Festival Lake in Ebbw Vale has a dedicated disabled access set of swims with parking behind the peg and many other pegs are accessible via wheelchair onto excellent platforms too.

Woodstock lake just outside of Newport has quite a few pegs that are designed for wheel chair access, it is controlled by Newport angling club, not sure if they are taking new members this year but if you are interested PM me and I will send you the contact details

Have a look at Glamorgan anglers. They have done a lot of work on their ponds regarding disabled access. Most of their waters are gated for security and a few have wheelchair friendly toilet facilities. Great choice of ponds and lakes, Bridgend, Llantwit Major, Talbot Green, Barry and others off the beaten track. Well worth looking into and great value for money.
