We are here to help. We hope our products meet your expectations, but if you do need to return please read the following information & if you need more advice, please contact us. Always try to contact us before before posting your return as we may be able to offer cost saving, practical advice.

In general, our refund and returns policy lasts 30 days. If 30 days have passed since your purchase, we can no longer offer a refund or exchange.

To be eligible for a return, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it.

To complete your return, we require a receipt or proof of purchase.

There are certain situations where full refunds cannot be granted, and partial refunds are offered instead. These situations include, but are not limited to:

  • Any items not returned in their original condition, are damaged or have missing parts 
  • Any item that is returned more than 30 days after delivery 
  • Return postage costs have not been covered by the buyer


Once your return is received and inspected, you will receive an email to notify you that we have received your return. We will also notify you of the status of your refund.

If a refund is the outcome, then your refund will be processed, and a credit will automatically be applied to your  original payment method within 14 days. 

Late or missing refunds

If you are concerned that you haven’t received a refund in time, please double check the correct account again before contacting us. At the moment, all our website transactions are run through Paypal. The transaction may show as related to our company name: Cottingley Furnishers Ltd t/a Handle & Home. 

If there is still doubt after 14 days, please send us an email or complete our contact form, with the details and we will be able to check on the refund status at our end. 

Sale items

Only regular priced items may be refunded. Sale items cannot be exchanged or refunded. This does not affect your statutory rights.


We replace items if they are defective or damaged in transit. Please notify us of any damages upon receipt of the item, or within a maximum of 48 hours thereafter. This will give us the best chance to resolve the issue in a timely fashion. We will likely need photos of the damage/defect in order to process the exchange or refund. Please never dispose of an item or any damaged packaging before contacting us.
