“Historic homes and country houses, contribute £1.2 billion to the rural economy and employ over 10,000 people in the tourism and leisure industry”

British Travel Association

Historic Houses and Country Homes is an area of personal insurance where every property will have differing insurance requirements. For this reason expert advice and dealing with people who have a firm understanding of historic and country properties is essential.

Valuation of older properties is vital to ensure the sum insured remains adequate and assessing and minimising the fire risk for older buildings is essential.

For contents, specialist advice will ensure values for antiques, valuables, collections and object d’art are regularly reviewed and agreed sums insured are provided by the policy.

Other covers such as travel, second homes, legal expenses and family and classic cars can be incorporated into our historic home and country house schemes.
