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 on Thursday 26 June 2014 by Celia . (Resident -Respite Care)

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 on Wednesday 16 October 2013 by Lesley G (Daughter of resident)

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 on Wednesday 22 May 2013 by Nick P (Son of resident)

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?

Review of Knowle Park on Wednesday 12 September 2012 by Wendy Gravestock (Daughter of Resident)

I can thoroughly recommend Knowle Park as an outstanding nursing home. It is a spacious country house with wonderful views over the downs. The rooms are large and comfortable with high ceilings. My mother went there for respite care over several years. She was apprehensive at first but made very welcome by staff and had a lovely shared room with a partition. She was happy to go on future occasions and said if she had to go as a permanent resident Knowle Park would be the only place. We could visit when we liked and food was good. Sadly she passed away on her last visit. I will always be grateful for the care, kindness and professionalism of the staff.

Review of Knowle Park on Friday 17 August 2012 by Melanie L (Daughter of Resident)

The home is set in beautiful grounds with lovely views. Inside it is very homely with plenty of areas for sitting with relatives/friends. I have eaten a few times with my mum and the food is lovely, with several choices daily. There are activities most days for the residents to keep their brains active and trips out occasionally. The staff are lovely and friendly. On the odd occasion we've had a query it has been solved very quickly.

Review of Knowle Park on Wednesday 8 August 2012 by Nick P (Son of Resident)

Knowle Park, as the name suggests is a care home with nursing, set in acres of parkland. The location is beautiful and being a long way from the road is very quiet. Management and staff are of excellent quality and always keen to assist when asked. My mother's room is of a good size and offers a good view over the lawns to the wooded copse. The food is varied in type and style and my experience of it suggests good quality. Having seen other care homes, I would not change my original choice.

Review of Knowle Park on Monday 30 July 2012 by Gillian P (Niece of Resident & Power of Attorney)

This nursing home is a home from home. It is kept very clean, and always has fresh flowers. The staff are all very welcoming, and the nursing staff are very caring to the clients. You are never made to feel unwelcome, and the food is always very appetising. They cater for all types of food needs and help residents who are unable to feed themselves, there is never a rush to finish. My aunt has been there for 2 1/2 years, and I cannot find any fault with any aspect of her care.
