...and less Frozen Toes-y! Here's a selection of snuggly sleep-time suggestions…

10 ways to cosy up in bed this Autumn

  1. Beds & Mattresses.

So, how have you been sleeping lately? Not as well as you used to? Are you waking up in the night or too early? When you wake up are you feeling a stiffness in your limbs or back, or that your joints ache? The most common cause of this is worn joints, or muscle tightness that is mistaken for joint pain.

To be sure that you get enough deep sleep to repair and recharge your body, a good place to start is to make sure you have the correct bed and mattress for your body type. If you’ve not changed your bed or mattress for 7 years or more, chances are it’s no longer doing what you bought it do. It may very well not be providing you with the correct support anymore, especially if it hasn’t regularly been rotated or turned as per the manufacturer’s instructions! And… now how can I put this… chances are YOU might not be the same YOU that you were 7 years ago and your needs have changed. Our Sleep Team can help you find the perfect sleep system for you just give us at least 30 minutes of your time, a bed is never something you should buy if you're in a hurry, it's way too important for that! Plus, it's a great time to buy a new bed with our September Bed Sale!


  1. Mattress Toppers & Protectors.

A topper is a great way to feel hugged all over in bed!  As well as giving you cushioning and support, you’ll be sure to feel super-cosy!  We have 50% off RRP on our natural Duck Feather & Down Toppers – single RRP £120, our price £60, or our practical Dual Layer Toppers, which pull apart for ease of washing, start at £85.

Another good idea is a Mattress Protector, ok so the clue is in the title as to what it does, but as well as protecting your mattress from spills & stains, it can protect YOU. A Slumberfleece Anti-Allergy guards against dustmites, moulds, bacteria, asthma, eczema and rhinitis as well as validating many manufacturer’s mattress warranties! 


  1. Electric Blankets

 Now if you DO suffer from joint or muscle stiffness, make sure you don’t get too cold as sensitive joints become stiff when it is cold, especially in bed when you’re not keeping those muscles active by movement. Here’s a solution..

With six settings, a variable timer function and fast heat-up, our Electric Blankets should satisfy the most hard-to-please slumberer.  They are fully washable and made by Beurer (with German engineering, no less!)  And only costing 2p per night on setting 1 for 8 hrs, they won’t break the bank either!


  1. A New Duvet

  1. A New Pillow

What better opportunity to snuggle down with a new bedfellow (I mean pillow of course!).  Whether you sleep on your back, side or front we have just the right one for you.  You can try before you buy on one of our super Hypnos beds too, our in-house experts will help you try them out in an unhurried environment to ensure you get the pillow that’s right for you.


  1. De-Stress

Lower your stress levels. You may try meditating or spending just a few minutes to yourself a day to do something you love. But not something that involves staring at a screen; the blue light emitted by screens on cell phones, computers, tablets, and televisions restrain the production of melatonin, the hormone that controls your sleep/wake cycle or circadian rhythm. Reducing melatonin makes it harder to fall and stay asleep.


A great way to de-stress is by enjoying one of our Neom well-being products; an all-natural, paraben-free organic product, using 19 essential oils including Lavender, Sweet Basil and Jasmine. The Scent-to-Sleep range has been created to work on a hormonal level; those essential oils expertly blended to help you relax and prepare for deep sleep. There are hand lotions, Tranquility scented candles and a new diffuser pod to help you fill the room with your favourite relaxing Neom fragrance.

Remember, you can’t look good if you don’t feel good and you can now feel good for less because we’re offering a FREE Neom Pillow Mist atomiser worth £20 when you buy 2 full-size Neom products!

  1. Brushed Cotton Sheets

With a snuggle factor of 11, there’s a wonderfully tactile element to these thick, 100% cotton sheets and we have a stunning selection of bedding to go with them, from poly-cotton pillowcases to 400 thread count Egyptian cotton duvet sets.

  1. Hotties

Whenever possible, I like to take a couple of Hotties to bed with me. Who wouldn’t. So soft and fluffy. They’ll keep you warm for hours, just pop them in your microwave for a few seconds first and enjoy! Available as Slippers, hot water bottles (shown in Marshmallow Pink) and pocket warmers to keep a smile on your face on those chilly Autumn mornings.


  1. Bedspreads

The finishing touch to your beautiful bedroom, available in a wide selection of designs and finishes that you can co-ordinate with our bedding and even our curtain and blind fabric. Aesthetically lovely, as well as being an extra layer of warmth when it’s just too cold to get out of bed and grab a Hottie.


  1. And finally, before you turn out the light, just dim it a bit first… many of our lighting products are dimmable, so you can set the light level that best suits your needs to optimize your precious relaxation.


We hope that some of the above has been of use and that we’ve helped you to Sleep Well.. with Barretts!

Night night.
