Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Number Three sits in the middle of a terrace of just four traditional Cornish cottages in the quiet waterside village of Flushing. The subject of a recent and very extensive no-expense spared refurbishment, it wants for nothing and exudes class and 5-Star luxury at every opportunity.
Solid oak floors with underfloor heating and a beautiful wood burning stove in the lounge ensure that this cottage is snug and cosy whatever the weather.
The cottage has free WiFi access, cable TV and an iPod docking station.

The West Country region
Flushing is perfectly placed to explore all of Cornwall. it is one known to be one of the warmest villages in the UK because it has an idyllic sheltered south-facing aspect, between the banks of the Penryn River and Falmouth Harbour.
It became popular in the eighteenth century as the choice location for the wealthy Packet Ship captains, and was visited by Admiral Nelson. Latterly it has become one of the most sought-after locations anywhere in the West Country. Flushing has an unrivalled mild climate, streets lined with picture-postcard traditional terraced fisherman’s cottages, and beautiful unspoilt surrounding countryside.
There is also easy access onto some of the best sailing waters anywhere in the West Country, with the Helford River, the Fal Estuary, Falmouth Bay and Mylor Yacht Harbour all within reach. Flushing also has a Sailing Club that welcomes guests, and it’s own dog-friendly beach.
Many Cornish villages have become over crowded with tourists, but Flushing is much quieter, even during peak season, and it still benefits from a strong and vibrant community. The Flushing Regatta and Flushing Art Week are two annual fixtures not to be missed that the whole community embraces.
Flushing has two friendly pubs - The Standard, which was recently renovated and offers excellent food, and The Seven Stars, a more traditional pub with an equally extensive menu. There is also a stunning seafood restaurant located on the quayside, and a friendly well-stocked general store.
A passenger ferry runs a regular service between Flushing and Falmouth. It also connects with the ferries to St Mawes, Mylor, Trelissick and Truro. In summer the Fal River boats offer trips to the gardens of Trebah and Glendurgan, and onwards to Truro. A local water taxi service also runs around the bay.
Many Cornish villages have become over crowded with tourists, but Flushing is much quieter, even during peak season, and it still benefits from a strong and vibrant community.
Unlike Mevagissey, Fowey, Padstow, St Ives and similar towns, parking is available, either outside the house or in a car park at the end of the street.

"Well equipped cottage in a small Cornish seaside village"
Property located in small village of Flushing with two good pubs and local shop.
Property recently refurbished and fixtures / fittings are of excellent standard. The kitchen diner area is a real feature for family meals and having access to the secluded garden area.
Falmouth is easily accessed by car or water taxi. There are excellent beaches in Falmouth, and Flushing also has a small beach suitable for children.
Would return again to the property and village of Flushing.
