Delivery & Other Info
Delivery is to England, Wales and Scotland (exc Islands and Highlands):
Orders under £15 exc carriage - £5.00
Orders over £15 exc carriage - £7.50
The delivery charge covers delivery to one address only, if there are multiple addresses please place separate orders or telephone us. Delivery can be a work address but will usually be delivered to the reception area of Companies.
It is best if there is someone to receive the goods and to sign for them, as we are delivering perishable products. But if this is not possible, please leave any alternate instructions in the Comments Box – eg a dry place where it can safely be left for a short time. However if a parcel is left without obtaining a signature this is at your own risk.
Please take care to provide us with the correct delivery details:
House Number – Please inform us of the house number if possible and not just the name of the house.
Postcode – Please state the full postcode, which can be found at www.royalmail.com.
Directions/Specific Instructions – if the address is hard to find please give us some more information to help.
Telephone Number – Please include daytime and mobile numbers if possible. This will only be used in the case of the driver being unable to find the correct address.
We use a national next day courier service and send cheese to arrive Tuesday – Friday. But please bear in mind that the stated delivery time is a guide only and not a guarantee as there can very occasionally be problems that are out of our control (bad weather, vehicle breakdown etc) or during very busy periods such as Christmas week, when the delivery times may be extended.
Please note that we need 48 hours notice for delivery, and you can choose your preferred delivery day during checkout. We will send an email on the day your order is despatched.
As we are farmhouse artisan cheesemakers rather than factories there may be some occasions when a cheese is not available. If this happens we will try and contact you to arrange an alternative by the email address given, or if we cannot do so before despatch, we will make an intelligent choice for substitute.
We reserve the right to cancel an order without liability if necessary.
As all of our cheeses are handmade and cut to order by hand, the individual sizes and exact shapes will vary slightly.
We have given approximate weights, but if one piece is a little under weight we’ll try to make up for it on another.
All prices are listed in GBP, and some may include VAT, which is displayed and charged at the current rate. Payment is taken as the order is placed.
Payment may be made online by credit/debit card using our secure-payment gateway operated by Paypal. This ensures that all your information is protected and encrypted and you will be directed to the payment gateway for payment to be made. We do not have access to any of this information.

Cancellation and Returns
If you wish to cancel an order please contact us by email or telephone. As we try to despatch orders within 24-48 hours, it may already be on its way and so may not be possible to cancel. We reserve the right not to accept any order.
