This is a lovely river swim with a nice cafe when you get out - light current, very clean and lined with reeds, purple loosestrife and marsh marigolds. Lots of wild life. Park at the boating station and swim either up or down stream. You can also camp and hire kayaks and rowing boats

    This makes for a wonderful Summer's morning swim. Swimmers need to be done before 10am when the larger boats start making their way up and down.

    We swam upstream towards Bodiam Castle for about 40 minutes and then back to the Boating Station cafe for breakfast before hiring out canoes and eventually managing to get to the castle at for lunch. A fantastic day.

    Looking forward to swimming downstream this year.

    • Flashy river / prone to flooding

    This is quite a remote spot, so would advise caution if you are alone. And we heard that the river occasionally floods.

    But we stuck to the central section and didn't encounter any weeds or submerged hazards.

    Swam here on a sunny evening in May. If you're in a car, park at the boating station carpark. Then cross the bridge to the south bank of the river, turn left, and walk upstream along the grassy bank with the river on your left. When you get to the first tree, that's the place to get in - it's fairly easy (if a bit muddy), and the tree-branches help on the way out! It was calm and deep when we were there.
