country House Sales & Private collections


Chorley’s are well known for their Country House sales with recent auctions including selected contents from Beverston Castle, Spetchley Park and Ombersley Court.  Sale results for contents sales of this type remain buoyant due to the enduring desirability of old family provenance in the eyes of collectors.

The service we offer our clients is tailored to their individual requirements. We are particularly experienced in dealing with sales at the time of a generational handover of a country house. Chorley’s have been involved in many of the great country house sales across Gloucestershire, Worcestershire and the surrounding counties.
