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...

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.
