What’s in a Westbury?
If you‘re thinking of adding a beautiful Orangery to your home, then here are just a few reasons why Westbury is a cut above the rest:
Right from the point that you decide that you want a Westbury, our priority is to give you the very best build experience we can. We will guide you through the initial decision-making stages with sound, honest advice, right through to the glass clean at the end of the build. So, if you‘re thinking of adding a beautiful Orangery to your home, then here are just a few reasons why Westbury is a cut above the rest:
We have over 25 years experience building bespoke orangeries, conservatories and garden rooms across the whole of the UK. Our projects have ranged from cottages to town houses, country homes to commercial buildings – so we really have encountered every sort of project. It’s our architecture-led approach that enables us to design an extension which will seamlessly fit with your home.
Our glazed extensions are built to last. The materials we use are hard wearing; we store our timber outside to ensure it reaches optimum moisture levels, creating a weathered, stable timber to work with, meaning it will last and stay looking beautiful. We exceed minimum regulation standards for our insulations, windows, doors and glazing, ensuring that they have the highest integrity and will continue to perform to a high standard throughout their life.
3. Planning permission
Our experienced staff in the planning department will handle this on your behalf, obtaining the planning permission approval if it is required. Due to our many years’ experience, we have built very good relationships with planning and listed buildings officers which means that our applications are very rarely turned down. In addition, if your house is listed or in a conservation area, we will obtain the extra consents needed. From start to finish we will advise and keep you well informed whilst dealing with all the paperwork for you.
4. Dedicated team
In-house we have a comprehensive team that can take care of your project from initial consultation to completion. The architectural designers and CAD experts will carry out the design process, and your dedicated project manager, Sally, and on-site master builder, Andy, will lead the build project and put your mind at ease. To carry out the build, we work with experienced bricklayers, carpenters, plasterers, electricians and decorators who are well known to Westbury. We are always on hand to discuss any plans or queries you may have about your project, so please don’t hesitate to ask.
5. Considered, comprehensive service
We handle the whole project, including initial design, planning, construction, heating, lighting, flooring, and can help with decorating ideas through to the final fabric and furnishing. At design stage, we are focused on creating something which will be the best fit for you and your home. At build stage, we start work early – 7.30am. If for any reason this is delayed, you will be informed. We also supply a portaloo on every site so that you won’t have workmen using your facilities. We will always leave the site in a tidy manner at the end of the day; we understand that this is your home, and need work to be as unintrusive as possible.
Because of the importance we place on these elements, we are often asked to return to carry out aftercare work, such as clean the glass, or to come back several years later to redecorate.
6. Made in Britain
We use British products wherever possible, and ensure that we do all we can to reduce our carbon footprint in the manufacturing process by using sustainable sources of wood and utilising any wastage by using it for heating the factory.
7. Workshop tour
Our offices are based in Essex, and we welcome anyone who wishes to come see the showroom and our handmade Orangeries being crafted in our adjoining factory.

50% of our business comes from personal recommendation. Here’s what just one of our happy customers has to say about their new orangery:
“I want to express how happy we are with our new orangery, it has surpassed our expectations and we have had so much pleasure from it.
Working with Westbury has been a fantastic experience, everyone from the ground works team all the way through to the decorators have been a pleasure to deal with.
Andy and Sally have been fantastic at bringing everything together. Having done many building projects before we were dreading the process but I think we actually enjoyed it.”
