Watersports at Mallards Pike

Mallards Pike is the perfect place for an adventure on the water!

The lower lake can be booked by organised, private groups (e.g. schools, scouts etc.) for canoeing, kayaking, paddle boarding or raft building activities. These groups need to hold their own public liability insurance. Pre-booking for this is essential, anybody entering the water must have permission from Forestry England.


Please note: Individual boaters and swimming are not permitted - please do not swim in the lake or bring your own paddleboard/kayak etc. Only watersports under the guidance of our agreed partners is allowed.


If you are a group that would like to use the lake please email centralpermissions.westengland@forestryengland.uk. Please contact us at least 12 weeks ahead of your planned date.
