Dartmoor Auctions is owned by the Penrose family – purveyors of the finest plants via Bowdens Nursery, with an enviable record of 36 Gold Medals at RHS Chelsea Flower Shows.
Tim and Ruth Penrose acquired the business from John Colpoys Wood, who traded as "The Dartmoor Auctioneer" and who had been in business for 15 years in Chagford and the surrounding areas. John continues to work with us as a consultant.
Our quarterly auctions now have a very popular Friday preview evening with wine and nibbles, on-line as well as live bidding, large screens to highlight items under the hammer, and efficient IT systems ensuring smooth tracking and transactions.
We have recently been expanding our associated Move Me house removals and clearances business, having undertaken numerous removals in Chagford and the outlying areas.
