Not many that I'm aware of if its powered....Depending on Size the Short run on the Tone from The Market to French Wier is ok...and I've taken the SIB onto the Ex and Teign many times in the past ...without any Hassle..not that I've looked for it
The Wye is the worth a drive too...if your thinking of a weekend.
I think there are a few Private Skiing lakes one Know nr Highbrige that will cater for you...some municipal lakes have their own craft you can Hire...for fishing ect,but don't allow Private Boats.
Why the interest in Lakes?
Just seen your profile are you talking about the 6m??!..

Somerset is pretty close to the coast? There may be a marina that will let you test launch Portishead maybe? or a water ski lake perhaps Middlemoor Waterpark: water ski, wakeboard, jet ski and karting facilities is the only one i know of and not sure if they would entertain a launch
