The Country Living Haldon Mattress is a product from the new Country Living brand which aims to tackle the upper quality segment currently dominated by the likes of Feather & Black, Dunlopillo and Tempur. The new Haldon mattress certainly has plenty of interesting features so let's break them down by segment and see what has appeal.

Let's start with the base layer, that's the bottom part of the mattress and the bit that gives the product the support necessary for your joints to have measured and contoured relief. In the Haldon you get an impressive 2100 pocket springs (in the super king size then reducing depending on size), these pocket springs are easily one of the better performing support layers that money can buy having consistently beaten reflex foam and open coil springs to offer better zoned support that contours to your body giving relief where you need it regardless of sleeping position.

The tension of these springs is variable, giving you the opportunity to choose between a medium or firm tension, of which your preference will generally be dictated by body type, size and how you sleep. We typically recommend medium as a one-size-fits-all approach however you may want to consider the firm variant if you are of a larger build, or need additional firmness due to specific back and neck requirements. Regardless of the tension chosen, the pocket springs have fantastic edge to edge support with great roll together prevention allowing an independent and unrivalled sleep solution.

Onto the comfort layer and in keeping with its price point you receive a deep and generous layer of wool fillings that prove to be supremely soft and breathable. The breathability of the wool mates excellently with the pocket springs to generate airflow through the mattress which will help regulate body temperature and keep you cool. The result is a great all season mattress that is suitable for all times of the year, allowing you to sleep deeper and for longer. Additional benefits to that comfort layer of wool also lie in its softness which when paired with your choice of firmness in the base layer, will work hand in hand to deliver an experience that is good for your back and overall body while also feeling like you are sleeping on a soft cloud of comfort, it's great. 

Reasons to Buy

They don't make mattresses like this anymore, this really is built from exquisite materials that will deliver a quality nights sleep day after day.

The wool is actually hand-teased lambswool which is extra soft and stretchy and finds an ideal placement in a mattress. Typically not used in mattresses due to the higher cost, however, this is a no-compromise product that chooses only the best.

The pocket springs offer fantastic body contouring support, its my favourite personal support layer and one that always performs well.

Reasons to Avoid

Price point is very steep and will alienate most of the market. The niche status of this mattress doesn't make it a bad buy however and for those looking for the best nights sleep without compromise, there's a lot of quality that justifies the price.

Lead time currently in excess of 3 months due to the hand built nature of the product, understandable since these aren't mattresses that are kept on a rack, however perhaps inconvenient for those that are looking for a mattress sooner rather than later.

Key Performance Indicators

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 wizard 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.


  • 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.

What Makes The Country Living Haldon Mattress Great?

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.

3 rows of hand side stitching

Hand side stitching is a true mark of quality found in the upper-quality segment of mattresses. The process is very labor intensive as it involves attaching the side panel of the mattress to the pocket spring support layer found within a mattress helping to give better edge support and preventing roll-off.

Rest easy with our 1-year guarantee

Comes with our 40-Night Sleep Guarantee

The 40 night sleep guarantee is great as it allows you to exchange the product if you are not completely satisfied. This was one of the final challenges for online retailers to overcome comparable to traditional bricks and mortar where you can trial the product in store. Buy with confidence on this model.
