Best Insurance for a Thatched Cottage

Best Insurance for a Thatched Cottage

Getting the best thatch insurance quotation isn't as simple as getting the best price!

The romance of owning a thatched or period property is undoubtedly a positive life changing experience. But living in a home of such charm, character and historic importance comes with certain challenges too, like making sure your thatched home has adequate levels of insurance that takes into account the unique nature of thatch cottage ownership.

For example, the rebuilding costs for thatched, timber framed or just very old properties can easily be underestimated, leading to under insurance. This equates to a reduced payment in the event of a claim and as many thatched buildings are grade 2 listed, this can complicate or completely scupper the rebuilding of your home.
