UK rural areas noiser than cities thanks to gas guns in use

Jump to last reply

Not so bad being woken by sheep or rooster out in rural areas but the gas guns in English countryside are maddening. Farmers blast them from sunrise to sunset to scare birds off crops. And some can be LOUD - like having rockets going off for 16 hours. If there are several planted fields near your hotel or B&B, and you are a light sleeper, or just don't fancy gunfire all day, you'll need earplugs or a white noise app. Be sure to ask before you book what the local area is like.
