When it came to designing an orangery extension to expand and enhance the dining facilities for the luxury Stoberry House & Garden, just outside Wells in Somerset, David Salisbury was the sensible choice – highlighting our widespread experience of designing and installing orangeries for both domestic and commercial properties.
Different types of building extensions could have been considered but with views like these, overlooking Wells Cathedral and with Glastonbury Tor set further back in the distance, a glazed extension such an orangery or conservatory was the obvious option.
David Salisbury’s longest-serving sales designer, Simon Martin, has widespread experience of designing orangeries for commercial projects so was a great choice for this project. His previous successful commercial projects include the boutique Old Rectory Hotel in Devon, the listed St Michael’s Manor Hotel in St Albans and our most recent prestigious commercial building at Clevedon Hall. Simon also designed our largest single order: the oak orangery for the locally well-known Brent House, which opened earlier this year.
Painted in ‘Stone’ from our own unique colour palette, this orangery combined a selection of casement windows around the perimeter with a set of French Doors to allow convenient access into the beautifully landscaped gardens. Double Gothic bars were added to the doors and central set of orangery windows to add to the traditional style.
In combination with the large overhead lantern roof, Stoberry House guests can now enjoy a wonderful airy and light-filled room, whether for breakfast or coffee any time of the day. Taking in the most breath-taking views, this is a bed & breakfast experience like no other and must be almost without equal in Somerset.
If you’re considering a visit to Wells or Bath or this part of Somerset in general, we thoroughly recommend a visit to this award-winning B&B. Book your stay here.
