None The Comparative The Superlative The Tops
No thanks, I already have my own Open sprung and generously upholstered – a long-lasting mattress that won’t break the bank. Great in the spare room for occasional guests. This pocket sprung mattress is superbly comfy thanks to evenly distributed support from every pocket. Bedfellow? What bedfellow? You wouldn’t even know they were there! So-called because you get an extra layer of mini springs on top. The ultimate in support and weight distribution and will look after you for a lifetime.

The Comparative mattress

We went on the hunt for a really good, well made, comfortable, long-lasting mattress that didn’t break the bank. We found it in rural Wiltshire. This mattress represents exceptional value. Set on an open coil spring system it is generously upholstered with lots of layers of comfy stuff, this may be our standard mattress, but it's a very high standard.

The Superlative mattress

Mattress salesmen love to blind you with mattress guff: they love to harp on about “individual pocket springs”, how they mould to your contours, and how choosing a mattress will be the most important decision you ever make since you are to spend at least a third of your life in bed. Well, this mattress has got fourteen hundred individually pocketed springs, which, take it from us, is a hell of a lot. It has many layers of comfy upholstery, and if you were to spend a third of the rest of your life atop it, we are confident you would say you had had a grand life!

The Tops mattress

Not only is there a base that contains one thousand four hundred pocketed springs, there is another layer, about 5cm high, that contains another thousand mini-springs, and further upholstery. This makes it deep, and almost problematically comfortable. We have one at home, and whenever guests sleep on it, they say that they have never had more relaxing, sounder sleep – they return home, refreshed, but sad to revisit their own inadequate mattress.

Over the Tops Literally Incomparable The Exmoor Organic The Total Recall

The Exmoor Organic mattress

We found our organic mattresses on a jolly trip to the West Country. Mark, sitting in a cloud of angora mohair, regaled us with his desire to create the world’s most comfortable, ethically sourced mattresses. Honestly, they are things of rare beauty (tough to say, we accept, for a mattress), and if you were to cut into them (which we recommend you don’t) you would find all manner of gorgeousness within. It has at its core a layer of a zillion pocketed springs – it is then upholstered organic coconut husk, organic Indian latex, organic, super fluff, West Country lambswool – everything, bar the springs is 100% natural. All this creates a completely breathable, absurdly comfy, fragrant, anti-allergenic, guilt-free deep green slumber.

The Total Recall mattress

Ignore the name, this mattress has absolutely nothing to do with Arnie visiting Mars. But the point is, the Total Recall is about as luxurious as you can get; it’s the crème de la crème of mattresses. Made up of thousands of pocket springs, it moulds to the shape of your body, which means it’s uber supportive whilst also maintaining air circulation to prevent any stuffiness. As if that wasn’t enough, it’s also layered with lots of natural goodness - horsehair, cotton and cashmere. What could be more spoiling than that! You’ll be back…
