The Dynes

About The Home

In a spectacular location at the foot of the North Downs, The Dynes is a two-storey home providing respite and residential care to up to 35 older people.

Each bedroom is carpeted, furnished and fitted with a sink for convenience, though many of the rooms feature an en-suite. Residents are encouraged to bring their identity to the home and decorate their room to their own taste, with their own furnishings. 

Guests are welcome to join residents in their room at any time as visiting hours are not restricted, we find that our open door policy helps us to create a community within the home.

Staff at the home manage all cleaning and laundry, however, residents sometimes like to help out and carry on a part of their routine.

We feel pets are important to our residents’ well-being and here at The Dynes we have our resident cat, who provides companionship for our residents.

All residents have push buttons attached to the cord bleeps installed in their room.

Respite Care

The Dynes can also provide short term care. They aim to provide a home from home, giving both the residents and their carer a chance to relax and recharge their batteries. When residents come and stay with us their carers can relax, they have peace of mind knowing that their loved one is safe and being cared for in a homely environment.

Our respite stays include 24-hour care, home cooked meals and the use of dining areas and several living areas in which to relax. We understand that everyone is different so personal preferences are incorporated into our packages, to ensure the highest standard of care that is right for you.

Respite stays also help to build a connection between you and our home; this can be beneficial should a more permanent stay become necessary in the future.

If you are considering respite care and want to find out any more information, the home manager will be happy to talk through the process in more detail.


SampleStay is our free trial for those looking to move into a care home. Selected homes running the promotion offer accommodation, meals and 24 hour care for up to two days, scheduling permitted – all for free. 

We understand that moving into a care home can be daunting and choosing the right one is vital to avoiding disruption further down the line, so we want to help make the transition as smooth as possible for the whole family.

Our SampleStay will help you familiarise yourself with the home, staff, meals as well as other residents, meaning that when the time comes to make the move, it will already feel like home and you can be safe in the knowledge that the chosen home is the best place for you or your loved one to be.
