Mitchells Auction Company was established in 1873 as a multi discipline firm serving the needs of the local community as auctioneers of livestock, furniture and fine arts as well as providing land and estate agency services.

The Company has steadily evolved over the last 130 years and has recently re-located its livestock and land agency division to an agricultural park on the outskirts of Cockermouth.

The furniture and fine art saleroom remains in Cockermouth and operates from a splendid Victorian building as a specific business with a dedicated and friendly team of office and saleroom staff.

The saleroom has increased its profile dramatically over the last 15 years and having recently been elected to join SOFAA (Society of Fine Art Auctioneers and Valuers) is regarded as a leading provincial auction house. Membership of SOFAA coincided with the firm's record sale at just over £500,000.

About the Saleroom

The Saleroom is, without doubt, one of the most interesting in the country. Situated in the heart of Cockermouth in Cumbria, it occupies a recently refurbished converted cattle market. The octagonal sale ring conjures up images of a bygone era and is completely suited to the sale of antique furniture and effects. Cockermouth, the birthplace of William Wordsworth, is a pretty market town situated on the fringe of the Lake District and is easily accessible being only 25 miles from Junction 40 of the M6 motorway.

Opening hours: Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm, Saturday 9am to 12 noon.
