Product Description + Pricing
We take every care in the preparation of the content of this web site, in particular to ensure that prices quoted are correct at time of publishing and all products have been fairly described. However, please note the following:
- Colour and appearance on the web site will vary according to the resolution and the screen type of your computer. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that the appearance or colours of the products shown on the site exactly reproduce the appearance or colours of the products themselves.
- Where products are made from natural materials such as wood, grain and colour is likely to vary from the images on the website, as grain and colour are determined by the specific natural material used in each specific product
- Where products are handcrafted, there are likely to be slight variations in final finish
- The weights, dimensions and capacities given are approximate only.
- The price you pay is the price displayed on our web site at the time we receive your order, and will be clearly stated on your order confirmation, with the following exception: if we discover an error in the price of goods you have ordered, we will inform you as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price, or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you we will treat the order as cancelled, and will give you a full refund.

Order Cancellation + Returns
Changing your mind
For orders for stock items, if you wish to change or cancel your order, please contact us immediately and we will try to stop delivery. However, if delivery has already taken place, you need to inform us of your cancellation/wish to exchange within 14 calendar days of receipt of the goods. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to advise of your decision to cancel, giving us your order reference number and date, and date of receipt, your name and phone number and what you wish to return to us. The easiest way to do this is to reply to our email confirming your order as this email contains a Cancellation Form.
Please retain and use the original packaging in case of return delivery. Please do not return goods without notifying us. This enables us to advise you on the best method of packing to avoid transit damage, and also to confirm the return address and details.
Please return the goods to us within 14 days of cancellation. We advise you to obtain proof of postage or courier collection of the return.
Any refund due or agreed exchange of goods, will be processed without undue delay and in any event no later than 14 days after we receive back the original goods or no later than 14 days after you have given us proof of return.
Before any refund is given we will inspect the returned goods to ensure that you have taken good care of them, including repacking them carefully before return. Taking due care can include, for example, not using the goods, or damaging their retail packaging beyond what is required to establish their nature, characteristic and function, as might be reasonably allowed in a High St shop. Where we consider that due care has not been taken, then we reserve the right to make a deduction for diminished value from any refund due.
Please note that refunds will not include any enhanced delivery charges incurred when your order was first sent to you or any costs of return incurred by you.
If you do not use postal services to return items, courier charges should be between £6 – £25 incl. transit cover, for non palletised goods, depending on the weight and bulk of your order. Courier charges for heavy goods requiring palletisation, such as large, multi-item purchases vary between £50 – £100. All orders or returns that include heavy, parasol bases will need to be palletised. Please call if you would like a specific quote before you order. If we arrange collection, we will quote you on the costs before proceeding. The costs of collection will be treated as your costs of return and will be deducted from the price you first paid when calculating the refund you are due. Normal delivery terms (see above) apply to goods sent out in exchange.
The right to cancel within 14 calendar days does NOT apply to orders delivered outside the EU or to trade orders (orders invoiced to businesses rather than the general public) or goods made to the customer’s specification.
Please also note that refunds cannot be given on Gift Vouchers.
A problem with the goods
If you are cancelling your order because of a problem with the goods, we apologise for the problem. Please let us know straight away what is the nature of the problem and keep all original packaging. We will advise you on the correct return address and agree with you the method of return. We will send you a replacement, or refund damaged goods in full, including any UK delivery charges incurred. Any replacement goods will be sent to you at a UK address free of charge.
Please note that if goods have been delivered outside the UK, the return of goods and the shipping of any replacement goods will be at your cost.
PLEASE NOTE: On non stock items that have been specially made for a customer, please let us know straightaway if there has been transit damage or there are any other problems with the goods.
