On Etsy since 2008

Wood is our passion - honest, simple and stylish.

Several years ago, we had a little mid-life crisis...we left our old lives behind us, upped sticks and moved our small family to live amongst the trees and forests of Gloucestershire, UK. Nothing is nicer than experiencing the passing of the seasons, amongst the ever-changing and growing forest. It's wonderful.

Surrounded by the beautiful ancient woodlands we couldn't help but be influenced by them: we harvested trees for tipi poles...we had offcuts...these became beautiful dried logs for display...we felt that there could be more....candleholders became part of our range...and the range has continued to grow.

We have helped happy couples to celebrate their weddings in rustic style with log place-name holders, tailor made candleholders and cake stands. We're always ready to help you if we can; if you cannot find exactly what you are looking for in the shop, drop us a line and we will do our very best to help you too.

    This is us - loopy about logs! Some time ago, we were art students; then we became a product designer (him) & textile jewellery maker (her). Now we're here, bringing our products to you - straight from our little workshop in the woods...

    I was once here: ...but now logs have overtaken my life! I work with my husband daily to create items that people love to have in their homes. Life is good!

We create our wooden products with care, here in the United Kingdom.
We're in love with the natural attributes of wood, and like to make them sing. Seeing the concentric annual growth rings of the logs is testament to that - we treat the wood with respect and therefore no chemicals are used during our processing. Please be assured that the wood is completely dry when it leaves us - there is no risk of insects or mould entering your home!

Please take a moment to read our delivery/shipping information before you make your purchase. Do feel free to convo us with any questions or queries that you may have - we're here to help.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
Rest assured your items will be packaged safely and securely.

We are a small family run business and as such we produce and process each item ourselves. We take pride in the standard of our products and our service, however, if you are unhappy with your item do get in touch with us and we will do our level best to put things right.

Custom Orders may only be returned if faulty*.

Should you be unhappy with your purchase, our returns policy is as follows:

Please INFORM US within 14 days from the day you receive your goods that you wish to return them / have changed your mind. You then have a further 14 days to return the goods. The goods MUST be unused, mark/damage free and in complete bundles, in re-saleable condition. Please package them up securely (logs are heavy!) and return them to:

The Log Basket
14 Ironstone Close
GL15 6HF

If possible please include the completed RETURNS FORM with the goods. The return postage costs are to be covered by you. We recommend that you use a registered/sign for courier service and ensure that you obtain proof of posting or a tracking number/consignment number.
Within 14 days of receiving the unused logs/goods, we will issue you with a refund for the price you paid for the goods plus the initial outward basic postage charge**.

If your goods are faulty, they may be returned to us within 30 days and we will arrange a replacement. Alternatively, if you prefer to return the goods, kindly let us know. If the 30 days have elapsed - but within 6 months from the date of purchase - you may opt to have the goods replaced or receive a partial refund. Once we have received the goods we will issue you with a full refund including outward and return postage costs**.

*Please note that fissures and splits/cracks present within the logs are NOT faults - these occur naturally during the drying process.

**The Log Basket, where stated, will refund any postage charges at the BASIC rate only: no express/guaranteed/next day elements or charges over and above the basic delivery cost will be refunded.
Payment is due, please, at the time of your purchase.

If you have commissioned a custom order with us, we will create a personal listing just for you...please make your purchase via that listing.

Please note that all special orders will be processed once we have received your payment.
Our aim is to despatch your orders within two - ten working days of receipt of your payment. (The majority of UK orders will be at your door within one working week).

For UK customers: the majority of orders are dispatched via DPD's 'sign for' 24 hour courier service. Smaller orders will be sent via Royal Mail.

We will gain proof of posting your parcel if sent via Royal Mail. All courier dispatches are booked directly with DPD and we will receive a tracking number for your parcel(s). If required, the courier service can be arranged for a specific date of your choice (Mon-Fri only), however we are unable to specify an exact time of day. Otherwise, orders are dispatched from our workshops as soon as they are ready.
Additional policies and FAQs
We welcome you to contact us to discuss any ideas you may have...or...perhaps you would like to place a custom order for a specific project that you have in mind?
We have worked closely over the years with many retailers, visual merchandising teams, architects/designers and the hospitality trade to create bespoke display plinths, log wall art, unique log installations and large volume orders. If you think we could help YOU, we would love to hear from you!
