At Home in the Dales

05 Jan 17

Renowned for its graceful glazed buildings, The Caulfield Company is one of Britain’s leading conservatory designers and makers, with an exceptional reputation for working on heritage projects and many other listed and period buildings.  

Their bespoke designs are built by hand, in the traditional way, in the company’s own joinery workshops in Yorkshire, using durable hardwoods designed to stand the test of time. The Caulfield Company is also especially skilled in ‘invisibly’ incorporating double glazing into period conservatory designs, using the slim glazing bars which conservation departments require. 

This traditional conservatory was built for a village house in the Yorkshire Dales. Designed and situated to make the most of the classic walled garden, it is handmade from solid Sapele hardwood with maintenance-free aluminium cappings. Painted a soft green, it blends sympathetically with the lush garden surroundings and the old stone of the house.

Although traditional in concept, this conservatory has many modern advantages including underfloor heating and electrically operated, thermostatically controlled roof vents that open and close automatically for perfect temperature control.
