We build bespoke traditional and modern Oak Conservatories and Orangeries using naturally seasoned oak
At Richmond Oak, we use properly seasoned oak, which has been stacked, allowing air flow all around each individually oak board, to ensure that when it is used in the construction of your conservatory, it will have the correct moisture content to minimise any movement. Not only that, we engineer the oak by gluing together boards which are typically 20-30mm thick, alternating the grain of each board. Not only does this make the finished structure more stable, but it is also up to 25% stronger and enables much longer rafters and sections than could be obtained from non-engineered sections.
Whether you are looking for an Oak Conservatory or orangery for your home or business, we offer valuable advice gained through creating numerous bespoke conservatory designs and will turn your vision of a conservatory into reality.

My first contact with Richmond Oak was by the internet where I saw that a Guide to Conservatory design and advice was available. I sent for this and found it excellent for my purpose. I was not looking for a traditional house extension but a free standing conservatory utilizing an old wall in my garden.
From this guide I learnt about the different types of glass that could be installed and saw that Richmond knew what they were talking about. I decided at once that they would be my supplier.
Having given outline dimensions I received a large number of CAD drawings with internal and external views that allowed me to “see” the conservatory. Some significant changes were made not least altering the location by 90 degrees to face south. I again received revised CAD drawings.
The dimensions of the completed building are 8 metres by 3.1 metres so it is large but a wonderful addition to the house providing many felicitous comments from visitors. The automatic opening roof lights and under floor heating with high performance glass make it comfortable at all times.
I live in the most northerly point of England . Service was excellent in Berwick upon Tweed. I would certainly recommend Richmond Oak to others; My overall experience was good in every detail. I was fortunate to alight on Richmond Oak, there are many other suppliers out there. Go for the best.
Dr. David King – Berwick-on-Tweed, Northumberland
The conservatory looks great and can’t be faulted. The guys expertise has shone through in the quality of the installation.
Already had 2 interested neighbours... will try and introduce them to you.
Thank you very much for all the hard work and dedication that has gone into creating our beautiful new orangery.
You have captured the design I had imagined perfectly, and surpassed my expectations with it’s completion.
The natural oak is truly breathtaking and really gives the room a wow factor. The whole team were extremely professional, a pleasure to have on the premises and very conscientious about their work.
I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone thinking of adding a conservatory or orangery to their home.
We are already enjoying our tranquil heaven away from the children, and it’s a fabulous room for entertaining, a true asset to our home.
Paul, David was, as you promised, a most careful installer, and we too are very pleased indeed with the result.
Many thanks for an excellent job (your surveyor must also be worth his weight in oak! – it seems a perfect fit)
Thank you for all the advice along the way, the final result is truly fantastic.
If you are passing our way in some weeks to come please feel free to see if we are around so you can come and see it for yourself.
Next week we will be laying the new Oak flooring.
