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.

Ghostwatch at the pulk

 

Heather joined in the Halloween fun this year. We picked a large pumpkin from AG Meale's Wayford Nurseries and Farmshop, Stalham, hollowing it out to make a frightful face. The illuminated Jack O' Lantern as they are sometimes known almost floated amidst the blackened surroundings of Hoveton St Johns riverside.

Many holiday makers joined in the merrymaking, dressing up and placing lanterns on their boats and outside apartments. Sometimes it is difficult to tell whether wandering shadowy figures in dark aren't ghosts! Pulk is a Norfolk word for a wild pond. This was located in a vast swampy area below Wroxham road, before being developed around a century ago.
