The picturesque waterside village of Flushing occupies a beautiful position across the water from Falmouth, bordered to the north and east by open countryside. Dating back to the 17th century, Dutch builders first came to construct piers and sea walls before settling, the village subsequently became a place of style and refinement where the many captains of the Packet Ships lived.
Flushing retains style and taste with renovated 17th and 18th century houses combining with narrow winding streets characterised by smaller houses and cottages. The village also enjoys a sunny southerly aspect and is reputed to have one of the mildest climates in Britain. Local facilities include a convenience store, two public houses and a popular quayside restaurant.
Flushing also has its own primary school, church and chapel. A passenger ferry service provides easy access to Falmouth and water sports enthusiasts are well catered for with an active sailing club in the village as well as close proximity to Mylor Yacht Harbour.
