We’ve just replaced the beds in Lowanna and Allawah Retreats with wonderful new ones from Latex Bedding Co. Fabulously comfortable king-size pocket spring mattresses with a latex topper and bamboo cover (and I can highly recommend them as we bought one for ourselves as well!)

“Only the load-bearing springs are compressed providing best possible support during sleep. Contouring with the body shape there is no roll-in feeling or partner disturbance as each spring works on it’s own. Each spring has a high level of elasticity ensuring prolonged everyday use. The natural antibiotic properties of latex and its open cell structure and excellent ventilation (if designed and built properly) make for an inhospitable environment for dust mites and microbes. This combined with the feature that the bamboo fibre cover, which also has natural antibiotic properties, can be removed and washed provides a very hygienic, clean and healthy sleeping environment.”
