The Story of

Linthorpe Beds





In 1991, Linthorpe Beds officially opened on Linthorpe Road, Linthorpe, an affluent inner-suburb and former village in Middlesbrough, North East England. Over the last 25 years we have built our business on the exceptional customer service we provide for our customers, our handpicked sales force undergo regular and thorough training to ensure the highest possible standards are met at all times. Whether you choose to visit our store or simply purchase online, we're committed to providing all the help and advice you could hope for, and a service you will be delighted with.

Our friendly sales team, both in store or online will be able to assist you with any enquiries you may have. A lot of our staff have been working at Linthorpe Beds for years (some over 20 years!). This means we have a vast amount of experience in assisting you with the next purchase of your new bed or mattress. Currently we operate from two huge retail stores, one located on Portrack Lane, Stockton-On-Tees and the other located on St Helen Retail Park, Bishop Auckland.

We decided to choose the name "Linthorpe" for two reasons, firstly our shop was based on Linthorpe Road and secondly we wanted to create strong foundations to the local community and the wider area as a whole.

Linthorpe village firstly began in the late 19th century and early 20th century when developers bought up much of the farmland outside of the small settlement of Middlesbrough (which had a population of just 25 people in 1801). They began to create a suburb of wide tree-lined avenues on which they built individual villas and terraced properties. This was during a period of expansion for Middlesbrough as a town. A tram service then connected this new desirable area of 'Linthorpe' to the centre of Middlesbrough itself.


Linthorpe Beds has the same name online as it has on the front of our store, we fully believe in providing the same high quality level of service that has been vital to the company's success in the North East, with our online operations as well.

The internet is saturated with companies all vying for your hard earned cash, many websites are designed to sucker you in with low prices and empty slogans to the tune of "Price Promise", "Lowest Price Guarantee" and "We will not be beaten on price!" - You know the ones! Look past their confusing layouts designed to bombard you with 'offers' and ask yourself... "is it worth the risk?"


As a business we started well before the internet was a shopping platform, since then we have steadily grown our online operations and we now have a fantastic responsive website which means you can easily browse our products and content from multiple devices.

You could be sitting at home on a desktop computer, using a tablet or searching online with your mobile phone. We’re one of the first major bed retailers who offer this modern and practical solution to our customers!

We also have a dedicated internet sales line for any queries or questions you may have, just like our retail stores, our members of staff have been thoroughly trained and will be happy to assist you in any way they can.


We have an extensive range of products for you to choose from, over the last 25 years we have built a fantastic working relationship with brands and manufacturers up and down the country. We stock products from Hypnos, Silentnight, Sleepeezee, Limelight, Julian Bowen and lots more! It doesn't matter if you need a new mattress, divan set or bed frame we certainly have something for everyone!
