The lark's tongue

The Lark’s Tongue is a uniquely inspiring and sustainable residential recording studio and creative hub, just one hour from London. It reconceptualizes traditional studio design to reflect modern record making, combining acoustic acuracy with environmental excellence.

The Lark’s Tongue is effortlessly integrated into its surroundings, 14 acres of which have been largely re-wilded and now capture more carbon than the studios generate.

A massive solar panel array now powers the entire complex along with a ground source heat pump which collects the stored heat of the fields and sends it to the main studio’s concrete floor. And that concrete floor, partnered with vaulted ceilings, produces an absolutely incredible natural reverb!

The old tack room houses the second writing and programming suite which is home to a collection of superb vintage synths.

Lark’s Cottage has 2 double guest bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen and living space which overlooks the vegetable garden to one side and the studio courtyard to the other. The main house has further accommodation.

In the main house kitchen there’s a 9 metre deep well which provides water for most of the toilets, dishwasher, washing machine and outside taps.

Every morning the geese and ducks come up from the lake to the kitchen door for their breakfast while Atticus the macaw free flies outside, returning when he’s ready for his.
