A warm, friendly Heather welcome

We are delighted to share Heather, an historic boat, artistic refuge and home for over a century, laying on the ancient Broads Waterways of Norfolk.

It is our aim to preserve the distinctive character of Heather, enabling future generations to enjoy her charms. We welcome you to explore the houseboat and bountiful riverside beyond...

'Nowt but trouble'

Heather broadside, laying at the Bridge Restaurant quay, Wroxham, October 2011. 

Over the last few years, Heather has found herself in some troubled waters surrounding where she can legitimately berth. Planning law is complex and the Broads Authority have a different approach from the original and noble Great Yarmouth Port & Haven Commissioners, who maintained the navigable rivers when Heather was initially commissioned as a custom 'houseboat' in the 1920's.
