The Countryside Retreat

A pretty cottage, with a thatched roof, uneven walls and low beamed ceilings sounds perfect but older properties can be very demanding when it comes to upkeep. Bespoke properties need bespoke tradesmen and this can come at a price.

Thatched roofs need attention, wooden windows need painting and old wiring can all cause problems for a new owner. Period properties can be very rewarding to own, but they can also be problematic.

You never know what could possibly go wrong and that is why when you do opt for your ideal cottage it's essential that you also get a good listed buildings insurance policy too. Older properties need some TLC and a renovation projects are commonplace on this type of building. Even with renovations going on Westhill Insurance can still give you a competitive listed buildings insurance quote.

If your property is from a certain period then there is a good chance your furnishings will be antique too and worth quite a bit. If that is the case Westhill can quote accordingly to ensure that your unique property and its contents are suitably covered. Westhill offers bespoke insurance solutions to suite your needs.
