The facility houses around 190 male offenders aged between 15 and 18.

The “lounge” amenities include a DVD player, six guitars – electric and acoustic – and a wall with a trendy triangle pattern.

A source said: “That’s a far cry from the old jails you could get.

“The hope is that by treating inmates better, they stay on track.”

Many are jailed for violent crimes and drug offenses, but they may not feel too disadvantaged.

The lounge is in a part of the prison reserved for the best behaved lags.

It accommodates up to 17 people in individual rooms along with this common room.

HM prison inspectors said the club room was “bright and comfortable”.

Cookham Wood was known to be the home of Moors murderer Myra Hindley when it served as a women’s prison.

Serial killer Hindley and her lover Ian Brady murdered five children between the ages of 10 and 17 in the 1960s.

The prison was converted into a prison for young male offenders in 2007.

It is hoped that the Scandinavian-inspired pen will support prisoner reform.

A Prison Service spokesman said, “Incentive programs promote rehabilitation, reduce crime and protect the public.”
