Don’t forget however, that we offer free super-fast delivery on all orders over £30 (excluding Letterbox Gifts).
Currently deliveries can take a little longer to get to you, this is due to driver shortages and increased covid rates across the UK which is effecting our delivery partners.
At present we only deliver to the UK mainland. Please contact us for a price if you live in the Scottish Highlands and Islands, Isle of Scilly, Northern Ireland or Isle of Man. Any online orders placed for these locations will be refunded.

We send your smaller Letterbox boxes via Royal Mail 1st Class services, and your larger deliveries are delivered with APC with their “up to 48 hour” delivery service, we have found that they treat the products with the love and care they deserve on their journey.
All our boxes are dispatched with ice chill packs to keep the cheese both cold and fresh – therefore Letterbox Cheese products can only be dispatched on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday due to Royal Mail 1st class not guaranteeing next day delivery.
Usually, we will make up your order the next working day after the order is received.
Orders placed on a Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday, it will not be dispatched until the following Monday. Please note we do not ship your orders on bank holidays.
How is the cheese packaged?
We use a sturdy letterbox sized card box for your smaller deliveries, and a traditional cardboard courier box for larger orders. Packing materials such as wood wool and ice packs to keep the cheese cool in transit. We want you to like the look of your delivery in addition to liking the taste of it (they also look excellent as gifts). Please ensure you recycle our packaging!

The sizes we suggest for each cheese are approximate. Never a fixed size product, cutting from two different handmade cheeses can result in two different sized pieces. We will always try to be as accurate as possible and if one piece in your order is a little bit light you can be assured that another will be a little bit heavy to compensate!
Very occasionally a cheese will not be available to fulfil your order. If this is the case then we will leave this cheese off your order.
