Clothes for activities

For all activities comfortable, non-restrictive clothes and sensible fastening footwear are essential. Jeans are not suitable. For those participating in Kayaking, a complete change of clothes, including footwear, is required.


Although Tile Barn is a safe and secure site, we do not provide lockers for possessions. Please do not therefore bring unnecessary valuables, as Tile Barn cannot accept any responsibility for lost or damaged items.
