About the property

Sleeping 6 in 3 bedrooms and with a dedicated parking space.

A delightful seaside retreat perfectly placed opposite Flushing’s charming quayside, this house offers light, spacious family accommodation, stunning views and its own allocated parking space.

Clottage’s name was inspired by gorgeous Cornish clotted cream and, with a comforting feel and fresh, white décor inside and out, it is not difficult to understand why. The owners of this three-bedroomed period property -the second in a pretty terrace of five- have thoughtfully furnished it with a coastal theme to create a sunny, family retreat.

Once through the powder blue front door of this lovely house, a small entrance hall with glass doors leads you in to what is one of Clottage’s best features, its open-plan family living/dining room. This bright room with dual aspect windows has been divided into two distinct areas. Thoughtfully arranged around the impressive picture window at the front of the cottage is a generous seating area with 2 comfy sofas and matching blue armchairs sporting an assortment of cosy cushions in fun fabrics with nautical motifs. A delightful upholstered seat also curves around the window, providing the ideal suntrap in which to sit and count colourful fishing boats or keep an eye on the passenger ferry making its return journey across Penryn river from Falmouth harbour. The owners have provided a TV and DVD for those evenings when you fancy sharing a good film together and the room is also equipped with a stereo and WiFi.

Decorated to match the same light theme as the lounge, with pale wooden floors and fresh white walls, the dining area houses a wooden table and comfortable seating for six. French doors open up this eating area further into a pretty courtyard with white-washed walls, where a wooden table with four chairs has been provided for sunny brunches or candle-lit evening drinks.

In Clottage’s kitchen everything has been provided to ensure that catering on holiday is a stress-free business. The owners have equipped this compact but well-designed room with high quality appliances and a washing machine and tumble dryer have been provided in an outhouse, accessed via the courtyard. This also serves as a useful storage area for the inevitable wet and sandy beach gear which plays a part in every seaside family holiday.

This lovely cottage offers three bedrooms, all located on the upper floor, reached via stairs climbing from the lounge/diner. The master bedroom benefits from a king size bed, magnificent views over the quay and, decorated with white painted walls and pretty fabrics, is a light, calm space. The second bedroom, situated to the rear of the property, does not share the water views, but has a pretty garden aspect and is equally well furnished, boasting comfy twin beds and a built-in wardrobe. The third room is a fun child’s bedroom with bunk beds placed just at the right height for hours of endless fun of boat spotting.

Also on the upper floor is this house’s family bathroom which has been fitted with a modern, white suite of W.C, bath and separate shower and decorated in white with splashes of colour from occasional tasteful picture tiles. Luxury bedding is provided for your comfort, as are a travel cot and a high chair for those holidaying with young children.

This delightful property has many lovely features but its crowning glory has to be its location. For real sea-lovers we can organise boat hire and for those who simply love being close to the action, Clottage is a short walk away from all that Flushing village has to offer. An unbeatable family holiday choice.

Cottage with sea view

  • 5 of 5

Lovely bright, clean cottage with everything you need, in an ideal quiet location close to 2 pubs within easy walking, about 100 meters away and a small shop that has most things. It has it's own parking spot on the quay opposite, so no fighting for a parking space, and a little ferry over to Falmouth is also located here. We ate in both The Royal Standard (advise booking) and also The Seven Stars ( which has a pool table) and both were very good and dog friendly. Other ideal places to visit are St.Mawes and the castle (take the little chain driven car ferry King Henry 5mins) saves driving all way around the bay £8 return for the car. The Victory Inn Pub, St Mawes had excellent food up the side ally by the Ship and Castle Hotel. Also Castaways in Mylor and The Pandora Inn, Mylor are also excellent places to eat or drink by the waters edge. Overall a nice relaxing holiday, we had good weather for February other than 1 wet day.

Ideal well equipped property. Tastefully decorated & comfortable. Lovely view of the river. Great small enclosed back garden. We loved staying here whilst my husband did a sailing course at Mylor. Hope to come back again.

Absolutely spot on!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week in Flushing. We loved the cottage and the village. It was great being so near to a couple of pubs, and wonderful to be able to look out on the harbour from our bedroom as well as from the living room. There was stacks of really nice crockery and cutlery and plenty of glasses. The washing machine and tumble dryer were both very usable too.

Thank you for a really lovely family holiday.

Pretty to look at and even better to stay in!

  • 5 of 5

Clottage is very pretty to look at and even better to stay in! We like our holiday accomodation to be `home from home’ and this company did us proud. I have stayed in damp, musty cottages where the kitchen utensils leave a lot to be desired. We now try to choose somewhere which inspires us, where we can truly relax and feel at home, with a little bit of luxury. It also gives us a few ideas for what we would like in our next home. We arrived to find a welcoming vase of flowers and a bottle of wine. I enjoyed sitting at the bay window seat gazing out at the quayside and sketching the view or reading a book.

The cottage was clean, comfortable and stylish and the parking space made our week very easy - we will be back!
