Double Hipped Conservatories:
Design and Installation with an Edwardian or Victorian Flair
Double hipped conservatories – also known sometimes as Reverse Hip with Box Gutter – were originally designed for bungalows or other height-restricted properties, but they are now popular with homeowners of all property types.
They have a pitch on both sides, rather than having a flat face connecting to the house wall, meaning that they can be installed on all home types.
A double hipped conservatory can be installed in Edwardian & Victorian styles.
Striking and elegant, double hipped conservatories are a great way to expand your living space without compromising on style. Suitable for all property types, including bungalows or other height restricted dwellings; this type of conservatory can be fitted in Edwardian or Victorian style.
With a pitch on both sides of the roof, this conservatory type can be built in a square or rectangular shape to maximise floor space and provide you with a large living area.
Conservatory Roof Options
The ultimate in performance glass, we install the best performance glazing you can get for your conservatory.
Our glass roof will enhance the colours in your garden without darkening the room.
GUARDIAN Warm Roof
For many people it’s the same issue, they love their conservatory, but it’s either too hot, too cold or too noisy. Most of the issues are down to one element, the roof.
With a stylish Guardian™ tiled roof you don’t just improve the appearance, you now have a fully insulated soundproofed roof.
This roof is suitable for new and or as a replacement roof for your existing conservatories.
These days, conservatories don't just have to be white! You can choose form a wide array of different colour finishes, including:
- Anthracite Grey
- Smooth Anthracite
- Golden Oak
- Chartwell Green
- Black Brown
- Irish Oak
- Simply White
Others are available - please just ask us!
Conservatory Frame Glass
We use Warm Edge glass for the frame glass in our conservatories - sourced from a locally based supplier.
Up to 80% of energy loss through a window occurs at its edge. Warm Edge products aim to minimise energy loss through your conservatory windows.
Comparatively, double glazed windows fitted with warm edge spacer have a warmer internal edge temperature by up to 65% which helps to improve the thermal efficiency of the window and reduce the risk of condensation.
While making a real contribution to the environment, this heat saving can help to reduce the heat consumption or air conditioning requirements of a home which lowers carbon emissions and saves money on fuel bills.
"We shopped around quite a few in the Plymouth and surrounding areas, Crownhill Conservatives were very competitively priced, great quality, no pushy salesman, friendly team where nothing was too much trouble...I would highly recommend absolutely loving our conservatory which is now my favourite room in our property"
Ann, Plymouth, Devon
"Steve B was so helpful and accommodating at every stage of the conservatory project, from the initial consultation and planning right through to the plumbing and plastering. We had quotes from two other bigger companies but wanted to keep the business local. Nothing has been too much trouble. Would definitely recommend them to anyone."
Jackie, Plymouth, Devon
"We are delighted with our "Guardian" replacement roof. Steve C. did an amazing job removing the old one and fitting the new. A tricky job, but expertly accomplished to our complete satisfaction. Our conservatory has been transformed. Competitively priced and promptly fitted. Would we employ Crownhill Conservatories again? "yes please"

"Steve and the team at Crownhill conservatories, have done a wonderful job fitting our conservatory onto the back of our house. From the initial visit for a quote, right up until the finishing touches of the build, all of the team were friendly, efficient and professional. They kept to their time scales and communicated well with us at all times. Their prices were really reasonable and the quality of everything was great! Would highly recommend them!"
Rachel, Saltash, Cornwall
"A really First Class Job At A Most Reasonable Price! We have just had a new conservatory installed by Crownhill Conservatories and are absolutely delighted with both their service and the end product. They were most professional in all aspects, from the initial survey process through to the final check and inspection. The fitting team were really efficient and polite, and did a fine job - we could not ask for more. You can certainly use Crownhill Conservatories with confidence."
