Whether you are a single person, group, community or business, Ashburnham can help all types of landowners in the UK including Northern Ireland.

Why Landowners need liability insurance

Owning a piece of land can leave you vulnerable to the risk of a member of the public injuring themselves and finding you liable. A simple trip over a tree root protruding from the ground can cause untold injuries. This is why land insurance is crucial.

It protects you from the cost of any unanticipated incidents that landowners could be liable for, which could result in financial struggle. Public liability insurance for land is not compulsory but essential to safeguard yourself. On top of this, cover is also available for public access, employers liability, legal expenses, directors and officers liability and material damage (such as street lights, walls, fences and incidental buildings)

Common types of claims

  • A tree falls, damaging a parked car underneath
  • A member of the public trips on an uneven path and injures themselves whilst walking on your private road
  • A rotten branch breaks off of a tree and hits a passer-by on the head

    I have a 4 acre field that is securely fenced and I rent out for grazing of horses. There are 2 wooden stables on the field but I am only looking for public liability insurance for the field itself.

    I have 10 acres for which I would like public liability in case trespassers have an accident. The land is mainly daffodils/hay.

    Please would you kindly advise me with a quotation.

    Thank you.

    Hi I have 9 acres of woodland with a clearing, a drinking water tap, no ponds or other water features. I have public liability for woodland with trees, but I want to hire the space out for workshops, small weddings and retreats, also private groups. Would you be able to provide cover for this, protecting me against, loss, damage and accidents? Would I have to cancel my current PL before getting insured by yourselves? or would the insurance be an extension of my own? Also would it be yearly or per event?

    Thank you,

    Hello, we have a 2 acre field which we are looking to rent out for grazing of 2 horses. How much would it cost to have a public liability insurance policy (assume this is what we would need?) for this? Thanks Aileen
