A Trip To Flushing

For dog-friendly retreats made for making memories with the family, Falmouth Holiday Homes has you covered.

Nestled along the picturesque shores of the south coast of Cornwall, Flushing village embodies the quintessential charm of a traditional Cornish fishing community. With its colourful terraced houses, narrow winding streets, and panoramic views of the Fal Estuary, Flushing exudes an undeniable allure. The village’s maritime heritage is palpable, reflected in the rhythmic ebb and flow of the tides and the bustling activity of the harbour, where fishing boats bob gently alongside sailboats and yachts.

Visitors can wander along the waterfront promenade, breathe in the salty sea air, and watch as seabirds swoop and dive over the sparkling waters. With its welcoming pubs like the newly established Harbour House, a dog- friendly beach all year round, and a general taste of Cornish life, Flushing invites visitors to slow down and savour the simple pleasures of coastal living.

Falmouth Holiday Homes’ collection of dog-friendly Flushing Holiday Cottages make a stay in the village a true Cornish getaway, and one such property is Boatwatch. Sleeping four, and just a few steps from the quayside, this stunning and beautifully presented village house is a waterside haven. The open- plan living room enjoys amazing views of Falmouth across the river, and with its own reserved parking space on the quay opposite, life couldn’t be easier.

Another delightful dog-friendly stay is offered at Stable Cottage. Sleeping four, and with an enclosed courtyard, parking and only a short stroll from the village, this pretty cottage exudes peaceful tranquillity as you look out over the river from the cosy sitting room. The Corner House, also sleeping four and newly refurbished with an open-plan living area, two en-suite bedrooms and a courtyard garden, sits in the heart of Flushing, its original features complemented by its modern finish.

For a larger group, The Paddock can offer accommodation for up to eight. Spacious and beautifully refurbished, this contemporary home boasts extensive river views from the expansive terraces and living areas, not to mention off-road parking for several cars.

For families big and small, Falmouth Holiday Homes has you covered if you’re looking for an escape to the quaint fishing village of Flushing, especially if your pooch is considered one of the team.
