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...

Brass monkey weather

A frequent question asked about the houseboat is, ‘don’t you find it cold?’ 

When on board during autumn and winter months, the stove burns smokeless coal and seasoned wood. Solid fuel stoves provide the driest of heat, irradiating any damp and condensation boats are notoriously known for.

At other times, an electric, low voltage tube heater is used. This provides just enough heat to protect the books, linen and other belongings. We also lift some of the floor boards and open cupboard doors.
