Golden Slumbers

We are Deux Messieurs who love our sleep, and today – as we celebrate an extra hour in bed – we thought we’d share the places we’d recommend for truly golden slumbers…

Burrow House

Burrow House, Broadstairs, Kent – its memory foam mattress was über comfortable and made us feel out of this world.

Pixie Nook

Pixie Nook, Cornwall – so beautifully cosy and cosseting that Monsieur 2 nicknamed it ‘The Marshmallow’

Southernhay House

Southernhay House, Exeter, Devon – their beds are all handmade bespoke designs, and it shows. The firm Vi-Spring mattresses are bliss, and the black-out curtains gave us complete peace.

Zanzibar International

Zanzibar International, Hastings, East Sussex – the bed, the soothing sound of the lapping waves, the absolute Zen – it all made for a perfect night’s sleep.


Stratton’s, Swaffham, Norfolk – it’s practically impossible not to have a good night’s sleep in that four-poster bed!
