The Green House
"A cross between a boutique hotel and home” is how one of our guests described The Green House - a traditional terraced house in a pretty street, with an enclosed and sheltered suntrap garden.
Offering the charm of coastal living with the luxury comforts of home, this Cornish village house provides the perfect holiday setting for groups of 6. With beautifully presented accommodation across two floors, ‘The Green House’ is a welcome retreat in all seasons for family, friends and well-behaved dogs.
Built in the 1800’s, much of the period charm still remains, with elegant sash windows and whitewashed walls adding a timeless allure to the contemporary interior. The use of Cornish slate flooring and solid wood furniture also provides a homely ambience alongside an inviting nauticalstyle interior, for a befitting coastal setting.
The carpeted living room provides a welcoming venue in which to relax and socialise, with a deep leather sofa and a pair of tub chairs offering the perfect excuse to cuddle up and enjoy a film. The flat screen TV and DVD player is ideally complemented by Freeview channels and the room is further equipped with a PlayStation console and WIFI access. In the cooler seasons the room takes on a cosy cottage feel, with the romantic flames of the modern wood burning stove providing ambient warmth for guests.
From the carpeted comfort of the living room chic Cornish slate flooring leads from the hallway to a stylish separate dining room and fully-equipped kitchen. The informal flow of the rooms offers a lovely relaxed ambience for family stays, as well as a practical environment for entertaining. The spot-lit dining area offers adequate room for 6, with a solid oak table and stylish high backed leather chairs provided. The contemporary furniture beautifully complements the whitewashed walls and nautical touches of the room, for an inviting setting in which to dine.
Guests can easily enjoy preparing delicious home-cooked meals in the adjoining contemporary kitchen. Fully-equipped for a self-catering stay with a halogen hob, fan oven, toaster, kettle and dishwasher. The solid wood work tops, slate flooring and butler sink also provide country-style serenity to the room, for all the comfort of home.
A sliding door leads from the kitchen to a utility area, equipped with a washer dryer and cloakroom WC, for guest’s convenience.
The chic coastal theme of the holiday home continues in the stylish accommodation of the first floor. Perfectly suited for groups of 6, the 3 bedrooms provide a tranquil nautical haven in which to relax and replenish the senses.
A spacious master bedroom to the front of the property easily enables couples to unwind, with a sumptuous king size bed providing the perfect excuse for a guilt-free slumber. The coastal theme of the room is further complemented by solid pine furniture for a timeless quality, whilst an iPod docking station is on hand to offer the perfect ambience.
Equally inviting, the second bedroom offers the perfect retreat for a second couple staying in the property, with a beautiful double bed overlooking the private rear garden. Guests will feel fully at home here, with pretty coastal touches to offer a restful and playful ambience to your seaside stay.
Children are perfectly suited to the third bedroom, which is furnished with a set of bunk beds. Lovingly finished in a nautical style, the Laura Ashley interior offers the perfect coastal ambience in which your little sailors can unwind. A baby cot and high chair are also conveniently on hand for guests travelling with little ones.
The contemporary fitted bathroom offers the ideal sanctuary in which to unwind the senses, guests can easily savour a moment in the power shower or in the deep bath tub. The under floor heating, luxury toiletries and bath towels also provide luxury hotel comfort.
Outside guests can easily unwind and entertain in the beautiful rear garden. Providing a sheltered sunny spot, the enclosed natural haven offers a tropical oasis for guests to enjoy in all seasons. The decked garden reached by stone stairs features a lovely alfresco dining area ideal for summertime meals and a gorgeous sun deck ideal for relaxation. The lush exotic planting, palm trees and tranquil setting truly offers an added touch of indulgence to ‘The Green House’.
All parking in Flushing is on-street and free of charge, and guests will usually be able to find a space just outside the house or close by without difficulty. In addition The Green House has a reserved parking space approximately 225 yards from the property should it be required.
From the terraced charm of the period holiday home, guests are within enviable walking distance of the delights of Flushing village. Beautifully situated along the coast, the village enjoys a sedate and timeless quality in the heart of West Cornwall. With convenient amenities to hand including a well stocked village shop, two local pubs and a quayside bistro restaurant, Flushing perfectly complements your self-catering stay.

The thought and care that has been put into the decor and organization of the Green House is exceptional…We have been travelling and staying in Vacation Rentals for almost a year now and the Green House and Flushing Cottage Rentals have been one of our best stays… The cozy feel of the house and the design of the finishings make it feel like a boutique hotel with the ability to create your own 5 star meal. The village was a treat to walk and explore and the people we met were all warm and friendly, we enjoyed our visit and have recommended it to friends who will be visiting the U.K.

We thoroughly enjoyed our week in The Green House. The accommodation was lovely, the quality of furnishing and attention to detail were excellent and we enjoyed the welcome – fresh scones for us, and treats for our dog Scrabble. Flushing is a beautiful setting, a quiet waterside village but with two great pubs and a fabulous fish restaurant in The Waterside. I would recommend both this area of Cornwall, and The Green House. Flushing is also well placed, a short drive from Falmouth and Truro, and less than an hour to St Ives. Porth Kidney beach near St Ives was a find – white sands and dog friendly.

We cannot recommend this cottage enough. The location is great with the regular, half hourly Flushing ferry service over to Falmouth (except) Sundays. Parking was not a problem. The cottage itself was tastefully furnished together with some outstanding features such as the low lighting on the landing and the heated bathroom floor. Everything necessary for a comfortable stay was provided, from logs to dishwasher tablets, from Sky+ to a fab Cornish Cream Tea!

A holiday here was a real treat. We have done the Padstow area mostly in the last 25 years but think that this week will change that. Loved St Mawes, all the ferries, Mylor and Flushing, and especially this beautiful cottage. Have done lots of self catering all over the UK but never known such a lovely place with so many thoughtful touches – they know their guests! We loved it and plan to re book as we didn’t have time to do everything.

This is the second year we have stayed in the Green House and we love it even more. Excellent accommodation and the owner Stuart has thought of everything. Top class luxury. Our dog teddy was also welcome. Friendly village and excellent pubs.
Tracey S, Falmouth
We love this house! Everything was perfect. The house and decor are fresh, clean and pleasant. It appeared that the kitchen, baths and bedrooms were fitted out with new furnishings picked out just for the Green House. There is no sense that anything in the house was from the thrift shop or a cast off or broken set from the owner’s home. Some of our past rental houses were so full of the owner’s junk that we felt unwelcome, but that was not the case at the Green House.
We had excellent communication with the owner by email, phone and text.
Flushing is very pleasant with a village ambiance but near to a larger city for shopping and transportation. We enjoyed the Flushing pubs and used the little store for a few things. We used the ferry to Falmouth for shopping and to connect to other transportation.
We flew from the US to Gatwick to Newquay and rented a car which we used to get to and from the airport and for a trip to Porthcurno. Otherwise, the car sat. Next time we will skip the rental car and save the money. It is very easy to get around using the bus, train and ferry.
