A warm, friendly welcome

See on board the houseboat, visit the touring shop and relax on the riverside.

We look forward to welcoming visitors in 2018, as we celebrate ninety years since the rebuilding of a truly unique vessel.

Orange Pomanders for Christmas

We’ve been making orange and lemon pomanders for Christmas on the houseboat. Spiced pomanders are attractive and sweet scented decorations for the home and they're simple to make. We used some unripe oranges from a grocery stall on North Walsham market and cloves, kept in a sealed jar that has hung around for years. Pomander balls can be suspended with ribbons or placed in a bowl ~ a modern twist on a custom dating from the Middle Ages.
