Exchanges, Returns & Refunds

Products purchased from our online store are securely packaged to ensure that they reach you in perfect condition. Occasionally, things may happen outside of our control; if your products arrive damaged, in poor condition, or are faulty in some other way, you must notify us as soon as possible, and definitely within 14 days.

If the product is damaged or you believe it to be faulty, please provide full details of the problem, with accompanying photographs if possible. We will investigate the problem and, if we agree that the product is damaged, faulty or not as described, we will replace the item or refund the cost to the buyer via the same  method used to make payment. After 30 days, we will replace a faulty product in accordance with the terms of the Consumer Rights Act 2015.

If you wish to return an unwanted item, you must inform us within 14 days of purchase. The items must be unused and in their original condition (including all labels, seals and tags intact).

Item(s) can be returned to our store in Truro, or you must contact us to arrange for the package to be collected. If the return is not made to the store in Truro, it must be repackaged using the original outer packaging if possible or packaging of equivalent quality.

POSTAGE/CARRIAGE/PACKAGING COSTS WILL NOT BE REFUNDED and the package must reach us in its original condition.

Where an unwanted product has been sold as a composite product made up of several individual items, e.g. a gift box, only the whole product can be returned. This does not apply to faulty or damaged items.

Refunds can only be made to the buyer using the original payment method and proof of purchase is required.

If you are only returning some of the items supplied, we will only refund the cost of those items.

If products are returned outside our returns policy or if no proof of purchase can be provided, we will be unable to process a refund.
