Knowle Park is a magnificent early 19th century Manor House on the outskirts of Cranleigh, Surrey, that has been lovingly restored to provide residential and nursing care of distinction for up to 43 elderly ladies and gentlemen.

During the restoration process great care was taken to retain period features and, as a result, this care home has a truly bespoke ambience. Residents’ bedrooms and communal areas alike benefit from high ceilings, grand proportions and an original style that simply cannot be replicated in more modern buildings. In addition to the beautifully restored Manor House, residents at Knowle Park enjoy large gardens with extensive views over the Surrey countryside.

Knowle Park offers a full range of residential and nursing care support, including trial stays, respite breaks and convalescent care as well as long term care. Residents are encouraged to bring important personal possessions to personalise their rooms. Knowle Park operates an open visiting policy, where residents and loved ones may visit at convenient times. In common with all of our care homes, Knowle Park’s manager has a qualified nursing background. The home is fully registered with the Care Quality Commission and has ISO9001/2000 and Hospitality Assured accreditation.

Review of Knowle Park

I recommend this care home for the quality of care, comfort and excellence of the surroundings. I appreciate the way that the staff are always friendly and accessible and the food choice is perfect. I also recommend that the televisions are upgraded to flat screens. The quality of the TV is important tome and mine was not up to today's standards for viewing.

Review of Knowle Park

My granny-in-law stayed at Knowle Park after an illness and loved it so much she decided to go back as a resident. The staff are very caring, friendly and attentive. When I asked Granny how she liked it there she simply said "Oh its wonderful!" That made us all very happy indeed1

Review of Knowle Park

My father spent the last 7 weeks of his life in Knowle Park where he was looked after with great care and respect and compassion. Every resident is treated as an individual. My father was extremely happy there. The only area he felt could be improved was the standard of the food which he found to be rather bland and not very tasty. The staff are delighted and encourage residents to live as independently as possible. There is no feeling of being institutionalized, more of being in a high class hotel.

Review of Knowle Park

To reaffirm my feelings after over two years experience with my mother being resident. The staff are very good and show care and patience. The building is lovely and so much more 'homely' than the modern care homes. Recent newcomer to the running of entertainment is excellent showing great imagination to keeping people happy. Combine all with good food and the terrific Netra. Why say more?
