The story

Established in 1840, Somnus has over 175 years’ experience creating luxury handmade beds and mattresses that are at the forefront of technological innovation. Every Somnus mattress is British by design: from the locally sourced natural upholstery fillings they use inside each pocket sprung mattress, to the British craftsmen that assemble them. It’s a traditional way of creating quality beds that they’ve kept alive for five generations – a tradition that always puts luxury and comfort first.


Sheep Experts. Sleep Designers

Somnus are committed to reducing their carbon footprint, growing their own resources locally and sourcing others close to home. They have their own farm in North Yorkshire, where they tend a very special flock of sheep and alpacas that are behind the Yorkshire Dales Eco Wool and alpaca fleece that you’ll find inside Somnus beds.

They also grow the flax and hemp crops on their Yorkshire farm, which are layered into there sumptuous mattresses. It is a sustainable approach that guarantees their blend of upholstery is always 100% natural, ensuring supreme breathability and temperature control.
