frequently asked questions
We understand that The White House is a family naturist club but I am worried about bringing my children?
The White House has been catering for families with children for many years and the safety of children is constantly monitored with an appointed trained Child Protection officer working within the official Child Protection Policy guide lines. Many of our members have grown up in The White House and introduced their children and grandchildren.
Will the children be shocked during their first visit to The White House?
Not at all: children take to it like a fish to water.
Are we expected to be naked at all times?
No, when conditions are too cold it is sensible to wear clothes.
Do men get visibly embarrassed during their first visit?
Most unlikely: nudity in a family naturist environment is not sexually stimulating.
I don’t have a great figure, will I look silly?
Naturists, like the general public, come in all shapes, sizes, and colours. Naturists accept people as they are. The naturist experience counteracts the false body image portrayed in the media. Women, in particular, find it gives them body confidence.
Will my friends and colleagues at work find out that I am a naturist?
Not unless you tell them, no surnames are used in the club, no cameras are allowed in the grounds, and mobile phones with cameras cannot be used.
What if I meet someone I know at the club?
This doesn’t happen often and has never been a problem – after all you share the same interests and members do not talk about members to non members.
What sort of people are members of The White House?
Generally a cross-section of the community just like your neighbours – although they are perhaps more independent minded.
Is The White House affiliated to a national body?
Yes, The White House is a member of British Naturism.
How is The White House itself run?
The club is a not-for-profit private limited company, owned by the members, governed by an elected committee from within the membership with a properly constituted AGM each year.
Do we have to be members to enjoy the facilities of The White House?
Yes and we have various membership arrangements for local, distant and overseas members.
Can we bring friends to The WhiteHouse?
Yes we encourage members to bring friends and family to the The WhiteHouse. They often end up joining.
Do visitors have to get naked immediately?
No. We are very relaxed and encourage visitors and new members to take their time to become nude. In summer, you will attract less attention nude than being clothed.
Are we supposed to get involved with the activities and sports as soon as we join?
No. Take time to chill out. Do what suits you.
Do women come by themselves?
Women come alone to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of The WhiteHouse. You can decide to be sociable or solitary and no one will disturb you.
