Real World Studios
Real world has always been our first choice of venue, with its truly inspirational setting, it is a once in a life time experience and an opportunity not to be missed.
Accommodation is provided in the main house and two cottages on site and further cottages, guesthouse and hotels in the village. The food is as legendary as the local history, but fresh.
A Brief history
Before the 200-year-old water mill was converted to its current, creative purpose, it had been a flour mill, a girls' school - even a semolina factory. Its brilliant design was the result of an architectural competition which included half burying the main control/recording room in the landscaping to reduce its visual impact and to dampen structural vibration. Special care has been taken to maximize the environmental benefits for anyone working in the studio.
The Big Room
Former patrons include, arnaldo antunes, astrid, the beautiful south , frank boeijen, les innocents, james , ron korb, kylie minogue , paralamas, phd, placebo, propellerheads, davidrhodes
a truly inspirational setting for a once in a life time experience and an opportunity not to be missed.
There are other residential studios in the world but none so fine as Sarm Hook End.
