The Budleigh Natural Mattress

Our wonderful Budleigh is the first traditional mattress we offer in our range. It is everything that a luxury mattress should be – without breaking the bank.

Using only the best hand teased Dartmoor wool from our farm in Okehampton on Dartmoor, we layer the filling with a little horsehair and even handful of dried lavender, to sooth and enhance sleep by giving a faint lavender scent when jumping into bed. The hand-teased wool provides a beautiful soft sleep surface but with the correct support of either medium or firm springs.

  • Our fabulous Dartmoor Farm natural washed and hand teased wool with lavender
  • Two rows of traditional hand stitched sides creating a 25cm luxury border
  • Cottonsafe® cover with embroidered logo
  • A luxury 1200 spring count with either medium or firm support
  • Turnable Active Support Technology®
  • Finished with eight air vents and four carrying handles
  • No fire retardant chemicals, no adhesives or glues
  • Unlike all other mattresses, we comply with the Stockholm Convention on recycling and each mattress is clearly labelled as such
  • 10 year manufacturing guarantee
  • Delivery: 7-8 weeks depending on stock
  • It may be possible to make a bespoke Budleigh mattress to your own specification i.e. unusual size or 4 poster beds with corner cut outs. Ring for a quote on 01395 239832.


Our Cottonsafe® Cover

All wool mattresses can have an itchy or prickly cover fabric. We prefer the soft feel of organic cotton. So, whilst our Cottonsafe® fabric uses pure wool in its blend, it has the distinct advantages of the softer organic cotton, producing a much more comfortable sleep surface.

The Cottonsafe® fabric cover is completely unique and naturally fire retardant with NO ADD ON TREATMENTS such as FIRE RETARDANT COATING OR CHEMICALS. Why should you be concerned about fire retardant chemicals in mattresses? Click here for more information.

We have a method patent pending on our technology. Our unique Cottonsafe® fabric using organic cotton and wool means no fire-retardant chemicals are necessary to meet the strict UK fire safety standards.  Academic research has proved that Cottonsafe® is the safest mattress on the market – see here.

Cottonsafe® is a blend of organic cotton with natural wool with built in fire barriers. Click here to find out more about Cottonsafe®.

The Budleigh Cottonsafe® cover is finished with eight air vents and four carrying handles.

Budleigh Fillings

Within the body of the mattress our Dartmoor wool is hand teased. Hand teasing is a labour-intensive process and is a method of separating the fibres of the natural fillings used in the layers of the mattress by hand. It is necessary to tease the natural fibres of our Dartmoor wool when used carefully by hand, working through the strands to remove any impurities in order to achieve an even layer of soft and natural aeriated filling.

We use a little ethically sourced horsehair pad. It has been a staple ingredient of traditional mattresses for decades and adds unique properties increasing breathability and ventilation to the wool. If, however, you would prefer no horsehair simply ask – we will add more wool instead.

Budleigh Springs

The Budleigh spring system provide sumptuous support and comfort. We use the tried and trusted Leggett and Platt Active Support Technology® 1200 spring count in the centre of our completely turnable mattress. The active pocket spring coils adjust to your movement during sleep and to ensure the rest you deserve. The Budleigh mattress is available in medium and firm tension. This spring unit has been well balanced to offer strength, the correct level of support and durability without making the mattress too heavy.

The pocket springs are in their own individual pockets which allows the mattress to adjust and respond to your body weight. Click here to find out more about our springs.

Budleigh Mattress Construction

Unlike the majority of mattress manufacturers’ we use no chemicals, glues or adhesives in the construction of our mattresses. Instead, we use the talent of traditional mattress craftsmen and stitch the mattress fillings in place using flax.

Having two rows of hand stitched side seams you are not compromising in quality. Every stitch goes through the pocket springs to a depth of three springs to ensure the mattress holds its shape and core strength. Click here to find out more about side stitching.

And finally, the crafted mattress is hand tufted. Hand tufting is the process which secures all the fillings and the spring unit together through the depth of the mattress. Once the body of the mattress has been assembled the mattress is put into the mattress press. Long tufting needles are then driven through the mattress by hand, inserting cotton poppins, which are then secured either side with wool felt tufts.

Tufting is the best method of ensuring the spring units and mattress layers remain in position and is necessary to prolong the durability of the mattress.

Because we use natural and organic materials such as wool and cotton with little or no treatment to keep them as natural as possible there may be an aroma of cotton or wool. Also due to the thick layers we use, a degree of settlement will naturally occur over time.  This process may be accelerated by constant pressure or lying in a certain area leaving a slight hollow.  This is quite natural; over time this will smooth out when the fillings settle evenly.

    We have a Budleigh wool mattress in medium support and we happily find this cushioning and supportive, providing a restful sleep experience. We do not notice any wool aromas as we are used to wool bedding and this is a lovely traditional mattress for us.

  2. Sandra Holmes

    I have recently purchased a Budleigh Natural Mattress, and a Pangkor Futon Sofa Bed, I found the Pangkor Futon Sofa Bed, extremely comfortable, which I slept on whilst my Budleigh Mattress was being made. My Budleigh Mattress arrived the other day, and the customer service was excellent, keeping me informed of its progress whilst it was being made. It was delivered the other day, and I had my first night’s sleep on it. I am a difficult sleeper, finding I spend most of the night restless and constantly moving around. But, I found sleeping on the Budleigh Mattress so comfortable, I had my best night’s sleep ever, without feeling exhausted in the morning, from my constant fidgeting throughout the night. I only wished I had purchased this a long time ago,

    After deciding to replace our previous divan/pocket spring mattress bed with a new one, my wife and I purchased a super king size slatted base, and tried one of the modern foam mattresses that are heavily advertised, hoping it would minimise allergies and provide a better night’s sleep. How wrong we were, and as we had a 90 day trail prior the mattress was returned. We started searching for the ‘right’ mattress, and soon paid a visit to the Cotttonsafe factory in Woodford. It was an easy decision to choose the Budleigh, which was delivered several weeks before the initial estimate (thank you!) This is a wonderful mattress, being both comfortable and supportive, with exactly the right degree of firmness. It is so nice to know that there are no chemicals of any kind to worry about, and the quality of our sleep has never been better. Very highly recommended.

  4. S Sargeant (verified owner)

    This mattress is amazing, so comfortable, I have always suffered from back pain on waking, following a horse riding accident 25 years ago, but since sleeping on our new Budleigh mattress I have no lower back pain or stiffness, the first time ever. Amazing comfort. I would highly recommend this mattress, excellent eco credentials, safe and so so comfortable and cosy.
    Thank you for giving me such a restful nights sleep.

  5. S. Vine-Tester

    We love our mattress; we love its physical comfort, and we love the feeling of knowing that our bed has congruence with our ethics.

  6. L. Rook

    My wife and I are extremely satisfied with our mattress, it is the most comfortable bed we have slept on and exceeds expectations. The quality, natural feel and smell are brilliant and it is fantastic knowing we are sleeping in an organic chemical-free environment. I highly recommend anyone to invest the time in getting an organic, well-made mattress like this, every night we are reminded of its quality and comfort.

  7. R. Sigouin

    I am so pleased with my purchase of a Budleigh mattress. Customer service were so helpful in advising me about the right mattress for my requirements. It is unbelievably comfortable – soft and kind of cocooning whilst also feeling incredibly supportive. I generally favour firm mattresses and this was ideal and not too soft. Actually the most comfortable mattress I have ever slept on, so the only downside is getting out of bed is even harder and I really miss it when I go away! I would definitely recommend to others and very reassuring to know that no fire retardants are used which was my original reason for choosing Cottonsafe.

  8. L. Turner

    We are very pleased with the bed. It has a cosy quality that we have not experienced in previous beds. We have found it easy to turn which we do regularly. Have recommended it to family and friends when they are next buying a bed.

  9. C. MacGregor

    I am happy to confirm that I absolutely adore my budleigh natural mattress. It guarantees me a very comfortable sleep every night plus I have peace of mind that it doesn’t have any nasty chemicals!

    Thank you very much for offering such a great product.
