Flushing, Falmouth, Cornwall - Guide to Flushing Self Catering

Flushing 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 Estuary, Falmouth Bay and Mylor Yacht Harbour all within reach. Flushing also has a Sailing Club that welcomes guests, and its own dog-friendly beach.

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.

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.

                                                              Definitely a 5 Star property!

                                                              5 of 5
                                                              The Blue House exceeded our expectations in every way. The location was superb – Flushing is a really unspoiled Cornish village yet just a hop across the bay on the ferry from the more commercialised town of Falmouth. The ferry incidentally is great fun! The house was spotlessly clean and extremely well presented – the 5 Star rating from Visit Cornwall was well deserved and the owners are obviously keen to maintain that standard throughout, as when we visited just before Christmas it had been re-decorated throughout and it was absolutely pristine. High specification kitchen, two lovely bathrooms and comfortable beds made for a perfect stay, and the efficient central heating complemented by the wood burner kept us toasty warm. Well equipped for self-catering, we loved it here – the best holiday house we have rented by far, and there have been quite a few!

Local Pubs and a good fish restaurant doing some delicious food at very reasonable prices. All within walking distance! Only a stone’s throw from the sea with some beautiful beaches. Some lovely walks to walk off all those cream teas! All in all just what the Doctor ordered. Will definitely be back!

                                                              We were looking for somewhere to enjoy the fresh Cornish Air, great food and friendly locals. In the evening, close the door light a fire and pour a glass of wine...and that is just what we found!! Thank you for sharing your lovely home, warm cosy and welcoming - everything we needed for a wonderful holiday.
