Pocket Sprung Mattresses
A pocket sprung mattress has it all - lavish comfort, balanced support, and body-contouring flexibility. Experience support that, thanks to individual pockets of comfort and design, responds to your pressure points to help you get a better night’s sleep.
We found in our recent sleep survey that the average person wakes up during the night due to pain and discomfort more than twice a week. If this sounds like you, let us help! One of the things that influences sleep is, of course, the mattresses we sleep on.
The right kind of pocket-sprung mattress has the power to transform your slumber. As the pocket springs are homed in their own fabric pocket, they move freely and inspire you to sleep in the best possible body alignment. And that’s not all…
Why does this kind of mattress help you get a great night's sleep?
Pocket springs' clever responsiveness is ideal for anyone who suffers from aches and pains. Unlike an open coil or traditional spring mattress, only the part of the mattress that experiences pressure reacts. This means the areas of your body that need it most are contoured and supported whenever you're relaxing or snoozing in bed.
And, because the pocket springs react freely to your movement, they are ideal if you share your bed – partner or pet, we don’t judge. Say goodbye to those "roll-together" moments that interrupt your sleep. We understand the frustration.
Another cool benefit (literally) is this mattress’ temperature-regulating properties. Because of the pocket spring structure, there’s plenty of airflow through the mattress which helps cool you throughout the night. Remember though, you don’t need to break the bank for a good night’s rest. With interest free credit available on orders over £500, you can sleep soundly while spreading the cost.

How many pocket springs do I need?
Well, that all depends on the level of support you need. There are soptions with spring counts ranging from 100 to over 4000. More springs mean more support due to increased points of contact with your body.
You'll also need to consider the firmness grade, whether that be soft, medium, firm, very firm, or split tension. A firmer mattress will offer more support, but it's important to discover what's most comfortable for you. You can always pop into one of our stores and test some out. Our Sleepmatch technology will find your perfect mattress in minutes.
What types of pocket sprung mattresses are available?
Combination, gel pocket and kids pocket sprung mattresses are on offer, and each of them can help with specific problems. Don’t be afraid to contact us if you’re not sure which way to go. But, before that, here’s some information about them all…
Combination pocket sprung mattresses
A combination or hybrid mattress is the best of both worlds. These mattresses have a pocket spring structure and a layer of memory foam. This is a great choice for those who like the moulded feeling of memory foam but prefer a more supportive base.
Gel pocket sprung mattress
With summers growing hotter, or if you tend to get hot while you sleep, a gel mattress is a great investment. These spring mattresses have a layer of cooling gel, which helps to regulate your temperature as well as additional comfort. Like memory foam, gel mattresses contour to your body but have better breathability to keep you cool while you sleep. You can also try some of our 26 tips to cool down at night alongside these, for an extra chill step.
Comfy nights with kids' pocket sprung mattresses
The Little Big Dreams kids’ mattresses have a great selection designed especially to support your little ones. Not only do they have a removable cover for easy washing, but they are also anti-allergy and water-repellent, helping to keep your child clean and comfortable at night. Available in standard single, euro single, and cot sizes, there's one for every stage of your child’s development.
What sizes are available?
When it comes to bedrooms, making the most of the floorspace you have is important when choosing your bed frame – and the mattress that sits atop it. For snug spaces with just enough room, there are single and doublechoices, perfect for maximising comfort in a compact square footage. For extravagant bedrooms with statement beds, you can find king-size and super king options, too! If you're unsure about what size would be best for your space, make sure you read our bed and mattress size guide.
