Propagation House Residential Recording

Nestled in the glorious North Cornwall countryside is Propagation House. I’ve been working with the owner, Mark, to revamp and rejuvenate this well loved and established recording retreat.

The main studio is made up of a control room, 2 live rooms and an isolated dead room.

The accommodation can sleep up to 10 in 5 double en-suite bedrooms (one with jacuzzi bath), a large farmhouse style kitchen and a conservatory (which is tied into the studio as the ‘extra live’ live room).

We have both Pro Tools HD and Logic X
