Here is an example of a Testimonial Letter
One of the most stressful events in life is moving house and even more so for retired people. We found the stress more intense than we had anticipated and decided to stay at Nowton Court during the two months between the sale of our home and purchase of an apartment in the adjacent building called The Grange. This resulted in our having a pleasant and relaxed period before the move.
The Manor stands in its own grounds and has access to NowtonPark with its 200 acres of woodland, lovely walks and many interesting trees including Wellingtonia. There are muntjaks and a large variety of wild-life. A springtime attraction is the daffodil avenue which is an extraordinary sight with its magnificent display of flowers.
Access to the Manor is by ramp or steps. The front view is impressive with its interesting turrets and chimneys and views of the Park. On entering the Manor, one is struck by the high ceilings, beautiful cornices, ornate curtains, tiled fireplaces and the peaceful atmosphere. The library has a wide selection of books to suit all tastes. There are two spacious lounges, one of which is provided with a television connected to the Sky network. The dining room is airy and overlooks one of the gardens. The menus are interesting, tasteful, vary during the weeks and are provided for residents and guests.
Our accommodation was a spacious room on the first floor with high ceilings, lovely curtains, twin beds and an en-suite shower room. It was provided with a comfortable sofa, telephone and television and it was possible to set up the computer. There is a telephone number to ring for assistance should it be required at any time of day.
We did enjoy the time spent there in the quiet and relaxing atmosphere. The staff are an excellent team, cheerful, courteous and tended to all our requirements including attention during the night should it be required. Mail and ordered newspapers were delivered. Furthermore, transport was provided to and from Bury St Edmunds town centre. We would heartily recommend Nowton Court for a short or long term stays for respite or recuperation. We both feel that without the understanding of the staff it would not have been possible to have had such a stress free stay during this difficult period.
