Retreat Recording Studios is a high end writing and recording studio located in Ovingdean just half a mile from the sea and 10 minutes drive from the centre of Brighton.
The Retreat is an escape from the hustle and bustle where bands and musicians can focus on creativity.

The studio consists of two live rooms, one full height room that is great for recording drums and a second live room which is located under the mezzanine control room, and which houses an exceptional sounding Yamaha C6 Grand Piano, a Chappell upright piano and a selection of vintage keyboards.
