    So at night, from 11pm onwards I can hear this tapping noise. It sounds like a noise that you would make knocking on someones door "knock knock knock" but it sound like it's coming from next door in the room next to mine... My dad could hear it too... The noise happened without fail, every 30 seconds on the dot until about 2am, and then after that it was just random . What the hell could the noise be?!?!

    Oh this happened in our summer home a lot. It turned out to be something in the plumbing.
