Main studio

Our generous main studio is 1350 sq ft and is an adaptable and versatile space with complete black-out and three-phase electricity supply. Drive-in is possible through our 12 ft x 12 ft shutters. The infinity cove is 28 ft x 14 ft and can be painted in any colour.



Our second studio is a comfortable, self-contained space that can be utilised in complete exclusion to the rest of the complex, with its own separate access and kitchen. Measuring  450 square feet, it is ideal for portraiture, time lapse and macro work.

Lighting and grip


A huge selection of lighting is available including LED, HMI, fluorescent and tungsten, along with some commonly used grip equipment such as sliders, jibs, tracks, and moco systems. Standard grip such as lighting and C stands, magic arms, Big Bens, and scaffolding is included in the studio hire fee.

Please feel free to contact us for our full list of equipment.


A fully furnished kitchen and dining space comes with the hire of our main studio and is stocked daily with tea, coffee, soft drinks, snacks and fruit. It doubles as a digital workspace and social area with a comfy sofa, television and dining table.

Kitchen and green room


Farm Studios' establishment in 2001 arose from a background in natural history and science documentaries which has meant a strong foundation in the trickier, technical aspects of film making. Over the years, and to this day, we regularly help with techniques such as high speed, time lapse, stop motion, CSO, virtural/unreal engine production, macro, motion control, 3D and VFX. We even have our own in-house 6-axis robotic arm for those really funky shots!

The fully planted garden area is a great space to sit and relax. It has a lovely lunch time sun trap and backs on to both our main studio and second studio with beautiful views over the surrounding farmland.
