Why Our Sleep Experts Loved It

becky says

Sleep on the Flaxby Nature's Finest 8150 DNAir Mattress and feel your body sink into a luxurious, natural and chemical free sleeping surface. This mattress features 8150 pocket springs (our personal favourite) that provide unmatched support and comfort while turning with the seasons to keep you cool in summer and cosy in winter. 

The springs are hand tufted for ultimate support and there are two rows of side stitching that ensure the edges remain sturdy. 

When it comes to mattresses, it doesn't get much better than this. After all, the average pocket spring mattress normally only features 1000 springs and with this particular support layer, the more generally, the better.

The mattress also features a double-sided comfort layer which is beneficial for a few reasons. To start, the main benefit is that you now have twice the surface area through flipping, ensuring your mattress stays fresher for longer with less wearing out that would otherwise occur through a single sided comfort layer. Furthermore, double sided has the added benefit of allowing the supplier to include a different comfort within each layer, for example, dual season where one side features a different material to the other.

The Flaxby Natures Finest 8150 DNAir Mattress features an impressive 5-year guarantee. When you consider the average life span of a mattress comes in at around 7-8 years, this means that this luxury mattress comes with a guarantee that will last the majority of the products lifespan which is encouraging for yourself and a testament to the sheer amount of confidence the manufacturer and retailer both have in their product.

Key Performance Indicators KPI question mark
Of The Flaxby Natures Finest 8150 DNAir Mattress
Our Key Performance Indicators are produced using a combination of specification-heavy algoritmic data points and user reviews.

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.


*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.


  • 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.

What Makes The Flaxby Natures Finest 8150 DNAir Mattress Great?

8150 pocket springs (King)

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. 

100% recyclable Cortec pocket 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.

Luxurious, natural & chemical free sleeping surface

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.

Traditionally hand tufted for secure alignment and two 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.

Turn with the seasons to keep you cool in Summer and cosy in Winter

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

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.

Comfort Grade - Medium or Firm

Medium Firm is the optimal firmness for a mattress if you are looking for comfort but also suffer from some minor back problems. This is because this type of mattress will ease the amount of strain on your muscles but not in such a way to deter comfort, ensuring a great nights sleep

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.

2 rows of hand side stitching

Additional hand stitching around the sides of the mattress help ensure the product does not fray and tear with time. Double hand stitching speaks to the quality of the product.

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.

Customer Reviews For The Flaxby Natures Finest 8150 DNAir Mattress

Based on 306 reviews
Everyone loves it

My last bed was a supersized king divan style base with an orthopaedic mattress which I had for the last 15 years and it was a bit too large for the flat I moved into a few years ago so thought it time to change over to a double. I have always wanted a chunky wooden framed bed with a nice soft mattress & finally decided to take the plunge and ordered a frame off the web in the same style as my other bedroom furniture and then started looking for a mattress that I liked and found this one Dreams which sounded just right. I can tell you after spending 15 years sleeping on what might as well have been a rock the new mattress is like sleeping on a cloud. The mattress gives me a tremendous amount of support, yet it has a nice soft finish to it that I just sink into when I get into bed at night. It is beautifully finished with handles on all four sides making it easy to rotate even though it is quite a heavy mattress. My only wish is that I had spotted the Moore Wooden chunky bedframe on the Dreams website before I had ordered the frame that I did because that looks a lot sturdier that the one I bought is. I do have one small problem though and that is that it isnt only me that has fallen in love with the new mattress, so have the cats who spend the bulk of the day relaxing on it and get a bit disgruntled when it comes to bed time and I have to get into it but they soon find their way back onto it when they think I have fallen asleep. So it seems that it isnt only me who now get a great nights sleep on my new 6500 DNAir mattress! But prehaps I should have gone for the king size to accomopdate all of us.

Warmer and cooler handmade DNair mattress

Early days yet! However we can say that the mattress presents as very heavy and very well made and very sturdy in construction and made to a very high standard indeed. Appears built like the softest most comfortable tank imaginable. Had this for 4 ish weeks now and can state that we love the great sleep we now enjoy. My shoulders and hip pains have gone and my wifes hip pain also. Would recommend this mattress to everyone whom needs a medium firm mattress. No rolling off the edges as very supportive right up to and including the edges. No rolling together unless by our design Turning the mattress weekly for now without any concerns as it really does feel extremely well made with strong and soft materials used. Cant wait for summer to turn the mattress over and see if it wicks away the moisture and heat as this is advertised as a mattress designed to be warm (which it is) in the colder months and cooler in the warmer months. Expensive however for us more than worth the expense, what price uninterrupted peaceful good quality sleep? All the best John & Dora

Fabulous mattress and my back is in full agreement

We had decided to purchase a new mattress and were mindful of not only the quality, but also the materials used in its construction. I also needed correct support for my lower back and other joints, caused from high impact excessive sport over the years and unfortunately advancing age !!! We researched the market thoroughly, specifically as regards chemical usage and natural fibres. We then went to DREAMS in Torquay to find other information, 'test' our theories, and ask for advice, which was readily available from an excellent staff member called Jenny. We purchased the FLAXBY mattress. It was a straight choice between the Flaxby and a Harrison Spinks Mattress and we went with the Flaxby, then found it was made by Harrison Spinks anyway !!! The quality of our sleep pattern is vastly improved and I would highly recommend this mattress. You must remember the amount of time that you spend in bed and it is false economy to purchase an inferior and cheaper mattress, purely because of price. You get what you pay for in life and this mattress is well worth the extra cost.

The very best mattress we have ever had!

Sheer luxury! Would not have believed how much difference a mattress could make to a perfect night's sleep ... and another ..and another ... A beautiful looking product when we first put it onto the bed base. With bedclothes on, the bed is such a centre piece to the room. Never had to climb up so far to get into bed though :). The comfort, movement absorption and temperature are just spot on throughout the night. I frequently have found it difficult to sleep in different beds whenever we have travelled or visited friends, but I took to this one straight away - all down to the mattress, in my view. Oh, and watched a tv programme not long ago which showed how such a mattress is made at the factory - and I can absolutely feed back positively the craftsmen that their skills are so much valued now! Cheers.

Marked quality of life improvement

This is probably the best made mattress that money can buy. It is stitched expertly and designed and made very well indeed. The only problem I found was that one of the natural materials used had a smell. Most people cannot smell it after one day but I could, and still can, two weeks later, smell the sheep's wool. There are special chemicals that can permanently remove such smells when the wool is processed, that is why your wooled sweater does not smell like Shawn the Sheep. They could have used these. Having aired my grievance, I must however reiterate that this mattress is of fantastic quality and has made life much better for us. So if you have the nose of a bloodhound, leave it in a room for a few days and use a mattress protector, that should do it

Very disappointed

I have waited a number of months to give the bed a fair review. We tried the bed in store just after the first lockdown and used the computer service. This was a recommended bed and was not cheap The bed is extremely hot despite being made of natural fibres. The button feature is also extremely uncomfortable and I would not choose a bed with this feature again I have tried adding a topper but the bed is very deep and this means that sheets have to be flat rather than fitted. This is more comfortable but the bed is still hot Also I continue to have back ache when I sleep in this bed which I do not get in other beds My husband thinks the bed is Ok I am now sleeping in the spare room! A very expensive mistake!

Beautifully made and absolutely worth it.

Magnificent; expensive but extremely comfortable and getting more so every night! This mattress is appreciably thicker than my old one - probably as no-one has slept on it for years - but also lighter. I selected a pocket spring mattress (medium rather than firm) as I usually sleep on my side. It has 7118 pocket springs inside, so there is plenty of bounce. I would recommend one of these to anyone although it is not cheap. They say you get what you pay for, but what price is a good night's sleep? If it lasts 5 years (and I have no doubt at all that it will) that will cost less than 1 a night. Top-notch construction, sewing and finishing....worth it? Absolutely. I haven't been this comfy for at least 25 years.

Zip together feature & super comfortable

We decided on this mattress after testing in the DREAMS shop and using their instore Sleepmatch service. Pros: very deep and solid design that doesn't "sink in". Very comfortable and supportive. Zipper on all long sides on the single mattress to be able to zip onto another single mattress to create one (super) kingsize mattress. We have our own comfort level then zip it together to make one mattress on a large super kingsize bed. Very little to no disturbance when either partner moves on their side even when zipped together. My back is grateful every morning for a good night's sleep now. Cons: A bit heavy to lift when you change the bed sheets.

Flaxby Natures Finest = comfort supreme

I suffer with a bad back and went to see Dreams. They put me on this machine that helps specify what you need, after putting in my data and my adding I had some trouble with my lower back I was given a select list of beds. I chose the Flaxby 6500 model. It was a lot different from my original as I had used a memory foam for about 7 years. I am happy with the new mattress as it supports me and adds all the comfort I need in order to get a comfortable nights sleep, and now I am finding Im not waking up having not slept so well. So I think it does go to show you really do need to change a mattress sooner as we all change as we get older!

Comfiest Mattress EVER!!!!

We bought this mattress based on my sisters recommendation having had Tempur mattresses for the last 15 years so we were a bit hesitant about changing. we visited our local store and did the young lady in store carried out the sleep match test which is a great tool to use to ensure you get the perfect mattress to suit both me and my partner. there was no pushy sales tactics(i am in sales myself so) we were given the complete low down on how and what the mattress was made of -- 5 weeks on and no regrets cannot recommend it highly enough.. we love it , we got it when the sale was on and saved a lot of money so winner all round!!!

Best Mattress Ive owned!

Best mattress Ive ever owned! I went into store and used the sleepmatch service; this was one of the first mattresses recommended that I tried and I kept going back to it. I had a pocket sprung mattress prior and suffered with back ache every night so was a little dubious about purchasing another but so glad I did. This mattress is super supportive and comfortable, and easy to see and feel its made from high quality materials. I get a quality nights sleep every night and no longer wake with back ache and sore joints. Only slight annoyance is that theres no labels to identify which side is for summer and which is for winter.

No More Back Aches

Having suffered with back/neck problems for years and in need to replace our bed, we tried out several mattresses that Dreams recommended to us. Having tried out all the recommended mattresses my wife found this one gave her the comfort she was looking for, and I found it gave me the level of support I needed. After having slept on the mattress for a few nights, we found ourselves getting a very good nights sleep, but more importantly for me, I get up in the mornings not feeling stiff and sore. What is also good about it is that if either one of us need to get up during the night, we are not disturbing the other ones sleep.

Still not sure

We received our bed last month and were hoping for an amazing difference from our old worn out mattress. Although we are sleeping well we feel that its taking some getting used to. Initially the mattress seems to have a lot of give in it but I guess this is due to the number of springs in it. The sleep position is level and my wife who suffers from poor circulation in her legs isnt getting the same pains in the morning so I guess its helping. I think part of my worry is that the mattress has that comfortable half worn feeling already and that it wont last, but given the guarantee given I dont need to worry.

So comfortable...

We bought a zip and lock mattress because my wife and I have different requirements (she prefers soft I prefer medium). The premium we paid was worth every penny because we know have two beds in one and both of us are happy! We are both genuinely staggered about how comfortable this mattress is, after trying expensive memory foam mattresses in the past it is so much cooler and far more supportive. I have lower back pain and it has reduced significantly in the last 3 weeks. Goes to show... you get what you pay for and the fact this is a hand made British Product has made a huge difference.

Flaxby 8150 mattress better night sleep

Flaxby 8150 mattress purchase The service we received was excellent! Your reps know exactly what to recommend and were very friendly and helpful. We purchased the Flaxby 8150 King Mattress and have never had a better nights sleep. As someone with chronic back injuries, it has been a joy to wake up without pain! It almost feels like floating on water - my spine alignment has improved and Ive had a deepest sleep for over 20 years! Even slept through a few alarms as we were so comfortable! The delivery was professional and speedy. Overall a brilliant experience!

So Comfortable it's Amazing

I tested all the Nature Finest range up to over 14,000+ springs, but this one was more comfortable than all of the others. I was instantly comfortable every time I lay on this bed. It is THAT good#1 My only reservation was the smell after delivery was not great, it took three weeks of airing the mattress without sheets, spraying Febreze and an open window for the "farmyard" smells to dissipate. However, despite this unpleasant process, I would still buy this mattress again given the long-term comfort it provides.

Fantastic mattress

Had great interaction with staff to narrow down the mattress best suited and it came down to 2 both similar priced one traditionaly made the other with gel topper on it. Settled on this one, traditional mattress better manufactur warranty and have been sleeping soundly since its delivery, which was handled perfectly in this covid world. If your looking for a new mattress use the tools available in store to help your search that most definitely means the knowledgeable staff at dreams in Derby.

King of mattresses

I bought the zip and link king size. One soft the other medium. The medium is great support for me as I have hip and back pain. Easy to turn each mattress and then zip them together. No chemicals involved in manufacture so no worries about dangerous fumes. 3250 springs (per single mattress) wow. I'm 6ft 5 and 17 stones and the mattress easily spreads the load over the 3000 micro pocket springs. That's an average of just over 1 ounce per spring. Should last for many years.

Zip and link is a winner

Im small and sleep on my side. Without a soft mattress for my hips to sink into, I get terrible back ache. My husband is big, and sleeps on his front - he likes a medium-firm mattress. It is hard to find truly soft yet supportive mattresses, but this one is brilliant - finally I can have a lie in, and hubby is happy too. The mattress should be turned every week to begin with, but thats pretty easy with the zip - I can do it single-handed. Very happy with this choice!

Flaxby sumptuous

I was looking for a mattress and walked into the shop Dreams. I was greeted by staff, and we had a chat about the offers. I returned with my wife and we found out that a medium mattress was the right choice. To laid down amongst various mattresses and the Flaxby was different, in a good way. It is firm but soft. The sprung feeling is in every part of the mattress. We have slept very well. We are going to bed earlier. Waking up feeling refreshed. Highly recommended.

A very comfortable night's sleep!

Have slept so much better since getting this mattress (we chose the firm one). I am a side sleeper and it is so much more supportive and comfortable than any I have ever had before. Love the fact that it is made from all natural fibres and can be turned with the seasons to keep you cooler or warmer unlike most other mattresses which can only be rotated. Once it has finished its life, the whole mattress is recyclable which is much better for the planet too!

8150 DNAir Mattress after 2 weeks

i think the mattress is fine, but my husband is still getting used to it. We are using a mattress protector so we dont invalidate the exchange option... just in case.. and that is making a difference as its quite crunchy at the moment and the sheet doesnt fit well! Also in store there were labels on the mattress to tell which side was summer and which side is winter - but nothing on this one so we have guessed we are sleeping on the winter side?

Amazingly Comfortable with a slight minor issue

Generally a much better mattress than the one that we had before from Dreams and a much better sleep - we took advantage of the split mattress option (one side hard the other medium) to cater for our different preferences. Only one slight issue was that one of the mattresses was slightly curved inwards on one side - it does not attract from the sleep experience but it was not expected considering the price paid for each mattress (>1200)

Sleeping on heaven!

We got this a while back, and its the best investment ever. Sleep has never been more heavenly! The Zip & Link is a great idea, introduced by MAC at Dreams, since my husband can only sleep on a softer mattress whilst I prefer a firmer one, The Zip & Link is the perfect solution to meet our individual needs! Sleep has never been more comfortable and dreamy like it is ever since purchasing these mattresses. Well Done Dreams!!!

Firm well made mattress

We have had the mattress for a couple of weeks and it is taking a little time to get used to - it is exceptionally firm . It is however well made . When purchased we were advised with double the number of springs it would have a longer life but when it arrived we were still advised to replace after 8 years so not sure the extra was really worth it. That said it is a nice looking mattress that is as described firm .

At last a good night's sleep

After developing repeated back pains my wife and I decided a new mattress might be the answer.. The ability to purchase zip and link Flaxby mattresses with differing characteristics for each side has enabled us to achieve a good nights sleep without back pain in the morning! We are both very pleased with purchase and now look forward to years of pain free sleep. Our thanks to the craftsmen and women at Flaxby!

Our best wedding present!

I was a bit sceptical when the Sleepmatch thingy identified this pricey mattress as the best one for us. But deciding to invest the last of the cash that we got for our wedding in this mattress was a sound decision. My lower back pain has disappeared and Im sleeping well for the first time in about 4 years. (I even set my alarm 5 mins early now so I can start my day enjoying being comfy - cheesy but true!)

Excellent! Must buy for an amazing night's sleep!

Excellent matress, so comfortable. Firm but supportive in all the right places! I suffer from a bad back and this has improved my comfort levels and keeps me well supported. The matress is very well made and top quality. The best money I ever spent in my life! The dreams staff were brilliant from testing, purchasing and delivery. Brilliant! Highly recommended. You cannot put a price on a good night's sleep!

should have bought one earlier

had this mattress for a month and what a difference it's made ! both my wife and I wake up in the morning after a comfortable nights sleep - no more aches and pains after a disturbed sleep trying to get comfortable. According to my wife even my snoring has drastically reduced (go figure!) . I would strongly recommend this mattress to anybody. Should have bought one years ago and it is well worth the price.

Love this mattress!

We bought this zip linked super king mattress end January. From the first night my joints no longer ache and I am sleeping so well. My husband took about a week to get used to it but loves it now too. Easy to rotate on a weekly basis and looks to be v well made. V happy with our purchase and would definitely recommend to others. Expensive outlay initially but hoping it will pay off in the long run

The mattress and staff at dreams

I went into dream set on getting a temper mattress, after trying their mattress tester and sampling the beds suggested I can say Im 100% happy with our choice. Not only that the matures we chose saved quite a bit in the wallet region which is never a bad thing! The staff at dreams were really helpful in helping us get the mattress that was right for us and not what gets advertised the best

Excellent mattress

I bought this mattress very recently and it's been great so far. Was in two minds whether to get this model as it doesn't come with a "firm" option but the medium firm we have is really really good. No hot and bothered nights like in my previous memory foam mattress, unlike foam this seems a lot more airated and fresh. Wasn't cheap but once you sleep on it you know where the money has gone.

A perfect product for this big fella.

This is a fantastic mattress, a good solid product but comfortable at the same time. Being a heavy person the construction of this mattress is perfectly formed as to give me all the support I need in the places I need it. Its a very sturdy and heavy mattress so youll need to have some muscles to turn it as required so make sure you have help. The quality can be felt in the weight.

Labelling of different mattress specifications

Lovely mattresses. Very comfortable and quiet when getting up. One small suggestion: upon delivery the men assembling the bed with two separate mattresses "normal" and "firm", said the specification wasn't labelled on the mattresses. We had to determine which was which by sitting on them. If labelled, the assemblers could have placed them left & right according to our request.

Still not sure

Purchased a month ago, absolutely loved this in the shop. First night at home i hated it, it wasn't as comfortable, was to firm and not what i was expecting. Fast forward three weeks, the mattress is softening and my body is adjusting to this, my original aches have gone, but i have developed new ones in different places. Still not convinced its worth what was paid though!!

Finally Comfortable

My husband and I have tried so many different mattresses - soft, medium, firm, the one that came with the bed, an Emma mattress and all in combination with multiple toppers. With this mattress we are finally comfortable and neither complaining about our backs, our only regret is not coming to Dreams sooner. A big thank you to the lady in your Yeovil store for all her help.

Best Buy Ever

I waited for the bed to be made and was so glad that I did. It is so comfortable and all the aches and pains that I had in the morning are now gone. Firm yet soft and a great night's sleep. It was the top recommendation by the Dreams test bed and it is spot on for each of us. On the expensive side but well worth it. So pleased that it is made in Leeds and is British.

Flaxby Nature's Finest 8150 DNAir

We have struggled over past few years to find a good supportive but comfortable mattress. Its only been a couple of weeks but I think we have finally found it! We get a good night sleep now instead of the constant tossing and turning we used to do all night! You actually feel the mattress hugging you giving the support it should be. It is very well made and very heavy.

Luxury Mattress gives Luxury Sleep

I bought this mattress a month ago after suffering back ache for weeks on my old one. Its the most expensive mattress I have ever bought but it's definitely a case of getting what you pay for. My backache has gone and I'm getting the best sleep so I'd highly recommend it. It initially feels quite soft but in fact it gives good support and comfort. Well worth the cost.

Love it!

I was fully prepared for not liking my new mattress when it first arrived. You always have that feeling of 'oh no, did I make the right decision, I'm so used to my old mattress!' but I shouldn't have worried. It was perfect, no faults. It supports my lower back and hips and that pain has eased considerably. It is so comfy, not too hard, not too soft, total Goldilocks.

Flaxby Mattress

I bought this mattress 23/12/19. One side is soft for me . The other side is medium for my husband . The mattress handles at the side so it is easy to lift. It is zipped down the middle. I was a bit worried I would feel this, but neither of us can feel this. The mattress is excellent quality. It is very comfortable to sleep on. It is the best mattress I have bought.

Takes time to bed in

The mattress initially felt disappointingly firm compared to the example that we tried in store. It has improved after 40 days of use but there remains a feeling that you are sleeping on top of instead of within the bed. We are hopeful that it will continue to get better with use and may consider changing our old solid divan base to a sprung base to see if it helps.

Verry comfortable

We bought this mattress about a month ago. When we tried it in the shop it seemed to wrap round our bodies, but at home with a mattress protector and fitted sheet it doesn't seem quite the same. Comfortable though. I find the edge of the mattress rather softer than our previous one, sometimes I feel as though I may slide off! I do feel it was rather expensive.

Environmentally friendly mattress

This mattress has natural fillings that meet the fire retardant standards without the need for additional chemicals. Excellent. It's very comfortable so far. Possibly not as supported an edge to the mattress as we were hoping for. Nonetheless, we're very happy with it overall. It's expensive but the manufacturing process impressed us and seems to justify the cost.

So comfortable

After trying out a number of recommended mattresses, I went for this one as it seemed the most comfortable within the 25cm depth that I wanted for my Wall Bed frame. I choose the medium firmness. I have a slight shoulder issue, so wanted to invest in a quality mattress. I was also looking for a mattress that wouldn't make me too hot at night, and this was fine.

Medication free backpain cure.

We had no idea what kind of mattress we needed but by the end of the shop we knew we had ordered the best for us. It was delivered on time and basic instructions on best use were offered at that time. I had a bad back from sleeping on our old mattress, which the new mattress completely cured without medication. We are sleeping much better than before.

Perfect Choice of mattress.

Very pleased with our new mattress. The whole purchasing experience was excellent from the moment we entered the showroom. The mattress we selected is extremely comfortable and we have the benefit of selecting a firmer side for the wife. We had plenty of choice and plenty of time to ensure we made the right choice which has turned out perfectly.

Most comfortable mattress

I bought this a few weeks ago and delivery was really fast. The mattress is able to be bent slightly which means that it was really easily transported into my bedroom. This is the most comfortable mattress I have had. Had a great nice sleep! Will surely recommend it. Great thing is I found it in clearance so was a really good affordable price.

Back and hip pain at night

I cannot tell you just how fantastic this mattress is i have been suffering for months with a back and hip pain .The first nights sleep was incredible .I slept all night the first in months and have not looked back .The pain has just about gone and this is only just over 2 weeks of having my new mattress .One happy customer and husband .

Excellent purchase. No more back pain!

Very pleased. Went into a store looking for a new king size mattress as my other one was contributing to terrible back pain. Tried the sleep match and this mattress was suggested with a few others. Not a cheap mattress but worth every penny. I get a really good supportive and comfy nights sleep now. It was a medium that was purchased.

Excellent mattress, so comfortable

We bought this mattress a month ago after using the in store mattress selector, which suggested we purchase a medium to firm mattress to suit our needs. It has proven to be a really good buy, so comfortable and just the right degree of support, not too hard or too soft. We are both really pleased with it and would highly recommend it.

Very Luxurious

This mattress is like sleeping on a cloud, extremely comfortable shaping to your body contours exactly. Purchased two 3ft mattresses to zip together for use on a superking sized frame. Purchased two different support types one firm one medium my wife and I both get an excellent nights sleep. We would highly recommend these mattresses.

Hotel luxury at home

We received our mattress last month and it is one of the best purchases I have ever made. Every night it is like getting into a top quality hotel bed. My sleep scores on my fitbit are in the 90's!!! Every night I get into bed and I am annoyed with myself that I didn't go to bed earlier - I used to consider myself as a night owl!!

Dream machine

Very nice bed, firm matress , quality marerials No roll together. The only trouble is the matress is to heavey for me on my own or with the wife, need the two body builders who delivered it. The matress has a warm side for the winter and a cool side for sunmer, and and just a flimsey small label to show the difference.

Great support!

We bought this bed a month ago and decided to go for the Super King - best decision ever! The mattress is "medium" in firmness but offers such great support. This is our 2nd Flaxby bed and definitely not our last, despite being on the higher end price wise and which is reflected in the high quality feel of the product.

A superb mattress and so comfortable.

I rarely leave a review but in this case have no hesitation in recommending this Flaxby mattress. It is superbly comfortable, supportive but not too hard and consistently gives me the best nights sleep in any position. It delivers everything I wanted including using sustainable materials and is made in Britain.

So comfortable

We have had this mattress for 2 weeks now. It is the zipped one which is perfect as there is no bouncing about. I like a soft mattress and my husband prefers a medium. It is much easier to turn the two mattresses instead of turning a king size mattress. We are both in our 80's! Here's to many years of comfort.

Best mattress we ever bought

Very comfortable, no feeling of falling out if lying close to the edge. And I don't get bounced around when my husband turns over! Mind you, it is the most expensive mattress we have ever bought - but we are worth it! You are in it for at least a third of every day of your life, get the best you can afford.

Zero to sleep in one visit.

For someone that was very cynical about shops and sales staff, I was taken aback by the professionalism and attention to detail. I now sleep a full night where for years I have grabbed a few hours per night. Their sleep/mattress machine got this 100%spot on. Well worth the time spent and investment.

So comfortable

We bought our mattress just before lockdown so had a wait of 3 months but it was worth every minute. It's the most comfortable mattress we've ever owned. It was pricey, but considering the amount of time spent in bed and the support we both need with various conditions, it was a worthy investment.

Flaxby 8150 DNAir mattress purchase

Extremely comfortable bed. The sides of the do not seem as firm as they did in the shop. Will rotate the bed to improve this, but will monitor it in case of any problem. The two sides of the mattress offer cool one side and warm the other - very useful and practical. Overall worth the cost.

A great life lesson

Ive never thought that half of my problems to fall asleep were because of my mattress. After Dreams mattress assessment I could find the best mattress in the market that meets my needs. Ive learnt that there are certain things in the life that give us life quality, good sleep is one of them

I wish Id bought this fabulous bed years ago!

Its the best bed ever. I was expecting to have to get used to it BUT right from the very start I had the most amazing nights sleep & had way less aches & pains in the morning! Absolutely delighted. It is SO luxurious and can stay in bed without getting back ache. Its a medium mattress.

Fantastic nights sleep

This is the most expensive mattress I've ever bought and worth every penny. It was comfortable from day one and for the first time in years I've woken up with no aches or stiffness. It has to be rotated each week at first and it's quite heavy for one person to do but the handles help

A quality product

Been using for a couple of weeks now, a touch stiffer than our last mattress, but getting a good nights sleep. It will apparently work its way in which I hope will take some of the stiffness out. You can tell that this is well made and I am sure we will have yers of use out of it.

High standard

we have needed a new mattress for some time, but was a little anxious as to which one to perches, we needn't have worried at all, the mattress was of a very good quality exhalent materials used in the making, and manufactured to a very high standard, made by people who cared.

Better night sleep

The mattress is giving us a better night sleep, not sure if we should have gone for the soft mattress we decided to go for the medium. It is early days so the mattress is getting use to our contours & shape. It is certainly a great improvement compared to our previous mattress.

Flaxby pocket sprung mattress

We received great service in the shop when purchasing. Good delivery drivers that took the mattress to the room of our choice and the new mattress is dreamily gorgeous to sleep on! Would definitely recommend the store to others who want a simple effective shopping experience

Excellent mattress

I have had my new mattress for 2 weeks now and so far I am very happy with it. It is comfortable, feels luxurious and is well worth the price. The description says it is very heavy so I was concerned it may be difficult to turn however I managed it on my own and I am small.

Very comfortable mattress

We have had this mattress for a month and we find it is cosy but not too warm and supportive (this is a medium hardness quality). It is heavier than I expected but I think this shows the quality of the product and hopefully long lasting. We are very pleased overall.

Slowly getting comfortable!

Weve had this mattress for a month & its just starting to feel comfortable. Felt much more like a firm mattress than a medium mattress for the 1st few weeks. Weve also had to change our pillows to gain total comfort. Was hoping for more considering the huge price!

Bed cover - essential having spent a lot of money!

Having just bought a new king size bed base, mattress and headboard we decided on the extra security of the protection plan giving us eight years of cover including accidental damage/spillages etc. It came with the added bonus of a Flaxby quilted mattress protector.

Our new bed.

If you dont want a firm bed this is not for you. It doesnt feel as firm in Dreams store. Its ok for us but we have only had it for three weeks so time will tell. It does have a nice warm feeling on the winter side which is lovely. We would recommend this bed.

This is really comfortable would defo recommend

Some of the best nights sleep I have had. After looking at our options this was the best, a little pricey but still good for the money. Would defo get Super king fitted sheets or large king as the normal ones dont stay on well due to the thickness of the mattress

Worth the expense.

For me this mattress did exactly what I wanted..stopped my back aching. Its quite firm which we wanted but my husband took longer to adjust to the deep button inserts as he sleeps on his side. Extremely well made but for the price thats what you expect.

Good nights sleep at last

Needed a new mattress as both husband and I had back and shoulder aches every morning. After trying a number of mattresses in the shop we decided on this mattress. No more aches in the morning. Best decision we've ever made regarding mattress purchase.

Great nights sleep

I have had this mattress for the past 3 weeks and my sleep has improved immensely. I used to toss & turn on my old mattress but this new one is so comfortable that as soon as my head hits the pillow I am asleep. I wake up refreshed & ready for the day.

Great sleep

I Purchased the mattress 3 weeks ago the salesman was helpful and knowledgeable as were the delivery team. The mattress is really comfortable and can honestly say I'm now having a really good night's sleep no more stiff back in the morning; wonderfull

Not medium. It's very firm.

So far we are finding this mattress too firm. Having spent much time in store trying various mattresses we always came back to this one in medium. But the delivered version is firmer than the firm one in store. We are 3 weeks in and still struggling.

A great nights sleep! Worth every penny!

A whole different experience on the first night on my new mattress, but it wasnt until a few nights in that I realise just how good it is! Worth every penny to get a super nights sleep and the benefit to my back problem has been noticeable too!

Sleep easy...

This is our second of these mattresses. We got a bigger bed and wouldnt consider any other mattress. The mattress is so soft and comfortable it almost hugs you as you sleep. Its very hard to get out of bed! The best mattress we have ever had.

As recommended by the chiropractor

I Took the advice of my chiropractor about which mattress to get and from when I tested this mattress in store, I wanted to sleep on it immediately! I am less than a month in and have had the best nights sleep every night I have slept on it...


This product is more than comfortable and the huge amount of springs inside of it really makes a difference. I suffer from back problems and have quite a bit of pain and since receiving the mattress I have managed to get a good nights sleep.

Comfort & Luxury no question!

Although this mattress was a little more expensive that I intended to pay, I am so pleased that I did purchase it as it is so comfortable and so much more luxurious than my old worn out one, that I now don't want to get up in the mornings!!

Great mattress

Great mattress. It is more expensive than I originally planned but glad I spent the extra as it is definitely superior in quality than my last mattress. I tried out different ones in the store but this was always the one I came back to.

Great quality

I bought this mattress and have had the best nights sleep ever. It contours to my body, it's supportive of my joints and it is deep and luxurious. I would recommend this mattress for its comfort, quality and high standard workmanship.


I'd been looking for a new mattress for some time, then I slept on a Flaxby Nature's Finest 8150 DNAir Mattress and bought one the following week because it was so comfortable and I had the most amazing night's sleep! I love my bed!

Flaxby Nature's Finest 6500 DNAir Mattress

Although we had to wait longer for the delivery due to Covid we are delighted with the quality and comfort of the mattress . Its not till you sleep on when you realise how less comfortable the last one was. Very well packaged .

Definitely worth the investment!

Great mattress! It does have a odour due to the all natural materials -it's not entirely unpleasant - but it fades with some airing out anyway. It is very comfortable and has not been irritating my wife's highly sensitive skin.

Sleep Easy

I love my new bed. My health has not been so good of late but to end the day with my Flaxby has been just what the doctor ordered. It seems to take the shape of my body and enclose my aching back with its interior. I love it

Like sleeping on a feather

I ordered this mattress to ease discomfort and sleep deprivation following abdominal surgery. Wow. What a difference! I feel like I am floating as I drift off to sleep. The comfort this matress provides is worth every penny.

A Great Service From Dreams

I suffer from back problems and chose to go to Dreams for ideas of the types that was suit me. After going on the electronic tester bed, five types were highlighted. We checked all these and decided on one that felt right.

So comfy

We tested several mattresses in the showroom which had been recommended but this showed such quality. After about a week, it started to shape itself and is so comfortable, and we are experiencing really good night sleeps.

Expensive, but get what you pay for

We got a super king and, while it came close to breaking the bank, it has facilitated good nights sleep ever since we bought it. If this lasts the 15 years we were told it would, this will prove to be worth every penny.

Sleeping on air

Very comfy to sleep on. Feels very soft but also firm enough to support. Due to workouts, i frequently feel stiffness and aches and would struggle to feel comfortable on my old bed. But now i wake up feeling refreshed

Perfect night's sleep

We have had our new mattress for a month and what a difference. Our old mattress was about 15 years old, so due change, but what a change, it's a 'dream!!'. Only trouble is I dont want to get out of bed now :-)

Excellent Comfortable Mattress

I bought my mattress 2 weeks ago having been assessed on Sleep Match in store. Im delighted with my new mattress. It was the perfect match for me as my back pain has disappeared. So great to wake up pain free.

Hand made delight!

I've had the wonderful experience of this matress now for 15 nights sleep and what a sleep it has been.... It speaks for it's self when your child comes in for morning cuddles and ends up back asleep... Bliss!

Unbelievable comfort

Didnt intend to spend as much as I did on a mattress but once we tried it nothing else matched up. Have never had such a comfy nights sleep ever find myself going to bed earlier just to enjoy the comfort

Great features

Have been sleeping on my new mattress for a month now, and cannot believe how comfortable it is compared to my 5 year old orthapeidic one i had. From my first night on it i have had great night s sleep.
