Fabulous Flushing Historic village with period homes on the banks of Falmouth Harbour
The village of Flushing is much sought-after, partly due no doubt to its proximity to some of the best sailing waters in the country. The surrounding countryside is extremely picturesque and designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
It was settled in the 17th century by a Dutch community; subsequently several ships' captains made their home there including Captain Dowman, onetime owner of the clipper Cutty Sark who lived nearby at Trevissome House. Admiral Lord Nelson is also purported to have owned a house in the village.
Falmouth (three miles by road, or across the harbor by year-round passenger ferry from Flushing Quay) offers a good range of shopping and educational facilities while the Cathedral City of Truro is 10 miles distant and is the commercial centre for the county with a first class range of shops, public and private sector schools, regional hospital, theatre etc.
