On reflection

The festivities have taken place and however big or small they’ve been this year, our hearts and tummies feel full as our minds turn to reflect on what the New Year holds. We’re all holding out hope for a better year in 2021 and, at Millbrook Beds, we’ve every reason to feel excited about what...

The January sales and New Year offers are starting to pop up with some of the best seasonal furniture offers available in January. But, if you’re undecided whether a new bed should be on your New Year sale shopping list, one way to get off the fence is to take a bed MOT.  Quick, free...

But isn’t it funny how...

The nest

As parents, the nests we create are important. We want our homes to be nurturing spaces where our children feel safe, loved and where they can have time off from the pressures of school and friendships.

But, looking at your bedroom, would...

Sleep is served

There’s many things we’ll likely remember when we look back on 2020 in years to come, and one of those memories may well have to do with remembering the year that Britain got back to baking. Literally millions of loaves of bread were home-baked during lockdown. Supermarkets quickly sold out of all types of flour...
