Nestled amongst a delightful row of period cottages in the heart of Flushing village, this charming seaside retreat offers an idyllic holiday haven for all seasons.
Behind the fine period facade guests can enjoy a truly nostalgic escape, with its character charm dating back from 1775 and enhanced by modern day home comforts for a chic and tranquil stay. The romantic 3 bed cottage is ideal for groups of up to 6 and has been beautifully finished in a nautical style to reflect the strong maritime heritage, from having once been home to a Packet Ship Captain.
To the ground floor an inviting sitting room provides a wealth of period features including a central beam and smooth oak flooring, which has been whitewashed for a fresh coastal feel. Plush contemporary sofas provide the ideal excuse to unwind and socialise. The charming wood burning stove also adds a romantic ambience to the room for autumn and wintertime stays, with complimentary logs provided.
A Freeview TV with DVD player and WIFI access features for guest’s enjoyment as well as a small reading library to enjoy some quality ‘me’ time during your stay.
The stylish whitewash flooring continues through to a bright and spacious kitchen diner, which is fully-equipped for home cooking and ideal for hosting informal dinner parties, with a country-style dining table perfect for parties of 6. All the desired home comforts are provided to the kitchen including a cooker hob, microwave, kettle, fridge, dishwasher and washing machine.
From the sitting room a flight of stairs lead to the sumptuous first floor sleeping accommodation.
Providing a romantic sanctuary in which to unwind after a busy day of sightseeing, the master bedroom offers a luxurious and relaxed place in which to revive the senses. The room features a king size (zip & link) bed with pocket sprung mattress and designer bedding alongside bedside tables, a chest of drawers and a fitted wardrobe. The sumptuous interior palette of pretty soft crimson, grey and cream is enhanced by a feature fireplace, ambient lighting and soft furnishings.
Also situated to the first floor the second bedroom is equally stylish and ideal for a second couple staying, with a large double bed perfect for indulging in a guilt-free lie-in. The crisp nautical interior finish and touches exude a classic maritime charm to the room, with pretty village views to enjoy from the window seat provided.
The third twin bedroom is ideal for accommodating either children or adults and is decorated in an equally charming manner. Its nautical themed decor offers a sense of restful escapism whilst the flat screen TV provides the ideal distraction for children!
A modern fitted family bathroom with bath tub and overhead power shower and a second bathroom fitted with a contemporary power shower complete the internal layout of this utterly charming retreat.
Outside guests can enjoy relaxing and entertaining to the secluded private garden, which enjoys an elevated position with far reaching views of picturesque Falmouth to take in.

We had an excellent time in the cottage and we loved Flushing. The cottage was very well appointed, cosy, warm and had everything that we needed for us and our extended family. We will be checking availability for next year.
