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 Residential Home is a secure and comfortable home tucked away in a pleasant hillside position in Hythe.

The home is located behind the High Street and within walking distance of the shops, pubs and post office. The main supermarket, canal and parks are close by.
