Description from manager

Description

Fish Cross cottage was rebuilt on an original Victorian site and so has been elevated above tidal flood levels and is best appreciated from inside. High ceilings and bright rooms with a thoroughly contemporary renovation make this feel a spacious accommodation.
The dual-aspect lounge diner is flooded with natural light and leads to the newly fitted kitchen, which has everything you need to self-cater. It is simple to keep clean, and a slim line dishwasher takes care of washing up while a washer drier caters for a family wash.

The front bedroom is spacious with a king size bed, plenty of storage space and a reading corner with adjustable lighting. Bedroom two is a medium sized double with a single or twin bed arrangement.

The modern bathroom has separate bath and shower. The bath is long and deep, ideal for when you want to pamper yourself. There is also a waterproof sound system in the bathroom that receives preset radio stations or takes an iPod or MP3.

The modern bathroom has separate bath and shower. The bath is long and deep, ideal for when you want to pamper yourself. There is also a waterproof sound system in the bathroom that receives preset radio stations or takes an iPod or MP3.

The dining area, and indeed the whole house, is specified and equipped for 6 guests - though that would necessitate use of the sofa bed in the front room. There is a small courtyard with side gate and we have provided a café table and chairs to enjoy a touch of private al-fresco, although it is very easy to sit on the sea wall with your drink as the setting sun provides late warmth.

The house is not easy for less able access, with high front door steps above the tide line and a staircase to reach the bathroom. However, a substantial and comfortable downstairs sofa bed is provided, so please discuss with us our flexible options. A cot and high chair is provided for smaller visitors.

Free WiFi will keep you in touch with home and beyond, and should let you update your on line friends with your reports on Flushing life. Gas central heating is fully adjustable and an open fireplace can bring a cheery real fire in on those longer or cooler nights.

Fish Cross Cottage is an end terrace and overlooks the end of terrace on the other side of Trefusis Road. An angled view from side windows lets you see upstream on the Penryn River. With this in mind, when we worked on the interior simplicity was the foremost consideration. Oak hardwood flooring throughout matched to pine wood doors and white walls gives a clean look and feel. The addition of very modern furnishings, high quality touches and equipment make it feel very special.

Built in an era before environmental considerations, Fish Cross Cottage has been newly renovated with a careful consideration for the environment. All waste materials have been sorted and recycled where possible. Wood was cleaned up and bagged for firewood and original stone built hearths have been rebuilt elsewhere! In keeping with the look and feel of the village the original sash windows have been refurbished by hand and restored to full working order. All lower panes being replaced with safety glass.

Hot water heating is supplemented with solar water heating and the cottage has been extremely well insulated in the loft, cavity wall insulation and with partial dry lining. There is an eco-friendly water recycling system that uses bath and shower water for the wc.

Adjoining walls have been carefully soundproofed to improve privacy, from otherwise very old fashioned thin walls.

Being located on a street corner, it is also a cheerful spot as everyone passes by on their way to school, ferry, shop and pub. The ferry is only a couple of minutes away at Flushing Quay. Families with slightly older children often value the independence the ferry provides for adult-free time out in Falmouth, with the safety of the last ferry bringing everyone home in time for tea.

Older village residents recall the cottage being home to a lady who baked and sold 1 penny pies from the windows and relatives of the family who built the three houses (4, 5 & 6) together are still in Flushing. There is also a village hall with snooker table 4 doors away.

Location description from manager

The England region

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 a stunning waterside 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.
