Tests & Verdict

Here we collect tests, guides and product reviews so that you can create a picture of what others think about the product. This analysis and review is based on my experience and 12+ years of industry insight.

Ultra-premium from a exclusive range unique to Dreams comes an amazing 4450 pocket springs that will contour to each and every part of your body.

Both soft and medium options available to satisfy both markets.

Price point and delivery times both good considering the quality on offer.

All UK sizes available at time of writing.

There are those that prefer traditional toppers to pillow tops and as such pillow tops can be somewhat divisive. Personally, I find them great provided you rotate in line with manufacturer care guide instructions. Failure to follow rotation guidelines may result in uneven settlement which creates dipping. Dipping is more of a risk when you have effectively two comfort layers instead of one. There is reward, but risk too so make sure you keep on top of it.

Why our sleep experts loved it

Today we're looking at something really special. The Natures Finest 4450 Pillow Top Mattress is one of the more popular in the distinguished and well-regarded Flaxby range and made by renowned Harrison Spinks on behalf of Dreams.

When it comes to making a good mattress a few things must hold true in the support and comfort layers of a mattress, and being priced as keenly as this one, it's going to be important Flaxby get it right. Let's dive in and see what they've put together underneath that luxurious mattress cover...

Starting with the support layer and we're working with an impressive 4450 individual pocket springs, including exclusive DNAir pocket springs. This looks to be a combination hybrid between traditional pocket springs and a firm of micro spring layer that will sit above. The benefit of a model like the proposed is that you get more springs, more bounce back and more support. The slight downside to this set up may come in the form of it's weight whereby the more springs you add to the mattress the heavier it becomes. This is compounded by the recommendation to rotate head to toe regularly to help ensure adequate and even settlement of springs and fillings. That said, Flaxby have covered for this eventuality by including quality grips on both sides of the mattress to help facilitate turning in a more convenient manner. Definitely do not be put off by the weight, it's the price you pay for quality.

Furthermore the support layer comes in a variety of different firmness grades, ensuring that this mattress really is suitable for everyone.

Onto the comfort layer and you have a sumptuous pillow top and upper layer made up of generous helpings of Natural cotton, wool & hemp fillings. While exact quantities of each are not provided, it is clear from pictures and depth that we are dealing with generous quantities of all. Dreams do not make specific mention of anti-allergy, nor breathability but traditionally with this natural makeup it is not uncommon to find the mattress breathable and thereby cooling, preventing you from getting too hot while you sleep, and also proving to be hypoallergenic. It's something we've reached out to the supplier to find out and will update this review when we have further clarification.

For the icing on the cake, this mattress comes with an impress 5 year guarantee which will help inspire further confidence for the consumer. After all, with the average life expectancy of a mattress pegged at around 7 years, you're getting near lifetime protection against defects or other issues which may crop up. That said, from a brand as reliable and well known as flaxby, the likelihood remains slim. Regardless though, the guarantee represents the confidence that both the retailer and supplier both have in what is sure to be a customer favourite.

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.

I did a lot of research to find the right mattress. After a lengthy period hunting, I came across this model within the Flaxby range. It has everything that my partner and I were looking for. We had put up with our previous mattress for far too long so we decided to make an investment. We have not been disappointment at all. Considering that this only comes in either a medium/firm or firm, I was surprised at just how comfortable the medium/firm actually is. We sink into it. The pillow top does help. We've only had the mattress a few nights and know that we are getting the best sleep ever as it is a world famous Harrison Spinks. The mattress is a lot taller than our old one, and I was worried that the sheets wouldn't fit as a result and we would have to by king size sheets, but everything fits perfectly. Oh, aches and pains in my neck have vanished. Suffering with pains when you wake up, then do yourself a favour and get a Flaxby. You will not be disappointed. Hand made is BEST made.

For a handmade mattress, this is an amazing mattress, unfortunately it doesn't completely fit my daughter's double bed, it's like it's slightly smaller than a double mattress, it falls slightly shorter in length and width. (By an inch or so). Also, where it has the topper part on it, the mattress protectors and fitted sheets don't fit or sit well on it. This being said, the comfort, well that is great, my daughter can finally sleep well, she suffers with hypermobility and she is finally sleeping without pain in her joints.

Having tried countless mattresses in the past, nothing compares to the indulgence experienced with the Flaxby Masters Guild 4450 Pillow Top Mattress. The unique DNAir springs provide not just support but a heavenly sink-in feeling that instantly soothes any aches. However, I must admit, I did find the mattress to be a bit on the firm side initially, but it gradually adapts to your body's contours. Just don't expect instant softness!

Jolly good purchase this Flaxby Masters Guild 4450 Pillow Top Mattress The overall comfort it gives is splendid. Its the pillow top add-on that makes me feel like Im sleeping on a cloud However, it did produce a subtle farm-like smell at first due to the natural wool but it gradually faded away. Quite satisfied

Does the Flaxby Nature's Finest 4450 Pillow Top Mattress have a temperature regulating system like the other cooling mattresses do? I get night sweats so I want to make sure that this is cooling and not heating BecUse it has wool in the filling.

Answer: The Flaxby Nature's Finest 4450 Pillow Top Mattress is ideal for keeping you at the right temperature throughout the night.

The fillings consist of wool, natural cotton and hemp, all of which are excellent at helping to wick away moisture and keep you cool.

How do I remove the body indentations from the pillow top

Answer: You cannot remove the impressions on the mattress, as this is natural settlement as the mattress has confirmed to your body. This is something that is expected and happens on all mattresses, but with a pillowtop mattress this is more visible.Many thanks
