Property Location


Originally named Nankersey, meaning valley of the reed swamp, the village was given its name by Dutch engineers from Flushing in the Netherlands who built the three main quays in the village. The grand houses on St Peter's Hill, the road that leads into the village, were owned by captains of the packet ships (mail boats) that docked in nearby Falmouth. The Spanish Armada intended to land here in their attack on England but they were not able to capture it.

Due to its position, Flushing is said to be one of the warmest villages in the United Kingdom. The beaches at Kiln are extremely popular in the summer months, offering superb views of Falmouth Docks, the Carrick Roads and St Anthony's Head. There are two pubs, the Royal Standard on St Peter's Hill and the Seven Stars on
Trefusis Road opposite Fish Cross. There is also a fish restaurant, formerly the Sticky Prawn, now the Quay Cafe located on Ferry Quay. Flushing Regatta Week is held annually during late July or early August, and features water-based activities such as bathtub racing, rowing, swimming and sailing races, sandcastle building contests, a mini-marathon through Mylor and Flushing, an open-air church service, a pub quiz, crab catching and a carnival on Saturday night, and has achieved marked popularity locally.

Spacious with great harbour views

Our family of 5 had a great week at New Quay House. We swam and Kayaked straight from the steps in the garden and really enjoyed the views from many of the rooms (almost felt as if we were in the captain's quarters of a grand ship at times).

New Quay House - an historic property.

New Quay House is an historic property with excellent views from the front and side. The location - at the end of the quay - is one of the best in the village. The house is nicely furnished, well equipped, and well kept. The rooms are spacious, especially the master bedroom, which is huge and has panoramic views.

Panoramic views

We stayed at NQH for a fortnight at the end of August. It's an interesting house which is obviously half of a much larger residence, split into two - you get the top floor of the original house (late 18th century) plus the 3-floor 1820 extension. The extension houses the dining room, lounge and master bedroom, all of which have incredible views across the harbour on two sides. The top floor has quirky sloped floors which are quite disconcerting until you are used to them! The house has a good selection of books if you forget your reading material, and even a working piano in the lounge. If you are taller than 5'2 then there's scope for a lot of scalp damage in the kitchen area, but the owner has thoughtfully attached blue ribbons to all the short doorways in an attempt to prevent excessive concussion. I'm a runner, and being able to go straight out of the front door onto the path around the headland to Mylor was really great. It's about 2.25 miles to Mylor church, where there is a public loo - this is always open and only once was without loo-roll! My dad enjoyed being able to jog round to the beach half a mile away for a morning dip. We made good use of the outside space across the road from the house for BBQs, and the kids went crabbing off the garden steps. The only downside to this property is the rather hair-raising drive through the village street - you've no choice in the matter as the road to Flushing is a dead end. It's very narrow with potential for complete mayhem if several cars try to use it at once. To be honest if Falmouth is your destination just walk down to the the Flushing ferry, which leaves from the quay just round the corner and runs all day. Flushing has some fantastic eating options on offer - the Codfather van on a Friday is excellent if slightly pricey; the Seven Stars pub was excellent with very well kept beer; the Waterside restaurant also lovely for a more refined meal out or even a cream tea. The village shop is a friendly affair and will order in anything they don't have at the time, eg raspberries or chicken portions, but there's also a Lidl and Sainsburys in Falmouth (Sainsburys has free wifi so get the kids to take their devices and sit in the cafe).

Quality home with lots of heritage and fantastic setting.

A great location for a family holiday in a beautiful home. Everything has been catered for. The views are forever changing. Great garden for launching a canoe and for alfresco dining. Highly recommended.

Family get together

Very spacious house, fairly well equipped but WiFi and a dish washer would be nice. A lot of stairs so a bit difficult for elderly relatives. Amazing views from rooms and garden. TV was very small and needs improving. Lovely location with local shop, pubs and restaurant walking distance from house. Summer house and garden were a great place to sit with a drink and watch the activity on the water.

Fabulous location but in need of some TLC

New Quay House is fabulous. AGBP1m views and a great position. The accommodation could do with some updating especially the kitchen. Bedrooms and other aspects of the house were fine. Overall very homely.

Too 'shabby chic'.

We realised the house would be 'shabby chic' but feel that after paying AGBP1500 certain standards should be met. The rooms downstairs had a grimey feel and the brown sofa felt dirty. The kitchen felt sticky and we didn't feel comfortable cooking there. However the bedrooms and bedding were very clean and the bathrooms lovely. The views and garden were amazing. We feel it is such a shame that the price did not reflect value for money as the house was in an amazing position and the problems could be easily dealt with.
