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.


Care is provided by dedicated, friendly staff under the professional supervision of the Registered Manager. All staff are regularly trained and provide cheerful and sympathetic care at all times of the night or day.
