I have my own studio available for hire in a converted stable building pretty much in the middle of nowhere (but fairly near Gerrards Cross). It's pretty unique and provides a great atmosphere away from everything, and has certainly provided some great inspiration for recent work. The location is great, in the middle of Colne Valley park - a designated conservation area of outstanding natural beauty and home to a wide variety of lesser seen wildlife, on the edge of the forest, next to a lake and bang in the middle of some stunning scenery! All this, and it's only 24 minutes from Central London by mainline from Gerrards Cross station.
The live room is a comfortable size - 5.5 metres by 3.5 metres and great for rehearsals for all types of bands. The lower half of room is stone (ok, breezeblock), the upper half wood, and provides a great sound for recording live drums as we've recently discovered. Various backline is available including drums, amps and a basic 6 channel PA.
For recording the same room is also available, and screens are available to allow you to deaden or isolate sound sources. Whilst there isn't a vocal booth as such using the screens produces the desired effect. Other rooms are also available including one made completely of breezeblock for good reverb.
A slightly smaller second room is available for 24hr lockouts etc
Rehearsal rates are good at just £7 per hour or £l20 for a 3-4 hour session or £50 per full day. This gets you the use of the majority of the farm inc. full kitchen and free tea and coffee. If you drink as much as I do sometimes, you will find this pays for your session:) Long days and overnight sessions are available by prior arrangement as we are situated in a working stables environment and need to notify certain people about noise levels in advance some times. Night times though are always good as we are very isolated.
