About Us


Home of The Hornsea Candle

Yorkshire Coast Candles is based in the small seaside town of Hornsea, East Yorkshire.  The candles that are lovingly created are done so in small batches so that they have that individual handcrafted touch that larger manufacturers do not have.  

The ingredients are sourced (where possible) from independent retailers, in an attempt to maintain and sustain individual artisan retailers, stores and wholesalers, and every supplier is UK based, we do not source goods from beyond the UK. This is simply so that we can contribute in some small way towards maintaining the UK economy and other small businesses and those that are UK based.

Yorkshire Coast Candles also ensures that the containers used to create the products are either recyclable, and/or reusable so that you can continue to enjoy elements of the product for longer, and equally get value for money when you make a purchase from us, for example, the jar your candle comes in can be cleaned and reused for jam or pickle making or something similar.

All candles and wax melts produced by Yorkshire Coast Candles are made from 100% Soy so are vegan friendly, and we`ve chosen this wax as it is better for your health and the environment around us: Soy burns cleaner and produces as much as 90% less soot than paraffin, reducing the amount of indoor air pollution, so Soy wax won't ruin your walls: The emissions from paraffin candles build up on walls, staining the paint in your home.

Soy candles typically last longer than a paraffin candle of the same size. The reason behind the longevity of Soy candles is the slower burning time and cooler burning temperature of the soybean-based wax. Soy wax is also biodegradable, making it an investment that benefits the environment.

Yorkshire Coast Candles also use Paraben Free fragrances and scents to enhance the products created, which also means that there are no nasty chemicals in them, and this applies to fragrances used within all of the products, and we have ensured that this is without losing the quality of the fragrances used.  The scents used within the products are not only Paraben Free but remain to be of the highest quality possible to enable us to bring you a quality product that you`ll enjoy!

You will also observe that none of the products created by Yorkshire Coast Candles have artificial colourants in them, so all of the Soy based products and the reed diffusers created by us remain to be their natural colour.  We do not like to add something that is not necessary to an already beautiful and natural product, we like it to remain as authentic as possible.

Yorkshire Coast Candles are constantly handcrafting and experimenting with products on an ongoing basis, where the product range will expand over time. In the meantime, we hope you see something that takes your fancy, and if there is something that you would specifically like us to create or something that you would like to see in the expanding product range, then we would welcome your comments towards this.

We hope you enjoy the handcrafted products that we create!
