Although I'm one of nature's larks and usually awake from 6 or 7, I still try and be as quiet as possible until at least 9 out of consideration  for those of more nocturnal habits. I tiptoe about, whispering to the dogs, and don't put the whistle on the kettle or anything like that. The dogs are pretty considerate too, and seem to understand that they need to be quiet.

I'm amazed at the number of people who will bellow a hearty "Morning!" at the top of their voices when you meet them on the way to the lav though, no matter how early it is. I always respond with just a wave or a whispered greeting, in the hope that they'll get the hint. I often think they'd be the first to complain if others went about yelling "Goodnight" to all and sundry at midnight.

Early risers sometimes have a sanctimoniousness about them imo - sort of "I'm up and about, and so should you be". As long as the owls respect my need for quiet after 11, I'm more than happy to be quiet until 9 or so.

I do my best to keep mine quiet until 8am, but as my boy likes to get up at 5am it is a bit hard!!!! This time, i had small bags of dry cereal for him to eat, he looked at things on the ds, read, drew, squashed ants, looked at birds, took him for a walk. We managed to keep him quiet till 8ish then let him loose!!!! as for evening, we are shattered by 10pm at the lastest!

I couldnt wear very early/late noise, so i pick my sites very carefully. This usualy means ones with absolutely bugger-all by way of facilities for kids or families. Nor ones that allow 'groups' of folk together. You want a site that is well governed by the owners, not just one that takes your brass and leaves you to it. I know of one where, if you managed to wangle your way past the owner to get in, they would have no hesitation in hoiking you and yours off the site at whatever hour you are making the racket! Which suits me just fine.

This may sound a bit anti-social, but if you dont want disturbance, it pays to cut out most of the potential sources at the outset. I appreciate that not all kids or groups make a racket, but if they are not even there to start with, it reduces the likleyhood straight away.

I avoid sites that offer loads of facilities for kids, and on-site bars, for the same reason. We don't go away in school holidays, either.

Sometimes it backfires though. This year there were a very posh and strait-laced family with 4 teenagers who were constantly playing one ball game after another in the camping field, only letting up to eat or swap the ball for a frisbee. They kept hitting our kitchen, but luckily never when it was in use.

I never go to english sites that have bars or many facilities for all the reasons above, but I guess the down side of a more relaxed place, like the one I was in, is that no-one in charge seems to worry how far away the tents are from eachother.  This did worry me slightly, but I didn't want to ruin the relaxed vibe by reading the riot act to the people who pitched behind us (it was evening time and I only realised what they had done when I returned) - their guy ropes were a couple foot away from ours. I did race over though when I thought they were putting a toilet tent even closer and asked them to move it.  They did quite willingly but it was still only about 5 feet away from our tent. Even worse though it turned out to be a kitchen tent - which could have been dangerous. I do like it when the owners of campsite stroll around to check, its reassuring.

i quite enjoy the hum of people milling around at whatever time they like, but i can sleep through anything, people up and about makes me feel alittle safer and whilst i lay all warm and snug i wonder why they need to be up so early or late. Unruly noise or a ball being kicked at my tent may envoke a little anger, but its everyones holiday and a little give and take is needed i think.

On most sites we try to make minimum noise until 7am, If my 3 year old wakes at 6 we get him to snuggle in with us.he is pretty good like that tho. Then from 7 to 8ish low level talking and putting the kettle on. I've found from 7 many are starting to get up, but we remind the kids not to shout etc.

I don't mind low level mood from 6 myself, there's always going to be people making a cuppa, going to the showers, the odd baby or toddler kicking off. We had to wake at 6am once this trip and start to pack the tent away. Hard work trying not to make too much rustling & car door opening noises. I think we did pretty well, managed to keep the kids in one inner tent until 7.15, then lifted them straight into the car.

Talking of noise carrying! We overheard some teenagers talking about our Double Outhouse utility tent as they passed one night. They thought it was dumb that someone would want such a tall tent, they could not work out how people would sleep in it Oh how I wished I'd shouted the answer to them.

Its amazing how folk think you cant hear them just because theres three microns of flysheet between them and you outside!  Do they not realise you can hear a rabbit fart three fields away, in the dead of night?

This is a bit of a tricky one. I always need a loo trip the minute I wake up and the thing that normally wakes me up is my 2 year old! Therefore he ends up coming to the toilet block with me and i'm still trying to get him to grasp the 'whisper' concept!!!!

We then go back to the tent, i give him breakfast and we read, play with his toys etc, however, he's usually awake by 6am and believe me 2 hrs is a long long time to contain a 2 yr old quietly in a tent!
