We have stayed at Bearsted on several occasions and, although the nearby roads could be heard, were not overly disturbed by them. Our latest stay, however, was markedly different. The nearby A road and Motorway were very noisy indeed. Added to this was the Rookery on site. It was Springtime and they were, I think, nest building. The noise started at dawn and it disturbed both our sleeps. My husband is slightly deaf and an extremely sound sleeper and even he complained. We have decided, with regret, that we will not stay at Bearsted again.
