Tamlyns Professional Services

Since Tamlyns was established in 1878, we have been offering professional property related services.

Right back through the company’s existence Tamlyns has always had a strong link with the agricultural and rural community and this is still very much a cornerstone of Tamlyns professional department's work.

The professional services departments are based at our Bridgwater office and our team of highly experienced Surveyors, Land Agents, Valuers and Auctioneers continue to offer a wide range of related services, not just to the agricultural communities upon which the business was initially founded, but across all sectors.

Whether it be Property Survey or Professional Valuation related work via our Survey and Valuation Team, Planning and Building related work via our Drawing, Planning and Design department, Agricultural related work via our Land Agents or the valuation and sale of antiques and collectibles via our Auction Sale Rooms, Tamlyns Professional has the experience and knowledge to assist you.

Tamlyns has always had a strong Auction related theme running through the work that our professional departments undertake. Holding monthly antiques and collectibles sales from our auction rooms, regular outdoor dispersal sales and numerous land and property auctions every year, auctions are still a very prominent part of our business, over a century after Tamlyns was established.

Whatever the nature of the professional work we undertake, our team of dedicated, experienced staff pride themselves on providing honest, independent, expert advice and assistance to deliver to you a service that we can be proud of.

Also included within the ceramic section was a collection of Royal Crown Derby paperweights, which were sold individually and for over £500... Read More

Dolls house modelled on author's home to be sold in August - Tamlyns’ Collectors sale on the 16th August will include an amazing dolls house, fully furnished and with accompanying history. The house is really a ‘miniature’ of The White Cottage, home to Howard and Marion Springs in Falmouth. Howard Springs was a successful author perhaps best known for ‘Fame is the Spur’ and ‘My Son! My Son!’. Marion constructed the house with help from her gardener/handyman and a cabinet maker in the home counties; many of the furniture and furnishings she made herself... Read More

Late 19th Century red glass hanging lamps with a secret past - A large pair of late 19th Century red glass hanging lamps reputed to have hung outside a brothel in Southampton, are to be sold next Wednesday, 27th July, at Tamlyns. Both lamps have their original burners and are in good, original condition – whether they ever did act as the traditional ‘beacon’ to a house of ill repute auctioneer Claire Rawle is not sure, but they are still very decorative, and if the story troubled you then perhaps they could have been used as port lights from a ship!..
