Top ten loved and hated countryside noises

Country Life unveils our most loved and hated countryside noises. Listen to them all online.


  1. I agree with all these! I listened to a few just to confirm that I do love or hate them. xx

  2. I do too. I noticed though that you don't have to live in the countryside to hear most of these noises. I hear the lovely sound of church bells in our town for instance and of course I also hear the lovely sound of bees buzzing in my garden as well as the very annoying sound of buzzing bluebottles. Sometimes, I even hear the soothing sound of clip-clopping of horses going past my house!

    The most hated noise on the list for me would be the sound of planes flying overhead. They are indeed disturbing the peace of the Hertfordshire countryside and they fly over our small town increasingly.
