Orangery in Truro, St Mawes and Mid Cornwall - Philip Whear Windows & Conservatories are

celebrating the Summer by offering all Orangeries purchased before the end of

September £250 towards citrus trees and pots (Click here for more details). Orangeries are ideal for Cornwall

and the Cornish environment because they offer a space to experience the

outdoors without having to go out in the weather!

The history of the Orangery is intrinsically linked to the migration of the

sweet orange from its probable origins in Asia, over mainland Europe and eventually

reaching British shores in the Middle Ages.

The earliest Orangery in the UK dates back to about 1580, built for Sir

Francis Carew at his home in Surrey, with perhaps the most famous of all

Orangeries being at Kensington Palace (built 1704-5), and Kew (built 1761).

Unfortunately there is little information regarding when Orangeries first

appeared in Cornwall, but they are suited to the Cornish environment, and

modern Orangeries offer the perfect combination of extended outdoor living and

the strucutral insulation and practicality of an extension.

The Orangery faced a decline in the 19th and 20th Century, but are now

facing something of a revival because they offer an elegant and comfortable

solution to adding year round living space and also being one of the few home

improvements which adds value to your home, when done well, and in a considered

and thoughtful design that compliments an existing property.

If you have been thinking about extending your home or adding a

Conservatory, do think about an Orangery. They can be manufactured in the

traditional hardwood, and the developments of uPVC (or PVCu) means that it is

now possible to have an authentic Orangery constructed in a material that is

more durable and has lower maintenance obligations than wood.

Philip Whear Windows and Conservatories specialise in both hardwood timber

and uPVC, and our Design Consultants are highly trained and pride themselves on

their ability to transform your ideas into reality and offer a no obligation

quote with absolutely no pressure selling. We manufacture all our products in

Redruth, Cornwall and are part of the Cornwall Council Approved Origin Scheme.

So if you are in Truro, St Mawes or any part of Mid Cornwall and

would like to recieve a no obligation quote please do not hesitate to contact
