Why insurance is imperative for a country manor?


There is a wide array of property for sale in Norfolk, including some glorious country homes which are very unique in contrast to the rest of the nation. The tranquil and rural East Anglian setting provides an exceptional location for country homes to be situated, but of course, this category of property is not cheap and home insurance plays a vital role. NFU Mutual is recognised as one of the nation’s most prestigious insurers and they have received multiple plaudits for their services, including glowing reviews from Which?, Defaqto and Moneywise.


A large proportion of country homes in the region will have specialised or listed building tags attached to them and home insurance allows the purchaser a peace of mind, knowing that their beautiful and characterful property is covered for any possible outcome. Home insurance can also give the owner comfort, knowing that their contents and personal belongings are covered in their policy. NFU Mutual Bespoke are able to offer an extensive package to higher value homes with contents over £100,000, which is very applicable and expedient for the home owner of a Norfolk country manor.


Nicki Whittaker from NFU Mutual commented by saying, “Unfortunately, choosing home insurance is not as interesting as selecting a new kitchen or ensuring that you appoint the right builder, however, it is one of the most important things you can do to protect your property and all the things that make your house a home. “ Many houses for sale in Norwich will have utilised the services and reaped the benefits that NFU can offer.  She went on to explain that “at NFU Mutual, the types of properties we insure are as diverse as the people who own them and, over the years we have dealt with all manner of claims, from cows in swimming pools and flooded ménages through to fires in thatched properties and stolen garden statues.”


We are over the moon the be working in conjunction with NFU in sponsoring the Norfolk Polo Festival on 27-28th June in Loddon, which promises to be a great weekend in the heart of Norfolk.
