Meet the team behind Longridge Country Estate

Tim Bartells

Owner of the Bartells Group, Tim brings over 30 years of property development experience to Longridge Country Estate.

His “big picture” thinking has been the driving force behind the concept, planning and design stages of the development and he is heavily involved in the architectural, engineering and project  management elements.

As the guy who often looks at something that already works well, then asks: “how can we make it better?”, Tim’s vision is to propel retirement village living into the future, using design and technology to support the three pillars of Comfort, Community and Care, and he is committed to ensuring that the highest standards are achieved and maintained.

Jenny Wilson

Jenny’s professional background in tourism, events, employment and community has brought a  people focused view to the team which has been invaluable. She has meticulously envisaged the day to day living of Longridge residents and added countless details to make life just that extra bit more pleasant, easy and inspiring for them. Studies show that activity, stimulation, a connection with nature and strong community ties are all vital for greater health and happiness in our later years and, as a passionate believer in the wellbeing of people and the planet, Jenny is instrumental in ensuring that Longridge Country Estate encompasses all of these values to provide the best possible living environment for our residents to thrive in for many years to come.
