Being located on a street corner, it is also a cheerful spot as everyone passes by on their way to school, ferry, shop and pub. The ferry is only a couple of minutes away at Flushing Quay. Families with slightly older children often value the independence the ferry provides for adult-free time out in Falmouth, with the safety of the last ferry bringing everyone home in time for tea.
Older village residents recall the cottage being home to a lady who baked and sold 1 penny pies from the windows and relatives of the family who built the three houses (4, 5 & 6) together are still in Flushing.
Flushing features a wonderful pirate-themed play area for children to enjoy and guests travelling with well-behaved dogs can easily reach the coastal path to Mylor and also the beautiful dog friendly beach at Kiln Quay.
The village’s welcoming appeal and strong sense of community spirit culminates in sailing regattas, art events and customary festivals and markets throughout year. A frequent passenger ferry service also runs to Falmouth and on to St Mawes, Mylor, Trelissick and Truro; allowing guests a wonderful way in which to pass the time and discover more of the breathtaking beauty, to reach beaches and to discover the history of this truly captivating part of Cornwall.
