Why Our Sleep Experts Loved It

becky says

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. 

How does it feel?

Firmness of The Country Living Haldon Mattress depends on bodyweight. Adjust your weight below to get an indication of how it may feel. Remember though that firmness is entirely subjective.

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 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.

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

  • 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.

Odour

  • 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?

1760 calico pocket springs

Pocket springs are always my default go-to when it comes to recommendations surrounding support systems. See, pocket springs just do it better thanks to their individual and pocketed nature they are able to contour to your body better, reacting to each and every movement your body makes and allowing for full zoned support. Generally perform better than poorer reflex foam and open coil spring units.

Has a medium or firm comfort grade

Medium tension mattresses are suitable for the vast majority of people as they are not too soft, nor too firm. This firmness can offer a good amount of back and neck support while still being soft enough to prove suitable for side sleepers. The key benefit for this type of layer is that it's sort of a "one size fits all" approach that gives your body the contouring and support necessary while remaining soft and squishy.

Hand-nested and hand-centre tied

Hand-nested mattresses are made with each coil individually nested in fabric pockets. This construction provides superior support by evenly distributing weight across the mattress. The coils are also hand-tied at the centre, ensuring that they don't shift or become dislodged over time. This construction results in a mattress that is extremely durable and long lasting.

Hand-teased soft natural lambswool fibres

Wool is a great option for the comfort layer of mattresses for a number of reasons. First, it is breathable enough to allow air to flow sufficiently to ensure great all-season long cooling that won't have you too hot, or too cold. Additional to this you have other advantages like durability, flexibility, flame and water resistance. Ultimately wool is a sustainable and renewable option that is environmentally friendly and supremely comfortable.

Natural fillings keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter

Natural fillings for mattresses, such as wool, cotton, and latex, are known for their ability to regulate body temperature. This means that they can keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter, making them a great option for year-round use. Additionally, natural fillings are often more breathable than synthetic options, which can further help to regulate body temperature.

Hand-tufted with wool tufts

There are a few benefits to hand tufting, namely that the procedure creates a more uniform comfort and feel while also increasing overall support. Further to this hand tufting reduces bounce slightly creating a more predictable sleep surface that increases durability.

100% natural Belgian damask

A Belgian Damask cover is a type of mattress cover that is made from a blend of cotton and polyester. This blend of materials makes the cover very durable and resistant to wear and tear. The cover is also designed to be comfortable and breathable, making it an ideal choice for those who suffer from allergies or respiratory problems. 

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.

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.

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.

Rest easy with our 1-year guarantee

A one year guarantee is suitable for many as the vast majority of problems that may occur often do so within that first year. At the same time, more and more retailers are beginning to offer multi-year warranty and guarantees although these often come at a slightly higher price point on average.
