Who We are

Mike McGrail and 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.

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 for more than 10 years, from Tavistock UK to Taiwan, Seattle to Singapore, Malawi to Malaysia and many points in between.

How We do It:
In that time we have developed a passion for helping people worldwide to sleep better than they have ever slept before. We do that by talking at length or detailed emails with our customers – anywhere. In this way we can assess their sleep environment needs and preferences be they individuals, couples or families, and fitting 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 Hypnos or Relyon pocket-sprung bed or mattress that they bought with confidence from British Beds Worldwide.

Even More in 2015 and beyond:
In 2015, based on the experience gained over the last 10 years and feedback from many of our precious customers, we have designed and created two own brand collections of exclusive beds, made here in Devon by artisans in workshops on the fringes of Dartmoor. Inspired by the moors, the landscape, the weather, the animals, and the people, all these beds and mattresses contain a very special ingredient: beautiful wool from our partner family farm's happy flock of sheep which are lovingly raised just five miles from and within sight of Dartmoor.

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 (

Also in 2015 Elaine retired and daughter Mikaela Charles joined the company to help us focus on looking after our highly valued customers even better.

2017 Mike retired leaving Roger and Mikaela to help you sleep better than ever before – where you live in the world.

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 confirm how well we do this. If, however, you consider it absolutely necessary to try some beds before you decide, 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 in Taunton, Somerset and beds and mattresses from the manufacturer of our Dartmoor Beds collection at their showroom on the edge of Dartmoor. IMPORTANT: Please note that by agreement with the manufacturers we do not offer Relyon or Millbrook products for sale in the UK (except to a previous customer). We have no facility for showing you Millbrook products as they do not allow members of the public into their factory showroom.

If you make an appointment through us, we will arrange for you to have a few hours alone to try all the beds on display. Enjoy hot or cold drinks and complete privacy while you see which bed you fall asleep on. (That's the one for you)! To make an appointment to visit any of our manufacturers showrooms, please call us now on 0044.1752.289578.

Once you have placed your order:
Your chosen bed will be made especially for you, and we are particularly proud of our 'from factory or workshop to bedroom' service that makes buying your British bed easy and trouble free from start to finish, regardless of your location. Our associated removal companies and shipping agents are among the most experienced and dedicated in the UK, with years of experience that means your bed will be delivered in perfect condition and, unless circumstance beyond our control intervene, on time. Wherever and whenever possible, delivery is by a removal company into your bedroom, with unpacking, assembling and positioning the bed and taking away the packaging included in the service. Where or when this is not possible, we will try to offer alternatives such as kerbside delivery or to the port terminal. In all cases, your delivery will be part of a shared load with other people's goods to help minimise delivery costs. If you have your own preferred delivery company or shipping agent we shall gladly work with them and deliver free of charge to their mainland UK depot.

So, with our "Can Do" approach, we enable people all over the world to enjoy the features, benefits and advantages of sleeping on the best and most comfortable beds in the world – lovingly made for you in Great Britain. No matter where you are, it's our mission to help you sleep better than you have ever slept before. Many of our testimonials confirm our success.
