Your Guide To The Best Sleep

We love sleeping. 😴

But in this day and age, catching a few wonderful hours of shut-eye seems to be increasingly more difficult.

Day-to-day stresses are constantly on the rise, we're more exposed to light and noise pollution, and there is an influx of sleep products that promise us a world of opportunities but no real guidance on where to start. 🧐

That's where Sleep Hero UK comes in.

We're here to guide you on all things sleep.

Exploring the best mattresses in the UK

Many things matter when trying to get optimal sleep, but beginning with the right mattress is a good start.

We've reviewed some of the best mattresses available in the UK - so that you don't have to spend hours searching for the right one. 🥳

Your ideal mattress will depend on the following:

ideal mattress body type

ideal mattress personal needs

Finding this ideal mattress can be an overwhelming task.

But we've reviewed dozens of mattresses using our intensive testing processes and have been able to choose a few that rank among our top mattresses in the UK. 🇬🇧

Finding the right sleep accessories

Choosing sleep products online

If this is your first time looking at sleep products online, you're probably asking yourself one very important question:

How could you possibly choose a mattress or sleep product if you haven't tested it first?

This may seem like a valid concern to have, but we actually prefer purchasing our products online.

  • There's a much bigger selection of products online than in brick-and-mortar retailers.
  • You can choose your next favourite sleep product from the comfort of your own home.
  • Online products are often much cheaper - and you'll get to make use of wonderful discount codes.
  • Most of the brands we love offer free delivery, so you don't have to stress about schlepping a new mattress home.
  • The best online brands offer risk-free trial periods, giving you the chance to try out your new product and send it back for a full refund if you're not 100% convinced.

Trying a product during an at-home trial period is actually much more effective in figuring out if it's right for you or not than testing it out for a few minutes in a store under the scrutinising eyes of a sales assistant. 👀

how to navigate website

The design of our website will hopefully be quite intuitive, but buying a new mattress may not be.

We'd suggest the following steps:

  • If you're entirely new to the ins and outs of buying a new mattress or need help with sleep concerns, we'd suggest you start with our Advice section. Here, you'll find answers to the most important questions you may have.
  • Are you a hot sleeper? Do you share your bed with a partner? Do you want a luxury mattress? What mattress should you buy? In the Best Mattresses section, you'll find guides on finding the best mattress for your needs and in-depth mattress reviews that look at all the finer details.
  • Of course, a bedroom won't be complete without a bed, so take a look at the Beds section to find the perfect companion for your mattress.
  • Before you make your purchase, make sure you don't need anything else - like a pillow, mattress topper, duvet, or bedding. Our Sleep Accessories section can help you here.
  • Finally, once you've decided on everything you need, head to the Discounts page to receive exclusive discount codes.
