The goods covered by these terms and conditions are those listed on our Website. Goods are subject to availability.

We make all reasonable efforts to ensure that all descriptions and graphical representations (i.e. photographs) of goods available from us correspond to the actual Products sold. However:

images of goods are for illustrative purposes only and there may be slight variations in colour between the image of the good and the actual Product sold due to differences in computer displays and lighting conditions; and
images and/or descriptions of packaging are for illustrative purposes only and the actual packaging may vary.
We may from time to time withdraw certain goods from sale.  If any Products purchased by you are likely to be affected by such withdrawal, we will inform you in writing in advance.  You will be refunded in full for any Products paid for that you will not receive due to their withdrawal.  Refunds will be made within 14 calendar days of our notice in writing to you, using the same payment method that you used when ordering the Products. 

Price and Payment

Payment for Products and related delivery charges must always be made in advance.

All prices are stated in pounds sterling and the price is as stated at the time of placing the order with us. 

The amount payable is the price of the Product plus the cost of packaging and delivery as stated. 

We are not responsible for any customs and taxes applied to your order. All fees imposed during or after shipping (such as tariffs and taxes) are your sole responsibility.


For standard Products, we use commercially reasonable endeavours to ship them to you within 2 – 4 days of purchase. For custom-made Products, we use commercially reasonable endeavours to ship them to you within 14 days of purchase. 

Should there be any delays to shipping, such as due to a high volume of orders, this will be communicated to you. There may be occasions where we are away for a short break and cannot ship Products to you within our normal timescales. You will be notified via a banner on our Website of the earliest anticipated shipping date so you can decide whether to place your Order.

We will ship the Product(s) using the method specified in your order. You will receive a confirmation email once your order has shipped, which will include your tracking number(s), where applicable.

We have no control or influence over the time taken between shipping and delivery and this will depend on the courier used. Please note that delivery times will vary depending on the time of year and we cannot guarantee that you will not experience COVID-19 related delays. We accept no liability whatsoever on behalf of the courier for late or delayed delivery.

In the event that your Product(s) have been damaged in transit to you, you must contact us by email within a reasonable time of successful delivery to hello@thecandlebothy.co.uk. When you email us, please provide clear photographs to show the extent of the damage, along with a full description. We will endeavour to respond as soon as reasonably practicable to discuss possible delivery of  replacement Product(s) at our expense, if we deem you are eligible. Please note that we cannot process claims for replacement Product(s) when an unreasonable time has elapsed from successful delivery to your damage report as we cannot be certain that the damage was not caused by you.

We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of the Product(s) is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any Product(s) you have paid for but not received.



We hope that you are delighted with your order. If for some reason you are not, please get in touch with us by emailing hello@thecandlebothy.co.uk

You must ensure that the returned Product(s) are properly sealed and packaged so as to prevent any damage during transit.
