About C&D Rural

C&D Rural have been providing Land and Estate Agency, Valuation and Surveying services in Cumbria, Dumfries & Galloway, the Scottish Borders and beyond since 1988. Our experienced and knowledgeable professional team are committed to providing a comprehensive and personal service tailored to your needs.

OUR Services

C&D Rural was established in 1988 to provide a Land and Estate Agency service for customers of the Longtown Auction Mart and the rural community.

The department was in offices in Longtown but moved into a new purpose built, high profile, office neighbouring the auction mart premises at Townfoot, Longtown in 2016.

Over recent years the business has continued to expand, particularly in the sale and valuation of farms and country property in Cumbria and the South of Scotland, as well as advising rural owners and farmers on a broad range of property issues. In 2001 Thomson Roddick & Laurie merged with C&D Rural, further strengthening the business.

Longtown mart is one of Europe’s busiest auction marts, bringing a large footfall past the property office displays and creating a dynamic, active social media presence.
