Pros & Cons

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 a decade of industry insight.

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.

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.

Why our sleep experts loved it

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.

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.

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.

Odour

  • 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.

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.
