CONSUMER CANCELLATIONS & RETURNS POLICY 

If you are a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel or return an order as set out below. If you are a trade customer, please see the TRADE section below. 

Please note: this cancellation right does not apply in the case of any bespoke or customised goods which have been customised in accordance with your specific request. 

We will refund you the price you paid for the Products, less the cost of delivery to you (if goods have been despatched). However, please note we are permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop.

To cancel your order please fill out the Cancellation/ Return Form which can be accessed in your account by clicking ‘amend order’. Please note this is only applicable to customers with an account and if goods have NOT been despatched. If you do not have an account and want to cancel your order please contact us. If goods have not yet been sent they will be immediately refunded in full within 14 days of your cancellation being received and confirmed.  
However, please note personalised or bespoke items, such as items cut to size, cannot be cancelled if they are already in production.

Measuring Guide

What curtain pole length do I need?

Walcot House measuring guide for curtain poles

Measure the width of your window (cm)

Add a minimum of 15cm either side, preferably more, but for full curtains or wide windows allow at least 25cm if you have the room, excluding finials (decorative pole ends).

Choose a stock length or cut to size yourself for non standard lengths (we promise it's really easy!)
    Helpful tip: Ensure there is room for your finials beyond the ends of your pole.
