Welcome to The Barn Auction House


Following October's auction the government announced there will be another lockdown in England for at least a month.  The government guidelines state that all non-essential businesses must close, this includes auction houses and so for the month of November The Barn Auction House will close to the public. I hope to resume auctions in December.

Plans for the coming weeks are to continue to operate in a similar manner to how I did during the previous lockdown. Items will be listed for auction on my ebay platform ruth-thebarnauctionhouse If you wish to contact me directly about any item listed please telephone me on 01452 762900.

I ask all of our clients to book an appointment for collection or consignment in the outdoor area beside The Barn entrance.  I will continue to accept items for our future sales. Observance of social distancing and personal safety will be taken into account at all times. Please wear a face covering.

I want to reassure everyone that the safety of clients and the team here is very important to me. I will endeavour to  continue to provide a high level of service to buyers and sellers.

Thank you for your continued support during these difficult times.


Welcome to The Barn Auction House and Emporium situated on the edge of the stunning Forest of Dean with easy access from the A48. The Barn is a family run business proud to use local suppliers and promote local services. We actively encourage re-use and recycling through the auction by selling items that are in working order and furniture suitable for upcycling and refurbishment.

An average year sees us selling over 12,000 lots ensuring there is something for everyone. Viewing is by appointment, or on the day of the sale from midday. Entries are welcome from the Tuesday following the previous sale.

Our auctions are classed as general auctions, selling everything from a box of mixed china to stunning jewellery and diverse antiques. Our stock is varied thanks to the local community who bring in their unique items and the numerous house clearance companies that use our professional, no-fuss service to sell intriguing items.

We also offer specialist events throughout the year, such as toy auctions and garden auctions (usually run outside in the Summer). So keep an eye on our event calendar for those extra dates, or like us on Facebook to get regular updates! We are always happy to see you at The Barn to offer advice and valuations. Pop in and see us and don’t forget to visit our Emporium onsite which sells a range of bargains all year round.
