Further details indoors

The lounge features an original Victorian open fire and comfortable seating on two large sofas. A flat screen TV and DVD player are provided, although there is so much to see and do it is unlikely you will want to spend much time watching it. This room is the perfect place to relax after a long day exploring the many delights of Cornwall.

The modern kitchen has under-floor heating and is fully equipped for self-catering with a Belfast sink set in generous wooden worktops, a large fridge freezer, dishwasher, microwave oven and washing machine.

Upstairs and to the front of the property the pretty master bedroom has views over the quayside to the estuary. There is a twin bedroom at the rear, which leads into the third bedroom. This has a single bed which converts into a double. Additional access to the garden.

The bathroom has just been replaced to provide a modern spa environment, with clean white fixtures and fittings.

Further details outdoors

There is access from the kitchen to the private garden, which has views of the estuary – the perfect place to enjoy an al-fresco lunch while watching the sailing boats race around the bay, or to relax with a glass of wine as you watch the sun go down and the evening light change in the harbour.

The Cornwall 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 Estury, 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.

Flushing

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, a well-stocked general store, and a farm shop selling local produce.

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.
