As a man with a love for the great outdoors, I know more than most that adventure often means an uncomfortable night's sleep. During my trips, most nights I can be found in rough shelters, tents, hammocks, survival bags, boats, caves and igloos. I sleep on wet mountain sides, tropical jungles, arid desert and in frozen polar. The great landscapes and amazing stories usually make it all worthwhile. However, after a couple of days a good night's sleep in a comfortable bed is very enticing.
Between writing books, presenting programmes, making documentaries and touring the world, one can safely say that I don't have a lot of time left to sleep in my own bed. That's why when I was first told that I would be receiving a Silentnight mattress I was interested to see if there were any differences this mattress could make. The spring-free mattress has cushioning pressure points which make it firm but still comfortable. Although I shuffle around a lot in my sleep, I now wake up fully rested after a relaxing night in a supportive bed.
It's no secret that I love spending time in the wilderness and therefore I'm no stranger when it comes to sleeping outside the comfort of my own bed. It has its own perks of course. However, I would be lying if I said it was always comfortable.
Storm, my family dog, has also enjoyed the perks of sleeping on a Silentnight mattress. In addition to my mattress I also received a bed designed specially for dogs. I was worried as she is a labrador and therefore quite big but I was promised that this bed would provide her all the special support that a dog needs. She loves it and can even stretch in it.
Being able to rest properly is crucial for me as I know that once I'm on the road, I won't be able to get much sleep. My Silentnight bed has become the place where I can plan my next adventures and where I can also sleep peacefully. I recommend this bed to everyone but especially to those who are constantly on-the-go. If you have very long days or travel often, this mattress will allow you to enjoy the best of both worlds by allowing you to get plenty of rest so you can manage to go on plenty of adventures.
