Flushing is a picturesque waterside village, with fishing quays and ferry service across to the harbourside town of Falmouth. It has a thriving local community, which is well served by a range of facilities including a local convenience store, village primary school, two public houses, parish church and quayside restaurant. Sailing enthusiasts are well catered for with an active and popular local sailing club, just a few minutes’ walk from the property. There are neighbouring sailing clubs and associated facilities at Mylor Yacht Harbour, Restronguet, and The Royal Cornwall Yacht Club across the water at Greenbank in Falmouth.
The Fal Estuary is renowned as a sailing centre and there are many miles of beautiful water within the estuary including the creeks of the Truro, Fal and Percuil Rivers which provide some of the finest day sailing in the UK.
Falmouth lies across the colourful harbour and a regular foot ferry runs to and from the Prince of Wales Pier. By road Falmouth is about a ten minute drive away.
The Cathedral City of Truro is approximately 12 miles distant, providing a whole host of business, leisure and shopping facilities, together with the mainline railway station at Truro, which provides access to the Penzance to London Paddington service.
