Property Description

Wherryman’s Cottage is a detached riverside holiday cottage believing to date back to the early 1800s. It has plenty of character with its beams, farmhouse kitchen and Aga and offers idyllic river views, superb boating and mooring (free 8-seater motorised day launch with life jackets included), fishing and bird watching opportunities; an ideal place for relaxing and exploring the Norfolk Broads. The most popular way of exploring this stunning area, which teems with wildlife, is by boat, but there are also many cycle pathways to explore, including the Weaver’s Way. This covers a stretch of some 56 miles, winding its way through the Broads to Cromer and Great Yarmouth.
The cottage is located in the pretty village of Coltishall with riverside pubs and shops. Wroxham, known as the Capital of the Broads, is just 3 miles away with waterside cafes, restaurants, shops, railway station and other amenities. Visitors of all ages will also enjoy a visit to Wroxham Barns, where giftware, country foods, a rose and plant centre, junior farm and funfair as well as craft studios and restaurant combine in one location. Children will also enjoy BeWILDerwood Adventure Park with its treehouses, zip wires, jungle bridges and boat trips, which all combined makes a great day out. The seaside resorts of Great Yarmouth and Sheringham offer sandy beaches as well as markets and family entertainment; there is also over 700 acres of National Trust parkland to be found at Sheringham.
Alternatively, spend a day in the fine city of Norwich, 8 miles, with its Norman cathedral, castle, museums, theatres, twisting narrow streets and ancient churches. Norwich offers a vast array of cafes and shops, and it boasts an open air markets with brightly coloured stalls. National Trust properties well worth visiting are Felbrigg Hall and Blicking Hall. Golf can be found at Sprowston Hall. Shop

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. We had a most enjoyable week and found the cottage to be very comfortable and clean. The Aga kept us beautifully warm. The boat was a great asset and we thoroughly enjoyed our trips out on it. Altogether a great cottage in an excellent location. March 2012.
  2. If never used an Aga before read the cookbook at the cottage and you will never want to use conventional cooking again. It’s brilliant! We expected a dingy when it said there was a boat to use but it’s huge. It made our holiday! Oct 2011.
  3. Lovely cottage. Beautiful location. Owners very helpful. April 2011.
  4. We liked the character, location and the views. Oct 2010.
  5. We loved the position and the facilities and it was so relaxing - Sarah was very helpful with the boat which made our holiday. July 2010.
  6. Great location, set in quiet no through road. Fantastic garden with amazing view overlooking the river. Inside the house is extremely spacious, large families certainly wouldn’t feel cramped. Downstairs rooms are great; ideal for elderly or teenagers wanting their own space. July 2010.
  7. Back of property backed directly onto river,a day boat was available for the week which was an excellent bonus and really made the holiday. The cottage itself was very clean and well equiped and cosy. April 2010.
  8. Very good location of cottage and quite spacious. April 2010.
