Why our sleep experts loved it

When you buy a mattress, you’re looking for something that will be comfortable and suit your needs for years to come. This is why so many people are interested in high-end mattresses. These types of mattresses tend to last longer than cheaper brands, thanks to the materials they’re made of. But how do you know if a luxury mattress is worth the price tag? Below we will dissect what makes this mattress stand out from the rest and why the Millbrook Wool Luxury 4000 Pocket Mattress could be exactly what you are looking for.

Let’s start with who this mattress is suitable for and the best way to do this is to look at the quality of the components inside:

Starting with the base layer, you get an impressive 4000 pocket springs. When it comes to the base layer, pocket springs are typically regarded as the best in the industry, beating out open coil and reflex foam consistently. What’s more, the number of springs is generally a good indicator of both quality and full body contouring with 4000 being firmly on the upper high quality segment. The tension itself comes in a medium firm which may prove to be ideal for back and stomach sleepers thanks to the additional body contouring. For side sleepers, there should be an additional amount of caution as there are certain circumstances where this mattress could suit side sleepers provided they are of average or heavier build and are not particularly hourglass shaped. See, medium firm tensions do not allow as much give as softer products which means your hips and shoulders do not sink as deep in order to level the rest of your body. Provided you have a relatively lean shape , you may indeed find this medium-firm suitable. 

Onto the comfort layer and the Millbrook Wool Luxury 4000 Pocket Mattress features generous and deep helpings of wool in this layer making it soft to the touch while also maximizing breathability for a great all-season night's sleep that will keep you warm, but not too warm helping to maximize sleep quality and promote deeper REM sleep. An added benefit of this comfort layer is that the mattress is double sided, meaning this comfort layer appears on both sides and maximizes the durability of the product thanks to an increased surface area. Remember though, that double sided mattresses do require flipping in line with manufacturer specification. To make this process easier, Millbrook have included turning handles as standard, although it is still particularly heavy in some of the larger sizes.

So that moves us into who this product won’t suit and the list is smaller than you might first think. Those same side sleepers we commented on above should certainly be wary of a medium firm tension mattress like this, as it is right on the nose of what will be considered too firm to find the softness necessary to sink into but depending on your build and frame, this may work to your advantage. Those of lower BMI than average should definitely consider a softer mattress unless you like the feeling of increased tension and firmness and sleep on your back. Finally, the biggest slice of people that won’t find this mattress suitable are going to be those on a budget as unfortunately the price point of premium mattresses like this one do tend to sit in that upper price quadrant. We do believe the price is justified thanks to the great quality components and deep fillings on offer, but understand that many won’t be able to justify that same cost.

This brings us nicely into where the mattress competes in the market. The brand itself can sometimes be found in the mid-range but largely sees itself as a premium namesake that punches above its weight in the premium market. The result is more of the same when it comes to the Millbrook Wool Luxury 4000 Pocket Mattress which again, fits into the premium banding on comfort, quality and price.

Onto the firmness categorized on a scale of 1 to 10 where 1 is the softest and 10 is very firm and we would position this at a 6.5. You can definitely feel the additional firmness and support in your back when you relax on top of it, while the premium pocket springs don’t shy away from that additional spring-back motion that you get when they are depressed downward. A 6.5/10 is around about the correct number for most medium firm mattresses.

But what of customer feedback? Well we are quite fortunate with Millbrook Beds and this particular model as it has been around for quite a number of years which means we have lots of long term reviews and happy customers. To date there are an impressive 600+ reviews, many of which seem to genuinely love their product. The main positives to be taken away from what they talk about tends to be in the areas of softness and comfort, with many remarking that the extra deep comfort layer was exactly what their heart wanted, while the springs are what their back needed. The result is a good quality night's sleep for most. There were a few naysayers however, and the running theme tended to be around subjectiveness over the tension offered with some finding the product too soft, and others too firm, both of which resulted in less-than-ideal experiences. Fortunately the customer service available for this product is high and with an impressive 10-year warranty included on top, it's clear that many end up satisfied regardless.

At the time we reviewed this product, the date of delivery was typically coming in at 1 working day which is impressive as this type of mattress is normally made to order elsewhere. Same too with sizing where we found we were able to get a variety of popular UK sizes ranging from single through to super king size.  The retailer is one of the main “online only” retailers (although they have just started opening stores), and so they have a host of on demand next day delivery options including weekends. What’s more, they can take away your old mattress if necessary.

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.

The best mattress I ever slept on was a single size V-spring some years ago, I can never afford a V-spring King size so when my daughter told me about your mattresses I looked into it very carefully, I found that although not identicaly made I made the decision to buy one of your mattresses. Positive points. Very quick delivery. Mattress was Taken to our first floor bedroom by delivery men. The mattress is very heavy just like the V-spring which gave us greatConfidence in our purchase as the two mattresses are very close to be made the same in our eyes. Both my wife and myself are heavy people and we suffered with aching hips when lying down, after using our new mattress from day one this problem has gone, wow what a fantastic experience to lay down and sleep with no pain, unbelievable relief.The medium / firm is excellent. Comfort 10/10 Material 10/10Quality of workmanship 10/10This mattress is superb value for money, nothing more to be said except that two more members of my family are in the process of purchasing one. I would highly recommend this mattress and manufacturer.

Had this 4-5 weeks now and waited to review. Really comfortable and keeps me cool at night yet surpportive for my back and I have a history of a bad one. Just be aware of how heavy it is to turn over! Ultimately mattresses have been made this way for years for a reason so don't be fooled in to paying more for a mattress in a box! You have been warned ;-) and that comes from an engineer who has no issue with new product developments! Just focus on longevity if you are tempted and read the reviews of those who have had the mattress in a box for longer then the money back guarantee!

It's exactly what I was looking for. As a Lady of a certain age, I love the cool feel and how it doesn't overheat like a memory foam. It gives me the support that I need, consequently I'm falling asleep quickly and staying asleep. It's quite refreshing to be waking before the alarm and it's a lovely quality too so it looks the biz! It's a tad on the heavy side but I knew that before I bought it from reading plenty of reviews, turning it regularly will keep me fit!

Felt the need to switch from an Ortho Extra Firm Super king to something a little more comfortable. We originally ordered a Simba mattress but had to return it as it was so uncomfortable! We carefully read reviews of this mattress to ensure our next choice would be better suited and happy to say it is exactly right. Not too firm but perfectly supporting and adapting to body contours, feels like sleeping on a marsh mellow. I am 5ft 9 , 13.10st. My wife is 5ft 4 and 10.8st

This matress is a slice of heaven. The first night i lay on this i felt this unusual sensation in my feet (which lay higher than the hips) . Other than being toasty warm It didnt take me long to realise that this was actually the feeling of circulation. Crazy i know. I got this bed after trying those horrid foam mattresses with large add campaigns and no benefits at all for the body. Chemical free. Luxurious and handmade just for me. Lush. Hard to get out of bed.

I had a problem with my back recently, something I have never until the last year and also I started to get problems sleeping due to hip pain. This mattress has completely relieved the problem over 2 weeks. We did not want a rock hard orthopaedic mattress, but one that gave support in different area, so we chose the higher pocket spring option. We are very pleased with this mattress.

The best mattress I have ever purchased, it's also the 1st mattress I've bought on my own after losing my husband a couple of years ago. I know he would love it as much as I do, it's medium to firm which is great and my sleep has improved. It is a very heavy mattress which isn't a bad thing just hard work turning it

Very comfortable. Has a soft top so you can lay at any angle but the firmness underneath supports you well. Hardly any movement from your partners movement transfers. I was worried it may me too firm as I have issues with my hips (but too soft gives me back issues) but this mattress is in the goldilocks range and its just right!

As a hot sleeper somewhat bigger than my partner we made the plunge from an Eve original memory foam mattress which sank and sweltered, to this. It's early days but I haven't had a bad night on it and that's with the hot summer nights starting about now. Fingers crossed it stays this way, but all good so far.

As a big fan of athletics and a someone who regularly runs I was intrigued by this mattress. Don't need the fitness tracker but I'm sure it will happily find a home. The mattress itself is just as expected, really supportive, good quality and I wake feeling rested and ready for an active day.
