Staff selling Hastens take great pains to ensure their customers get the most comfortable bed for them.

He added: “We do a back test. We suit the customer to the bed.

“You can have a variation of tensions – generally soft, medium and firm. We try them on every different tension [and] we see which bed is best for the customer.”

Despite being handmade a Hastens bed can be delivered in just three to four weeks, Sam said. It’s built using horse hair to ensure the person sleeping in it gets the perfect rest.

He added: “Horse hair is really, really good to take the moisture from the body. It keeps your body at a stable temperature.”
