What Makes The Relyon Natural Plus 1600 Pocket Mattress Great?

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.

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

Knitted Cover

It is common in the industry to have a knitted cover, these covers can come in a variety of patterns but are typically hard wearing and do not present problems for consumers.


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.


Soft white fibres

White fibres tend to be a mixture of polester and other non-descript synthetic fibres


Single sided means only one side is comfy. Positives are you only need to rotate the mattress occassionaly rather than the more cumbersome rotate and flip. Downside is the lifespan of the product may suffer as a result, only marginal, but worth mentioning.

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


TENCEL™ fabric is softer than other materials such as cotton, so its smooth finish is a good option for those with sensitive skin. The fabric is made from natural, sustainably sourced wood and is an environmentally responsible option. Its unique physical properties provide both great strength and efficient moisture absorption.

8 Year Guarantee

An 8 year guarantee is fantastic news for the consumer. A normal industry standard is 1 year. 8x the standard guarantee means that the supplier and retailer both feel that this product is pretty special. Buy with confidence, the average mattress typically gets replaced after 7 years and here we have the supplier offering beyond that

30cm deep

30cm is a decent sizes mattress that may require a deeper fitting sheet to comfortably cover the full radius of the mattress. While thicker mattresses are not always better, it is a fairly good indication of decent depth relating to the comfort layers of a mattress

Featuring a natural blend of the finest wool, alpaca fleece and bamboo

Alpaca wool is a luxurious fiber that has been used by the indigenous people of South America for thousands of years. It is also known as llama wool or vicuña wool. The fiber comes from the alpaca, a domesticated animal similar to a llama, but smaller.

Wool is springy and soft for perfect comfort

Bamboo is breathable and a sustainable natural material

Tencel helps regulate your temperature and keep you fresh and dry

TENCEL™ fibre covers are produced using environmentally responsible methods, utilising sustainable raw material wood. The Tencel fibres are used in some of the best quality mattresses across many retailers. The Tencel fibres are both soft while also being fairly hard wearing, making them an ideal choice in mattress cover.

1600 individual Posturepocket™ springs provide enhanced support

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. 

EdgeMax reinforces the mattress edges and improves airflow too

Edge support is really important and often found in the more premium end of mattresses. This edge support allows the edges of the mattress to have the same degree of tension as the inside of the product giving you confidence in the edges and helping to prevent roll of.

Smooth knitted cover is beautifully soft to the touch

Micro-quilting helps to lock in the fillings for enhanced durability

This mattress comes with a quilted cover. Many people overlook the cover as a need for consideration however, the right cover can add additional comfort and in the case of this one here, adds quilted comfort that offers a soft but hard-wearing cover that is both breathable and stylish.

Probiotic Bio-Protect anti-allergy treatment for a healthier sleep

Anti-allergenic means that the product will be suitable for not aggravating an allergy further and is intended or prepared for those suffering from an allergy. This makes the product ideal for those looking to prevent or relieve allergic symptoms.

Medium support rating - not too firm or soft!

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.

Single-sided with no need to turn over

A single sided mattress is typical for the industry and relates to how  a mattress has the comfort layer on one side of the mattress. only This means that the mattress only needs to be rotated rather than flipped. The benefit of single sided mattresses is that they require less upkeep in that there's no flipping, but also, there's less components involved in the creation which saves costs.

Rotate using the turning handles included

It is import to rotate your mattress because it helps ensure even settlement of fillings and ensure even distribution is maintained. Further to this it also means that more than one area of the mattress is used equally, increasing longevity and lifespan as part of typical mattress care.

Depth: 30cm

With a depth of 30cm, this mattress is quite thick and featuring a fair amount of heft. While quality is not necessarily determined by depth, it does go some way toward allowing good quality fillings.

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

Enjoy more sleeping space with Relyon's EdgeMax

Edge to edge support is hugely beneficial in a mattress as it gives you the full surface area of the product to spread out. This ultimately means you can utilise the edges of the product without fear of dipping or rolling out.
