Fish Cross Cottage
Newly renovated, with a careful consideration for the environment.
Conveniently situated in the charming centre of Flushing village, this newly updated Victorian cottage boasts a wealth of contemporary spirit, in a location perfect for reaching the water’s edge.
A step leads up past the tide line into the entrance, which in turn leads into an inviting hallway and through to the immaculate reception rooms provided for guests’ enjoyment.
Beautifully finished, the open plan living and dining space features warm oak hardwood flooring and a smart neutral palette delicately enhanced by the natural light which floods in through the dual aspect windows. A romantic open hearth offers the perfect excuse for enjoying an ambient evening in during the wintertime, with a stylish L-shaped sofa accompanied by a large Freeview flat screen TV and WIFI access for guest’s entertainment.
Full central heating and the warmth from the wood burning stove during the cooler months also ensures guests can enjoy Fish Cross Cottage in all seasons.
The modern retro globe light sets a trendy scene to the dining area, which is furnished with a contemporary glass table and clear blue chairs for a chic effortless finish.
A pine wood door leads through to a beautifully-presented modern kitchen fully-equipped for a stress-free self-catering stay. The sleek white cabinets and hardwood work tops offer a practical and stylish room in which to prepare delicious home cooked meals, with all the desired appliances to hand including an eye-level oven, electric hob, microwave, kettle, slim line dishwasher and a fridge freezer. A washer dryer is also provided here, for extra convenience during your holiday.
Outside a small decked courtyard offers a great place in which to enjoy a summertime meal, whilst easy access through a side gate leads to the sea wall; perfect for sitting on and enjoying a relaxed romantic drink whilst the evening sun sets.
The sleeping accommodation to the cottage is ideal for flexible groups of 4+2, with two spacious bedrooms accompanied by a double size sofa bed to the living room. The upstairs master bedroom offers a tranquil and restful haven in which to enjoy a tempting lie-in during your stay, with a solid double bed laden with high quality bedding and plump pillows, for a good night’s rest. The peaceful interior palette of white, pale blue and pine wood continues into the charming second bedroom, which is equally inviting and is furnished with a twin set of single beds.
A staircase leads to a spacious and beautifully finished contemporary bathroom. Providing a refreshing way to start the day with a power shower, or a serene way in which to unwind, with a long soak in the tub, the bathroom boasts the perfect retreat. The waterproof sound system with its radio, MP3 and iPod feature is also on hand for guest’s to feel right at home.
The contemporary-style Victorian gem is conveniently situated to the end of a row of period village houses, once home to a lady who baked and sold 1 penny pies from the windows, relatives of the family who built the three houses (4, 5 & 6) together are still in Flushing.
Located just a stone’s throw away from the public slipway and the haul-out moorings of Fish Cross, the cottage is ideal for reaching the waterside as well as for reaching the great range of local amenities on the doorstep which include a well-stocked village shop, two pubs, a bistro restaurant and a children’s pirate-themed play area.
