HEATHER

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...

Tinkling the ivories


A new addition to the boats' inventory is rather bizarrely a smaller, but weighty yacht piano forte. The piano has an oak case made by E Woods of Norwich around 1930 and was previously kept by a lady piano teacher in the city.

Presently stored at Catfield, we plan to have it cleaned and re tuned, ready for the 2014 season. There is just enough room in the after well ~ with the amount of gear on board, Heather can sometimes seem like a TARDIS. If anybody knows the history of the piano, we'd like to hear from you.
