Terms & Conditions

Please read the following important terms and conditions before you buy anything on our website


We want you to be entirely happy with your Herdysleep mattress. Our sleep trial period gives you the opportunity to test your mattress for 100 nights, starting on the day of delivery. If, after 100 nights you decide your Herdysleep mattress is not for you, we will collect it at no extra cost and give you a full refund. We reserve the right to refuse the 100 night trial to anyone associated with a mattress

retailer/ manufacturer/ brand. Of course, we grant you our 100 night trial without limiting your statutory rights.

The Herdysleep sprung mattress topper and bespoke, made to order mattresses are excluded from the sleep trial. This information summarises some of your key rights.

        1 - Introduction

            • If you buy goods on our website, www.herdysleep.com (the “Website”) you agree to be legally bound by these terms and conditions and any documents referred to in them, together with our Privacy, Terms of Website Use, Returns and Refund Policies and the Delivery Information form part of the contract between you and us as though set out in full here (the “Terms”).
            • You may only buy goods from our Website for non-business reasons. If you want to buy our products for your business you should contact us on the details above to discuss our business to business terms.
            • All Herdysleep mattresses and protectors comply to British Standard BS7177 domestic use.
            • All Herdysleep pillows and duvets comply to British Standard BS5852.
            • These Terms together with our order form constitute the whole agreement between you and us and supersede any prior promises, representations, undertakings or implications whether written or oral.

        2 - Information we give you

            • By law, we must give you certain key information before a legally binding contract between you and us is made (the “Contract”).
            • The key information we give you by law forms part of this Contract (as though it is set out in full here).
            • We reserve our right to amend these Terms from time to time. If we have to revise these Terms as they apply to your order, we will contact you to give you reasonable advance notice of the changes and let you know how to cancel the Contract if you are not happy with the changes. If you would like to cancel, you will have to return (at our cost) any relevant goods you have already received and we will arrange a full refund of the price you have paid.

        3 - Ordering goods from us

        Below, we set out how the Contract between you and us is made.

        You place an order on the Website. Please read and check your order carefully before submitting it. However, if you need to correct any errors you can do so before submitting it to us. It is your responsibility to ensure your order is correct.

        We will not be responsible for any mistakes made to your order by you. If there is a mistake, you must notify us in writing of the correct details before the goods have been dispatched. We will notify you if we are unable to comply with the terms of the amended order, or if there will be any additional costs in doing so.

        When you place your order at the end of the online checkout process (e.g. when you click on the Buy Now button) we will acknowledge it by email. This acknowledgement does not, however, mean that your order has been accepted.

        We may contact you to say that we do not accept your order. This is typically for the following reasons:

            • the goods are unavailable,
            • we cannot authorise your payment,
            • you are not allowed to buy the goods from us,
            • we are not allowed to sell the goods to you,
            • you have ordered too many goods, or
            • there has been a mistake on the pricing or description of the goods (where permissible under applicable law).

        We will only accept your order when we email you to confirm this via confirmation email. At this point the Contract will be in place between you and us.

        4 - Delivery

          • We usually dispatch Herdysleep mattresses within 2-4 working days from receipt of the confirmation email. Delivery usually takes between 2 and 7 days (for in-stock items), is free of charge to addresses within the UK and includes a 2 person delivery to the room of your choice. Our delivery company will contact you 24 hours before the proposed delivery date to arrange a convenient delivery time slot.
          • Herdysleep pillowtop mattresses and sprung mattress toppers are made to order products. Delivery is approximately 4-6 weeks from receipt of order.
          • Pillows, duvets and mattress protectors will be sent via a courier service and will be delivered to addresses in standard delivery areas between 3-5 working days after the order is placed (Monday to Friday). Orders placed on a Saturday or Sunday will be processed on the next working day. 
          • If the delivery address is located in an extended delivery zone, such as the Scottish Highlands, delivery may take 7-14 days from the date you place your order. More information is available on our Website in respect of the location of standard delivery areas and the extended delivery zone.
          • You can see your delivery options by visiting our Website page “Delivery & Returns” before you place your order.
          • If you have purchased a bundle of goods at an offer price (known as a ‘bundle’), the items in that bundle may arrive at different times due to our use of different couriers for different types of goods.
            • Mattress deliveries. The estimated date for delivery of the goods will be confirmed by our delivery company. For convenience, the day before delivery, you will receive an SMS message and email confirmation message with your delivery date. On the morning of delivery, you will receive a reminder message via SMS and email. In addition to this, the delivery team will call en route to introduce themselves by name, confirm the product that is being delivered and confirm the 2 person delivery to the room of your choice.
            • If something happens outside of our control, which affects the estimated date of delivery, we will let you have a revised estimated date for delivery of the goods.
            • Delivery of the goods will take place when we deliver them to the address that you gave to us during the online ordering process.
            • Mattress delivery will be to the room of your choice (at the discretion of the delivery team) of the property at the address. On entry to the property, we and any third party contractor may refuse to deliver to a room if it is obvious that they will cause damage in doing so (i.e. if there are paintings hung on the staircase that they are likely to damage). Any damage to the goods or your property or its contents as a direct result of our delivery service must be reported to us by email within three working days of the delivery taking place. If you do not report such damage to us within this time frame, then we shall not be liable to you for any such damage.
            • The driver may ask to see a form of ID to satisfy himself that the person accepting delivery is you or a person authorised by you to accept delivery of the goods.
            • Unless you and we agree otherwise, if we cannot deliver your goods within 21 days, we will let you know, cancel your order, and give you a refund.
            • If nobody is available to take delivery, please contact us (hello@herdysleep.com) within 12 hours of placing your order on the Website.
            • You are responsible for the goods when delivery has taken place. In other words, the risk in the goods passes to you when you take possession of the goods.
            • If you have ordered more than one item from us, please be aware that each item may be delivered separately.

          5 - Right to cancel this Contract

          • You have the right to cancel this Contract within 14 days from the date of the delivery of the goods without giving any reason. Please note, this does not apply to bespoke products.
          • The cancellation period will expire after 14 days from the day you receive the goods.
          • To exercise the right to cancel, you must inform us of your decision to cancel this Contract by a clear statement (e.g. a letter sent by post or email). You can use the model cancellation form set out in the box below, but it is not obligatory. If you use this method, we will email you to confirm we have received your cancellation.

      • where we collect the goods, 14 days after the day on which we are informed about your decision to cancel this Contract;
      • where you return the goods, 14 days after the day we received back from you any goods supplied, or
      • (if earlier) 14 days after the day you provide evidence that you have returned the goods, or
      • if there were no goods supplied, 14 days after the day on which we are informed about your decision to cancel this Contract.

    • You are responsible for packaging and passing the mattress to our third party collection company.
  2. 100 Night Sleep Trial
    • We offer a 100 night sleep trial for our standard and pillowtop mattresses which means you can return a mattress within this time period that you are not happy with.
    • Your 100 night sleep trial will begin on the day your mattress is delivered. The start date of sleep trial cannot be delayed from this date.
    • You must inform us of your wish to return the mattress within 100 days from the day you receive the mattress. We recommend that you trial your mattress for a minimum of 30 days before requesting a return. This allows time for natural settlement and gives your body time to adjust to your new mattress.
    • We strongly encourage the use of a mattress protector during your 100 night sleep trial to protect your mattress. We will only accept returns and issue refunds if the mattress is in a resalable condition. Please click here for further details and for further details about collection. We will not refund the cost of delivery (if any).
    • You can inform us by simply calling us on 01539 739202 (Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm) or emailing us: hello@herdysleep.com. You can also inform us by letter sent by post. You will need to provide us with details of your order.
    • We will be deemed to have received your request from the date you speak to us on the phone, send us an email or post the letter to us.
    • If we have agreed to process the return, we will refund you using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless we have expressly agreed otherwise. We will process your refund within 14 days of collection of the mattress.
    • Collection of your mattress needs to be arranged with our third-party collection service within 14 days of the 100-night sleep trail being terminated.
    • If you return your mattress under the 100 night sleep trial and select to have your old mattress taken away and recycled when you place your order, the mattress will be collected free of charge but the cost of £35.00 for recycling your old mattress will not be reimbursed.
    • We reserve the right to refuse the 100 night sleep trial to anyone associated with a mattress manufacturer/brand.
    • We will not agree to the return of a mattress as part of the 100 night sleep trial where the mattress is stained or is damaged in any way, however that stain or damage was incurred (unless it had been caused by us prior to delivery). If we discover a stain or damage when we receive a mattress we will not reimburse the full price and will discuss with you your options regarding that mattress. The fire retardancy label also needs to remain attached in order to return the mattress.
    • Our 100 Night Sleep Trial is based on goodwill. If we have grounds to believe that you are abusing that goodwill in some way, or acting otherwise than in good faith, then we reserve the right to investigate further and may ultimately refuse to process your refund. Your statutory rights are not affected.
    • We do not allow 100 night sleep trials to be taken out on consecutive purchases of Herdysleep products.
    • Bespoke mattresses and mattress enhancers are not included in the 100 night sleep trial.
  3. How to Pay
    • We accept payment via credit cards, debit cards and PayPal account.  We do not accept cash or cheques.
    • We will do all that we reasonably can to ensure that all of the information you give us, when paying for the goods, is secure by using an encrypted secure payment mechanism. However, in the absence of negligence on our part, we will not be legally responsible to you for any loss that you may suffer if a third party gains unauthorised access to any information that you give us.
    • Your credit card or debit card will only be charged at the time the order is made. If we cannot supply you with the goods that you ordered but you have already paid for them, we will refund you as soon as possible and, in any event, within 5 days.
    • When making a payment to us, you are confirming that all details you provide to us, for the purpose of purchasing any goods, are correct and that the credit or debit card or PayPal account which you use is your own, that there are sufficient funds or credit facilities to cover the cost of any goods, and that you are over the age of 18 years. We reserve the right to obtain validation and verification of the authenticity of your credit card or debit card details or your PayPal account before processing your order.
  4. Price of Goods
    • The price of the goods will be as quoted on our Website at the time you submit your order. We take reasonable care to ensure that the prices of goods are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system.
    • Prices for our goods may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order you have already placed.
    • The price of any goods includes VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the United Kingdom for the time being.

    • It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the goods on our Website may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that:
      • where the good’s correct price is less than the price stated on our Website, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the goods to you. However, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we will contact you in writing as soon as possible to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the goods at the correct price or cancelling your order; and
      • if the good’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our Website, we will contact you in writing as soon as possible to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the goods at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing.
    • Occasionally third parties offer discounts and voucher codes for our products despite not being affiliated with our business and not having approval from us. We are entitled to decline any discount, promotion, voucher or similar codes that have been provided by third parties to you, and to end our own promotions at any time.
