  1. Why it is important for your little one to get a good sleep

    A quiet cool environment is best for achieving a restful night sleep

    We all need to sleep, it’s a fundamental part of our lives and essential to keep us happy and healthy. However, sleep is especially important for children, as it directly impacts their physical and mental development. There are many studies that show children who sleep well each night are better equipped to handle the day ahead, with improved attention, memory and behaviour.

    As children flock back to school for the new term, now more than ever, you’ll want to ensure that your child is tucked up and sleeping as soundly as possible. The amount of sleep recommended for children varies depending on their age, so be sure to check out how much sleep your little one should be getting in order for you to choose the perfect bedtime for them.

    The NHS recommends that a relaxing bedtime routine should be followed each night, such as giving your child a warm bath, dim lighting to settle them and quiet activities once in bed, such as reading or listening to music. It’s also best that you don’t allow any screens in your child’s room at bedtime, so avoid the use of smart phones or tablets.

    A quiet, cool environment is best for achieving a restful night, and ensure that the room isn’t too light. It can be difficult to keep your child cool as children are less able to regulate their own body temperatures. However, our Little Lana range of certified 100% British wool children’s duvets can help with this as they are naturally breathable and can help with temperature regulation.*

    Our children’s bedding range is handcrafted and is also made with 100% natural products, so there won’t be any harsh chemicals on your child’s skin. Additionally, the hypoallergenic qualities of our wool duvets and pillows help to relieve the symptoms of allergies and asthma, letting your little

  2. Our bespoke mattress toppers will provide a slice of sleep heaven for your VDUB or RV

    Mattress topper adding a gorgeous extra 5cm layer of comfort on top of the mattress

    At Devon Duvets, we’ve been making beautiful, handcrafted certified 100% British wool mattress toppers for over eight years and for thousands of customers who wanted that extra little bit more comfort on top of their mattress. 

    Strange though it may seem, as well as being gorgeously soft and comfy, our wool mattress toppers can also help to keep you cool when it’s hot and warm when it’s cold - and this is down to the fact that wool is breathable and works with your natural body temperature as well as the temperature of your bedroom.

    That got us thinking about beds in recreational vehicles. Our owners, Dick and Pauline are keen travellers and have their own converted VW Transporter. They wanted to make their sleep experience even better whilst travelling, so asked one of our experienced seamstresses to create a mattress topper that would fit their customised bed unit. 

    In addition to crafting a special size topper, the seamstresses had to include specially cut areas that would match two curved mattress corners and fit around seatbelt holders. The result was a terrific success, with the mattress topper adding a gorgeous extra 5cm layer of comfort on top of the mattress. Shortly after this, Dick and Pauline were discussing the success of their topper with the owner of Slidepods, the company that converted their VW Transporter, and he requested a bespoke mattress topper for his own van.

    The idea was born to create a range of mattress toppers for various models of recreational vehicles, including VDUB Transporters (T4, T5 and T6), as well as for customised bed systems by Slidepods, REIMO and Canons Forge. The range also includes toppers for VW California, VW California Grand and Mercedes Benz Marco Polo vans. 

    All of our products are individually handcrafted, so it makes it easy for us to create bespoke sizes for other models too,
