This very thing is happening to us this weekend. The motor home next door seems to enjoy listening to what sounds like audible books or a monologue-type radio channel. Started last night about 7 pm and stopped about 11. No big deal about that you might say. We heard every word booming out. It was very annoying. Everyone who passed had a good gawp at their van. They eventually closed their blinds. I suppose we are rather spoiled on our site - the first time it's happened in a couple of years.

I suppose I should add it's not the time that's an issue here - it's more about someone's racket being imposed on others whether they like it or not.

I was looking at a site in Suffolk for a break next week, and their quiet time is 9pm. Even this old git thinks that is a bit too early. Like others have said noise travels on site, so usually when I totter off for my night time wee around 10pm to the loos I check and listen if I can hear our tv if its still on from close by. Ear plugs are a good thing    but I dont use them very often. As for the mornings I actually like to hear a bit of noise around me providing its not silly o`clock.

I think that's the problem though Geoff, defining what is "Silly o'clock".

Whilst I'm happy with "silence" from midnight to about 06:30, my neighbour may want to bed down at 10pm, whilst the chap the other side doesn't tend to go to bed until 1:30am, but expects us all to stay quiet before 9am, as he likes to lie in!

I consider myself about average on this, and thankful/lucky that I am. I'm not bothered if someone wakes me a little before 7am (I consider that a lie in) and don't expect all to be quiet much before midnight.

Having said that, there's a lot to be said for snuggling down at about 10:30 in the winter... but that normally doesn't get affected by neighbours, as we rarely have them!


On our first trip to France 18 months ago, we got woken most mornings, at around 4am, by a crying baby about 10m away. I could live with that, to be fair, but what was annoying, was mummy dearest singing Bob the Builder... in Dutch... to send the little sweetie back to sleep!

Never thought of that Mucker. As we have only ever been to adult sites babies crying and mummys lulabys have never been a problem. As our next 2 trips are to family sites perhaps I will get an eye opener (excuse the pun) to this. Still at least the older kids should be at school when we go. Geoff

Just back from a long weekend at Breck Farm in Norfolk. Our field had a 9pm quiet time and to be honest most people were quiet long before then. Last night there was a group of teenagers playing rugby until late, but they were quiet and did ask if they were making too much noise as I walked over to the loo. The warden said as long as no-one else minded and they did keep the noise down he was happy for them to carry a little longer.

This has been a very good thread to get people's views on what they consider noise.
I agree about the TV and similar it is annoying to be able to hear a programme we had this in one siite with a caravan nobody complained until the BBC news at 10 finished and then someone knocked on their door and asked them to turn the sound down!!

Usually soft chatting does not bother me but if one or more suddenly laugh this change of sound can cause you to wake suddenly and then not so good especially if after 11.

The worst with this was two sisters and a husband who were getting quite drunk and because we had not got back until midnight we didn't take to much notice but come 1.30 and the language was the f word everyother shouted word I had to ask them if they could possibly keep the noise down - some abuse later and they turned in...until the worst one went into her tent and became amorous with her husband   - sorry but me bursting out laughing seemed to do the trick as they were silent after that!! They were asked to leave the next day - we were not the only ones not happy with them. It is all about consideration.

We tend to choose sites with a 10 pm quiet time but we are sometimes talking quietly till later and tend to ask our neighbours if we are disturbing them at all.

With children I can tolerate a parent trying to keep a child quiet during the night - it happens but children running amok at night or early morning I don't tolerate very well.

We are very much aware when we camp that our young dog as we live in the country we are happy if he barks at night but of course he has to learn he cannot do this in a tent - especially in the early hours of the morning when someone is heading towards the toilet block and he hears them walk past. We hope if anyone hears us trying to get the dog to be quiet (he's learning ) again they will be a little tolerant.

On the subject of noise does anyone have a tent zip which is not noisy or any tips on making them less noisy especially at 3am when they sound especially loud??

Hope the OP finds a good site and enjoys their camping let us know how you get on.




Spot on I think.

Sometimes early depature of your pitch by 10am does encourage a lot of people to get up early.

One family next to us got up and started striking their tent and opening shutting the car door dozens of times throughout loading...the time 5am.

5am? That's officially the middle of the night?!
I don't think I could stay on a site where you had to leave by 10am.

I'd probably have to pack the tent up the night before to manage that!

I have just tried out my first time in our new caravan on a quiet campsite in Yorkshire. There was only our caravan and another group (2 adults and an 8 year old) in their tent nearby. I don't mind a drink and chat, but they were drinking all day and into the evening. They offered us a drink, but they had been drinking so much all day that their language was really foul, and the guy found it amusing that he could go behind the tent rather than use the toilets nearby which did not really bother me - but the language (very sexual and embarrassing towards his wife in from of their 8 year old daughter), insults and finding it really amusing to fart every 5 minutes as loud as he could made it quite uncomfortable to stay so we went home a night early just to get away. As this was my first time on a site I hope this is not normal to find drunk, foul mouthed people using the sites as a p**s up.

That's less about the noise and more about being a disgusting pig!

I think a dose of common sense is required here. Look at what your neighbours are doing and be sensitive. If you can see they have gone to bed (and you can tell in a tent as it stops glowing like a beacon) hush up. If they're sat outside having a chat then there's no need to develop a system of communication with complex hand signals!

I like it quiet at night on sites but I've never worried about the sound of other folks tent or sleeping bag zips. But you can reduce the sound of them - just do them up & undo them very slowly. I developed this technique to avoid disturbing the dragon who is a light sleeper.

I worry about noise because my middle son has Tourettes which doesn't obey the quiet time rules and if he wakes in the night, he usually tics! As well as the tics during the normal hours.

I feel sorry for our neighbours when camping but do try to explain things when we pitch and so far have had no issues.
