Why Our Sleep Experts Loved It

becky says

When you think of getting a new mattress, the first thing that comes to mind is cost. But there are several other factors you also need to keep in mind. Let’s face it, whether we like it or not, a mattress is something that we use almost every day for about eight hours at a stretch. Which means investing in the right one is essential if you want to get the most out of your new bed and its accompanying nights of restful sleep. Thankfully there is the Bed Butler Ashbourne 2000 Pocket Natural Mattress to save the day, helping to improve REM sleep and provide a solution for those looking for a firmer nights sleep with enhanced orthopaedic support. But does it live up to the hype? Let’s find out.

What is it made of?

The Bed Butler Ashbourne 2000 Pocket Natural Mattress is a pocket spring mattress that is sold exclusively through the popular retailer, MattressNextDay. The product utilises an upper comfort layer of fibre fillings of wool, silk and cashmere (although we were unable to get GSM numbers for the exact ratio). The result of this combination of materials is that you get a breathable and cooling experience that promotes increased airflow while you sleep. What’s more, you get a super soft feel in the comfort layer that helps offset some of the firmness of the support layer below.

Further to the above, you also have enhanced edge protection thanks to the premium pocket springs in the base layer. This beats out traditional spring mattresses that do not have reinforced barriers and the result is that you have enhanced roll-off protection.

How firm is it?

The mattress is specifically designed with firmer tension in mind, giving enhanced protection for those who want additional support for their back and neck. In practice this tension feels closer to a medium-firm in our opinion, coming in at a 6-7 out of 10 where 1 is the softest and 10 is the firmest. The result is a slightly softer mattress than some may expect, however, still sufficient for many who need a bit more support.

Due to the slightly softer than firm experience, the amount of people that may find this product suitable might have increased as side sleepers may also find this suitable. That said, it is still primarily targeted toward back sleepers.

Something that is often overlooked is the ease of movement on the mattress. In a growing age of foam tops, movement can become increasingly challenging which might disturb REM sleep. Thankfully, the deep fillings of wool and cashmere utilised here do not have the same sinking properties and mean you have far better movement when sleeping on this mattress. 

If however, you find that you get too hot at night then this could be the ideal mattress for you as the breathability of all of the materials within this product are ideally suited toward promoting airflow and reducing sweat and moisture build up.

Key Performance Indicators KPI question mark

Our Key Performance Indicators are produced using a combination of specification-heavy algoritmic data points and user reviews. For example, a firm pocket spring support layer is more breathable and offers better back support but may prove unsuitable for side sleepers, the reverse is true for a soft-medium tension reflex foam support layer. This is one of 100+ datapoints considered when generating the below ratings.


*Assuming average weight, suitability will vary dependant on body type, use the quiz above for a more tailored guide.
  • Back Sleepers
  • The amount of support offered from a mattress will vary depending on the firmness of the tension and the type of support layer used. Based on a person of average build.
  • Side Sleepers
  • If you sleep on your side you typically need a supportive tension that is not too firm, nor too soft. This is because your hips and shoulders need adequate sinkage.
  • Stomach Sleepers
  • Stomach sleepers need a reasonable amount of tension in the base support layer to adequately offer body contouring and help prevent aches and pains. Results will vary based on your build.


  • Breathability
  • Mattresses that feature breathable materials help promote airflow and keep you cool making for a more hygienic night's sleep.
  • Turning on mattress
  • Certain materials like memory foam can make it difficult to move about on the mattress while you toss and turn. Same too for pillow tops which can create a cloud like sensation which can make manoeuvrability challenging.
  • Stability
  • Depending on the type of support layer in place can have an impact on stability, edge to edge support and roll together prevention. Pocket springs of a firmer tension will have better stability than open coil soft tension, for example.

Ease of Use

  • Turning handles
  • Mattresses typically need to be rotated frequently and having turning handles can be massively beneficial, particularly in larger sizes which can become fairly heavy.


  • Initial Odour
  • Materials in mattresses, particularly memory foam and rolled bed-in-a-box mattresses can have an initial odour, this is typically short term and reduces considerably within 24 hours.
  • Long Standing Odour
  • Certain materials inside different mattresses can produce a small odour. Typically this is short term rather than long standing but there are minor exceptions.

Brand Rating

  • Overall Brand Rating
  • This is based on community driven customer reviews tied to product reviews and grouped together at a brand level to produce a score.

What Makes The Bed Butler Ashbourne 2000 Pocket Natural Mattress Great?

2000 Individually pocketed springs for a firmer, more responsive feel.

A mattress with pocket springs will have individual springs that are each encased in their own fabric pocket. This allows the springs to move independently from one another, providing better support and durability. Additionally, pocketed springs are less likely to sag over time than traditional springs, making them a good choice for those who want a long-lasting mattress.

Exclusive design made in the UK and only available at MattressNextDay.

It is common in the mattress industry for retailers to have exclusive products made for them. This means you won't be able to price compare the product elsewhere. The benefit of this is that the retailer is able to control product quality to a better degree. The downside is a lack of price matching reduces competitiveness when it comes to pricing.

Temperature regulating cotton filling for a cooler night’s sleep.

There are many benefits to cotton in mattresses, including its hypoallergenic properties, its ability to regulate body temperature, and its breathability. Cotton is also a very durable fabric, so it can withstand a lot of wear and tear.

Support foam makes this ideal for back, front and side sleepers.

Wool, silk and luxurious cashmere natural fillings.

Sleep is the foundation of human health and wellness. It influences daytime energy levels, productivity, mood, and even heart health. A mattress filled with natural fillings creates a cool sleep surface that pulls heat from your body and helps to provide support for a healthy spine.

Reinforced edges for more sleeping space.

The supportive edge system is designed to prevent roll off while you sleep while also creating a safe and supportive edge that will avoid dipping and increase durability.

Pocket springs

Pocket springs are like natures own springy piece of comfort, except they are not from nature. Alas, pocket springs are a very good part of a mattress and often found in the more premium models. Lower quality products will frequently use open coil spring setups, where pocket springs house each spring in a tiny pocket for additional stability and continued support. Pocket spring typically lasts longer than open coil due to this.

Reflex foam

Reflex foam is basically like memory foam without the memory part. Reflex foam is used more as a supportive layer than a comfort layer and is often used as an alternative to conventional spring systems.

Natural Fillings

Pure and natural fillings are typically from animal or plant fibers. These can include: Wool, Cashmere, Hemp or Latex commonly.


The luxurious natural fibre silk offers enhanced comfort, moisture control and helps to regulate body temperature.  It can reduce heat in the summer and provide warmth in winter.


Luxury wool, typically found in mattresses in a shredded and felted capacity is an upholstery fibre often used as a top comfort layer, but sometimes found further down in those mattress layers as part of the support structure


A cotton mattress cover of fairly good quality and often preferable to damask covers and weaved covers. Your preference will vary though.


28cm deep

28cm of depth is a good amount of room for both a comfort layer and a construction. While higher mattress depth does not always correlate to better quality mattresses, it is normally a fairly good indicator.  With this size of mattress you might require deeper mattress covers.

Firm support

Firm Tension Support Mattresses are suited to those who prefer sleeping on their front and back. Typically sleeping on your back helps ensure the spine remains aligned throughout the night and is the most natural sleeping position that can prevent twisting and turning. A firm mattress ensures that a high level of support contours around your body, alleviating pressure across your entire frame in a more even manner than that of a soft mattress, most notably in the hips, neck and shoulders.Finally, if you are suffering from neck or back pain, a firm mattress can help alleviate these problems and result in a better and more relaxed sleep for many years to come.

2000 Springs

This is going to be a very good quality pocket spring mattress, anything more than 1000 springs fits into the upper quadrant of quality. Ultimately the more springs the better the mattress can contour to your body. 2000 springs will give amazing comfort.

Reinforced Edges

Reinforced Edges provide a higher density area around the mattress supplying a stronger resistance to pressure.  As well as preventing the mattress from sagging and extending its lifespan the firmer edges give you extra usable space and edge to edge support.

Air Vents

When you sleep you also sweat, when this happens it generally leaks into the mattress. Sounds a little gross but that is the way it works, no drama however as matresses are built to be breathable and air out any moisture buildup, the addition of air vents helps ensure this happens with peak efficiency

Turning Handles

Have you ever tried rotating or flipping a mattress without handles? You have to do that weird thing where you use your head as a third arm as you sort of nudge it with your face. Take the handles as a blessing

Made in the UK

These are made and manufactured in the UK, meaning that they all meet the same exceptional quality and durability that we expect from genuine UK manufacturing.
