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...

Curtain Call

A new set of curtains or screens have finally been fitted around the after well ~ verandah. They were made to fit by local marine canopy maker and upholsterer, Mark Anderson. Modern cream coloured vinyl and stainless steel fastenings were used. They closely replicate the original canvas screens, which were probably dispensed with around the middle of the last century, when the well was enclosed, making a two berth cabin.

There are six separate sections, suspended between the stanchion poles ~ which supports the house roof. Each section has transparent window panels. In favourable weather, they can be individually rolled up to roof level. Guests will be able to sit out in the well and soak up the local scenery.
