Swallow Raven 8 x 8 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.
Offering double door access, the Raven 8ft x 8ft Wide Greenhouse, is part of a highly popular range suitable for wheelbarrows and similar large garden equipment.
Uniquely for a greenhouse, Swallow craftsmen use ThermoWood® to build the frame. This is heat treated timber that has a minimal amount of moisture, so preventing shrinkage, expansion, warping and decay. Preservatives are therefore not required.
The end result is a traditional greenhouse constructed with a contemporary material that is very strong, durable and with an extended lifespan.
There are two opening roof vents that create ideal growing conditions within the greenhouse and very useful staging along one side comes as standard. Toughened glass lets in plenty of light and is sealed with high-quality silicone.
In addition to standard features, options include a Combination Shed to greatly increase storage and working space. Plants love rainwater, so you can also fit a gutter and downpipe to enable recycling.
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 and/or Oiled frames, and 10 weeks for painted frames.
Note: Some delivery locations such as Scotland, Devon, and Cornwall will naturally 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 may be 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 charge may apply.
A suitable, flat, and level base must be prepared prior to the delivery and installation - please ensure that this is pre-prepared prior to the arrival of your greenhouse and the installation team.
