Adjustable Bed

5 out of 5 stars

I have a spinal injury due to a DIY accident 20 years ago & have found sleeping in a normal bed very unsettled & painful despite trying quite a few mattress types over the years. I found that I slept well when in hospital as they always gave me an electrically adjustable bed. Recently, I found myself in a position financially that meant that I could finally afford to buy one for myself. After a lot of Internet searching I found Laybrook based in Bicester near Oxford. I chose their Hestercombe solid wood 4' 6" double bed frame with the head & foot end adjustment & sliding mechanism. This I enhanced with their memory foam & pocket spring mattress. I visited their tiny showroom & was so pleased with the comfort of the bed that I placed my order on the spot. the bed was made 3" taller (as I am tall) and the mattress was made specially to suit my preference for a firm support but suited to my weight. Delivery took 8 weeks as it was a custom size, but I am so pleased with the bed. It is very easy to adjust to a comfortable sleeping position whether on my back or on my side. I am now sleeping far better & am in much less pain, so a great result! The engineering of the mechanism is top notch & quiet in operation. Guaranteed for 5 years, I'm anticipating a trouble free & comfortable future. Cost was just over £2,000 which is pretty good I thought for a custom bed. On their website you can choose your options & 'build' your own custom bed in a good range of styles & it automatically works out the overall cost.

Easy to get in & out of bed by adjusting the top of the mattress to suit

Seems to be engineered well for a long life. Guaranteed for 5 years

Not that much more costly than a good quality divan bed & mattress
