The author here. I''m sorry you had such a poor experience at one of the tiny campsites. Without wishing to gainsay your assertion out of hand, I should perhaps point out that although I've recently purchased a pair of non-prescription reading glasses, there's nothing wrong with my hearing and I was not under the influence of consciousness-altering substances when I stayed at the sites in the book (and, yes, they are my personal selection) though, believe me, the weather when I visited some nearly drove me to take some. I'm therefore intrigued to know where it was that the trains kept you awake. It's possible, of course, that I happened to be there on a night when the wrong sort of leaves/snow/dew/etc on the track meant that there were no trains but I suspect that's a bit of a long shot. Please let me know which site it was by sending me a message via the Tiny Campsites website (www.tinycampsites.co.uk), I'd very much appreciate it.
