Am looking for suggestions for quiet places to pitchup very close to or with direct access to calm water in around Central England so that we can have a play with and make fools of ourselves in a new inflatable kayak.

We love Cashel, Loch Lomond and their lochside pitches but just a bit too far at the moment.

Lyndon Top, Rutland Water, but make sure you write and support it against the Council trying to close it.

Thanks for the ideas, if I said Wales would there be other sites, really want a pitch right next to water that you can use a kayak on.

Try this one

Its literally right on the lake and people pitch up and sail and canoe directly from it.

But take plenty of provisions because there's nothing there.

Is the Lakes to far away
For this trip yes bit too far, but later on the way to Scotland would be ok.

The reason we like Cashel, loch Lomond is you can park right on the loch edge and walk out into the Loch it is quite shallow, a bit sheltered and quiet. Just seeking something similar but closer to home.

Quick update, on the off chance we did try a couple of river based sites near Oswestry and Shrewsbury but the waters were high and access awkward.

So we traveled a bit further to Pant-Yr-Onnen, Bala, balacamping.co.uk. For our purposes almost perfect lots of space, shallow easy access right from the pitch, a slightly sheltered bay and not busy :D.

Thanks to everyone for their suggestions we have bookmarked a few. (y)

But the prize goes to @jongood , thanks.

Try Croft Farm Waterpark near Tewksbury.

Nice little lake ideal for inflatable kayaks, paddle boarding, windsurfing, pedalo’s etc.
