As part of our policy of continuous product development, all specification, descriptions, images, prices and availability may be subject to change at any time without prior notification.
Although we do our utmost to ensure that information is correct there may be times when errors occur and we do not provide guarantee as to the accuracy, completeness or suitability of any of the information on this website including pricing.

Delivery and Returns.
We will inform you of delivery times as soon as is reasonably practical after receiving your order.
The beepalace is made by seasoned potters who do not rush their work to ensure a quality product is produced.
For your convenience, deliveries do not need to be signed for and can be made to an address of your choice. If you give us specific delivery instructions (e.g. leave in garage) drivers will leave goods as requested. This is only applicable on orders which are delivered by our courier. Other orders which are delivered by Royal Mail are subject to Royal Mail delivery terms and conditions, as a result specific delivery instructions will not be adhered to.
