Terms and Conditions

(with effect from 1 November 2020)

These terms and conditions of sale set out the legal terms and conditions on which we sell the products listed on this website to you.
Please read these terms and conditions carefully before ordering any products. These terms will apply to any contract between us for the sale of products to you. You should print a copy of these terms and conditions or save them to your computer for future reference.

By placing your order with us you are agreeing with these "Terms and Conditions of Sale", and you are agreeing to be bound by these terms.

We may amend these terms from time to time and therefore every time you wish to order products, please check these terms to ensure that you understand the terms that will apply at that time. The terms and conditions that will apply will be those published on our website at the time you place your order.


You may only place an order and enter into a contract with us if you are legally capable of entering into binding contracts and you are at least 18 years old.

Please ensure that you check your order at each stage of placing your order. Once you have placed an order with us, we are unable to amend it.
After placing an order, you will receive an email from us (sent to the email address that you have provided when placing your order) acknowledging that we have received your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted by us. Acceptance of your order will only take place later and until then a contract between us will not have been created.

Confirmation that we have accepted your order will occur when we email you to advise that the product has been dispatched to you. Only at that time will there be a legally binding contract formed between us.

Where you have ordered more than one product the Contract which is formed between us following our email advising dispatch will relate only to those products whose dispatch we have confirmed to you. No contract will subsist between us with regard to any other items included in your order unless and until we advise you of their dispatch. Where we have sent you an email confirming dispatch in respect of part of your order, we nevertheless will not be obliged to supply any of the other products which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such products has been confirmed.

If we are unable to supply you with a product you have ordered, for example, if the product is out of stock or because of an error in the price on our website or inability to authorise your payment, we will inform you of this by email or telephone and we will not process your order. If you have already paid for the products, we will refund you the full amount as soon as possible.


As a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel a Contract with us under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013. Your right to cancel a Contract begins on the date you place your order and ends upon the earlier of the expiry of 24 hours from placing your order and your order being shipped. If you ordered multiple items in a single order and we ship those items in separate deliveries to you, the date of shipping shall be will be the date the last item is shipped. For orders cancelled after 24 hours but not yet shipped, we will offer a partial refund after charging a 15% cancellation fee.

To cancel a Contract, please notify us in writing during the specified time period. You may either email us at theshutteredshed@gmail.com or write to us at Customer Services, the Shuttered Shed, 10 Watergates, Colerne, Wiltshire SN14 8DP. Please include details of your order to help us identify it. We will send you an email to confirm we have received your notification of cancellation.

If you cancel your Contract, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the product and original delivery charges (except for the supplementary costs arising if you choose a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us) but you will not receive a refund of the cost of returning the product to us. We will usually refund any money due to you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase. It can take up to 14 days, after the product has been received by us, to you receiving your refund to your account.

If we have already dispatched the product before you decide to cancel your Contract, you must return it to us as soon as possible and, in any event, within 14 calendar days of cancellation to Customer Services, Douée, 10 Watergates, Colerne, Wiltshire SN14 8DP. If you return a product by post, you will need to pay the costs of returning the product to us and obtain proof of posting.

We will process your refund as soon as possible. If we have dispatched the product before you cancel the Contract, we will process your refund within 14 calendar days after the day on which we receive the product back. If we have not yet dispatched the product before you cancel the Contract, we will process your refund within 14 calendar days of your cancellation.

If you only cancel the Contract in respect of some but not all of the products in an order, you will not be entitled to a refund of the delivery charge as our delivery charges are charged at a flat rate per order and not by weight.

Products must be returned in their original condition. We may reduce any refund due to you to reflect any reduction in the value of the product due to how you have handled it.

The refund will be in sterling and in the case of purchase made from outside the UK may therefore not equate exactly to the amount you paid owing to fluctuations in exchange rates.

Please note the right of cancellation does not apply to any items sales items or any other items we have specified as non-returnable in the item information.


If your order comprises more than one item, we may ship them to you separately so that they may arrive on different days. Accordingly if your order is incomplete, please allow a little extra time before contacting us. You will not be charged extra for these additional deliveries.


The prices of the products will be as quoted at the time you place your order. However, please see below for what happens if we discover an error in the price of any product you order.

These prices are in sterling and include (where applicable) VAT at the prevailing rate but exclude delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount due.

We may change our prices at any time before we have entered into a contract with you.

It may be that, despite our best efforts, some of the products listed on the website are incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the product to you. If a product's correct price is higher than the price stated on our website, we will contact you to inform you of the error and give you the option of either continuing your purchase of the product at the correct price or cancelling your order. If we are unable to contact you using the details you provided during the order process, we will treat your order as having been cancelled and notify you in writing.

We are under no obligation to provide any product to you at an incorrect (lower) price if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.

Payment for all products must be made by a credit card or debit card which we recognise or using PayPal.

We require payment for products and any delivery charges in advance of delivery. Upon receiving your order we carry out a standard pre-authorisation check on your payment method (card or PayPal) to ensure there are sufficient funds to fulfil the transaction.


Please be aware that our products are individually made and as a consequence the colour of any two items may vary slightly. This is the nature of artisanal products and does not constitute defective products.


Nothing in these terms and conditions affects your legal rights in respect of products which are defective or not as described. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards Office.

We will usually process any refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 14 calendar days of the day we notified you via email that you were entitled to a refund for these products.

If it is the case that we notified you that you are entitled to a refund, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the product, the original delivery charges and the cost of returning the product to us. We will usually refund any money due to you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase.

The refund will be in sterling and in the case of purchase made from outside the UK may therefore not equate exactly to the amount you paid owing to fluctuations in exchange rates.
