spring on the riverside

Welcome, Ahoy

Heather is a traditional yet quirky houseboat, laying on the Broads Waterways of Norfolk and Suffolk. Maintained by two 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.

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.
