The Dining Room
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.


Tynwald offers a selection of 26 bedrooms, each attractively decorated and many with sea views. Each room is tastefully furnished, although residents may bring their own furniture and are encouraged to bring small personal items to create their own homely atmosphere. Each bedroom has a call alarm system. Also available is a new suite of rooms comprising of bedroom, sitting room and shower room with toilet.

There is a cosy lounge with colour television receiving satellite with a Blue Ray DVD player, and also a large sunny conservatory. Upstairs there is a covered balcony area where residents may sit to enjoy views of the sea and our gardens.

There is also a lift and 2 stairlifts to the first floor and a Parker bath installed in two of the bathrooms. The home is fitted with a fire alarm system approved by the Kent Fire Brigade.

Meals are served in the attractive dining room and the food is home cooked to the highest standard using local fresh food wherever possible. A choice of menu is provided and special diets catered for.

Residents have use of the beautiful, well kept gardens in which they can wander at leisure or sit in the shade of the veranda.

Family and friends are welcome to visit any time of day!
