"The idea of Birtle Brook village was borne out of both my own Bury-based business experience and that of my family in the south of England. My father’s side of our family in Cambridgeshire has been involved for many years in providing luxury retirement accommodation for people who have reached a time in their life where they wished to down size. My own experience to-date has been in running businesses that provide high quality maintenance services to national supermarket retailers. My dream was to combine the two experiences to create a luxury village community with an all encompassing maintenance package to create completely carefree living.


I am delighted to see that I have realised that dream here at Birtle Brook, and raised the bar in building quality and service, to achieve award-winning standards that I believe are unparalleled in the North of England. My personal experience, through friends and family, pointed to the fact that people often wish to down size from the family home due to escalating maintenance issues, and move into a community of pleasant like-minded neighbours, while still retaining their own independence. It warms my heart to walk around our village and see how well we have provided just that for so many happy villagers.


People often ask me why our high specification cottages are not for sale, and the reason is very simple. Pinnacle Living wants to guarantee that the village remains a place of consistently superior standards by looking after all village maintenance to the same uncompromising level.


When you visit Birtle Brook, you’ll soon see how proud myself and my family are of the friendly village we have created here, and I really enjoy showing people around. Having lived in and around the Birtle area all of my life I feel honoured to have been trusted by the previous land owners, and various local authorities, to develop this very special project. After 7 years of planning and construction, during which Birtle Brook village gained ‘conservation area’ status, and two years of growing our community, the end result will not disappoint."
