Delivery and returns


Orders are usually posted within 48 hours using Royal Mail First Class delivery or Royal Mail Standard delivery depending on which service you request. Orders received Saturday or Sunday will be posted the following Monday.  If your order is going to be delayed you will be notified by email of the estimated delivery date.

Postage is calculated according to the value of your order and is based on Royal Mail's current postage rates. Postage costs are calculated at the checkout and you can see what they are before you pay.  We currently offer FREE postage for orders over £50.

Orders which are over 2kg in weight will be sent by courier.  We use a 48 hour tracked and signed for service but orders placed over the weekend will take slightly longer.

    When will my order arrive?

    UK delivery: 

    Orders sent by first class Royal Mail should reach you within 2-4 working days.

    Orders sent by standard Royal Mail should reach you within 4-6 working days.

    Please allow 7 days for unforeseen circumstances (such as bad weather). 

    What happens if I'm not in?

    If there is no-one available to sign for your parcel, Royal Mail will leave a card for you to pick it up from your nearest Post Office. 

    Europe/Worldwide Shipping

    Unfortunately we are not shipping outside of the UK due to ambiguous import charges for overseas customers and delays in parcels arriving safely due to Brexit/Covid.  When the situation improves we will reinstate shipping to Europe and the rest of the world.
