A Victorian style greenhouse for the 21st century


Mr Andy Atkinson


Griffin Glasshouses is a family enterprise with high standards and provides outstanding value and quality.

In Andy Atkinson’s garden in Dunsford, Devon sits a beautifully constructed Griffin Glasshouses greenhouse. It’s bespoke in design and boasts:

  •  Traditional Victorian style architectural features
  • Dimensions of 11.5m x 3.4m
  • Minimum maintenance requirements
  • Beautiful front roof
  • Side panels

Andy can remove these panels in summer, depending on his needs. 

Andy uses the Victorian greenhouse for growing exotic and everyday fruits. It also provides a place to relax and enjoy a cup of tea.

“ I was involved in the design of the greenhouse which makes it very personal, I simply love it.” says proud owner, Andy. Also, “it is both practical and attractive in design, has a robust construction and most importantly is easy to maintain.’

Griffin glazing systems cater for various roof pitches and, as toughened glass is made to measure, we can accommodate a number of glass widths to suit various designs. Today, manufacturers provide glass in single sheets of 4mm and toughened safety glass up to 3m in length. This ensures stronger and better quality than the 3mm horticultural glass traditionally used. It is very rarely necessary to join glass these days, but if needed, you can use butting strips that sit between two panes of glass. This ensures a perfect joint. Algae doesn’t form between these strips and we can colour match the strips to the greenhouse to ensure a perfect finish.
