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...

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.
