Off-premises contract

I am confused as to what is a off-premises contract.

A consumer agrees to view a car, but the trader invites the consumer to their (the traders) home to view rather than their business premises.

The consumer agrees to purchase the car and an invoice signed only by the trader within the traders home is raised, a deposit is requested but agreed to be paid latter that day by transfer.

Latter that day at the consumers home, the consumer sends a deposit by bank transfer.

Two days latter the consumer advises that their circumstances have changed and they wish to cancel and request a refund of their deposit.

Would this be classed a off-premies allowing a cooling off period?

Briefly, an "off premises contract"* is one made elsewhere than the trader's business premises.

*I have not checked if that is the right terminology.
