Becky's Thoughts On The Millbrook Wool Luxury 5000 Pocket Mattress

The Millbrook Elation 2500 Pocket Mattress is the latest in a post-pandemic shift that sees Millbrook Beds continue it's trajectory into the upper quadrant in terms of quality and comfort. For those that are unaware, Millbrook Beds are a key staple of the industry, having made quality mattresses for nearly 70 years. That said, I honestly haven't come up against much of their range in my decade within the industry. The mid-range customer often looks toward Silentnight and Sealy while the upper range customer looks toward Hypnos and Tempur which has, at times, left Millbrook perhaps undeservedly left out in the cold. It looks like times are changing though, as the new lineup starting with the Millbrook Wool Luxury 5000 Pocket Mattress has a lot going for it. Let's unpack it and see what's happening under the hood.

Let's start, as always with that impressive support layer. Millbrook have opted for the well reviewed and highly regarded pocket spring layer which is a personal favourite of mine which typically performs better than the open coil traditional spring variety often seen in poorer quality mattresses. When it comes to springs the more the better is the general rule. There's an argument that more than 2500 generally goes unnoticed as 2500 is the saturation point for full body contouring. Regardless though, what you are looking at it a very high specification spring system. 

The firmness on the support layer comes in at a soft-medium tension. This type of firmness can generally be recommended for a good range of people including in particular, those that are side sleepers or with an average or below BMI. Great for that additional sinkage for your hips and shoulders, this softer than medium mattress should delight while still providing adequate neck and back support.

Onto the comfort layer and you get a delightful helping of finest Hampshire wool that is handcrafted and worked into the top layer of the mattress to give a measured and deep fill that is sure to impress. The wool is considered a good and breathable layer which will help improve ventilation and increase airflow which is both hygienic for your mattress and also helps keep you cool while you sleep deeply throughout the night.

Reasons to Buy

The Millbrook Wool Luxury 5000 Pocket Mattress is a luxury mattress at a very affordable price. The Wool Luxury 5000 Pocket Mattress includes a 60-Night Sleep Trial, so if you don't love your Millbrook Wool Luxury 5000 Pocket Mattress, you'll be able to swap it for any other Millbrook mattress.

What is more, the mattress is all handmade in the UK so you're getting that reassurance of quality local workmanship that conforms to UK standards. With a 10 year warranty included for free, it's clear the manufacturer and retailer both have trust and confidence in what they are selling. I think it's great.

Reasons to Avoid

The 5000 springs will make this mattress heavy and being double sided means that you should really be both rotating and flipping your mattress to best ensure settlement is equal and measured. It's really important to do this as it helps increase the longevity of the mattress, something you really want to do when dropping the considerable amounts necessary for a good quality product like this. While the mattress does come with handles, you are likely to require the help of a second person to flip if you purchase a double or larger.


What Makes The Millbrook Wool Luxury 5000 Pocket Mattress Great?

Handmade 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.

Handcrafted in the UK

Handcrafted in the UK means that the product is built here, by people being paid a fair and honest wage using certified and safe products of good quality and construction. UK manufacturing is some of th best in the world and all of that is reflected in this product

Air Vents

When you sleep you also sweat, when this happens it generally leaks into the mattress. Sounds a little gross but that is the way it works, no drama however as matresses are built to be breathable and air out any moisture buildup, the addition of air vents helps ensure this happens with peak efficiency

Soft to Medium

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.


Double sided just means that the product can be flipped and still retain the same level of comfort. The fillings and dibres inside the product are capable of operating in any direction. Handy for settlement and to prevent dipping.

Featuring an impressive 6000 pocket springs - our highest pocket spring count ever!

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. 

Incredibly personalised support for your unique shape

A softer, more luxurious feel for gentle support and comfort

Soft support mattresses allow you to sink further into your mattress. This tension is ideal for those that sleep on their side or are looking specifically for a softer support than normal. Great for those who like to be hugged by their mattress.

Complete, edge-to-edge support for maximum sleeping space

Edge support offers a sturdy border across all edges of the mattress and gives you the opportunity to sleep in more positions and fully spread out on the product, embracing each and every part of the mattress and not having to stick to the middle. This is because the edging is reinforced and gives you that feeling of stability and roll-off prevention while you sleep.

Beautifully handcrafted with the finest Hampshire wool

Wool is a natural insulator, keeping you warm in winter and cool in summer

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.

Blended with breathable cotton for freshness

A perfectly balanced medium firmness rating for the best of both worlds

A medium tension mattress like this is the goldilocks of mattress tensions. Not too soft, nor too firm, medium is typically suitable for the vast majority of people that are looking for a good nights sleep. If you are of average build without back or neck problems, this should be a suitable product. If you are of lower BMI and a side sleeper, consider a softer mattress, whereas if you are of a higher BMI and suffer neck and back pain, consider a firmer tension.

Elegant cover is beautifully soft

Cover is infused with M-Pure, an environmentally-friendly, plant-based fire-resistant treatment

Expertly hand-tufted to secure all those luxury fillings

Hand Tufting is a labor intensive process that involves securing the fittings to a mattress rather than having them operate independently and loose within. This small act not only secures, but also leads to the mattress lasting longer and feeling firmer. A hand-tufted mattress is great for anyone looking for additional stability while they sleep.

Three rows of side stitching for a traditional look and better edge support

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.

Double-sided for extra comfort and luxury

The benefits of a double sided mattress are that you get twice the surface area of comfort layers. The real-world practicality of this means that you flip the mattress as well as rotate allowing for better settlement of fillings which increases longevity, while reducing the chance of dipping or spring problems that may otherwise occur. Ultimately the mattress will likely last longer and remain comfortable for a greater duration.

Easy to move using the built-in turning handles


A cotton mattress cover of fairly good quality and often preferable to damask covers and weaved covers. Your preference will vary though.

10 Year Warranty

A mattress warranty covers physical defects in a mattress, such as sagging over a certain threshold when not in use. Most mattress warranties last between 5-20 years, but as it is recommended to replace your mattress every 7-10 years this warranty will cover the life of your mattress.

Depth: 32cm

The industry standard for mattress depth is 7 inches, with most offering a comfortable 10 to 14 inches. Generally, the higher the load, the deeper it needs to be. But quality is important as a well-built 10-inch mattress can be equally as comfortable and supportive as a budget 12-inch mattress.  This 12.5 inch mattress gives the impression of luxury, whilst providing all the benefits of a regular mattress. With the development of the popular pillow top, depths can go up to 24 inches.

32cm deep

32cm is a very chunky mattress. Note that this product is likely to include a thick comfort later as well as a decent sizes support layer. You will need deeper fitting sheets as this is an absolute beast.

Approved by the National Bed Federation

The NBF is one of the most prestigious awarding federations in the industry, helped slightly by the fact that it is one of the only, however, it is still a great source of comfort knowing that this product holds approval by the team

Includes a free 60-Night Sleep Trial: swap for any other Millbrook mattress if you don't love it!

The 60 night sleep trial from Millbrook Beds on behalf of Mattress Online is the answer that you've been looking for to buy a mattress with confidence online. See, the age old problem has always been around consumer satisfaction and buying online has always been difficult to gauge something as subjective as a mattress. With this scheme, if you are not completely satisfied with your Millbrook mattress, you can replace it free of charge for any other model. That means you can swap firmness and fillings without incurring costly collection fees and unnecessary customer service hassle. It makes purchasing a mattress online simple, just as it should be.

Pocket springs

Pocket springs are like natures own springy piece of comfort, except they are not from nature. Alas, pocket springs are a very good part of a mattress and often found in the more premium models. Lower quality products will frequently use open coil spring setups, where pocket springs house each spring in a tiny pocket for additional stability and continued support. Pocket spring typically lasts longer than open coil due to this.

Reinforced mattress edge

One of the most common complaints in the industry is against mattresses with a weak mattress edge. It can often result in the user feeling like they are going to fall off the side of the bed and bed avoided. This mattress has a reinforced edge, something that helps ensure that particular scenario is avoided when you get close to a mattress edge while sleeping.

Fire Resistant

Fire resistant does not mean the product will never catch fire, rather, it will not go up in flames quite so quickly. Resistant to fire in the same way that I am resistant to kisses, sooner or later you end up giving in.

Includes turning handles

Oh turning handles are pointless I hear you say. Just try flipping and turning this product without handles. It can be a pain. Remember that mattresses should be both rotated and flipped frequently, not a problem if you are opting for a sinle, but those doubles and kings can get heavy. Handles are very good.


Luxury wool, typically found in mattresses in a shredded and felted capacity is an upholstery fibre often used as a top comfort layer, but sometimes found further down in those mattress layers as part of the support structure

Customer Reviews For The Millbrook Wool Luxury 5000 Pocket Mattress

Based on 32 review

My husband and I now achieve thoroughly good night rest, no fail. We purchased two 5000-pocket single mattresses, made of all-natural materials such as wool and cotton. And that it's made in the UK is also important. I never had any issues with sleep whatsoever but after sleeping on my new Millbrook mattress for some weeks now, I realise what good sleep can be like. It's like every cell in my body gets good sleep - I literally don't know I'm there for 8 hours, it's the only way I can describe it. This single mattress with 5000 pockets is absolutely tops!


It is the right size! A European King size.There is just the right amount of "give" to it.The edges are firm and don't collapse when sitting on the edge.It looks very well constructed and there is a nice touch of one Black woollen to make you smile.


We were surprised to discover that multi pocket sprung mattress actually feels softer when you first lay down than the memory foam type. We are also impressed with the thickness of the mattress, and the hand grips.


Excellent being two single mattresses that zip together to form a super king size bed that fits neatly on our base. One side soft and one side medium makes for a comfortable nights sleep
