The local MP for Guildford, Anne Milton, visited Knowle Park Care Home in Cranleigh on Friday January 15.

During her visit, Anne Milton met and talked to the manager, care team and residents, also receiving a full tour of the home.

Athena Stevens, home manager at Knowle Park, said: “It is really appreciated that our local MP takes the time out of her very busy schedule to visit us and meet our residents.

“The visit was important to us as it enabled us to demonstrate the excellent work we do here as well as show the beautiful house and surroundings.”

Knowle Park is a magnificent early 19th century manor house, which has been lovingly restored to provide excellent residential, nursing and dementia care for up to 43 older people. Residents’ bedrooms and communal areas all benefit from spacious rooms, high ceilings, grand proportions and an original style. In addition to the beautifully restored manor house, residents also enjoy some nine acres of stunning parkland with extensive views over the Surrey countryside.

Knowle Park meets all national CQC standards and is rated 9.6 out of 10 by independent reviewers on carehome.co.uk.

Knowle Park is a part of the Caring Homes Group, which was established in 1994 by Helena and Paul Jeffery.

Since then, the company has grown to become one of the most highly respected independent care and support providers in the UK, and remains family run.
