Hello & Welcome!

Thank you for visiting The Holly Cottage Chandler site.  Chandler is the old name for a candle-maker and that’s exactly what I do….make highly scented soy candles and wax melts to enhance the home.

The chandlery is based at Holly Cottage in rural Lancashire, where I live with several Highland ponies, sheep, dogs, chickens, a husband and a cat.

I started chandlery in order to produce candles for my own home with a decent scent throw at a fair price. I found that so many of the affordable candles had poor throws and that my money was literally going up in smoke. But I also found that candles that I liked were incredibly expensive. There had to be a better way. As with many small businesses, one thing led to another and I find myself in the lucky position that people like what I make.

But I am only one person, so although I do my best to keep my stock shelves full, please be aware that all my candles and melts are handmade on a very small scale and it’s a time-consuming task. If I don’t have what you want in stock I will make it for you as quickly as I can and dispatch it as soon as its cured.

If you live near Chorley in Lancashire you are welcome to collect from me!

Enjoy the site and thank you for visiting.
