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.

Seasonal boating

The houseboat is now winterised until early next year. Most perishable items are stowed away on board, however we hope to install a stove in the cabin soon, to extend use during colder periods. This year, a picture of the houseboat with alder trees at Salhouse (like the above) has been jazzed up by Andrew to form our electronic greetings card.

Conditions can be harsh in winter on the water, nevertheless many people will be spending Christmas time afloat on houseboats, continuing an age old custom here in Broadland and indeed around our watery planet.

Thank you to everyone who has supported Heather this year. We look forward to visiting new places and welcoming guests old and new on board in 2014.

Andrew, Chris
