All of the Peninsula Cottages have names as well as numbers. This cottage, No: 25
is known as Wherry, named after a certain type of boat which once plied the rivers.
There are still one or two around, and they can often be seen in the Wroxham Broad
area. A model of one sits in the living room. For more information look on the
Norfolk Broads section of this site.
The front door opens into a spacious entrance hallway large enough to store any fishing
tackle, and muddy or wet items from fishing / boating activities. This entrance
hall opens into the main living room, with three piece suite for four people, occasional
tables and table-top lamp and new 32” widescreen HD TV, DVD and PVR. There is an
electric wall convector heater, and an electric radiant bar fire, great for cosying
up to in winter breaks. The living room opens out through French doors onto the
private, covered, raised patio / terrace, with 4 outdoor garden chairs. This then
steps down into the extensive, shared communal landscaped gardens, with moorings
right outside the doors. Around the corner on the river side of the cottage there
are no immediate neighbours and a window looks directly across the river, so the

watching the world go by. See the Outside page in this section.
