1. Brook + Wilde Elite Mattress
The winner of our Best Luxury Mattress UK Award goes to Brook + Wilde, a British company aiming to create the UK's most premium mattress in a box.
The Brook and Wilde Elite mattress was designed and is manufactured right here in the UK. Following the success of the Brook and Wilde Lux mattress, they have improved upon their own design and created the Elite mattress. The Elite is an impressive 6 layer design (excluding the cover), with not 1, but 2 separate spring layers and some innovative sleep technology in between. Brooke and Wilde are dedicated to providing revolutionary comfort and support for you. Let’s unpack the Elite mattress layer by layer.
Brook and Wilde Elite mattress Construction
The Brook and Wilde Elite mattress is a 6 layered, hybrid design, that uses memory foam, springs and revolutionary sleep technology. The top half of the cover, which is a four-way-stretch cover, is breathable and allows for air circulation, keeping things cool from the top. The top cover can also be unzipped and popped in the wash at 30 degrees Celcius, ensuring it remains in top luxurious quality. The lower half of the cover is a non-slip base, this layer keeps all the other layers in their place, below you, providing support and luxurious comfort. The mattress cover includes mattress handles for easy adjustments and moveability.
The first of the internal layers, starting from the top, is a memory foam protector. This layer allows the top cover to move freely while also ensuring that the first memory foam layer can work independently. This means that friction is taken away between foam and fabric, allowing both layers to perform as intended.
The second internal layer is the thermo-regulating top layer. This layer is a blend of sustainable natural raw materials. These include a refreshing natural balm and soybean oil. The use of these elements promotes deeper and more restful sleep. Additionally, this layer is made up of open-cell technology, which makes the layer highly breathable with added high-level moisture evaporation. This results in your mattress being cooler for longer, further promoting deep sleep.
The third internal layer is also the first spring layer. Made up of 2500 mini pocket springs, this layer provides push back and bounce, which regular foam designs lack. The pocket springs were specifically engineered to move with you, as you turn and shift while sleeping, to constantly react to you and reduce pressure points while you sleep. The springs move independently to ensure that you receive the right amount of push back and responsiveness at the right pressure points, whenever you move.
The fourth internal layer is the wave technology layer. This layer is made from specialist foam, which has superior cushioning qualities that relieve pressure. The support foam layer has added depth and density in the upper area of the mattress, which aids in spinal alignment and is targeted at shoulder care and support. The unique wave technology provides support and pressure distribution, ensuring that your spine is aligned as you sleep or even shift through the night. This results in 4 zones of support.
- Neck support - supporting your head and neck, keeping your head aligned with your spine
- Shoulder support - A softer sink under the shoulders, to provide support and relieve pressure
- Hip support - Supports natural curves of your body, producing targeted lumbar support
- Leg support - Lower leg and foot support, better aligning your whole body
The fifth internal layer is the second spring layer. With 1000, tall springs, this spring layer is designed for extra push-back and bounce, promoting more responsiveness in your mattress. This layer will put that extra spring in your step.
The sixth and final internal layer is the support base layer. This layer is engineered to specifically support the taller spring layer above it. This layer also provides a sturdy base for all your layers and thanks to the non-slip cover below, it’s not going anywhere. This strong foundation allows all previous layers to work as intended, better promoting lasting comfort and support throughout your night.
Brook + Wilde Extras
The Brook and Wilde Elite mattress also comes with a choice of firmness. You can choose from soft, medium or firm feel. The soft feel is supportive, with added levels of cosiness. The medium feel is a blend of support and sink. The mix of softness and resistance provides supreme levels of comfort. The firm feel provides a firmer level of support whilst remaining supremely comfortable. This feel is less springy but more supportive.
Included in your purchase is a free premium delivery, which is a 2 man delivery team that delivers to your room of choice. This includes free returns or a firmness change, where you can request either firmer or softer feel mattress or even request a full refund. Refunds and returns can be arranged within the included 100-night trial. This trial allows you to test the mattress’ firmness, the feel and decide whether it’s for you or not. The Elite mattress is covered by a 10-year guarantee, allowing you to rest easy knowing it’s covered for many years to come.

The second internal layer is the supportive foam layer. This layer is a quicker reacting, firmer foam layer that not only assists in shaping around your body quicker but also acts as a transition layer between the soft memory foam layer and the spring layer beneath. Whether you sleep on your side, back or stomach, this layer keeps you cradled and supported throughout the night.
The third internal layer is the ActivEdge™ Coil Layer, which consists of 15 cm premium pocket springs with ActivEdge™ technology. This layer provides exceptional support across the entire mattress and thanks to the ActivEdge™ technology, your sleep surface goes all the way to the edge of your mattress. Thanks to the spacing between the coils, the air is free to flow through your mattress, which better allows heat to escape, keeping you cool. This layer also minimises motion transfer, which means that only the springs you affect will respond. This works best for those with restless partners and allows them to be restless without messing your sleep up.
The fourth internal layer is the support foam base layer. This layer is designed to further absorb motion and provide additional support. The base foam also provides a base for the coils to sit on, ensuring that they are stable and ready to work.
