All our furniture is handmade using solid Teak (natural wood). As it is handmade, we cannot guarantee any consistency of size, colour, grain, or markings in the wood. You may find slight variations in size, angles, and design from time to time, but this is the beauty of buying a quality handmade product, such as Cotswold Teak Garden furniture.
Hairline cracks will be present in the wood. This is normal and appears in the grain of the wood. This will not affect the longevity or the usability of the products, it’s part of the character and part of buying and owning quality Teak furniture.

At the time of placing your order, we will aim to confirm the availability of your product. Delivery timings will be discussed with you at the time of placing your order. Please note: Products are insured up to the time they are delivered to you.
Goods shall be delivered and accepted as soon as they’re ready, unless the contract for delivery is on a specific date. If the contract provides for delivery on a specific date, any failure by the "Company" to deliver on that date shall not entitle the "Customer" to rescind the contract on condition that the "Company" agrees to and delivers on a new delivery date not later than 21 days after the contracted delivery date.
In exceptional circumstances, products that are available "in stock" may not pass our final inspection prior to dispatch. If this situation occurs, then you will be immediately advised of such and a revised delivery time will be given to you.
Delivery is to the ground floor only (or roadside). No liability can be accepted for costs caused by late deliveries or for any other reason. In exceptional circumstances, deliveries can still be made when there is no one present to accept it. If both parties agree to this then the word of the “Company” will be sufficient to confirm that delivery of the goods was made.
*Delivery times vary depending on the product type and seasonal variations.
The delivery prices shown on our website are home deliveries within mainland Britain. Large items are transported directly to your home in LWB or Luton vans; smaller items may be delivered by a parcel service.
Report damages, faults, or errors to Customer Services by email [email protected] within 24 hours of receiving the goods.
Please check your order on arrival. In the unlikely event that anything is wrong we will try to rectify it at that time. If we need to replace any articles for any reason, please allow for delivery lead times.
If you are not in at the time of delivery we would have to charge you a redelivery charge in line with the charges made by the carrier for the failed delivery due to no fault of ourselves or our carrier. We will contact you to inform you of these charges and take payment.
Returns & Exchanges:
You can cancel your order up to 14 calendar days after the day on which you receive your goods (except for any made to order items or ‘specials’ are non-refundable). To cancel your order, you must inform us in writing giving your name, address, telephone number, email address and details of your order. You can notify us in writing at the following email: [email protected]. You can also use the returns link on the website once you are logged in.
To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication advising that you wish to exercise your right to cancel before the cancellation period has expired. Please note, you might have to provide proof of despatch if you post the item such that the cancellation notice is delivered to us after the expiration of the cancellation period.
You cannot cancel your order if the goods are bespoke (i.e. made to order) or personalised in any way.
You cannot cancel your order if the goods have become inseparably mixed with other items after delivery. For instance, if you treat the goods with Teak Oil or a Teak Care product the timber and the Teak Care product will have become inseparably mixed. You will be deemed to have accepted the goods and you will not be able to cancel the order.
If you cancel your order, we will reimburse all payments received from you, including the costs of delivery (except for the supplementary costs arising if you chose a type of delivery other than the least expensive standard delivery offered by us). You must bear the cost of returning the goods via a courier or we can arrange to collect larger goods at the rates specified below.
We may make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss in value of any goods supplied if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you. You are permitted to inspect the goods but are not allowed to use them. You must return the goods in the original packaging they were delivered in.
There may be a deduction if the goods are not returned in the same condition that they were in when they were delivered. To mitigate this we suggest, for pre-assembled items, you store them in a garage or cover them until they are collected.
We will make the reimbursement not later than 14 calendar days after the day we receive back from you any goods supplied or (if earlier) 14 days after the day you provide evidence that you have returned the goods.
We will make the reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction. We will withhold reimbursement until we have received the goods back or you have supplied evidence of having sent the goods back, whichever is the earliest.
Restocking Charges & Cost Of Returns:
You will have to bear the cost of returning the goods. You should return smaller items, value up to approximately £100, via Royal Mail or courier and this will cost £10 - £20 to return. Please make sure you insure the goods and retain proof of despatch which might be required by us to process a refund. A restocking charge applies for orders that are returned to us by your own transport. For larger items, in mainland England and Wales, we can arrange to collect the items from the delivery address. The costs will be:
• £45 For order values £50 - £199.99
• £90 For order values £200 - £399.99
• £200 For order values Over £400.00
There will be a surcharge for collection from Scotland of £100 depending on the location of the delivery address. If delivery was to an agent/freight forwarder collection will only be from the point of delivery not the onward customer address. For items that have been taken offshore they must be returned to the original mainland delivery address and this cost will be borne by the buyer. We will endeavour to collect the goods within 14 days of receipt of your notice to cancel the order. We will notify you of the collection date and you should ensure the items are available for collection on that date. Failure to have the goods available as arranged will delay any refund.
Cancelation by Us:

• We have insufficient stock to deliver the goods you have ordered
• We do not deliver to your area one or more of the goods you ordered was listed at an incorrect price due to a typographical error or an error in the pricing information received by us from our suppliers.
