On our recent family trip to Wales and England, we were struck by how many conservatories we saw on homes. Whether cottages or estates, the size of the home or the neighborhood did not matter, most homes in the countryside seemed to have one. We were fortunate to have afternoon tea in several homes and it was served in the conservatory at each home. They really are lovely, filled with orchids, house plants, comfortable seating and antiques. Enjoy these images from Vale Garden Houses, a maker of quality conservatories and orangeries in Lincolnshire, England.
