Osea Island is the UK's leading retreat for the music industry. A private island in the stunning Blackwater Estuary, it offers musicians, producers and writers a creative location that can be used whichever way they choose. In a vast Edwardian mansion (that provides luxury client accommodation) is East Point Studios, a SSL mix and writing room. Osea is extra special for writers - spread across a small village are many cottages and apartments that writers hire to use as a creative base for their projects; one of the cottages is attached to the newly built Summerhouse Writing Studio. There are also several outbuildings used for rehearsals and an abundance of activities on the island for clients to enjoy.
