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.

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.

    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.

    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.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your comments. Regarding the pond weed, this reacts to the weather / algae conditions, and this year it has been a very bad year for this, we have not seen this so bad for many years. Regarding the shelf in the fridge, we have now arranged for a new one to be bought.

    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.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your comments. We are addressing the catch on the cot, but we do have a travel cot at the property and this was offered to you. Regarding the shower, the text for the cottage does advise you that the Annexe bedroom has no direct access to the main building except via balcony. Regarding the pond weed, it has been quite bad this year and this has been caused by the weather conditions and the algae that have grown - this we do try to keep on top of. There is now a new stair gate in place. We will action the other points regarding the coat pegs in the bathroom.

    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.
