    I've booked us in at Beach View site in Leiston, Suffolk for the weekend

    When I got the confirmation email back, I noticed that the address is Sizewell....something clicked in my mind so I did a quick check on Google Earth which confirmed that the site is a short distance down the beach from the nuclear power station.....eeeeek!

    I chose the site because it is right next to the beach and it looks lovely but I do think it was a bit sly for them not to include Sizewell in their description even though that seems to be the name of the 'village' that it is in

    I did consider cancelling it but having read more reviews a few people say not to be put off by the proximity of it, that it doesn't detract from the lovely site.

    However, I'm always a bit cautious when it comes to reviews, never quite trusting that they haven't been posted by friends and family sooooo....have any of you stayed there and can put my mind at rest. I'm still a bit iffy.....

    Mr Ja63 (ever helpful) said to pack plenty of sunscreen to protect against any radiation rays so we might come back with a nice tan.....either that or glowing green hahaha!

    You should be OK if you don't stay longer than 9 hours.

    We looked at a site near Drigg, the name sounded familiar and Google earth showed it to be across the road from the low level nuclear waste dump, hope they don't let any of that trickle out onto the grass.
