Swallow Raven 8 x 12 ft ThermoWood Greenhouse
We are committed to Low Prices.
If you find any of our products on the price promise pages advertised, and in stock and immediately available, at any of our competitors we will endeavour to match the price.
The Raven 8ft x 12ft Greenhouse is built in the UK by craftsmen at Swallow. Double doors make entry into the greenhouse very easy, even if you are pushing a wheelbarrow.
Mixing traditional design with modern construction methods unique to their range of greenhouses, Swallow use ThermoWood® to build the frame. This is timber that has been heat-treated to eliminate almost all moisture and resin. As a result, shrinkage and expansion are minimal, as is warping and rot. In fact, preservatives need not be applied.
The exterior of the greenhouse is very durable, inside the growing environment is ideal for a wide range of plants. No less than four roof vents introduce a fresh flow of air, and staging is fitted along one side.
Light flows through the toughened glass and the glazing is sealed with high-quality silicone. There is a 20mm damp course and in addition, you have the choice of various optional extras, for example, a rainwater collection kit to aid recycling.
A Combination Shed is also a great option, adding working space and also a storage area.
Read up on our guide for the benefits of Thermwood® greenhouses.

Fast Free Delivery within Mainland England and Wales.
Inclusive delivery and installation are limited to mainland England, Wales and Scotland up to a maximum of 15 miles further North of Glasgow.
Unfortunately, Swallow greenhouses cannot be delivered and installed to areas of Scotland above 15 miles North of Glasgow, Scottish Highlands, Offshore Islands and Isles, Northern Ireland, or the Republic of Ireland.
Delivery will typically be made within 5 - 6 weeks for standard Thermowood, Oiled frames, and Painted greenhouses frames to the majority of locations.
*Note: Some delivery locations such as Scotland, Devon, and Cornwall, as well as Ilfracombe, Exeter and anything West off unfortunately currently have extended delivery timeframes due to the additional distance required for the delivery and for our installation team to travel. This can be up to an additional 6 weeks on top of the standard quoted lead times.
All Swallow greenhouses are crafted to order, so maybe extended during busy times of the year.
Bespoke Product Procedure
This product range is made to order on an order-by-order basis, therefore is exempt from our usual cancellation and returns policy. Any cancellations after your order has started production may not be able to be cancelled or may be subject to cancellation charges. Although a very rare occurrence, this does not affect any orders that arrive damaged or faulty, whereby our normal terms on receiving a faulty product will apply.
Vehicles We Use
Items will be delivered on larger lorries which can get to most places it's typically, a 7.5-ton lorry which is about the size of a dustbin lorry, this will depend on the item that is being delivered and should you have any concerns with restricted access to your property we ask you to contact us prior to placing an order.
Unloading Of Your Delivery
Back garden access is required from the front of the property, as due to the size of the product and the large sections that they are delivered in, the installation/delivery team are unable to carry these items inside your home as the sections are unlikely to pass through standard indoor door sizes. When the item is delivered on a pallet, the pallet and packaging are non-returnable. Goods can only be maneuvered on a flat and level surface (i.e. not a gravel driveway) by a pallet truck. If the installation/delivery team is unable to gain access to the installation area from the front of the property, they may not be able to complete the installation, and a cancellation or rebooking charge may apply.
A suitable, flat, and level base must be prepared prior to the arrangement of delivery and installation - please ensure that this is pre-prepared. The installation team will contact you approx 3 weeks in advance and will request a photo of the proposed installation area before being able to confirm a delivery and installation date. This is to ensure that the area is ready and suitable, ensuring successful installation on the day.

I knew the Swallow Raven greenhouse was going to be good when I ordered it, but now it has been delivered and erected I can say it is astonishing The look, feel and smell of the timber is nothing short of sublime. Everyone who sees it goes wow. Top marks to all involved!
Is this greenhouse fixed to the ground? If it is, how is it fixed?We Replied:
Dear Richard Thank you for your question. The majority of our Swallow greenhouses need to be fixed to the ground and this is mostly done by screwing through both the bottom rail and damp-proof barrier using 80mm concrete screws. The only time when we wouldn't fix one of these greenhouses into the ground is if it’s a potting shed or if you are using an eco-base or porcelain tiles as they can crack under pressure. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards GabyWednesday 16th, June, 2021
