Who We are:  Elaine and Roger Charles first established “British Beds in France” in 2004, supplying and delivering the best British beds to ex-pats living or having second homes in France.  We were joined in 2014 by our daughter Mikaela and we are still a family-owned and run business.

What We do:
Since 2005 we have been supplying and delivering high quality luxury pocket-sprung beds and mattresses and wooden and upholstered bedsteads around the world from Tavistock UK to Taiwan, Seattle to SingaporeMalawi to Malaysia and many points in between.

How We do It:
We talk at length or through detailed emails with our customers – anywhere.  In this way we can assess their sleep environment needs and preferences, be they individuals, couples, families or hospitality businesses.  We then fit our recommendations to what we come to know about them.  So now thousands of people around the world are sleeping soundly night after night on a beautiful handmade pocket-sprung bed or mattress that they bought with confidence from British Beds Worldwide.

2015 Own Brands:
In 2015, based on the experience gained over the previous 10 years and feedback from many of our precious customers, we designed and created two own brand collections of exclusive beds, made here in Devon by artisans in workshops on the fringes of Dartmoor and inspired by the beautiful and rugged landscape and its people.

The first brand, for the luxury market, is our natural “Dartmoor Beds” range. If you like the feel and look of ViSpring Beds, you’ll love these with their added piece of glorious Devonshire.

The second brand, super-luxury beds produced especially for those discerning customers who desire only the finest things in life regardless of price, is ROGER CHARLES beds (

2021 the BBW Privilege Club:
In 2021 we created the exclusive British Beds Worldwide Club to look after the loyal customers who have supported us over the years, their friends, families and associates, and new customers who place a first order valued at £2500 or more with us, including delivery. (This is because we do not sell “cheap” beds)..

Where You can try Our Beds:
We pride ourselves on being able to help people to buy the right bed even without seeing it. Our testimonials from all over the world confirm how well we do this. If, however, you consider it absolutely necessary to try some beds before you decide, we don’t – our advice is to insist on having a few hours to try them. A push here, a prod there, a brief sit-down, or a two-minutes somewhat embarrassed supine and stiff lie-down will tell you nothing.  By appointment through us, you can view the Relyon beds and mattresses at their showroom near Taunton, Somerset UK, and our ROGER CHARLES and Dartmoor collections at our supplier’s fabulous showroom near Exeter, Devon UK.

IMPORTANT: Please note that by agreement with the manufacturers we do not offer products for sale in the UK except to a previous customer.

To make an appointment to visit any of our manufacturers showrooms, please call us now on 0044.1752.846157 or email us at

Finally, if you contact us you will be speaking with Roger or Mikaela in person, both being directors of the company. If we are not available you will speak with our friend Jamie who will gladly take your message in person. If you get through to an Answerphone or Voicemail, please do not leave a message but try again later.  We are proud to have such a hands-on approach and look forward to speaking with you soon on 0044.1752.846157.
