Stunning Orangery in Doncaster, South Yorkshire

Pamela and Stephen Horner, from Barnby Dun, in Doncaster, were thrileld with their orangery, which was built by EYG using their existing conservatory base.

Their previous conservatory was "unloved" and cold, but the couple said they now have a room in which they relax watching TV, and for Pamela to use for her favourite hobby, crafting.

We are so thrileld they are happy with their new orangery and are getitng full use of this space once more.


Why did they choose EYG?

  • Old conservatory was cold, leaking and beyond repair
  • Wanted new extension-style room to replace it
  • Keen to remove long windows and replace with insulated walls
  • Eager to create a room which could be used all year
  • Wanted bifold doors to merge inside and outside of home

What did we do?

When we arrived to install this orangery in Doncaster there was much more to it than meets the eye. Although the existing conservatory base was reused, two small walls had to be removed to alter the existing layout and incorporate a set of four-panel bifold doors into the new design.

Two full-length windows also had to be removed and replaced with insulated brick walls so the new orangery that was replacing the conservatory would feel modern and much more spacious. 

“The room always had a lovely aspect looking out onto the garden, but the previous space was unloved and not used very much because it was cold and in a state of poor repair," explained Pamela, of Mallard Avenue in Barnby Dun, a village near Doncaster.

"Now it’s a multi-use room where I do my crafts and sewing or just watch TV. We also use it as our dining room and it’s a really light and pleasant space.

“I’d recommend EYG to anyone. We got three quotes and they were not the cheapest, but they had the products we wanted - such as the Hybrid roof - and the customer service we received was superb.”

How long did it take?

  • It took our experienced team just over a fortnight to modernise and update this lovely family home in Barnby Dun.
  • This included all the interior works such as new electrics and plastering so that a new painted finish could be applied.
  • “We wanted to create a stylish and modern orangery which would transform our home and that’s exactly what has happened,” said homeowner Pamela.
