You typically sleep on your mattress every night. It’s only natural that you want something that feels comfortable, yet provides appropriate support for your back and neck. Enter the Nature's Finest 14450 Pillow Top Mattress by Flaxby and sold through Dreams.

Flaxby is probably a manufacturer you have heard before, but for those that haven’t, it’s a subdivision of Harrison Spinks who are renowned for their luxury sleep products and have produced their fair share of quality mattresses over the years.

Flaxby have released numerous different mattresses within the range over the last 12months, however, this is their most premium at time of writing. Featuring an impressive deep and soft pillow top along with a combination of egyption cotton, wool, mohair and silk it is clear that Flaxby are going for prestige and luxury with this particular product. The benefits of the natural fillings are that they are antibacterial by nature while also being breathable, allowing for natural cooling effects which should help keep you at the right temperature while you sleep.

Onto the support layer and this mattress features a combination of Cortec and DNAir pocket springs. For those unaware, you won’t really find any better than this. The pocket springs are well-proven and established in providing the best body contouring that you can get, surpassing the quality of traditional spring units and also reflex foam which would typically be used as a base in roll-up mattresses. The result is a base layer that will stand the test of time and perform for years to come.

The cover features an impressive blend of luxury wool within the damask cover which helps ensure maximum durability and protection against wear while also being soft and comfortable due to its great breathability and temperature regulation.

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.

Ease of Use

  • Turning handles
  • Mattresses typically need to be rotated frequently and having turning handles can be massively beneficial, particularly in larger sizes which can become fairly heavy.


  • 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.

Brand Rating

  • Overall Brand Rating
  • This is based on community driven customer reviews tied to product reviews and grouped together at a brand level to produce a score.

What Makes The Flaxby Natures Finest 14450 Pillow Top Mattress Great?

Rotate Regularly - Rotate head to toe weekly for the first three months, then every month thereafter

Your mattress should be rotated on a regular basis as this is the easiest way to prolong and increase the longevity of your mattress. The main benefits to regularly rotating your mattress is the continued support and comfort while reducing any risk of sagging that may otherwise occur

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.

8 handles

Do not dismiss handles as unnecessary when purchasing a deep mattress like this. Here's the thing people forget, you need to rotate and flip this mattress in line with the care guide that you receive. Typically this is every 1-3 months. That means you have to move a fairly hefty lump and without handles you have to do that sort of weird shuffle while using your head as a weird, third-arm to assist. By including 8 handles, you've got the ability to quickly and easily rotate and flip to your hearts content, ensuring good settlement of fillings and ensuring a long mattress lifespan.

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.

Comfort grade - medium or soft

A Medium firmness mattress is the most common build offered due to the range of suitability offered in such a mattress. This type of mattress will be better suited toward averagely weighted people, while lighter people should opt for a medium-light, and heavier people considering a medium-firm.

5-year guarantee

This is an exceptional guarantee that is fairly uncommon within the industry, this shows that the retailer and supplier both have huge confidence in the product that they are selling. Any problems in the first 5 years? Call them and they will sort it.

100% recyclable Cortec pocket spring unit

Cortec is a type of spring that's been used in mattresses for many years. It's a synthetic pocket spring, just like the ones in your entry and midpoint mattresses. The difference? Cortec springs are made with a synthetic polymer which offers a fully recyclable support layer which can provide tight and contoured comfort and support.

Traditionally hand tufted for secure alignment and three rows of side stitching for superior edge support

Hand tufting typically makes a mattress feel firmer due to how the stitching from the cover carries through the mattresses layers. It is a great way to keep everything tight and together within the different mattress layers and acts as an increased tension providing better back and neck support.

Sumptuous pillow top for added comfort

Mattresses traditionally have a support layer with a comfort layer on top. Pillow top mattresses come with a further comfort layer that sits on top of the traditional comfort layer to give additional softness and a deeper nights sleep. 

14450 individual pocket springs, including exclusive DNAir pocket springs

Pocket springs are probably the best support layer you can get in a mattress helping to provide measured and even support across your body where you need it most. What's more, the unique feeling of pocket springs hugs each point of your body, offering contouring across each pressure point to relieve aches and pains. Lesser models will frequently include alternatives to pocket springs like open coil traditional springs and reflex foam. Do not be fooled, while pocket springs are often slightly more money than their counterparts, you are typically getting a better spring system and base layer.When it comes to pocket springs and the quality within, the more springs generally the better as the density will increase contouring ever-closer to your body as you sleep. That said, there is a point of diminishing returns at the 2000+ point. 1000-2000 is considered ideal.

Pure natural fillings including natural Egyption cotton, wool, mohair and silk and a luxurious chemical free sleeping surface

Natural materials like wool, cashmere and silk are often used in higher quality mattresses. Their benefits are numerous with many preferring the supreme softness on offer while others appreciate the environmentally friendly offering. Another core benefit of natural layers is that they are extremely breathable and as a result create a safe, hygienic and temperature regulated nights sleep.

14450 pocket springs (king)

Customer Reviews For The Flaxby Natures Finest 14450 Pillow Top Mattress

Based on 49 reviews
Expensive mattress

After trying all the mattresses in the shop, I came back to this one every time. It was expensive for me but with interest free credit it was doable. We had not charged our mattress for 20 years so felt the investment was worth it. So after a difficult transition into the home,it took 3 adult males to carry it up the stairs,i have now slept in it for 3 weeks. I have a cartilage knee problem and my previous hard mattress with a dip in it, offered it no respite from spending the night lodged harshly against it. On my new mattress I am sleeping well, it is far softer than the previous one and offers my knee the support it needs. I also had back pain as I settled down in the previous one that has now gone too. The new mattress is also warmer than the last one. It is much larger too, as it is a mattress with an added topper, my sheets barely fit now but they stay in place because you sink into the soft expanses of this mattress and really do not move much during the night. Do I want to get out of bed in the morning, the answer is no. I am very pleased with my purchase and should have done it years ago.

Gorgeously soft but sags in the middle

I love the softness of this bed it feels gorgeous when you lie on it; I’m a side sleeper so wanted to take some pressure off my shoulder for going for a more expensive/softer mattress. Me and my hubby tried this mattress in the shop and we loved it; but on the shop model, one side is soft and the other side is medium(you can buy them like this in the king size and above but not the double) We ordered the soft version in a double and when it came it was gorgeously soft as the shop model was but dipped horrendously in the middle causing us to roll together. as the shop model had a firmer side and a softer side for demo purposes it didn’t do that- giving a false representation of what a full sized double in a soft would be like. Needles to say regretfully weve had to use the comfort guarantee and changed to a TEMPUR CoolTouch Cloud Luxe Mattress - in Medium Soft

Flaxby bed made in heaven,like sleeping on a cloud

We already have a tempur bed, And although recommended as one of the top beds to have we decided that a foam mattress was no longer for us. After spending several hours in store trying various sprung beds we settled on the Flaxby. The team in store at pur Cambridge branch were outstanding. They explained in detailed the various bed types and style's and also which firmness we should have. Ordering ans delivery were a breeze, the delivery team were very considerate wearing over shoe's and face masks. And provided all necessary advice on how to maintain the bed. From our 1st night sleep on the Flaxby we have woken feeling fully refreshed each day, its so cozey especially with the cold winter nights that the only problem is that we dont ever want to get out of bed now.

Luxurious Comfort

Having suffered from back pain and restless sleep I wanted to invest in a quality mattress and was drawn to this mattress because of its use of natural fibres and support from the host of pocket springs.It has ticked every box and both my sleep quality has improved and I have no back ache. The workmanship in the mattress is obvious and is good value for money. This is the heaviest mattress (King) I have ever had and turning it top to toe needs two people. There is no give in it to negotiate through narrow door openings or stairs but it squeezed into the bedroom and has given me sleep like childhood - thoroughly recommended

Most Comfortable Mattress ever

The quality of this mattress is second to none you can tell that is hand crafted such quality could not be achieved by machine. Since buying it both my wife and I have never slept better. One thing worth mentioning is that it is very deep we had to order some extra deep fitted sheets. Yes it’s expensive but the benefits of a goods night sleep make it well worth the cost. We have now had that mattress for around a month and experienced no issues whatsoever.

So very comfortable

we chose this super king-size mattress because it's zipped in the centre giving us the option of different firmness on either side, so glad we did as my partner who has had back surgery love's the soft side, while I love the medium side. We always used to wakeup in the night, kept turning over to try and get comfortable, both usually sleeping on our sides, but now we both lay on our backs and sleep through till the morning

Best mattress ever

This is our second Flaxby mattress due to a flood we had to replace the first one. Having already known how comfortable they are we knew we had to get the exact same one, the soft tension one. It’s like sleeping in a cocoon, so soft but still supportive. I can’t recommend it too much, if you like comfort then this is the mattress for you.

Best mattress you can buy!

Fantastic quality mattress, checking fit bit sleep patterns this mattress has improved how I sleep 100%. No more restlessness. With intense weight training, the mattress has made the stiffness and muscle fatigue disappear! I’m amazed at what a difference a good quality mattress an make to my quality of life. Best purchase I’ve ever made.

Mr Philip Carlin

We bought this bed a few months ago I still have not had really comfortable nights sleep because the buttons on the topper seem to have sort plastic going thru them which keep sticking into my hips all the time which are very uncomfortable I should have gone back to store but it closed down to weeks after we bought our bed.

Pure Luxury

The feeling when you lay on this mattress is like no other. Sinking in to the luxurious pillowtop will be sure to relax your mind and body and make you feel as though you are floating on a cloud. Perfect for anyone who loves a sumptuous mattress and the natural fillings help keep you cool and comfortable during your sleep.

Heavenly nights

I bought this mattress after asking the assistant at your Nottingham branch which mattress is the one featured on a TV programme. It was quite an 'eye opener' seeing how the mattress was made. As my husband and I are now in our twilight years we decided to splash out and buy this model. What a good decision!

Very comfortable mattress

I waited until we gave the mattress a fair try. It is very comfortable. We both usually prefer different mattresses, but this suits us well. Having arthritis, a good mattress is essential. We used the scanning machine, and this was the top recommendation. I would definately choose this again.

Extremely Comfortable

Extremely comfortable mattress. Very well made, and the pillow top is a wonderful addition that exudes luxury.. I've had the mattress a couple of months now and am having excellent sleeps... I have a medium firmness, which I find perfect. Overall, Very happy with my purchase

Like sleeping on a cloud, absolutely perfect

Worth. Every. Penny. I wish i'd invested in a good mattress sooner, not had a bads night sleep since having it and can now sleep on my front, back or side in total comfort. LOVE IT. Also worth noting- is a really deep mattress so you need extra deep fitted sheets for it


This has to be the best mattress I’ve ever felt. It has a lovely softness but you can feel the support around you. There really is a feeling of pure luxury and I’m also a big fan that it is completely naturally filled as this has helped with the heat issue at night.

Very comfortable

We received this just over 2 weeks ago and it took no getting used to. We chose a soft mattress because my wife has some problems with her back and finds that a soft mattress enables her to sleep better and we are both finding the mattress very comfortable.

Best nights sleep ever!

We bought this mattress a few weeks ago after much deliberation. I can honestly say I’ve had the best nights sleep ever since making this choice. When you think how much time you spend in bed it’s worth every penny!

Top quality ...and sooo comfortable

Had this delivered a couple of weeks ago..You can tell it’s top quality and with great support and comfort. We went for a split soft/medium mattress which is perfect and suits both of our preferences.

Excellent comfort

We bought this quality mattress about a month ago and we are both very pleased with it. It’s extremely comfortable and we seem to be sleeping a lot better. Definitely worth the investment.

Super Comfy!

The mattress is super comfy and feels like you’re sleeping on air. Moulds to your position whilst sleeping. First time I have ever been able to sleep on my back, normally a tommy sleeper.

Took a while to adjust

Iitial it was installed on an open slate base. This created back problems as the mattress sunk in between. This has to be on a flat Base to fully enjoy. It is finally now comfortable.

What a team !

Stockport Store sales Liz and Delivery team Adam and Owen are a credit to your company. All went above and beyond with service. Very happy with our Harrisons Flaxby 14450.

Pure luxury

Have never slept on such a luxurious mattress. So comfortable, wake up refreshed from such a good nights sleep. Really thinking of getting one for kids bed.


I brought this a few weeks ago and its the best mattress I've brought. Always thought a firm mattress suited me until I tried this medium mattress.

Most comfortable mattress ever

This is the most comfortable mattress I have ever slept on. Feels soft initially but is very supportive.....no longer waking up with backache

The most comfortable bed ever!

This bed is so comfortable and breathes so well, makes us look forward to going to bed every night.Its like a cocoon of luxury.Love it.


Very comfortable and good value for money. The quality of the mattress is excellent. I would recommend anyone to buy a dream mattress

So pleased with this mattress

I have never had such a good night's sleep. It is just like sleeping on air but with just the right amount of support

Comfy as long as I sleep alone

This is a lovely mattress but when my husband who is of average size gets in then I feel as if I’m sleeping on slope
