We are always sorry to hear that you want to return your product(s).

You must cancel within 14 days from the day on which you acquire physical possession of the product(s) or, in the case of an order for multiple products, the last product delivered.
We only accept returns of goods that are in brand new condition, with any product tags or labelling attached, and the original packaging. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer exchanges unless your product(s) are found to be faulty.
Please include the original packing slip with the RN you receive from our team on it and send your returns to:
Unit 3 Sunnyside Farm
Please note that you are responsible for return shipping costs, unless your product(s) do not meet the description(s) given or are found to be faulty (see Faulty Products). When returning goods please make sure you use a carrier that offers tracking and insurance as we cannot be held responsible for any returned packages lost in transit.
Once we receive your return, and providing the product(s) are in order, we will issue a refund for the product value including the costs of delivery (except for the supplementary costs arising if you chose a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us) to your original form of payment. Please note that it may take a couple of business days for this refund to appear on your account statement.
9.2 Faulty Products
If you are wishing to return a faulty product (warranty issue) please follow the standard returns procedure above, obtaining an RN. Please use your most economic postal service and we will reimburse your reasonable postage costs unless the fault is found to be due to accident, neglect or misuse.
Please note that we will return faulty goods to our suppliers and therefore any refunds or replacements may take up to 10 working days to process.
9.3 International Returns
Our standard Returns procedure applies but to help us deal with your return to us quickly and efficiently you must mark all packages as “RETURNED GOODS – FAILED SALE”. This must be clearly marked on the customs information document on the outside of the packaging. Failure to do so may result in the goods being refused at customs in the UK and so being returned to the sender.
10.1 Your order will be fulfilled by the estimated delivery date set out in the Dispatch Confirmation, unless there is an Event Outside Our Control. If we are unable to meet the estimated delivery date because of an Event Outside Our Control, we will contact you with a revised estimated delivery date.

12. PRICE OF PRODUCTS AND DELIVERY CHARGES
12.1 The prices of the Products will be as quoted on our site from time to time. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of Products are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. However if we discover an error in the price of Product(s) you ordered, please see clause 12.5 for what happens in this event.
12.2 Prices for our Products may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order which we have confirmed with a Dispatch Confirmation.
12.2 The price of a Product includes VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Products in full before the change in VAT takes effect.
12.3 The price of a Product does not include delivery charges. Our delivery charges are as set out above and are applied at the checkout.
Our site contains a large number of Products. It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the Products on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that:
12.3.1 where the Product’s correct price is less than the price stated on our site, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Products to you. However, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price; and
12.3.2 if the Product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will contact you as soon as possible to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Product at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing.
13. HOW TO PAY
13.1 You can only pay for Products using a debit card or credit card. We accept the cards listed on our site from time to time.

15. OUR WARRANTY FOR THE PRODUCTS
15.1 For Products which do not have a manufacturer’s guarantee, we provide a warranty that on delivery and for a period of 12 months from delivery, the Products shall be free from material defects. However, this warranty does not apply in the circumstances described in clause 15.2.

20. OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS
20.1 We may transfer our rights and obligations under a Contract to another organisation, but this will not affect your rights or our obligations under these Terms. We will always notify you in writing or by posting on this webpage if this happens.
20.2 You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these Terms to another person if we agree in writing. However if you are a consumer and you have purchased a Product as a gift, you may transfer the benefit of our warranty in clause 15 to the recipient of the gift without needing to ask our consent.
20.3 This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms, whether under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties Act) 1999 or otherwise. However, if you are a consumer, the recipient of your gift of a Product will have the benefit of our warranty at clause 15, but we and you will not need their consent to cancel or make any changes to these Terms.
20.4 Each of the paragraphs of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
20.5 If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.
20.6 If you are a consumer, please note that these Terms are governed by English law. This means a Contract for the purchase of Products through our site and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it will be governed by English law. You and we both agree to that the courts of England and Wales will have non-exclusive jurisdiction. However, if you are a resident of Northern Ireland you may also bring proceedings in Northern Ireland, and if you are a resident of Scotland, you may also bring proceedings in Scotland.
20.7 If you are a business, a Contract and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims) shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the law of England and Wales.
20.8 If you are a business, we both irrevocably agree that the courts of England and Wales shall have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with a Contract or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims).
