Location description from owner

The East Anglia region

The East Anglia RegionThe Norfolk Broads have been called "Britain's Magical Waterland". It is a network of freshwater rivers and wide open lakes stretching across 120 square miles of Norfolk and parts of Suffolk. It is Britain's largest protected wetland and enjoys National Park status. Originally man made by carving out peat for use as fuel between the 9th and 12th Century it is never more than about 12 ft deep. Special boats called wherries were used to transport the peat, much of it taken to the monastry at Norwich which consumed 200,000 bales of peat a year.The Norfolk Broads are based on two main river systems, the Bure and the Yare respectively, comprising the North and South Broads, joining together at Gt Yarmouth and emptying out into the sea at Yarmouth Harbour. The countryside of Norfolk is mostly flat so there are no locks throughout the North Broads. The main rivers become gradually wider and deeper in depth and become more under tidal influence particularly below Acle. Around Wroxham and Horning there is a balance between freshwater river flow and tidal influence to keep the freshwater slow moving and at a remarkably stable depth. This makes it ideal for both coarse fishing and boating. Norfolk is also home to many stately homes, most notably Holkham Hall, and Sandringham House home to the Queen at Xmas and in the summer.The City of Norwich is the county town and is famous for it's cathedral and its medieval castle museum and dungeons.Being in the "bulge" of East Anglia Norfolk is a very quiet and peaceful county and it's extensive coastline has miles of sandy beaches with small villages and the well known seaside towns of Great Yarmouth, Cromer and Sheringham, and even Hunstanton, the only seaside town on the East coast that actually faces West. Sit on the beach and watch the Sun set over the sea!

Wroxham

WroxhamWroxham is known as the "Capital of the Broads". John Loynes started his boat hire business here in 1878 and it's safe shallow water and proximity to many of the prettiest broads such as Wroxham Broad, and Salhouse Broad and the "Swallows and Amazon" atmosphere going upstream through Wroxham Bridge towards Coltishall, creates a fantastic area to attract tourism, and boating enthusiasts of all kinds.Norfolk Broads Direct (NBD) own their own fleet of cruisers and day boats, and run the Broads Tours sightseeing ferries which can be booked and embarked on within a 5 minute walk from the cottage. So whether you want a canoe, day boat or day cruiser, or fancy a skippered trip whilst enjoying a daytime commentary, or musical evening excursion everything is right on your doorstep. Hire a day boat for your stay and take a trip through the "chocolate box" thatched cottages with gardens rolling down to the riverside and into the massive Wroxham Broad, and on to Horning, the second main village, and stop for lunch at one of the riverside pubs. All can be done in a day!Norfolk Cleaning Ltd manage Wherry Cottage for the owners during your stay and their experienced staff will help with any problems you may encounter during your stay. Full details when you book. Over the years many boat yards have developed the whole area, and created a bustling village atmosphere with marinas, riverside pubs restaurants and cafes, with every conceivable type of take-away, gift and souvenir shops, a large supermarket and department store. You can even enjoy a carvery in the riverside restaurant of Hotel Wroxham looking across the water to your cottage. We offer 10% discount on day boat hire from Wroxham Boat Hire directly opposite the cottage, and we can arrange a luxury bespoke private boat charter (for 9) for that special champagne celebration. Ask for details.For the angler, there are fishing tackle shops, and for the experienced boater there are yacht chandlers. Sailing yachts can be hired from the Norfolk Broads Yacht Club just a few minutes by car from the cottage on Wroxham Broad.Wroxham has good bus services to Norwich and the coast, and it's own station Hoveton & Wroxham, just two local stops to the City of Norwich. Next to the station is the start of the Bure Valley Railway, an 18 mile steam train excursion through the Norfolk countryside to Aylsham
