Offering 2” side posts, and 4” centre spacer, this truly allows the silhouette of this cast bed to effortlessly flow into the surrounding decor.

There are no bolts or welds on a Hampshire bed. The Hampshire bed comes with attention-grabbing brass rail and solid brass caps, which adds oomph and elevates the style of the room. The top rail and caps can also be finished in the colour of your choice if the brass detail is not to your liking. 

If you like the style of Hampshire, but prefer the top rail curved, check out our Hampton, Cotswold or Somerset cast iron bed designs. For all Brass look, visit our Brass Beds collection. 

Hand cast at our Cornwall foundry and made with all the traditional fixings you would expect from an authentic re-production.

The Hampshire can be manufactured as a bedstead, bed surround, headboard, four-poster bed or as a bedstead with no foot end. It comes in a variety of sizes from single, double, kingsize four-poster beds.  You can order your Hampshire in any of our 13 colour options or in any colour not shown for an extra £100.  We cast our beds to exacting standards using time-honoured skills and craftsmanship.

Every bed is made individually to order, numbered, and signed off by one of our craftsmen. With The Cornish Bed Company, you can be confident that your bedstead will last lifetimes and will become an antique in the future.

    Well constructed, everything I ever wanted in a cast iron bed.

    I like the substantial four main bed posts, a linear and complimentary structure that makes a statement. Just enough without wanting more or being too complicated. Being able to purchase a bed made in the UK in the old way with knuckle joints was important to me. Great delivery team, on time, in and out, professional.

    We love our bed. We visited the foundry and had a tour with Barry. So informative and interesting, what a treat! We especially love the Nickel detailing (instead of brass). Highly recommend! So beautiful.

    Wonderfully crafted bed. Some room for improvement with communication

    The bed is truly a work of art. Fabulous and I have no doubt will last a lifetime. It takes pride of place and we could not be happier with it. Customer service when liaising re delivery was what left a blotch on an otherwise great buying experience. The delivery drivers were fabulous and communicated well, unfortunately, it was the telephone / email operative that let the team down in my opinion. Room for improvement there but the product and the company are second to none and I would most certainly recommend them to anyone looking for the highest quality product.

Our mattresses are made by hand in a solar-powered Devon workshop with natural & organic fibres. Better for you, and the planet.

“It surpassed our high expectations in all respects - beautifully made and very solid - a joy to sleep on. Five star service throughout. Fantastic company to deal with from start to finish. Very easy communication with immediate response to any questions. The bed was delivered exactly when promised by a very competent and helpful crew. We're absolutely thrilled with the bed (Hampshire Superking) which is even better than we imagined! The whole process has been a wonderful experience and we would unhesitatingly recommend the company to anyone. - Trusted Customer via Feefo”
