Premium support and comfort layers both sit at the high quality end of products while offering a long-term guarantee.

Great for back and stomach sleepers, although some side sleepers might struggle.

Side sleeping won't be optimal for average BMI consumers.

Price point will exclude large portions of the market from being able to take advantage.

As it is a custom made product, there is a longer lead time than that of an average mattress.

Why our sleep experts loved it

The Country Living Dalby Mattress is a high-quality, handcrafted product as part of a Dreams and Country Living collaboration that is designed to provide beyond exceptional comfort provided you can pick up the price tag. One of the key features of this mattress is its 1197 pocket spring system, which is hand-nested and hand-centre tied for maximum durability and support. The pocket springs are designed to respond independently to your body's movements, providing targeted support where you need it most. These springs sit at the premium end of the market and outperform lesser quality open coil and foam based options. 

Moving on from the support later and onto the comfort layer, the Country Living Dalby Mattress also has a layer made of soft natural fibres, including lambswool, cotton, cashmere, and silk. These fibres work together to create a soft, plush feel that helps to relieve pressure points and promote relaxation. This deep layer is also filled with natural fillings, which add an extra layer of cushioning and support. The good times with this layer don't stop there however, as the fillings are all inherently breathable by design, allowing air to flow better throughout the product and ensure that you stay warm, but not hot resulting in the perfect all-season nights sleep.

One of the key benefits of theDalby is its firm comfort grade. This firmness level is ideal for people who prefer a firmer feel and need additional support for their back and joints. It's also a good choice for people who sleep on their stomach or back, as it provides the necessary support to keep the spine in proper alignment. When we look at the tension, this firmness is normally derived from the base layer of wound pocket springs, and will likely not be suitable for side sleepers in this instance provided they are of average BMI. For heavier people, side sleeping will be achievable making it suitable for combination sleeping.

In addition to its comfort and support features, the Dalby is also made with 100% natural Belgian damask and is hand-tufted with wool tufts for added durability, which, when paired with the two rows of hand side stitching, helps show just how much attention to detail and thought has gone into this premium mattress.

When it comes to the brand, the Country Living brand is made in the UK and comes with a 40-Night Sleep Guarantee, allowing you to try out the mattress in the comfort of your own home before committing to it. It also comes with a 5-year manufacturer's guarantee, giving you peace of mind and added protection for your investment.

Overall, the Country Living Dalby Mattress is a high-quality, handcrafted bed that is designed to provide exceptional comfort and support. Its combination of pocket springs, natural fibres, and firm comfort grade make it a great choice for people who need extra support and prefer a firmer feel. Its handmade construction and 5-year manufacturer's guarantee make it a worthwhile investment for anyone looking for a long-lasting, comfortable mattress.

Suitability

*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.

Performance

  • 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.

Odour

Delighted by the comfort and quality of the Dalby Mattress. The firmness is just right for a back sleeper like myself. Natural fillings are a bonus for seasonal comfort. However, it might not be the best for side sleepers.

How do the hand-nested and hand-centre tied springs contribute to the mattress's durability?

Why is hand-tufting important?

Answer: Hand-tufting with wool tufts serves to secure the natural fillings in place. This prevents the fillings from shifting or clumping, ensuring a uniform sleeping surface and prolonging the lifespan of the mattress.
