We are looking for a nice rural site within 2 hours of London. I love Blackberry Wood but am too late to book. Also love Kitts Camping in Sussex. Can anyone recommend anything similar for 6 adults and 8 under 6 year olds?

Normans Bay near Pevensey was our go-to site when we lived in London. Right by the beach, walking distance to a nice pub with beer garden, probably got playground although it was pre-DC when we went.

Sounds lovely by the beach but does it allow fires?

No - it's a Camping & Caravanning Club site so may not be your thing if you're looking for something more free and easy.

Breck Farm in Norfolk allows fires and is supposed to be nice and laidback. (We normally go to neighbouring Kelling Heath which has more facilities.)

I second Breck Farm although it's 3 hrs from us (West London). My all time fave though is

We also like and the next on our hit list is

All allow fires.

About Welsummer - we found that our kids (7 & 4) did not like the woods too much (very enclosed and quite dark) whereas they love the woods at Forgewood which also had rope swings.

The Secret Garden, Wisbech is amazing. Not sure how far it is for you though.

We went there last summer for with 2 other families and some grandparents and had a ball. Sort of place you want to do cartwheels through the meadow.

Would recommend the site and the owners who are incredibly helpful. Our kids loved it!
