How about www.badgellswoodcamping.co.uk, its this side of the water in kent, open fires allowed and plenty of trees to hang from.
I think you have to purchase fire wood from site, which does not bother me tbh.
Great bit of land for a wander round as well.
I could also probably sort my mates land out, but parking is not great and you have to share the woods with his tanks etc...

The Kent site looks interesting. But I don't mind playing with the tanks. All we need is 1/4 acre to play on.

We could always do a stealth camp. A local wood to me is part of a large agricultural estate. Half a KM off the road and in the middle of nowhere. The farm tenant gives not one shite. Had loads of nights with the kids and never been disturbed. M@ has spent a night over there too, as I remember, trollyed and slept inside a.... M@?
