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.

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.
