“SIR – I would like to tell you about the Christmas Day which my wife and I spent at Milton Ernest Hall.”
As we are fast approaching our century we decided, two years ago, that the time had come to give up the struggle of looking after ourselves and, after much cogitation and heart-searching, selected the hall for the few years left to us. We are delighted with that choice and especially after experiencing the superb day which we had on December 25th 2011.
Every effort had been made to make the occasion, starting some days before, with the quite lavish decorations which had entailed so much thought and work.
We were awakened for breakfast as usual and when ready, we went downstairs to be greeted warmly by all members of staff. Champagne and snacks appeared and we went into the decorated dining room and a Christmas lunch was served which we all enjoyed – nothing had been overlooked.
We had reservations as to what the day would be like as it was the first Christmas that we had spent away from our family but our fears were quite unfounded. We cannot but praise the effort that had gone into making this a memorable day.
