Flushing is said 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's streets are lined with picture-postcard traditional terraced fisherman’s cottages, and beautiful unspoilt surrounding countryside. There are two great pubs serving excellent food and a stunning fish restaurant on the quayside as well as a friendly village shop.
The passenger ferry runs between Flushing and Falmouth every half hour, and there are regular boat trips available on the Helford River and the Fal Estuary.
Falmouth Bay and Mylor Yacht Harbour all within reach. Flushing has a Sailing Club that welcomes guests, and it’s own dog-friendly beach!
Golf: Falmouth has an excellent golf course approx 5 miles from Flushing that welcomes visitors.
