An orangery is a room which is often labelled as a 'home extension' that can be used in the same way a conservatory. Orangeries offer homeowners the chance to extend their living space in style whilst offering styling and design that is different from your typical conservatory. Orangeries have become increasingly popular; they offer a great all year round living space full of natural light due to the glazed lantern installed in the flat roof. Our stunning orangery designs are an ideal extension to be used for multiple purposes such as; kitchens, dining rooms or sunrooms.
Internally the glazed lantern roof usually becomes the most stunning feature of the entire building. Create space for that extended Kitchen, Dining room or Sun lounge. Our Orangeries are bespoke and designed to your individual specification. We can have our fabricators create your dream space in your choice of material - Timber, uPVC or Aluminium. The external appearance of the orangery can be designed to suit both the customer's tastes and the local built environment. The range of colours, styles and configurations are limitless.
The Little Conservatory Company offers a free consultation to discuss designs, and can also produce a 3D CAD drawing to illustrate the design.
The use of roof lights and roof lanterns as a means of incorporating light into a dark room or space has been used for many years. Our roof lights (supplied by Atlas and Ultraframe) are available in contemporary style or elaborate in-period layout. They can be built to any size and specification the customer requires and offer a cost-effective way to brighten up any room. Please take a look at the brochures below for further details.
In most cases, planning permission is not necessary for Orangeries because adding one to your home is usually allowed under the new 'permitted development' rules (subject to certain conditions).
Terraced and semi-detached homes can make additions up to 6 metres without planning permission whilst detached houses can now add large structures up to 8 metres without permission as demonstrated. (The red shaded area on the diagram shows the old 4-metre limit, but this is now 8 metres (as of May 2019)).
Note: Should you wish to build a double story extension - you will require planning permission.

New windows just about complete and conservatory well on its way.
Very impressed by the standard of workmanship, communication and overall professionalism of The Little Conservatory Co. Highly recommended.
Paul was very helpful and informative. Work was started without any delays and finished to a high standard. Always kept me informed would highly recommend.
Can't fault Paul and the rest of The Little Conservatory Company at all. The staff helped with confusing jargon and I had my new bay windows fitted in a couple of hours since everything went so smoothly. What's even better is that they were the cheapest in town too. I will be using them again very very soon.
Paul and the guys did a great job on gutting and replacing our kitchen. During the project, Paul came up with lots of great ideas on how to get the best of our galley kitchen. Well organised and would def recommend. We used to hate going in the old kitchen but love the new one. Thank you!
Very friendly and reliable quick to come and do the job.
Paul was very thorough in doing his work, checking everything to make sure we got what we wanted and to avoid any confusion. Even during the build he would ask us before going ahead with anything that had alternatives. Very impressed, and would certainly use his services again.

Paul was great - he finished my conservatory and downstairs toilet on schedule and always was very clear about what he was doing and when. He consulted me throughout the building process to make sure I was happy. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Little Conservatory Company to anyone.
