Second Best Bed

When we moved to Dale Farm and decided to open a holiday business I spent a lot of time researching and testing beds – after all, in a bed and breakfast you really only need a good bed, a scrumptious breakfast and a hot shower.

For the holiday accommodation we needed:

  • 5 singles
  • 3 kings
  • 1 double
  • Several futon style beds for the ‘glamping’ cabins

And we also decided to buy a new bed for us and a couple of new mattresses for our own guest rooms.

In the end I bought all the bedsteads from Feather and Black just because of the lovely designs and the mattresses are a combination of Laura Ashley and Beevers of Whitby.  They all have pocket springs with all natural fillings and we get a lot of compliments so I do feel it was worth the time and investment.

However, the bed we get the most compliments about is the only one we didn’t replace – a single bed in the triple room used mostly for children.  It was our daughter’s bed when she was small, it didn’t cost much then and is quite old but people absolutely love it.

Interestingly, I often stay at a friends when I am working away midweek and her spare room has a perfectly serviceable but not particularly expensive double bed. I have to say I always have a fantastic night’s sleep on that bed – much better than our own hand made, king size, natural fillings bed.

So what I would say to Anne Hathaway who was rather thoughtlessly bequeathed the ‘second best bed’ by her husband William Shakespeare is that maybe she got the best part of the deal after all.
