A warm, friendly welcome on board

Heather is a traditional yet quirky houseboat, laying on the Broads Waterways of Norfolk and Suffolk. Maintained by friends, she has been home to artists, holiday visitors and mariners for generations.

See on board the houseboat, visit the touring shop and relax on the riverside.

'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.
