Ashwood is based in Bristol, which is in the South West of the UK.
We release a new full catalogue every year, but our website is constantly updated with the latest products.
If you have successfully registered for an online account with us, you can view the catalogue here: https://www.ashwoodgifts.com/en/page/brochure-request. If you would like a hard copy of our catalogue in the post, please just get in touch.
In 99% or cases the answer is yes! Our reps currently cover the whole of the UK and Ireland and most of Europe too. We also provide great customer service over the phone so please do get in touch. Our website is the easiest and most convenient option for viewing products and placing orders, as it is fully up to date with all our new products, and you can see current stock availability.
Ashwood supplies all kinds of visitor attractions, garden centres, toy shops and high street/online retailers throughout the UK, Europe and the rest of the world! Indeed, any retailer who stocks and sells products that are bought by or for children is a potential customer!
Yes we do - Ashwood is an ethical company that cares. We currently support a number of charities (see https://www.ashwoodgifts.com/en/page/charities-we-support for more details.
Please get in touch with us. We will always consider supporting new causes or events, often by way of supplying some free stock to be used for raffle prizes etc.
Yes we do and we offer wholesale discount - please contact email@example.com if you are a wholesaler and are interested in stocking our products.
The minimum order value is only £150/170€.
Free carriage is available on all UK/Ireland orders of £250/300€ or more. Part carriage charges of only £9/11€ apply on orders below this value. For deliveries to Europe and beyond, carriage is normally charged at approximately 5% of the order value. Please contact us to see if we can arrange a carriage-paid order value for your location.
All products have a minimum pack quantity, as shown in the website and in our catalogue. You can order less than this if you wish to trial an item, but if you do, you cannot specify colours or types from assorted packs and you may not receive a display box.
Most orders are dispatched the same working day they are received, so deliveries are usually within 2 working days within mainland UK, and more like a week or so throughout most of Europe. All parcel deliveries are fully tracked; once your order has been dispatched, you will receive an email notification advising you of this and providing you with a tracking number.
Yes you can! Stock availability/stock levels are up to date and clearly displayed on our website.
There are many ways to place an order; by phone and by email for example, but the quickest and easiest way is right here - on our website!

Yes; all previous web orders will be visible to you when you sign into your account on the website. In fact, you can even add previous orders to a new order with only one click (and then make any amendments required).
No - there is no charge for delivery of back orders, and you will always be notified of a back order prior to it being despatched (in case you want to add to it or cancel it). If your backorder is less than £75 worth of goods, we will require additional items to be added to it to take it over this value in order for us to send it out (or alternatively we will simply send it out with your next order).
Yes absolutely. We will email you when the backorder items are back in stock and you can reply confirming any additions at that time. Alternatively, please give us a call with your additional items and we will be happy to help.
Any item that is out of stock when you place an order should have a due date against it on your order confirmation and on your delivery note. You can check the up-to-date due date at any time on our website, and we will email you when the back order item/s are back in stock.
Lead times vary depending on the product, but for more straightforward items this can be as quick as 2-3 weeks. For more complex, bespoke products, we can typically design and produce logo printed items in around 12 weeks. Please enquire about the specific product/products that you're interested in.
Prices depend upon a number of factors, including the design required, the number of print colours and the quantity required. We offer a professional service and competitive pricing - just get in touch with your requirements for a proposal.
This depends on the product, but typically it would be around 300pcs. Please get in touch and we would be happy to confirm minimum order quantities for the specific products that you're interested in.

Trade credit accounts are available to customers (typically 21 days), subject to status. Alternatively, you can simply pay Pro Forma.
We accept all kinds of payment methods; Direct Debit, card (Visa, Mastercard & Maestro), BACS, Paypal and cheque. Whichever you prefer!

Due to the bespoke nature of these items the Buy-Back Guarantee does not apply to these products no.

Please contact us ASAP (within 48 hours) with your delivery note/invoice number and account reference, and details of the damaged item(s), and we will resolve this immediately for you (either by issuing a credit note or by sending replacement stock).

For any current product lines, we maintain the product on our website so that is is still viewable and update stock availability/due dates accordingly.

Yes; we are often able to provide display stands free of charge when you order from a product range in sufficient quantity - as stated in our catalogue (unless you are a wholesaler buying at discounted rates, in which case our display stands are chargeable).
Our products often come in a variety of colours and styles. Normally the photo on the website/in the catalogue shows all the different colours/styles that the product comes in when you order a single pack. And normally there is an equal mix of the different colours/styles per pack.
Normally speaking we do not offer this; simply because it spoils other stock of the item. However, if you have a specific request, please do ask and we will see if we can accommodate it.
Yes often you can - as long as the order is definite and will not be cancelled/reduced. This is at our discretion though, and will depend upon current stock levels etc.
Please let us know as soon as the damaged or faulty item is identified, providing detail as to the specific issue and ideally providing photo evidence. We will investigate and rectify the issue for you without delay - typically with either replacement product or a credit note.
For all our stock toy and gift products, you can take advantage of our Buy-Back Guarantee! (https://www.ashwoodgifts.com/en/page/buy-back-guarantee).
No - due to the fact that availability of our grotto present options changes constantly throughout the year, we don't include all the options in a printed catalogue. However, you can view the full, current range live on our website at any time (where you can search by age/gender/budget): https://www.ashwoodgifts.com/en/category/grotto-presents
We pride ourselves on being "faster than lightning" and can often support urgent orders at short notice. However, the earlier you order, typically the more choice of present options you'll have to choose from. Please get in touch with us to discuss your specific requirements.

A minimum order value of £250 applies to all orders - including grotto present orders. You can select any combination of products from our range to make up this value.
This depends on a number of factors, including the number of presents you require, the particular point in the year when you order, when you can take delivery etc. Please contact us to discuss further.
