UK consumer return, cancellation & refund policy

Terms & conditions

If you're unhappy with your purchase, please let us know. Unless faulty, we'd like this to be within 14 days of purchase.

If you return your item and you'd like a refund you will need your receipt and order confirmation number. Ordinarily if you have your receipt and order confirmation number we'll refund you via a cheque.
It's important that any unwanted item, unless faulty, is returned in a re-saleable condition. We'd expect this to mean that you've kept all original packaging and that it's undamaged and unused.
If you return an entire order within the UK we'll refund any UK delivery charges you paid.
