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.

Dinghy for hire

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.

    I had looked forward all year to a nice place where I could relax and do a spot of fishing, much to my disappointment the dyke at Wherry Arch was unfishable due to it being covered in duckweed, only once did the wind blow a clear space and I caught a few small fish. The other problem was the fridge, the shelves were broken and held together with cling film, any weight would have crumpled them.

    Shelves in fridge found cracked/broken. Freezer door seal non-operational so couldn't use if we'd wanted to. Yellow & black safety strip needed on stairs re low height. Cot side doesn't stay in place. One child stair-gate we had to repair ourselves, the other one is broken and should be removed. There are no drying facilities for wet/damp towels, and no hooks in shower rooms for dressing gowns/clothes. The stairs are extremely noisy underfoot and woke the baby frequently. One bed had dog hairs on it when we arrived - not sure if complete bedding is changed very often as we were only asked for loose sheets and top pillowcases, not duvet covers and all pillowcases. The downstairs family bedroom was not used owing to the lack of toilet facilities and the hike needed during the night should one be required! Our fishing boat's outboard motor got tangled in lilies and weed, and the dyke looked like an extension of the lawn to our dog who unwittingly fell in the muck. Very upset over our annual holiday and the cost. I am sure this was a beautiful retreat once.

    This was our 5th visit to the Wherry Arch, we absolutely love it there. The cottage is very clean and comfortable. The kitchen has recently been refitted and updated and is suitably equipped. We have met the owners on most of our visits there, they are extremely friendly and helpful. The location is just beautiful, with lots of visiting wildlife. My husband and son enjoyed fishing in the dyke and the row boat just added to the fun! Can't recommend enough, photos do not do the setting justice.

    Wonderful week; enjoyed the boat and proximity to Broad, Boardwalk and village. Would have liked more local information, maps, and history of the house. Definitely recommend a toilet/shower room in the annexe.

    Our 3rd time at the cottage and it is ideal for those who want peace and quiet with outstanding areas to walk, mostly on the level. Pub within easy walking and serves excellent variety of food and ales. Took a dinghy and outboard to explore the Broads and waterways but of course the cottage has a rowing boat available if needed. If you want to fish, make sure you are aware of the closed season.

    So remote it was peaceful and yet within easy reach of all the main Broads. Having no wi fi signal was a bonus!!!!
