Poppy Cottage is a beautifully presented fisherman’s cottage in the heart of Flushing village with a lovely courtyard garden. Fully renovated to a high standard, this traditional 18th Century house retains plenty of original features and has the added benefit of a reserved parking space on the quay.
One of a row of similar pastel coloured cottages, the house retains plenty of original features such as the pretty bay window, whitewashed beams and an open fireplace, and the owners have taken enormous care to upgrade Poppy Cottage to a very high standard. It offers comfortable accommodation for up to four people in two bedrooms, one double and one twin. Luxuries include new bedroom furniture and bedding, fluffy towels, complimentary shower gel, shampoo & conditioner, hairdryer and flat screen TV’s and DVD player, all of which make this the perfect base base for a relaxing break.
The inviting sitting room has plenty of comfortable seating. There are also lots of books to read, many of which tell the story of this historical village, while the wood burning stove provides a cosy glow and warmth on chilly evenings. The complimentary WiFi allows you to keep in touch with life outside the village.
The recently refitted kitchen is beautifully equipped with dishwasher, fridge freezer, oven, hob with extractor and microwave oven. The central island ensures there is plenty of room to prepare family meals. Leading from the kitchen is the bright and airy new conservatory with a large dining table and chairs, wall mounted fire, and sofa. This room also serves as a second sitting room with a further flat screen TV and games system to entertain the children.
French doors open out from the conservatory into the sunny and secure garden, with a variety of plants and outdoor seating. There is also a BBQ to use on summer evenings. The garden shed serves as a laundry room with washer dryer and airing space.
The first floor master bedroom with double bed and wardrobe looks out over the garden, while the second bedroom with twin single beds has a view of the pretty street.
The family bathroom has a distinctly nautical feel in keeping with its surroundings, with white tongue and groove walls, a bath with shower, W.C. and basin.
Poppy Cottage welcomes one well behaved dog, and benefits from a reserved parking space on the quayside.
Even during the height of summer, Flushing provides a sense of peace and tranquility. With 2 friendly pubs, an excellent seafood restaurant, and a well-stocked shop, many of our guests choose to leave the car behind and enjoy a more traditional holiday – entertaining the kids crabbing, enjoying relaxed lunches by the water, and taking in the sea air on beautiful walks around the Fal River. A passenger ferry operates regularly over to Falmouth with its Maritime Museum, restaurants and independent shops and galleries. This also links up with other boats sailing to nearby St Mawes and the Helford River.
