Becky's Thoughts On The Flaxby Natures Halo Pocket Sprung Mattress

Today we’re taking a closer look at the Natures Halo Pocket Sprung Mattress from Flaxby. A well established model from the popular manufacturer which fits in the upper quadrant in terms of costs and quality. Popular rivals to this brand would include the likes of Therapur, Tempur and Hypnos.

For those who don’t know, the Flaxby mattress range is part of the Harrison Spinks collection, a hugely popular mattress manufacturer who has spent decades producing high quality bedding accessories. 

Diving deeper into the Flaxby Natures Halo Pocket Sprung Mattress we will start by breaking down the mattress into its core components, namely, the layers and starting with the comfort layer. In this instance the Flaxby Natures Halo Pocket Sprung Mattress comes with naturally breathable cotton fillings which are soft and soothing, while also proving to offer fantastic temperature regulation helping you stay at the right temperature throughout the entire year.

Moving onto the support layer and, as the name of the product suggests, you have an impressive assortment of pocket springs. When it comes to pocket springs you are already getting arguably the best body contouring layer available for mattresses which will typically perform better than it’s open coil traditional competition. Same too with reflex foam which, while offering its own unique benefits for the bed-in-a-box crowd, doesn’t personally measure up to the extent that pocket springs do. 

Onto the mattress cover and you are getting a wool blend damask cover which again, compliments the cooling nature of the comfort layer and works hand in hand with the support layer to produce an all-in-one specialist mattress that has great temperature controls. What’s more, the cover features robust turning handles which will aid mattress rotation, helping to ensure sufficient and even settlement across the mattress layers preventing dipping and uneven wear.

This mattress is available in all popular sizes from small single all the way to super-king, with the euro size small double also featuring in the lineup. It’s common industry practice to price small-single and small-double at the same rate as single and double and it’s good to see that this is being reflected in this lineup.

The mattress will most likely suit those looking for a high quality product with very little in terms of compromise. Ideal for those who get too hot or cold at night, the temperature regulation properties of these mattresses will be much appreciated. 

Additionally, since the mattress is available in multiple tensions you can choose the most suitable, from medium to firm, there’s something suitable for you. Personally I find the medium to be the easiest to recommend for couples as it suits the widest audience regardless of back sleeper or side sleeper, underweight or overweight - within reason.

Reviews are very impressive, with over 95% of people recommending the product. Many make specific mention that their sleep has been improved. With less aches and pains along with luxury and comfort, there’s plenty of happy customers. At time of writing the product has garnered an impressive 370 5 star reviews. 

With a 5 year guarantee, it’s clear that both Flaxy and Dreams both have large ambitions for this mattress, effectively guaranteeing it for over half of the typical mattress lifecycle which should go a considerable way toward providing quality and confidence in the mattress.

What Makes The Flaxby Natures Halo Pocket Sprung 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.

4 Handles

Handles make it easier to flip and rotate a mattress. Mattresses should be rotated and/or flipped every 3 months, without handles this can become cumbersome and so consider this a plus point for saving hassle down the line.

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.

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

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.

Naturally breathable cotton fillings

Wool blend damask cover

Traditionally hand tufted for secure alignment

Two rows of side stitching for superior edge support

750 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.

2 weeks use and already my back feels better

I have used the mattress for 2 weeks. I already feel so much better. The lower back pain I used to get up with is now significantly less pain. I opted for this mattress for the double layer of springs. Good firm support for my back But with added mini springs to ease joint pressure. The first night I found it to be too firm just mattress on its own, but I am used to a memory foam topper! so next night put my topper back on and it's perfect. No hesitation in recommending this product. The price was what I was expecting to pay for this type of mattress, but i kept an eye on the website and was lucky enough to qualify for a £100 price match reduction. Even happier

For those with back pain

I was born with my foot on backward's and operated on as an infant. Now in my 40s with back and leg pain a good night sleep is essential. I find I go to sleep quickly but more telling, I still wake up in the night but breifly compared to my old memory foam mattress so that Im not fully awake. I went for the medium-firm mattress but it really was a choice between this or the softer mattress of the same brand. If I did not need this firmness I would have bought the softer DNAir mattress in place of another memory foam matress (nice as they are).

5

Great nights sleep

We bought a new mattress which was delivered two weeks ago. Gone are the morning of waking up with backache and neckache. This is a firm mattress with good support but still soft enough for a good nights sleep. We chose based on the recommendation of the machine in store and trying out those choices. This one felt the most comfortable for both my husband and I, and we certainly can say (after 2 weeks) we are SO glad we took the plunge.....it was expensive, but SO worth it! Very happy with the product, the service and delivery.

5

Best sleep in years.

We bought this mattress as a change to are current 2 single mattresses and it been a the best decision we have done for years. Not just the fact that we now don't have a dip in the middle of the bed, but the time we took in deciding on the right fitting mattress in the store have really paid off. The sleepmatch system worked really well, and that twined with the quality of the flaxby mattress has given is the best sleep we have had for years.

5

Best night sleep in 5 years!!!

I purchased this mattress about 2 weeks ago and from the first night, I have slept so very soundly!! All my previous aches and pains have gone, I am sleeping through the night and I am waking up refreshed! I had previously bought a new mattres a year ago from another provider and I never slept as soundly as I have. The staff were really helpful too and my purchse has been the best purchse!! Thank you Dreams <3

5

Distressed, panicked, disappointed

Unfortunately the bedframe as well as the supporting slats arrived, damaged, chipped, dirty, muddy, scratched and had muddy hands prints on them too. It has been an incredibly distressing experience especially after so many decades of loyalty to Dreams. The mattress is currently resting on dirty supporting slats as well as a dirty bedframe. It has been a horrible experience. I feel horrible each time it.

5

Flashy nature's refine DNAir matress

We bought 2 weeks ago and have to say one of the best matress we have bought both suffer back pain and after only 2 nights no more pain on waking in morning and so comfy we are falling asleep easier if give this matress 5 stars amazing and it helped finding when at dreams we led on sleepmatch machined to tell us exactly which mattress would suit us

5

OH WOW

Went to store and got a massive discount on this luxurious and super comfy mattress. I cannot believe how much difference it makes to my whole body. I have fybromyalgia and a lot of pain so anyone needing some extra help should invest. It has 2 sides. One softer than the other so you can choose your side aswell. Excellent purchase.

5

Absolute Bliss!

Have had this mattress for just over two weeks, and I don't think I have slept so well for years. I'm always a bit nervous buying a new mattress (major expense and it might be awful to sleep on), but I certainly don't regret the decision to buy this one. Luke at the Carmarthen store was great, very helpful, and very competent.

5

Blissful comfort

This new mattress was a treat to celebrate a new bedroom. I couldn’t wait for the work to be finished so that my bed could be positioned and I could make it up, ready for sleep. It really did exceed my wildest dreams- I stretched out and luxuriated in the comfort and support- and I had the best night’s sleep for three months!

5

Instant comfort

Bought for my (very!) elderly mother. She found it instantly comfortable and is now sleeping much better and has slightly fewer aches and pains as a result! She found it instantly comfortable - which is quite something for a brand new mattress. Will be looking for one like this myself when we need to change our mattress!

5

Great product. Solid sleep.

I've had this mattress for nearly a month and I'm so pleased with it. It hasn't taken very long to get used to (it was comfortable from day one). I can already feel the difference it has made to the quality and soundness of my sleep, I'm sleeping longer and with fewer interruptions. Definitely the right mattress for me!

5

The Comfort Zone.

Our purchase of the mattress was one of our better moves as the whole process was handled with efficiency by the staff at Dreams. From the expert product knowledge of the salesperson, the efficiency of the delivery personnel to. the comfort of a good nights sleep and pleasant dreams.- first class.

5

Bloody good sleep.

Had to buy a new mattress as was getting poor night sleep. Popped up to Leeds and met David. After quick check on what I needed and use the sleep match app picked this mattress out. I have had the best sleep every since. Can’t fault it at all. Worth spending the cash for a better nights sleep.

5

Aesthetically very pleasing

I bought this mattress a couple of weeks ago. We decided on the dual purpose medium on one side and firm on the other. Only two weeks in and don’t think we will need the returns policy. First time for years we are now finally having a good night’s sleep. Thank you for this

5

SLEEP TIGHT!!

Following various back aches and unsettled nights we decided to purchase a new mattress and chose DREAM to view and discuss. We agreed to buy the Flaxby Mattress and without doubt it's worth every single penny!! Superb quality and we are sleeping very, very well!!

5

Suspends you in total comfort

We decided it was time for a new mattress. One of us has been diagnosed with osteoarthritis and is currently suffering with considerable leg pains. The new mattress has proven to be extremely comfortable and supportive enabling a good nights sleep.

5

Excellent supportive mattress!

Bought this last month and the difference in my night sleep is incredible! Back ache- gone. Waking in the middle of the night- not happening! It’s utter bliss! Well made, quality pocket sprung, and perfectly caters for mine and my partners needs

5

Perfect Nights

We bought this mattress two weeks ago for a new bed frame. We have slept extremely well every night and can recommend the mattress without reservations. It is our second mattress from Flaxby. Their product and Dreams service have been faultless.

5

Great nights sleep!

I bought two Flaxby mattresses and can feedback that the quality is very good, and much more comfortable than previous memory foam based mattresses. The frame is solid and seems will prevent the mattress edge from sinking as other mattress did.

5

Superb quality & the comfiest sleep we've ever had

We have had this mattress for just over two weeks and are so pleased with it. The quality is superb and it's the comfiest sleep we have had in years and even with a new born baby next to us we are waking up fresher than ever! Highly recommend!

5

So comfortable

I bought this mattress three weeks ago and I can't believe I waited so long to get a new one, I thought my old mattress was comfortable...turns out I was wrong, this one is amazing! Excellent advice from the Dreams mattress assessor...!

5

Great advise, great purchase!

After a mattress assessment I was advised of a few mattress choices by the store manager, who was very professional, efficient and knowledgeable. I find the mattress very comfortable and supportive. I think my back is better for it.

5

Well made and comfortable

First new mattress for many years and so far very pleased with this purchase. Clearly the mattress is the key component and it is not letting us down. Requires far less turning than what it replaced. No complaints whatsoever.

5

Perfect form mattress

We bought this for my disabled partner. He has multiple mobility problems and spends a LOT of time in or on the bed. Literally from the first night his sleep experience has improved and he’s a little brighter every morning

5

5

Amazing

Incredibly comfortable mattress

We bought this mattress just before the lock-down, and despite the wait (4 months) and worry, i am thrilled we bought it as it is incredibly comfortable. The delivery men were courteous and very helpful.

5

Best nights sleep

The Dream Match gave us the top 3. We tested all 3 not knowing the order. We picked the one the technology rated the best. My word it is the best for us, best nights sleep now night after night.
