A warm, friendly welcome on board

Heather is a traditional yet quirky houseboat, laying on the Broads Waterways of Norfolk and Suffolk. Maintained by 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.

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.
