Our professional services team consist of qualified chartered surveyors, valuers, planners and land agents who are professionally qualified, adhere to strict codes of conduct and conduct a high degree of professionalism at all times.

Durrants are proud to hold a range of auctions including residential, agricultural and commercial property, farm and industrial machinery, fine art, antiques and collectables. Our dedicated sale rooms in Beccles are the heart and soul of our auction team and are where you will find our specialist auctions.

As the original holiday cottage company for Southwold, Durrants Holiday Cottages started in 1905 as HA Adnams. This was a time when visitors would rent a self-catering property for a season and bring butlers and maids with them in true Downton style. Our experience of offering holiday cottages benefits from over 100 years of trading history and a longstanding association with the area.

Most important to us is holding true to the values that have served us so well since the very beginning; it is our passion, dedication and loyalty to our customers over the generations that has earned us a reputation as one of the region’s most respected property, land and auction experts.
