No sounds, apart from the nearby cows. Really lovely to have a welcome pack including 2 local beers and lovely touches such as fresh cut flowers and handmade soaps. Clearly you had thought of children too, with two giant beanbags (which we never got near!) The check-in time of midday, much earlier than we're used to, was really helpful. Just 20 minutes from the city centre meant we could get there in no time and leave the hustle and bustle to reach beautiful countryside at the end of the day.
