About Us

Ok, so let's get personal... deciding on anything that goes into your home is a uniquely individual decision, and you'd like to know a little more about who you're going to be dealing with, right? Allow us to introduce ourselves...

We are a husband and wife team with two crazy beautiful children who live, eat and breath film and music (and all things gin related - but that's just the two of us though... not the kids). With a long-standing Saturday Night Movie Night, and a religious weekend Movie Matinee for the kids, we are lucky enough to enjoy the very best the world of home cinema has to offer, and we are truly blessed to also be able to call it our "job".

We like to think of ourselves as being a bit different to other home cinema companies out there. We are without question, experts within our field; we are passionate, and we are professional and devoted to our work, and we could make use of a dozen other ways to describe ourselves in order to differentiate us from other companies, but actually, our unique selling point - what really sets us apart from the rest, is quite simply, that we're us.

We believe we offer a unique experience, with our stunning demonstration facilities being ideally located for the Cotswolds and surrounding areas, nestled in the beautiful Warwickshire countryside. The most outstanding home cinema set-ups can be sympathetically installed into any space, within any property, ranging from contemporary new-builds, to English country houses, right through to picture perfect cottages and stately manors. The same can also be said for commercial buildings, such as offices, meeting rooms and conference facilities, through to boutique hotels, brasseries and restaurants, and our demonstration facilities prove just how successfully the most advanced technology can be seamlessly integrated into a beautiful family home, without being intrusive in anyway. During a visit to Cotswold Home Cinema you will be able to experience for yourself just how captivating and involving watching a film can really be, as well as how life-like music can sound when it's played through one of the world's best audio systems.

We strive to offer nothing but the very best, with personal service and first-rate hospitality being just as crucial as the actual design and installation process itself. With everything taken care of, starting with a great coffee when you arrive at our tranquil surroundings for uninterrupted listening, through to our bespoke proposal document and drawings, including 3D images that allow you to see how the finished design will look, and onto a flawless installation and the final handover, you can rest assured that your experience will be a pure pleasure from beginning to end.

So where did it all start? Having spent over ten years working as a network engineer, Jim started building a solid foundation for the work he does now, developing a knowledge base that translates perfectly into home cinema design and home automation installation. Having that expert technical knowledge together with sound building and construction skills, is an excellent grounding for the future of home cinema, with all modern systems becoming increasingly more reliant on solid infrastructure. More recently, he spent five years as a Custom Install Project Manager, overseeing some fabulous projects including dedicated home cinema rooms, multi-room home automation projects, specialist lighting commissions, commercial restaurant audio installations, boutique hotel media rooms with television installation and distribution, and five-star spa audio systems. Managing each project through every stage of the process - right from the initial meeting, through the planning and developing stage, and on to the actual install and final handover - has provided Jim with a wealth of experience that allows him to deliver exceptional results that go above and beyond expectations.

As for me, my background is a little more humble. Coming from a sales background within the hotel industry, hospitality and 5-star service throughout the whole process is my main focus. I want our customers to really enjoy the whole experience, right from the very beginning at that first point of contact through to when we handover at the very end.

Reluctant to continue having to work within the constraints and limitations of working for a large retail company, we made the decision to go it alone and create a company that allowed us the freedom to offer our customers the most superior solutions available, and so, we created Cotswold Home Cinema.

Our aim is to provide our customers with the most effortless and rewarding experience possible, and with our forces combined, we can offer you everything you could ask for from a home cinema design and installation company.

To start your journey, all you need do is simply get in touch - we take care of the rest, or for more information about the process, take a look at our Home Cinema page.
