The Cornwall region

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 super seafood restaurant located on the quay 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.

Flushing is easy to reach by car. Penryn is the nearest rail station and connects to mainline services at Truro, which has a direct rail link to London (Paddington) with a journey time of approximately 4 hours. There is also a regular local bus service. Air travellers can fly from London Stansted or Gatwick to Newquay.


Flushing was a highly desirable place of residence in the eighteenth century and home to many wealthy Packet Ship captains and their families. It continues to retain its appeal to this day with its elegant candy coloured houses that hug the waterfront, observing the colourful vessels that ply the waters, and surrounded by peaceful countryside.

Sailing enthusiasts have access to some of the best sailing waters, several sailing schools and waterside pubs and walking enthusiasts are spoilt with peaceful riverside and woodland footpaths. Flushing is reputed to have the mildest climate in the UK, encouraging Spring to arrive early, Autumn to arrive late and flowers to bloom year round.

The vibrant year round resort of Falmouth is within a short drive or there is a passenger ferry from nearby Flushing Quay. Falmouth appeals to all tastes and ages with its world class beaches and restaurants, excellent shopping and coastal golf course.
