About the property

Right On The Quay - Watch The Boats Go By From The Lounge And Bedrooms!

A pretty stone-fronted fisherman’s cottage enjoying a unique position; the perfect choice for those who like to while away the hours watching the boats sail by.

Situated in the heart of Flushing village, this three-bedroomed cottage sits in a pretty little terrace of four similar houses arranged around a lawned green and is one of our dog-friendly retreats. As the name suggests, Quay View’s stand-out feature is its location, just across from Flushing’s lovely waterfront; the perfect base from which to watch the comings and goings at the quayside as the boats make their way over to Falmouth harbour.

A traditional fisherman’s cottage, Quay View has been simply yet comfortably furnished to reflect its seaside location, with a décor of whites, blues and natural polished wooden or grey slate floors. Once through the blue painted door of this character house, a tiled lobby leads you to a spacious living/dining room. With its dual aspect windows, this space has a light and airy feel and views across the water towards Falmouth harbour. An open fire with traditional floral tiled surround provides the focal point for a seating area comprising a comfy sofa, two matching armchairs and a TV with DVD player. The dining area boasts a large wooden table with comfortable seating for six and a good amount of storage space.

The galley kitchen at Quay View is a modern space with under-floor heating. The owners have classically decorated this room with white units and grey slate floor and equipped it with dishwasher, microwave, oven and hob. The back door leads you from the kitchen out to a small courtyard, where you also have access to a useful outhouse with washing machine and tumble dryer.

Upstairs, Quay View offers three bedrooms and will sleep five people in total. The master, a double bedroom, is comfortably furnished, with a white chest of drawers and built-in wardrobe providing space for clothes storage. The second bedroom has wooden-framed twin beds and magnificent quayside views from its large window. Again with water views, the third bedroom is a cosy single which has been prettily furnished. A family bathroom with white suite comprising W.C. and bath with overhead shower completes the upstairs accommodation of this charming cottage.

Quay View is a charming dog-friendly property which has been comfortably equipped to provide the ideal base from which to explore the delights of Flushing and its surroundings.

Good location for exploring the area

  • 3 of 5

Very comfortable bed and lovely bathroom but struggled to cook for two with what was provided; cooking for 5 would have been almost impossible! House is way too hot and heaters reset themselves each day if you turn them down.

A little disappointing

  • 3 of 5

Although it was clean, tidy, well-sited and pretty, the cottage was rather cold and, after a 300+ mile journey, having to have a cold shower because there was no hot water was frustrating. (Apparently, the heater should have been switched on the previous evening but hadn't been...)

Re the heating, the electric radiators were set to maximums of either 17.5 or 18.5 celsius. i.e. cool. Nor were there any instructions on how to adjust the temperature. Apparently, the instructions were in the file left for occupants - except there was no file to be found anywhere... My wife resorted to buying fuel for the real fire. Eventually, I was able to get the radiators up to 20 degrees but no higher. (The instruction left in the cottage was to contact the caretaker if we had issues. We did that. I've since learnt that if we had gone to the manager directly, we would have had more luck.)

The absent file may have explained how to connect to the wi-fi too. Using the details on the router got you so far but then PlusNet requested other credentials, which we weren't aware of. So no wi-fi for us.

Just a note on the parking - we were rarely able to park near the cottage. This wasn't a problem as there was always on-street parking about 200m away. However, in the height of the season, I can see that parking may be problematic.

Flushing itself is lovely. Both pubs sell good food that is reasonably priced and serve decent beer. Royal Standard is the better of the two. Waterside restaurant was good too. The only poor meal of the holiday was at the Pandora a couple of miles away.

Owner's Response: Hi Oliver, I have an easy way to turn your holiday from "rather dissapointing" to "wondeful!!" Just make contact with the booking agent!! Its really simple - a quick phone call (or even an email or text message) to me during your stay would have enabled me to show you how to increase the heating and connect to the WiFi (I have just been to the house and connected straight away?) in a matter of minutes. We do in fact say in our arrival instructions to contact us with any issues, we are available 7 days a week. I have spoken to the caretaker and they too had no contact from you either. What a shame you chose not to simply ask for help! I am pleased you liked Flushing and managed to park easily, and that you enjoyed the pubs. I hope that if you return I can meet you at the house and ensure you understand how all the appliances work!

Pretty cottage in a lovely village

  • 5 of 5

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.

We loved the cottage and felt sad to be leaving!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cottage and felt sad to be leaving. We had a great holiday - rockpooling, rolling down sand dunes, crabbing, cream teas etc! Never been to such a friendly village, made Lilly (the dog) very welcome. Thank you
