This property is part of our Cottages4you collection


In superb locations and beautiful settings. Cottages4you gives you a fantastic range of hand-picked properties with quality you can rely on.


This property is close to Great Yarmouth, which offers traditional seaside attractions, whilst Caister has a wide sandy beach.

A unique building converted into an unusual holiday residence, situated in secluded and unspoilt woodland. A listed building of architectural and historic interest, it may have been used for storing grain. The water beneath the arch enabled trading wherries to load their wares from above. There is ample mooring space and a dinghy, which is ideal for fishing or water excursions. Shop and pub within a quarter of a mile. Norwich is still considered to be the capital of East Anglia and remains attractive and prosperous. The cathedral and castle dominate the city. They lie within easy reach of each other and close to many of the other historic buildings admired by visitors, making this an interesting place to explore on foot. As well as historic interest, Norwich is a shoppers’ paradise, as well as traditional high-street stores and a modern mall, Norwich has many charming specialist shops and a large open-air market. A day out at the seaside is a must for the children, Great Yarmouth offers all the traditional seaside attractions, whilst Caister, a little quieter, has a wide sandy beach and sand dunes. If sailing the Broads beckons, then you can hire a day boat from nearby Wroxham and spend a day on one of the busiest stretches on the Broads, stopping off for a well earned meal in one of the waterside restaurants before heading back to the seclusion of your holiday cottage. Wherry Arch has something for everyone. Shop 1/4 mile.

    This was our 6th holiday at 'The Wherry Arch', we just love it here. It has everything you need to make your stay enjoyable, and that view, wow, I could just sit outside all day and enjoy that. The rowing boat gives an added bit of fun. Lots of space for children to run around in and your dog if you take one. The wildlife is a bonus, this year we saw deer in the garden, it doesn't get much better. The owners have always been incredibly helpful and a pleasure to deal with, the welcome pack is a lovely touch too. Thank you!

    We had a wonderful time at Wherry Arch. This was our second visit, the first being over 30 years ago and it is just as impressive now as it was then. The views, peace and wildlife were great. Our grandchildren loved the space of the gardens, feeding the ducks and swans and going out in the rowing boat with their grandad. The adults loved the wildlife, the barbeques in the evening, and the all round feel of peace and tranquility that the Wherry Arch provides. Definitely value for money for 7 of us.

    The location is 15 minute walk from the local village shop and pub and just ten minutes drive from supermarket and fast food food outlets. Both Norwich and the coast are within easy commuting distance. The owner left us a welcome pack on arrival and a folder giving clear instructions for the property. The best equipped kitchen we have seen in rentals for a long time. We were the first let of the year, so the property needed airing and heating for a few days to be truly at it's best. That is not a complaint. It's a matter of fact for any property left vacant for long periods.
