Why our sleep experts loved it

In the realm of sleep, comfort and quality cannot be underestimated. One essential factor of achieving rejuvenating sleep is finding the right mattress. With numerous options to choose from, the process can be daunting. Here, we explore the Flaxby Masters Guild 14950 Pocket Sprung Mattress, a high-end mattress designed to provide a luxurious sleeping experience. This mattress combines the comfort of plush micro springs with the durability of traditional materials such as British wool, hemp, flax, cotton, and mohair.

How we tested

The mattress was subjected to a series of tests over several weeks. Factors considered included its comfort, adaptability to body contours, ease of movement, and durability. To evaluate its temperature regulation abilities, it was tested in varying climate conditions. We also assessed the convenience of the mattress based on its weight, ease of rotation, and its practicality for regular use.

Design and Features

The Flaxby Masters Guild 14950 is a blend of traditional craftsmanship meets innovation providing a comfortable and supportive experience. It consists of layers of micro springs that react to your body's movements and contours, offering enhanced pressure relief and excellent comfort. The mattress features a sumptuous pillow top adding extra padding. Flaxby has included a variety of traditional materials including British wool, hemp, flax, cotton and mohair into the mattress fillings that ensure breathability and moisture-wicking properties. This confluence of materials is designed to ensure a comfortable sleeping temperature regardless of the weather. No glue is used in the assembly of this mattress, and it features 100% recyclable Cortec™ springs, making it an eco-friendly choice for those environmentally conscious. Furthermore, the Flaxby Masters Guild 14950 reinforces its durability with three rows of side stitching, which increase edge-to-edge support, and is traditionally tufted to enhance the mattress's lifespan. The mattress offers a soft or medium comfort grade option, catering to varying preferences between individuals.

Mattress Comfort

The Flaxby Masters Guild 14950 elevates comfort to a luxurious level with its well-structured design. Despite its firm supportive structure, the mattress gives a comfortable, soft feeling due to the pillow top feature. The micro springs and layers of natural fillings ensure that the mattress provides support where needed most. As a result, the mattress provides a well-balanced combination of firm support and soft comfort.

Suitability

This mattress is suitable for side sleepers and those with a lower BMI than average due to its soft tension option. It’s also an excellent choice for people with an hourglass figure as it provides additional sinkage from the support layer. However, the mattress does require regular rotation due to its single-sided nature, which may pose a challenge due to its considerable weight. Accordingly, individuals with back or joint issues may find it difficult to manoeuvre. However, its 5-year guarantee and 100-Night Comfort Exchange policy offer reassurance if the mattress does not suit you.

What Customers Thought

The customer feedback on the Flaxby Masters Guild 14950 is generally positive. Many customers appreciate the mattress's comfort, with several stating that it has greatly improved their sleep quality. Those suffering from back issues reported an improvement in their condition, attributing it to the mattress's support. Although most customers found the mattress comfortable on arrival, some noted that the mattress took a few weeks to break in thoroughly. It appears that the mattress becomes more comfortable over time, conforming more effectively to the individual's body contours. However, a few customers have pointed out that the mattress tends to sag in certain areas over time, despite following the manufacturer's care instructions. A few also noticed a significant dip in the middle of the mattress, especially for the zip and link option.

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.

This Flaxby Masters Guild 14950 Pocket Sprung Mattress is remarkably comfortable The layers of micro springs truly improve your sleep without disturbance. I absolutely appreciate the natural fillings that add softness and breathability. However, one minor drawback is this mattress can be heavy to rotate as per the recommended care instructions. But overall, definitely a worthy investment for a refreshing sleep.

Underpinning my satisfaction with the Flaxby Masters Guild 14950 Pocket Sprung Mattress is the supreme comfort it provides, such a massive step up from my old mattress. The extra support has been a godsend, especially for my lower back. Being a side sleeper, the soft tension works wonderfully for me. Just wish it was a tad easier to rotate, owing to its heaviness. Other than that, it's a dream come true

We bought the back to nature super king as we always buy a quality bed and this seemed to be a good choice,then a few weeks before delivery we where informed that they had redesigned the mattress and had to wait an extra eight weeks. One word of notice these are the heaviest mattress I have ever come across and you need to sting people to move it.

Ultimate comfort. It took a few nights to get used to my new bed and its the best thing since sliced bread! Extremely comfortable, supportive and luxurious. Its quite deep so had to buy some extra deep fitted sheets. My only concern is how it will feel in the summer as its quite a warm bed.

Questions and Answers About The Flaxby Masters Guild 14950 Pocket Sprung Mattress

Prospective customers had the following questions about the product

davebw
I note in the reviews that after 2/3/4 years the bed can slump. or get lumpy. Is this slump or lumpiness covered by the guarantee and if it is what would the solution be please?

Answer: With any mattress within time natural settlement will occur which can be mistaken for an issue with the product, but this is normal behaviour as the mattress settles to your body.However if this is excessive and exceeds manufacture tolerances then this would be covered under the guarantee.Many thanks

Whats the difference between the zipped and non-zipped versions? Does that mean the topper zips off? Thanks.

Answer: The difference is the mattress separates in to two sections length ways (north to south). The mattress is delivered as two sections to help with ease of manoeuvring into the property, the mattress can then be zipped together to make a complete mattress.Many thanks
