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...

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.
