We are currently behind on fulfilling some orders, and your order may not be delivered as quickly as usual, or within our carefully estimated timescales (which have always taken into account how quickly we can deliver either from stock, or when additional stock is required from our suppliers) 

This is due to a number of factors, including the fact that some of our European suppliers are unable to send goods to the UK until they have completed additional paperwork. This is out of our control, but we are working as fast as we can to keep these delays to a minimum. We are also running on lower than usual staff levels due to some being absent with Covid 19.

As a proud private family business, we do not employ call centres to answer our phone lines, and we do not usually operate a direct dispatch or drop ship by our suppliers. If you wish to call us or send us an email, we will do our best to respond as quickly as possible, but we ask you to please be understanding and to bear with us.

Orders from EU member states will be fulfilled with VAT, duties and additional paperwork / charges all taken care of by us, so there will be no extra or surprise charges due.

All orders placed will be fulfilled, many without the above delays and within our usual timescales, but it is important that we make you aware of possible delays.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this very testing time and stay safe.

Customer Service Terms and Conditions

Still a family business, still with a physical store, and still with our longstanding UK staff, we are here to help you.


Please see our Delivery Information page for full details

Methods of Payment

You can make a secure payment by credit card using our Secure Server and Shopping Cart.

You can pay using the following credit cards: Maestro, Visa, MasterCard, Solo, Electron and American Express.

Card Security Code

The Card Security Code is an extra security measure intended to ensure that you are in possession of the card at the time of placing the order. It also known as a CVC or CVV2 code.

If you have an American Express card, the code required is a four digit number, printed on the right hand side of the card, just above the long number across the middle.

For other cards, the security code is 3 digits, and is printed on your signature strip to the back of the card. Often the code here will be longer than 3 digits - where this is the case, only the last 3 digits are required.


All of the credit card information sent to Seymours travels through a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) 'pipeline'. The information goes from your computer to our secure server. SSL is the most advanced security measure available.

Returns, Refunds and Cancellations

We want you to be 100% delighted with your purchase. If you are not satisfied and wish to return or exchange something, you have 14 days from the date you receive your items. 

Please note that we are unable to accept the return of duvets, pillows and mattress protectors due to strict hygiene regulations. We will only refund these products if they are faulty. 

It is very important that any goods returned are in their original packaging, unused and in a condition exactly as they were sent to you. If returns are received out of packages, or in a condition that is not how they were sent to you, we will not accept the return and will not process a refund or exchange. You will also be asked to pay the carriage costs associated with returning these items to you.  

Your statutory rights are unaffected.
