Why our sleep experts loved it

Indulging in the luxury of a restful night's sleep is so much more than just closing your eyes and drifting off. It involves a harmonious blend of comfort, support, and temperature control, all perfectly aligned to your individual needs. Dream Team's Ellesmere Pocket Sprung Mattress strives to be the answer to these requirements. It targets a niche audience of back sleepers, offering a very firm comfort grade that provides exceptional support. This mattress stands apart from its contemporaries by promising an experience akin to resting on 'a million tiny springs'. It does so by combining the traditional allure of pocket springs and certified British wool with its innovative Platinum 3D™ technology. Exciting, isn’t it? The question now is: does it deliver on its promises? Let's find out.

How we tested

We tested the Dream Team Ellesmere Pocket Sprung Mattress rigorously over a period of several weeks, exploring its performance under different degrees of external factors such as temperature and humidity. We catered to both back and stomach sleepers, experiencing first-hand how the mattress adapted to different sleeping postures. We took note of how it handled motion transfer, comfort, temperature regulation, support and firmness, amongst other factors. Careful attention was paid to its response to different weight distributions and individual body forms.

Design and features

Ellesmere is masterly crafted in the UK, featuring numerous intriguing layers, each serving a unique purpose. On top, we have an invitingly soft-touch damask followed by a layer of certified British wool. Known for its breathability and temperature regulation, locally sourced British wool helps keep you cool in summer and snug in winter. What's fascinating is Platinum 3D™ layer, an innovative introduction by the Dream Team, designed to simulate the feel of countless tiny springs.

The core of this mattress is a system of individually pocketed springs. They operate independently to contour your body and absorb shock, thus reducing disturbance from a partner. Maintaining this symphony of layers in their place is a series of traditional tufts. This double-sided mattress provides an opportunity to flip it over when needed, thus potentially extending its lifespan.

Comfort of the mattress

The Ellesmere is unapologetically firm, implementing a very firm comfort grade but fascinatingly, it still succeeded in cushioning the body with its individually wrapped springs and the topping wool layer. Most impressive was the Platinum 3D™ layer, which introduced a springiness that seemed to transform the hard firmness into a well cushioned support.

Suitability

True to my anticipation, this mattress excelled for back and stomach sleepers. Its firmness provided impressive lumbar support, keeping the spine perfectly aligned. However, for side sleepers or those with hourglass figures seeking sinkage, this mattress may seem too rigid, potentially leading to discomfort over time. It fills a niche requirement and serves brilliantly where it's intended. For back and stomach sleepers requiring solid support, this could be a game-changer!

What customers thought

Customer feedback shed more light on its brilliance. One customer praised it stating: "Really love our new mattress, we had many great night’s sleep as not too firm, which was just what we wanted. Super comfortable, breathable and very cosy." The customer experiences mirrored our own, reinforcing the Ellesmere's credentials as a robust mattress catering perfectly to those seeking firm support.

The verdict

With the Ellesmere Pocket Sprung Mattress, Dream Team caters superbly to a niche audience who often get overlooked. For back and stomach sleepers yearning for firm support combined with luxurious comfort and impressive temperature regulation, this mattress seems to fulfil their wishes. My reservations, however, lie with its very firm comfort grade that won't suit all. Despite its niche outlook, customers who swear by firm support could find it an adept bedding solution. It is a perfect testament to British craftsmanship in the bedding industry, combining tradition with innovation successfully. For those who can truly exploit its offerings, the Ellesmere could certainly be the stuff that dreams are made of!

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.

Just wanted to drop a quick note about the Ellesmere mattress. As a back sleeper, the firmness has been a game changer for me. Couple that with the pocket springs' individualized support and I'm waking up feeling well-rested and free from discomfort. However, stomach sleepers may not find it as cozy. So heads up there.

Judging from my experience, the Dream Team Ellesmere Pocket Sprung Mattress provided exceptional support with its very firm comfort grade. The individual pocket springs truly cushioned my body and made for a comfortable sleep environment. However, the mattress was a bit too firm for my liking, as I am a side sleeper.
