A grand Queen Anne house with 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and outstanding views over Flushing quay to Falmouth
Boasting beautiful views of the Penryn River and Falmouth Bay from the living room and master bedroom, Creekle Cottage stands proudly in the centre of Flushing Village. An imposing house originally built for the Packet Captains in a Queen Anne style, Creekle Cottage has been in the family for many years and provides a substantial and elegant holiday accommodation.
Park the car and stay local! Within walking distance are 2 fine pubs, a wonderful waterside restaurant and a friendly local shop – the beach is minutes away and leads onto Trefusis Point with its stunning walk around to Mylor Yacht Harbour with its waterside restaurants.
The Flushing Ferry departs from the quay (watch it coming in from the window!) and sails regularly to Falmouth with its Maritime Museum, Rick Steins Fish and Chips and numerous restaurants, shops and galleries.
The house is set over 3 floors. Guests will love the cosy snug with open fire set into a large stone chimney breast, leather sofas and flat screen TV / DVD player. The original slate floor leads into the large kitchen. Well equipped with granite worktops and a table seating 6, cooks will appreciate the top quality appliances while parents can view the children playing in the private courtyard (also suitable for a more grown up glass of wine when they’ve gone to bed!) from the window.
A small conservatory leads into the outside space and also provides a light and warm place to store or dry beach items – this also houses the washing machine and tumble dryer.
A ground floor bedroom with twin single beds has a small flat screen TV and en-suite bathroom, which provides flexible accommodation for larger groups.
The elegant drawing room occupies the whole width of the first floor. Furnished in traditional style with original oil paintings, the 3 bay windows provide stunning views of the passing boats and the comings and goings of the quayside. You are more than welcome to wander over to the fishing boats when they land the catch and buy crabs, scallops and fish of the day – all right on your doorstep!
Tucked away in the corner of the drawing room is a wooden staircase which leads to the master bedroom suite. This is a wonderful light and airy space with spectacular views over water to Falmouth and en-large en-suite bathroom – the perfect place to relax, escape from the family, or snuggle up and watch the weather!
A further pretty double bedroom overlooks the courtyard. The large newly fitted family bathroom has a large bath with shower over – the perfect to relax the children before whisking them across the hall to their bedroom with bunk beds. This room is also suitable for a travel cot, which we are happy to provide.
With plenty of space to spread out, Creekle Cottage is the perfect family retreat – with bags of character and a picture-perfect location.
