“The UK’s picturesque countryside owes much to the generations of owners and farmers who have helped shape it over the years”

Countryside Insurance Services

Many country estates have conservation schemes on their land, a trend set to continue in England and Wales with the introduction of Environmental Stewardship. These schemes involve long-term voluntary agreements to manage and enhance the environment.

There are a limited number of insurers offering cover for estates in the UK. As a specialist estates insurance broker, Countryside have access to all of the main providers and the full range of schemes and wider cover wordings available.

Cover can be arranged on a blanket cover basis, for all properties forming part of an estate. This will include diversification of the use of the buildings and special covers to allow damaged buildings to be re-instated on separate parts of the estate and to cover land agents fees.
