Why did they choose an Orangery?
Mary said: “With the English weather being as it is, it’s great having this when friends are round, as we can come inside when it rains, and still feel as though we are outside.
“There isn’t space in the kitchen or sitting room to have a dinner party, so I wanted a room I can have dinner parties in. It is really lovely in there in the evening, you can see the stars and the moon through the sky light, and when I have dinner parties I light candles on the table and it’s lovely.
“I’m glad I had full-length windows as it really does feel like I’m in the garden when I am sat inside.”
Mary added: “It is wonderful in the winter because of the solid roof. I can use it all year.”
