Sale particulars say:

"A truly outstanding detached family home in one of the most idyllic settings one could possibly find...

...The Village of Backwell has a host of facilities, which include .....[blah blah] and Bristol International Airport is only 4 miles away."

Hmmm.....

the most idyllic setting one could possibly find ?

airport 4 miles away ?

you be the judge - the green arrow marks the spot



the village of Backwell may be 4 miles from the airport.....but this house isn't in it !

It might be the perfect setting, just beacause its near the airport don't mean you are going to hear the planes, planes have certain flight paths to follow and if you look at the map you can see the runways are quite away from the green arrow. :)

but think how smug you'll feel when you touchdown from holiday.

through passport control, go home, have a cup of tea and a snooze, go collect your bags a bit later when it's quiet.

you'll hear the planes :)

my gran used to live in a house where the red 'x' is on the map:



and when the planes come in to land, you know about it :)

but only if you're in the garden, double glazing cut out most of the noise.

I live about five miles from the top left of the map and the planes fly directly over my house :)

and one of those diagonal runways does pretty much point in a stright line at the green arrow.

I hate estate agents too.

Dexters broke our gate post when they put their sign up. Then they lost our keys - and lied about it for a week *(and we kept having to go home, or get other people to go to our home to let them in). Then they told us that they didn't see what the problem was... we could just go to any key shop and get a new key. WRONG - it's a Banham key, so you have to go to a Banham approved shop. And the keys are £12 each.

We are now not moving and are getting the loft done instead... it's cheaper and you don't have to deal with useless liars like Dexters.

Still, at least us pulling out meant that a chain collapsed. Ha ha.

Fucking lying wankers.

Looking at the location (not sure of the scale) the noise will be more obvious when there is a SW wind blowing. Aircraft take off into wind and SW is the prevailing wind, so that location will hear the take-offs, but quite briefly, I'd suggest.

The landings probably won't be heard unless the wind is from the S - does depend how much they use reverse thrust.

When the wind is in the E (which is rare) the aircraft will be landing from the left of the map, and taking off towards the right, in which case a SE wind will tend to carry the noise over the house.

The place not to live is at either end of the runway - you catch the noise whatever the wind direction!

and if you approach the house from the other direction you might pass the council tip. Having said that Backwell is a decent place to live - my house is there, so if you're interested in buying a 3 bedroom house nowhere near the airport let me know!!

We're 4 miles from the airport and only hear about 2 planes a week. If that.

~8000 flights in and out a month approx, not quite heathrow I know, but I call that busy :)
it wasn't so much Heathrow I was thinking but how it compared to Gatwick

I live close(ish) to Gatwick, a lot further than four miles mind and it makes very little impact on us.

I guess living here I have grown up always being able to see and hear air traffic... from the top of epsom downs you can see the planes go into heathrow.
