Damage to car in car park

I parked my car in a car park on a small industrial estate. I drove into a designated parking space and found that my bumper was up against an approx. 30cm high small tree stump on the edge of the parking bay but situated in front of the post and rail fence I was using as a guide to how far I went in. The tarmac is crumbling away on the edge of the parking bay with weeds present so they could say that the stump isn't within the bay. However other cars in adjacent bays were parked further forward, closer to the post and rail fence. Damage to my bumper. Called the landlords who have said I parked at my own risk so won't consider. No signage in the car park stating you park at your own risk. I feel that this is negligence on their part as the tree stump wasn't visible driving in (I have a low car so didn't see it) and shouldn't be there. Is there anything I can go back to them with?
