Maltbarn Studios is an isolated residential writing studio, located in Mid Wales. It offers a stunning, and inspiring retreat to work from with great accommodation, to help clients stay relaxed, and easy, while they concentrate on the real work of writing great records.

Maltbarn's site includes a Welsh Longhouse (1555) which contains the studio and main house, plus a separate cosy cottage. Both sit in a stunning location, seemingly in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by hills, but luckily the nearest civilisation has a Spa shop open to eleven every day!

There are a number of ways to rent Maltbarn Studios. Clients can rent the main studio, in the main longhouse, along with its two bedrooms or for a more budget retreat you can choose to rent just the cottage and setup a pop up writing setup. Finally for larger groups that want complete privacy they can choose to rent the main studio and cottage for complete privacy - but don't forget to feed the cat and chickens !

The studio consists of an open plan vaulted control room and recording room. The equipment centers around a vintage 1977 24 channel Neve Melbourne console and a ProTools / Ableton rig and PMC monitors. The room comes with a great collection of backline, including synths, keyboards, guitars, amps and effects making it the perfect location to write a new record.
