  1. Lesley Speed

    Spent time searching but so glad I found this Lovely wooden bed. Easy to assemble though you do need two people and so comfortable I struggle to get out each morning, cat loves it too. Excellent and quick service from the company.

  2. Paolo

    We have just taken delivery of our bed from you. I thought that I would give you some feedback: it was very well packed and everything was clearly well made with premium wood. The instructions were clear and it was easy for two people to set up, although the spanner we was a bit weak for a good tightening of the bolts. The bed looks beautiful and was a real pleasure to sleep in. Thanks to all involved. Very impressive.


  3. Monika Benz

    Beautifully made bed – very good quality workmanship and finely finished wood. We spent ages shopping online to try and find a well made wooden bed (quality and price varies greatly) and we’re very pleased with our choice. We visited the showroom in Sheffield before making our purchase and the staff were friendly and helpful. Delivery was on time and staff kept us informed of the status of our order at regular intervals. Would certainly buy from this company again. Great quality, value and customer service.

  4. Selina

    Bed is beautiful, we bought it in beech after very helpful advice from the company about different timbers. Was a slight struggle to assemble as we both have a bad back; we would have been happy to pay an additional sum to have it assembled on delivery. But now is in place it looks wonderful, and we are delighted with it – a quality product made in the UK!

    We’ve just downsized our house. Feeling flush with the spare cash we upsized our bed, from the one we’d been sleeping in for 30+ years. It’s a king-size oak Zanskar, with a WaterLatex mattress, very comfortable and it looks great. Seemed a bit of an extravagance but it should last another 30+ years, so we shouldn’t need another.

    Very Happy with quality of finish,easy to assemble and the height of the bed in a contemporary design is just what we were looking for, looks great. Combined with Casper mattress very comfortable

    My Zanskar looks great and is really comfortable with the mattress I have. Very quick and easy to assemble for two people. It stands higher than I had been expecting, but if anything that’s a plus. The bed is really solid and hasn’t made one squeak. The optional under-bed drawers are very spacious but don’t come with lids or covers to keep dust off the contents, so I’ll need to improvise a solution for that.
