Dartmoor Auctions runs a quality monthly auction throughout the year in the fine Dartmoor village of Sticklepath. It is a great stop off point with a National Trust property in the village and of course Bowdens Nursery. It is owned by the Penrose family, well known as purveyors of quality plants and regular Gold Medal Winners at Chelsea Flower Show.

Frequently the goods at the auction are from recently cleared Devon houses and have little or no reserve.

Typical lots will include a great selection of Moorland prints, vintage luggage, quality African tribal art, antique furniture and curios.

We use our sister company Bowdens who specialise in Mail Order Goods to provide a seamless and hassle free packaging and courier service. Our auctioneers are Ann Thorp (Resident) , David Force & Martin Bellamy - over 100 years experience.

Always thrilled to hear from customers our phone number is 01837 849379


TELEPHONE BIDDING is undertaken in good faith, but is entirely at the bidder's own risk. Neither the auctioneer nor his staff accept any legal or other responsibility for failure to execute the bid due to human error or technical fault.

RESERVE PRICES may be agreed between auctioneer and vendor. Alternatively, the vendor or his agents may bid – but the vendor may not also bid if it has been agreed that the auctioneer will be effecting reserves. If a lot has been entered at an unrealistic high reserve at the insistence of the vendor against our advice then a £5 charge per lot will be made for any unsold lots.

The auctioneer will regulate the bidding and may refuse any bid.

All lots to be at the buyer's risk from fall of the hammer.
