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.

The simple and pure world of Swallows and Amazons

Arthur Ransome’s first story of a group of children exploring the countryside, camping and using boats, has been newly dramatised in a BBC film set in Yorkshire, in the Worth Valley and the Lake District. In an often hurried world, it is pleasant to make the most of the simple joys of outdoor life, where both young and old sail, make camp and ramble around. The adventure stories are a springboard for children’s imagination and provide everlasting memories.

Joining in the spirit of summer holidays and the new film, we have hung cloth bunting along the fence and inside the cabin, are placed authentic items, such as pipe cleaners and feathers in jars and elephants ornaments ~ reflecting the inventory of Captain Flint’s (co~incidentally Mr Turner’s) houseboat, a central feature of the stories.
