In 1959 under the will of Kate Alice Butterworth a sum of £5,000 was bequeathed to the Hythe Old People's Welfare and with funds from other organizations Tynwald was established:

"to provide a residence or home for such old people who are either resident of Hythe town or surrounding district, or who are related to a person or persons resident in Hythe town, as the Committee in their discretion think fit provided preference shall be given to persons resident in Hythe town"

Tynwald continues to be run by a committee of voluntary trustees.
Any surplus money is used for the benefit of the residents.


Choosing to move your elderly relation into a residential setting is never an easy decision. That is why we are here to help you make an informed choice to make certain your relative is in the best place for their needs and that they feel secure and cared for. If they are happy then you are too!

Why choose Tynwald?

• We are the only residential home for the elderly in Hythe that offers charitable status. This means we are a non profit making home. You are guaranteed that all fees paid are re-invested into the home to ensure the best possible care and facilities for your relation.

• We are a local home central to the community of the town of Hythe. We are managed by 5 trustees who have all lived in Hythe for many years and voluntarily bring a wealth of experience and expertise to the home.

• Over half of our staff live in Hythe and most have done so for most of their lives so it is likely you or your relative will meet with familiar faces.



"All of the staff are endlessly patient, it matters to each one of them that the people here are well looked after."

"The food is lovely. I'm looking forward to lunch."

"The staff couldn't be kinder, they are warm and sincere."
