I've read the two posts on the Lodge, but neither addresses the question I'm most concerned about, viz how "intrusive" the bells are. Clearly, when one stays next to a cathedral, one should not be surprised that there's bell-ringing. I'm wondering whether anyone can tell me how loud the bells are. I know, of course, that's a highly subjective kind of thing, but we'll be jet-lagging and would love to have a good night's sleep. I'm wondering whether anyone happens to know whether wearing earplugs would be sufficient to block the sound of the hourly (more than that?) ringing. I've heard it's a lovely and restful place to stay, but I'm thinking maybe it's not such a great idea on our very first night abroad. (We never sleep on TransAtlantic flights.) Thanks very much!
