About us

Posted by Richard Hacker on 20/07/2018 in About us

Our workshops are located in the beautiful countryside of Devon just outside of Exeter. It is here that we make what we consider to be the the most affordable and comfortable range of solid wooden bed frames and bedsteads available. We do not mass produce our beds, each one is carefully made by hand and pre assembled just to make sure everything is as it should be. We are a small business and take great pride in offering a bespoke and personal service and are happy to answer any questions you the customer may have. All of our wooden bed frames and wooden headboards carry a 20 year guarantee against faulty workmanship. If you have an odd size mattress or would like the legs of the bed to be a bit higher or lower then we are keen that you get the bed you really want.

Our designs are contemporary and uncluttered, following simple lines to bring out the best in the quality timber we use.

We are confident that the traditional beds and mattresses we sell will go a long way to making sure your bedroom is a place of relaxation and tranquility and where you will enjoy a good nights sleep.

All of our beds have a slatted base with a maximum spacing of 30 mm (1.25 ins). This offers excellent support and also enables the mattress to breath and air to circulate around it. All beds over 90 cm (3 ft) wide have a centre support rail which prevents any sagging of the slats and helps extend the life of your mattress.

We use what we consider to be the best bed fixings on the market and not only do they ensure there will be no movement on the joints but also that the bed can be taken apart and reassembled multiple times without causing any weakness to the structure. Easy to follow instructions and the necessary tools are provided.

Whilst we enjoy being in the business of making wooden bed frames we are also very aware of our impact on the environment. We make sure all our timber is sourced from sustainable stock and the timber merchants we use are accredited to various bodies that uphold the sustainability ethos. We do not use any man made boards so all bed frames are MDF free and ply wood free. All waste wood generated in the form of off cuts or sawdust are used throughout the winter in wood burners to heat our workshops

We only used water based stains to finish our Wooden bed frames and Bedsteads. These are low odour and low in VOC content. The colours we offer are white, dove grey, light oak and dark oak. All allow the grain of the wood to show through so the beauty of real wood is enhanced and protected at the same time. We are happy to send samples on request.

Once you have decided on a bed frame the next step is to choose a mattress. One of our 1000 pocket spring or 1500 pocket spring mattresses offers superb support and comfort. Made especially for us by a local company they carry the Feelgood Eco beds logo and a 10 year warranty against faulty craftsmanship. All are hand made with 2 rows of side stitching and padded with local Dartmoor sheeps wool which has been organically washed and adds allergy free comfort.

And Finally getting your bed order to you. We currently use 2 independent couriers for the U.K. We have tried many over the years and are now confident that we use 2 of the most reliable, careful and helpful delivery companies out there. We continually get great feedback about them from our customers. They will give plenty of notice and a 2 hour time slot for the day of delivery. We also use a third company for any beds being delivered to Europe, who again have proven to be very reliable.
