired pizza oven. 

There is always something going on: boules, miniten, meet new friends on the sheltered sun terrace or just relax in the peaceful Yorkshire countryside.

Barbecues and summer fun

 
 

Club house, bar and sauna

Our clubhouse is the club's social centre where you will find our bar. It is run by the members and you will find our prices very reasonable.

 

We hold regular events in the clubhouse, to which visitors are invited, with themed evenings featuring prominently.

During the summer season, tea and coffee are served both morning and afternoon - just listen for the bell!

The clubhouse also houses our sauna which is available for a small charge.

Woodland walks

Situated in woodland that dates back, in part, to before the 1800s, our site offers the opportunity for quiet reflective walks.

Then you may get invited into a barbecue and the wine starts flowing again....

Reviews 

White Rose welcomes visitors to share and enjoy the tranquil setting of our site and use the facilities. Below is a selection of reviews from just a few of our many satisfied visitors.

My wife and I stayed at White Rose From 6th to 9th July this year. It is without doubt the nicest and friendliest club we have visited in our 30 years as naturists. We hired a static caravan “Ash” and it was totally equipped and spotlessly clean. The grounds are a delight to walk around but it can take a while because there is always someone to stop and talk to. The only thing warmer than the weather was the welcome we received from everyone. We will definitely return.

This was our first experience of naturism. We loved every minute. We were made very welcome, the members very friendly. The site itself was absolutely brilliant. The woodland trail, the pool and sauna were a fantastic experience. We can't wait to go back.

Four words sum up this place. Clean clean friendly friendly. Looking forward to going back.

Visited for the day on a rare occasion when we were both free and the weather was good! We were immediately made to feel welcome, given a quick tour of the beautiful site, then left to enjoy the sun and pool until the bell rang for tea. What more could you ask?

Definitely will come again on the next opportunity. Thanks to all the club members for the warm welcome.

Access review

One of the members told us that White Rose was his 'little piece of heaven'. We can see why. Half a dozen visits and counting tells us that we're rather enamoured with the place ourselves. But there are plenty of reviews here more lyrical than this one, telling of the friendliness, the cleanliness, the excellent facilities, the beauty, the relaxed atmosphere and the general bonhomie of this rather special little part of Yorkshire. Put simply, White Rose is a really nice place to go.

 

So I'd like to concentrate on an aspect that is particular to us, and perhaps to others in a similar situation. My wife has mobility issues, and it is necessary for her to use a wheelchair. I am able-bodied, and push her wheelchair when we are out and about. What follows is a brief review of the White Rose Club with disability in mind, written as an able-bodied carer accompanying a disabled person in a standard push wheelchair. I hope it is of use to you.

 

Getting around the site:

The entire site is situated on level ground making it ideal for both disabled users and their carers. The roadways around the site double as footpaths, as on most campsites. Roads are good, firm and smooth in all weathers - very few large chippings to make for an uncomfortable or difficult ride, and no material loose enough to cause the wheels to sink in. Just the occasional puddle in wet weather. Grass camping areas are firm during fine weather, but some areas can become soft during prolonged wet spells, as is to be expected. Setting up camp under the large oak trees can be an advantage in wet weather, as the ground there remains relatively firm, but expect the occasional acorn dropping on your head!

 

Around the central camp facilities there are excellent paved footpaths and 3 good ramps.

 

Pool - there is a access ramp from ground level to the pool area (gated for child safety reasons), and an extensive flat paved area around the pool for sunbathing. Another gated ramp provides access from the pool area to the clubhouse verandah, which is a level covered area with seating around two sides of the building, all of which is wheelchair accessible.

 

The pool itself has a series of wide shallow steps with grab rails alongside. Water temperature is frequently around 30 degrees - hydro-therapy time!

 

Clubhouse - A metal-framed door gives from the verandah into the clubhouse and bar. This has a small lip on it over which a carer can easily manipulate a wheelchair. Alternatively there is a separate entrance to the rear of the building which has a full-length purpose made ramp. This is accessed from ground level at the opposite end of the clubhouse to the pool.

 

Bathroom - The modern shower and toilet facilities are excellent. There is a large toilet cubicle with ample access for a wheelchair, and the shower room is spacious and safe with non-slip flooring, grab bars and a shower stool. All are spotlessly clean. Access to the toilets and shower area is via a small step from the clubhouse verandah, or a larger step from the clubhouse itself. There is no completely level access, but the smaller step should not prove a problem to most carers used to manoeuvring a wheelchair.

 

Privacy Suite - Should you not wish to use the main shower block and/or more privacy is required, White Rose have a fully-equipped privacy suite adjacent to the clubhouse. There is a wide door, level floor and plenty of grab bars strategically placed to assist the disabled visitor. A shower complete with shower seat is provided, a toilet and a basin, and it is in here that the baby-changing table can be found too.

 

The shower is not as powerful as those in the main building but is adequate. Space is at a premium with a wheelchair and two people in there, but whilst showering the chair can be moved up to the toilet area and vice-versa. Heating appears to be limited to a pipe-heater/frost protector so it may get a little chilly in here early and late season, but during the summer it was not an issue. Decor is not as modern as the bang-up-to-date clubhouse shower block, but that is to be expected as the building is older.

 

However, we found it clean, tidy and perfectly serviceable as a disabled privacy suite - something that many other sites don't even have - and as such it is a credit and an asset to the White Rose club.

 

Sauna - the door to the sauna is too narrow for a wheelchair but there is ample space just outside to place one very close, leaving just a few steps from the wheelchair to the sauna bench.

 

Woodland walk - for some time now the members at White Rose have been developing a very pleasant woodland walk within their extensive grounds, and part of the walk is accessible to wheelchairs. The going can be a little soft, as there are bark chippings underfoot, but the path is good and wide and the central part of it is relatively firm in good weather. This intrepid pair of explorers made it about halfway around the walk, but I wouldn't recommend going further than the first bridge unless the carer is feeling particularly energetic! Having said that, the walk down to the bridge and back again makes for a lovely stroll on a pleasant day.

 

All in all, White Rose is not just a friendly site, it is disabled-friendly too. I hope this review is of help if you or your partner are affected by disability and you are thinking of visiting White Rose. We can heartily recommend it. If you have any specific disability related questions I am sure the members there would be pleased to answer them via the 'contact us' links - they have always been most helpful.

Re-roofing clubhouse 2018

In 2018 White Rose undertook a major project to remove the existing roof and replace it with a new one. This work was undertaken by professional contractors.

On completion of the work there was significant amount of internal work to complete, this included;

  • Internal timber frame below new roof

  • Insulation

  • Plaster board to new timber frame

  • Electrics and lighting

  • Internal painting

All of the above internal work was completed by the members of White Rose and it is a true testament of the community spirit of White Rose and its members.

Yorkshire Lavender Gardens - See the wide range of lavender flowers in white, pinks, blues and deep purples. Visit the Lavender Maze, Mediterranean Dry Garden, Sensory Garden and probably Yorkshire’s largest Snakes and Ladders to name but a few.

After wandering through the grounds visit the licensed tea room or treat yourself to something from the gift shop.

York – Surrounded by ancient walls, it is a city with a Roman and Viking past. There is the York Minster to visit and over 30 world class museum including the railway museum. It has a large selection of shops or you could walk down the narrow cobbled streets and browse through over 70 stalls at the Shambles market. 

Scarborough - A seaside resort with stunning scenery, glorious beaches and lots to see and do. Visit Scarborough Castle or Sea Life Centre  or if your feeling more adventurous try 

Peasholm Park. Go boating, take a ride on the miniature railway, be daring on the Sky Trail Adventure or splash about in Alpamare Waterpark.

Or simply walk along the seafront to enjoy the traditional amusement arcades, ice cream parlours, shellfish stalls and beach huts.

Yorkshire Dales - Has some of the finest limestone scenery in the UK, from crags and pavements to an underground labyrinth of caves. Each valley or 'dale' has its own distinct character, set against expansive heather moorland tops. Stone-built villages sit in traditional farming landscapes of field barns, drystone walls and flower-rich hay meadows. 

Spectacular waterfalls and ancient woodland contrast with the scattered remains of former mine workings and other rural industries which remind us of the area's rich industrial heritage.

North Yorkshire Moors - Wide open spaces will give you a sense of space, away from the noise of the traffic.

This stunning landscape responds sensitively to the changing seasons. In early summer you’ll hear the call of the moorland birds, such as the red grouse, curlew and golden plover. Later, as the summer evenings draw in, the flowering heather turns the moors into a purple carpet that stretches for mile after mile. In winter the moors can be exceptionally beautiful, with mist and cloud rising above the sweeping expanses and crisp dustings of frost and snow turning the landscape an ethereal white. 

 22.7 miles

Hutton le Hole - One of the most picturesque of the villages in the North Yorkshire Moors National Park. A clear beck winds it way through the green mounds of grass that form the village green, while local sheep roam free and keep the grass cropped.

Visit the Ryedale Folk Museum in the centre of the village. It houses over 20 reconstructed buildings, including Iron Age roundhouse, Tudor mansion, vintage photographer's studio, craft workshops and farm buildings. Or stroll round the craft workshops whose artisans are hard at work making chocolate, candles, rugs, moorland crafts, glassware and ceramics. Ready for a break then call in at the pub or one of the several cafés – or enjoy an ice cream on the green! 

Helmsley - Is a beautiful market town in the North York Moors National Park. It has  wide selection of shops, galleries and boutiques. Attractions include the National Centre for Birds of Prey, Helmsley Castle, Helmsley Arts Centre and the Walled Gardens and the town even has its own Brewery. After all that if your feeling hungry then pop into one of the country pubs, cosy cafes or the award-winning delis.
