How the contract is formed between you and us

After placing an order, through our website, over the phone, by facsimile, written or any other means, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have received your order.  Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a Product. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the Product has been dispatched or is ready for collection (the Dispatch Confirmation). The contract between us (Contract) will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch confirmation.

The Contract will relate only to those Products whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Products which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such Products has been confirmed in a separate Dispatch Confirmation.

These conditions shall govern the contract to the exclusion of any other terms and conditions subject to which any such quotation is accepted or purported to be accepted, or any such order is made or is purported to be made, by you.

If for any reason we are not able to supply the goods ordered by you then any sum paid by the you will be refunded or re-credited to your account and we will notify you at the address given by you in your order form and or via email. The refund will be made as soon as is possible and, in any event, within 10 days of the reason becoming apparent and we will not be obliged to offer any compensation for disappointment suffered.

Consumer Rights

These terms and conditions only apply if you are dealing with us as a consumer. If you wish to trade with us in the course of your business, please contact us by email at info@thecountryhome.co.uk
Where you are contracting as a consumer, you may cancel the Contract at any time within seven working days, beginning on the day after you received the Products. In this case, you will receive a refund of the price you paid for the Products in accordance with our refunds policy as listed below.

To cancel a Contract, you must inform us in writing, by post to The Country Home 1, Charnwood Grove, Hucknall, Nottingham NG15 6QL or by email to info@thecountryhome.co.uk.  You must also return the Product(s) to us straight away, in a new and unused condition and in the original packaging, and at your own cost and risk. You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the Products while they are in your possession.
Details of this statutory right, and an explanation of how to exercise it, are provided in the Dispatch Confirmation. This provision does not affect your statutory rights.

Consumer and Commercial/Trade clients - Please note that you will not have any right to cancel a Contract for the supply of any Products which are made specifically to your order, for example Products which we have manufactured to your specific size or painted or finished to your choice.

Prices and payment

Prices include VAT at the rate of 20% and exclude delivery charges unless otherwise stated. We reserve the right to alter prices at any time. It may be necessary to change prices either up or down, from time to time, including any alterations to the rate of VAT.

Our Website contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on our Website may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our despatch 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 normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.

We are under no obligation to provide the Product(s) to you at the incorrect (lower) price or if priced at £0, even after we have sent you a Despatch Confirmation/Receipt, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a miss-pricing.

Payment is due at the date of the order being placed. If it is not possible to collect payment promptly at this time a delay to the start of manufacture may occur. If you fail to make payment as required we may suspend delivery of the Products or any further Products ordered until payment is made in full.

In the event that a deposit is paid, payment must be made, in full, prior to the goods being released for delivery.

Payment may be made by cheque, BACS transfer, credit or debit card acceptable to us.

The products and product descriptions

Any typographical or clerical or other error or omission in any sales literature, quotation, price list, order confirmation, despatch confirmation, invoice or other document or information issued by us will be subject to correction if required, without any liability on the part of us.

The quantity and description of the Products will be as set out in our order confirmation

We may make any changes in the specification of the Products which do not materially affect their quality or performance required to conform with any applicable statutory requirements where the Products are supplied to our specification.

We take the utmost care to ensure that product information and colours are accurate. Due to the limitations of the photographic process, goods may not be exactly the same colour as shown.  Photographs are for illustrative purpose only, and may not exactly match the product itself, for example the colour of the product may vary with the settings of your computer, monitor, software or printer from the colour of the actual Product you receive.

Please be aware that all furniture has variants of colour and we therefore cannot guarantee exact colour matches.  Our bespoke painted furniture, particularly with a distressed finish, will always be unique due to the nature of manufacture.  Our furniture made from reclaimed pine will always vary from the Product image and it will have splits and imperfections in the finish.  These are all intentional features of these Products and should not be seen as defects.  The Product descriptions will clearly if the Product is made from reclaimed wood.

All sizes of products specified on the website are approximate only.  As most of our products are handmade, their actual measurements may vary slightly and we ask you to take this into account when measuring and/or considering whether to buy a particular Product.

All products shown are subject to availability.

We will not be liable to you for any indirect or consequential loss or damage arising out of any problem you notify to us and will have no liability to you for any failure or delay in delivering goods or any damage or defect in goods delivered which is caused by any event or circumstance which is beyond our reasonable control.
