HEATHER

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...

Saving and sharing Heather for the future


Heather is a very rare surviving example of houseboat design and construction. Berthed close to Wroxham bridge, she brings a unique identity to the Hoveton waterfront. In an effort to support the upkeep of the boat, proper natural water bird food is sold. Local people and visitors love nothing more than feeding the swans, while soaking up the historical atmosphere of the houseboat and quay side.

We are now in the process of formally transforming Heather into a charity. The aim of this trust is to preserve and restore the houseboat comprehensively and positively increase public use and accessibility on board.
