From family shop to industry leader, Peter Betteridge - Your Bed Expert has your new bed waiting for you

Peter Betteridge - Your Bed Expert started with a small shop at the bottom of Fore Street in Kingsbridge and has grown to be a powerhouse bedroom specialist for the South West.

Emma Casson, Director at Peter Betteridge - Your Bed Expert, explained the humble beginnings: “My parents started out with one furniture shop at the bottom of the hill on Fore Street, now we’re in our 50th year.”

“We mainly sold soft furnishings in the early days, but then moved into the bed market and now we’re a bedroom specialist, providing mattresses, all bedroom furniture and linen, so we can sell you your complete bedroom in one place.”

18 years ago, the company expanded into Honiton and their online shop mirrors their physical locations. They work with a lot of bedding suppliers and have their own brand Bed Expert, which are beds designed by them and made specifically for their showrooms.

Peter Betteridge - Your Bed Expert are the UK’s exclusive stockist of Mühldorfer as well as working with brands such as Vispring, Hypnos, Tempur, Mammoth and Somnus.

Emma said Mühldorfer pillows and duvets “are the best quality you can get” and said the team were dedicated to ensuring they hold the “best products on the market”.

She said: “We go to trade shows and factories around the world to make sure we are offering the very best range to our customers. With that and our excellent customer service, it is what makes Peter Betteridge - Your Bed Expert really stand out from the crowd.

Sleep is one of our essential processes we go through as human beings, and getting a good night’s sleep can not only affect your day and your mood but also your health. In an average lifetime we will spend around 25 years in bed, so it needs to be right.

Emma said: “Waking up feeling refreshed has been shown in scientific studies to improve health and performance, as well as mental health and wellbeing so we want people to get the right bed for them. It is one of the reasons that at Peter Betteridge - Your Bed Expert, you can take as long as you need to find the right bed for you.”

How do you know you’re ready to get a new bed? Peter Betteridge - Your Bed Expert advises that you put your bed through a ‘Bed MOT’ to find out. If you answer yes to any of these questions, you’re not getting the most from your mattress and if you answer yes to more than five of these questions, it's time for a new bed.

Are you not sleeping as well as you were a year ago?

Have you recently had a better night’s sleep somewhere other than your own bed?

Are you waking up unrefreshed or aching more regularly?

Is your bed seven or more years old?

Is it big enough for you and your partner to sleep and move without disturbing each other?

Do you and your partner roll towards each other unintentionally?

Are there any bits missing, broken, sticking out or wobbly?

Does it feel lumpy at night?

Does it make suspicious noises at night?

Would it be embarrassing if anyone saw your bed without covers on?

Emma continued: “We have knowledgeable staff, trained in house, who can advise you, but it is all down to which bed would work for you, which is why we believe it is important to lie down and try a bed out before you commit.”

It’s not just customers that think that Peter Betteridge - Your Bed Expert is excellent, they have also won awards, including the National Bed Federation Award Winner, UK Furniture Retailer of the Year Award, Western Morning News Business Awards, Customer Service Award Winner, Lifetime Achievement Award Winner, Excellence in Marketing Award Runner-up, National Bed Federation Independent Retailer of the Year Award.
