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.

                                                              Lovely cosy cottage, very well equipped with fantastic views across the estuary. Five minute walk into Falmouth with all it has to offer. Hope to return.

                                                              Pretty cottage in a lovely village

                                                              Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Quay View. The booking and arrival process was faultless and the cottage was exactly as described, very clean and well equipped. Flushing is a wonderful village, very friendly with 2 great pubs and yet just a few minutes from Falmouth town centre. All in all a lovely holiday.

                                                              Great house in a super village - a real slice of Cornish life at it's best!

                                                              The house was bright, clean and very well equipped and the location was super - the village has 2 great pubs and a busy shop. We particularly like The Seven Stars - great food and very friendly. Take the ferry to Falmouth, it runs every 30 minutes and the kids loved it. We would definitely recommend this house.
