These superbly appointed recording studios were set up in 2003 by the current vendor as a private recording studio for himself, family and fellow musicians. It was not established to become a commercial profit making establishment and as such a charity was established in 2006 for the collective musicians to provide tuition and courses as a music academy to the wider community, this work continues within schools although the family chose to keep the studio for their private use from 2013. Over the last two years the vendor has spent a considerable amount of time and resource building up the new luxury studios for his family and friends to enjoy.
The aim was to create a truly special experience with an inspiring and relaxing environment to boost the creative talents. The Studios do not dissapoint when it comes to achieving a creative base. It is no exaggeration to state that the studio enjoys associations with some of the biggest names in the music industry, such is its commitment to providing an enjoyable experience.
