Bere Peninsula branch

19 Fore Street Bere Alston Devon PL20 7AA

Almost an island within a county, this unique swathe of land lies between the Rivers Tamar and Tavy, which join to the south and are only separated by a narrow section to the north. Rich farmland contrasts with the dramatic Dartmoor background and the mild estuary influenced climate has made the area a haven for birdlife. In recent times the peninsula was a thriving centre for market gardening, before that mining dominated the area.

So, whether you are looking to buy or rent a property in the Bere Alston area, Mansbridge Balment are the right estate agent to chose.

Bere Peninsula branch case studies


I received excellent advice and support through the local Mansbridge Balment office in Bere Alston on my recent house purchase. Trish & Julie in that office know the area really well and were a big help chasing up solicitors etc as the purchase progressed to its successful conclusion.


Valuation was accurate; brochure photos and description fair and representative, leading to frequent viewing. Staff at Bere Alston branch were personable and knowledgeable, with good communication. Co-ordination with buyers and solicitors towards sale and completion was efficient. Moving day passed without a hitch with subsequent loose ends tied nicely.


Mrs Milne in the Bere Alston branch was outstanding in every way . She went beyond the call of duty during the period when the offices weren't open and was always on top of the whole process . She was very knowledgeable when asked for information on the local area and happily answered any questions we had . Thank you for everything and all your hard work !


We purchased and sold through Mansbridge Balment. Various members of staff in the Bere Alston, Tavistock and Yelverton were very helpful thoroughout the entire purchase and sale process. I would highly recommend this company to any prospective vendor or purchaser.

Ruth Nevin

Lovely agents who were always quick and gave us honest tours of the properties. They kept in touch and helped with communication between parties very well. They've gone above and beyond making me feel welcome in the Village. Couldn't have been better!


Efficient caring support during the sale of my late stepmothers home. Can not recommend highly enough. Will certainly use Mansbridge Balment when we hope to move next year

Andrea Birtwhistle

Fantastic service. Everyone we dealt with was brilliant and kept us informed and up to date at all times. We couldn't ask for more. Thank you

Victor Martin

Everything was done in a most professional manner. This certainly paid off with the standard of potential buyers. I was most surprised and delighted how quickly they found the successful buyer.

Anthony Wates

I valued the fact that the agents at the Bere Alston office kept me informed of any activity regarding the property. Each prospective purchaser was highlighted with time and date of their visit, then a valuation on the comments made following the viewing. Initially I was disappointed with the suggested sale price which was below the valuation the previous year. How ever the handling of the price negotiations by the agents was professional, clear and achieved the desired result of a quick sale. In fact there was little I had to deal with as the agents took all the responsibility including dealing with the solicitors. Comment on agent fees One never likes having to pay a professional fee, but in this instance the agents really deserved their remittance. It is a difficult time to sell property so the fee was well earnt.

Michael Jackson

Trish and team are very good at keeping you informed during, which could be a very stressful time, whilst selling your house. The local knowledge they have in their portfolio is invaluable, and a great asset to have on your side of the negotiation. Comment on agent fees Negotiable which is good

Peter Dutton

A superb service from beginning to end, nothing too much trouble and service with a smile. Thank you very much.

Neil Eastman

Absolutely delighted with the service I received from Trish and Julie. They provided feedback after every viewing and Trish gave very good advice throughout the whole process. I would highly recommend the Bere Alston branch of Mansbridge Belment. Comment on agent fees Worth every penny - I am a strong believer in you get what you pay for.


From the initial approach, (Trish came out to us as we were looking in the window) to anything we asked she could not have been more helpful, the same goes for her colleague including showing us the same house twice in the same day


The Bere Alston and Tavistock teams were amazing throughout the entire process, of marketing my late mother's property and managing the whole tender process. Trish worked diligently in presenting the potential of the property. I cannot praise Trish, Sophie, Kevin Lethbridge and Peter Sleep, highly enough. We were in the most professional hands, every step of the way. Many thanks to all! Comment on agent fees Excellent value for money. Please do not shop around for 0.5% less. Go with the Estate Agents you can rely on, you will not be disappointed!

Paul and Debbie Ashton

Absolutely delighted with the excellent and professional service we received from Mansbridge Balment when selling our house - we bought the house through MB 12 years ago and we didn't hesitate to use MB again. Trish and Sophie were brilliant with the viewings, just giving that extra edge as they knew the local area and community so well. Thank you so much everyone. Comment on agent fees Fees were very reasonable and competitive compared with other agents

Sharon & Paul

We cannot speak highly enough of Trish at Bere Alston branch. From start to finish and beyond, Trish has been so fantastic and professional in every aspect of our purchase. She ensured everything went smoothly and like clockwork which was comforting as we were so far away. She was prepared to go the extra mile when it came to assisting us with all manner of help when it came to local amenities and services ensuring that our transition was as smooth and painless as was possible. Her friendly and helpful personality made her a pleasure to deal with and we consider ourselves lucky that it was Trish who dealt with our purchase.


I have been so impressed by the service I received from Mansbridge Balment and the fantastically supportive, helpful and professional staff in the Bere Alston branch.

Excellent Service From Bere Alston

Trish and Sophie from the Bere Alston branch kept a constant flow of potential buyers to view our property with a fair priced offer to purchase being accepted after a short time. They along with support from the team in Tavistock kept us informed and advised through to the completion of the sale. An excellent service.

Keith Maynard

1 word for Trish - EXCEPTIONAL. Just fantastic and professional service was provided by Trish. I was living in Perth, Australia and Trish did everything to ensure a successful sale of the property for me
