About Flushing

Flushing (Nankersey in Cornish) is a picturesque coastal village facing Falmouth across the Penryn River. An arm of the Carrick Roads, it is reputed to be one of the warmest Villages in England.

Originally named ‘Nankersey’ meaning ‘valley of the reed swamp’, it was renamed by immigrants from ‘Vlissingen’ in the Netherlands, who settled here in the 17th Century and built the three main Quays in the village.

Flushing

There are many fine houses that were originally owned by the Captains of Packet Ships, a sight regularly seen as they sailed in and out of Falmouth.

In the 19th and 20th Century, the village’s economy mainly relied on fishing, the two farms and Falmouth Docks. There are still some commercial fishing vessels operating from the village landing their catches on Flushing Quay.

A quaint passenger ferry runs a regular service between Flushing and Falmouth, just a short ride across the river. 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.

Every year during late July, the village holds its Regatta Week featuring water based activities such as bath tub racing, rowing, swimming, a sand castle competition, crab catching and street market, culminating in a carnival procession on the final Saturday night. Visitors and locals are always welcome to join in the fun.

A more recent annual event held in May is Flushing Arts Week, when the Village opens its doors to local artists and visitors for a Festival of Art. During the week art is displayed throughout the village in the pubs and in residents windows.

The all year round dog friendly beach at Kiln Quay (at the end of Trefusis Road) is extremely popular offering superb views of Falmouth Docks, the Carrick Roads and St Anthony’s Head. From the beach, dogs and their pets can enjoy a lovely walk along the coastal path between Flushing & Mylor with a ‘watering hole’ at both locations!

The village bowling green has a superb children’s play area, with a huge pirate ship climbing adventure which is enclosed in a safe area.

The Village is a close knit community with two churches – St Peters and the Methodist Chapel. There are two pubs – The Royal Standard and the Seven Stars, and a bistro called The Waterside on the quay. The village club holds regular events including a monthly produce and craft market. There is also a well-stocked village shop, a hairdressers, a church hall, the Nankersey Pilot Gig Rowing Club, an annual pantomime, a harvest festival auction, the Mo Tregaskis Fishing Competition, Flushing Art Week, Flushing Regatta Week, and a busy Christmas Lights Group who decorate the village for the festive season.

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. Air travellers can fly from London  Gatwick to Newquay. There is also a regular local bus service.

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. Unlike Mevagissey, Fowey, Padstow, St Ives and similar towns, parking is usually available, and all parking in Flushing is free of charge.
