Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 5
Flushing is a Cornish village unspoilt by tourism, the village store is still the heart of the community and provides most provisions, 'Miranda' the ferry travels regularly over to Falmouth from the quay while the pubs provide great food and refreshment. The stunning Waterside restaurant on the quay cooks the catch that the local boats land that day. Curlew is located in the centre of Flushing and provides the perfect place to enjoy this vibrant village.
Open the door and the first thing you see is the feature wood burning stove, this is double sided to provide warmth in the sitting room but also into the kitchen with its handbuilt cabinets and large oak table and chairs.
Doors open out into the enclosed courtyard garden complete with built in BBQ.
The 3 bedrooms all have luxury bedding (included) while the 2 bathrooms come with fluffy towels.

Flushing is perfectly located to explore all of Cornwall, yet has plenty to allow those that wish to park the car and relax. A village store has most provisions, while the 2 pubs and a restaurant are all within stumbling distance. The ferry travels over to Falmouth and also links up with other boats to St Mawes and Helford.
We ask for a 25% deposit at the time of booking and the balance 8 weeks prior.
Dogs are welcome at Curlew.
The West Country region
Flushing is perfectly placed to explore all of Cornwall. It is 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.
The North coast is an easy 40 minute drive away, while attractions such as Lands End and The Eden Project are also under an hours drive.
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 an award-winning 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.
