Situated 10 minutes from Oxford city centre in the village of Cumnor, and surrounded by beautiful farmland, the location of Glasshouse Studios has been used as rehearsal rooms and recording studios since the mid 1980’s.
The building itself was originally a cold store room for the farms apples and other fruits, and it’s thick insulated walls and heavy doors were an obvious choice for a music studio. The building was originally converted in the mid 80’s and its been used by just about every well known band to come out of Oxford since then.
After several name changes and various owners the studio has now been completely renovated; new floors, walls, ceilings, a new roof, complete rewiring throughout, a new kitchen and installation of a much-appreciated indoor toilet (the outdoor one is still available for those who prefer).
All in all it’s a much nicer place to be.
Glasshouse Studios now has all of the old charm and seclusion of its predecessors, but with the comfort and modernity you would expect from a top rehearsal facility.
