Don’t let this oaf put you off, the answer (my beloved wife snores) is Sleep Ease snore stopper vents, they’re silicon tapered tubes joined as a pair (in different sizes) that you slip up your nose at night. Cost around £8 Amazon.

Highly recommended!

He was out of order with an approach like that!

Snoring is difficult to control, as is keeping a baby/toddler quiet. Less so for school-age kids, but their excitement is understandable, even if it is still early!

His approach would have been more understandable for loud music/late-night laughing/loud groups talking etc.

Off the top of my head, I've been woken and/or kept awake by a gurgling baby, soon accompanied by mum singing Bob the Builder... in Dutch! OK, it was 3am feeding time, and the singing was as quiet as she could manage, so we put that down as unexpected entertainment!
Others have included snoring (both from our tent, and others!), hooting owls, zips, those damn bloody pigeons at dawn (cooing AND flapping in the trees above us!), barking/yapping/whining dogs, zips, children being "poorly" (and the ensuing scuffling of the parents cleaning up/changing bedding etc!), folk jogging to the loo on the gravel paths (grass is so much quieter, folks!) foxes, zips, screeching badgers, early morning mooing and neighing, zips, and of course various weather related elements.
Did I mention zips?

I don't always use them, but I ALWAYS take earplugs, just in case!

At best, I would put this one episode behind you, and put it down to him being a complete ar5ehole!

At worst, maybe consider something of this nature... as it say's "You have been warned"!






*Just remember "nearby" is one word... no need for one to drop standards, just because one snores!

Now, farting is even funnier...



Two things...
Farting should not be funny for anyone with a mental age over 9!   

As for the tosser, some would argue that this is also natural, and that "everyone does it", although I do concede I don't believe I have ever knowingly been woken by someone doing THAT in the next tent!

Well at my age I fart everytime I bend over, having to bang in around 30 ground pegs its like a drummer and trombone player practising on site. Plus I snore at night too. Plus if I am a really lucky boy the odd groan can also be heard from my tent at night. Honestly don't worry about it. You were just unlucky to come across the odd pr*t thats out there.

People snoring in another tent is fine. A deer snuffling outside or a fox screeching is something altogether different.

I snore so I am told, never heard it as I'm asleep.
I once made a laminated sign which I put out side the tent.
'Heavy Snorer, pitch close at your own peril'

Don't let one person put you off, there will always be noise on a camp site. On our last trip I could hear snoring in the caravan parked near us, I knew when the baby in the tent next to it produced an explosive nappy and due to medication my husband is a very loud farter and gets up at least once in a night for the toilet.

We all make noise of some kind and some will sound louder at night.
