Myrtle CottageMyrtle Cottage is everything that you would expect from a traditional fisherman's cottage! The pretty 2 bedroom dog friendly property in the heart of Flushing village has a cosy sitting room complete with wood-burner and WiFi.
Located within the quaint Cornish fishing village of Flushing, this pretty two bedroom cottage has Cornish life at it’s heart. With a stunning wood burner, cosy atmosphere and dog friendly, it’s ideal for escaping the everyday life and experiencing something a little special.
Myrtle Cottage is positioned in the centre of Flushing, a quiet and pretty local fishing village with stunning views over the water to Falmouth. With local pubs, stores and dog friendly walks, this quintessential location promises a relaxing break away. It is a classic two up, two down village property that oozes character and history, and the cosy feel of the cottage is a welcoming place for guests to enjoy a much needed break.
Stepping inside the front door, guests are greeted by a large, open plan living, dining and kitchen room. Exposed wooden beams and dark slate flooring are the perfect combination with crisp white walls and the inset wood burner. Although the space is bright and open, the decor has been carefully planned to maintain the original cosy, cottage feel and the three separate areas have distinguished character. There are two comfortable sofas in the main living area that face the wood burner, an ideal spot for guests to curl up on the couch and enjoy the cosy setting. There is also a large, flat screen LCD TV should guests wish to put their feet up in front of a good movie. The large window that looks out onto the pretty, pastel street means the front of this space is filled with natural light.
The dining area is located towards the rear of the ground floor and is home to a large table and six chairs. There’s plenty of room for guests to gather round and share a hearty breakfast whilst discussing the plans for the day ahead, and with the kitchen close by it’s a social and inviting space.
The kitchen is well equipped with everything guests will need to enjoy their stay. With fresh produce available from the village store and a never ending supply of fresh fish, guests could enjoy getting to work on creating a delicious meal for everyone to share. There is an electric oven, hob, microwave and dishwasher and even a washing machine so guests have all the home comforts. The modern kitchen is an excellent size and the large window and skylight means this space catches even the sunset light.
At the rear of the property is a downstairs bathroom where guests can take a moment to freshen up after a day exploring the sandy beaches or coastline paths. With a modern white suite and floor to ceiling tiles, this bright room is calming and refreshing. There is also a WC, hand basin and heated towel rail so stepping out of the bath is a little more inviting.
Upstairs, the two bedrooms are an excellent size and are warm and restful spaces. The master bedroom features a comfortable double bed so guests can enjoy a good night sleep. There is a large built in wardrobe and chest of drawers for storing away any possessions and a comfortable wicker chair placed in front of the window makes for a light reading spot. This room also comes complete with an en suite shower room, enabling guests to enjoy a hot shower in the morning before heading downstairs to enjoy breakfast. There is also a WC and hand basin.
The second bedroom features twin single beds, so is ideal for younger guests, and two large windows frame the view of the pretty pastel street beyond. A soft neutral carpet makes stepping out of bed a little easier in the morning and a large free standing wardrobe means guests staying here have somewhere to keep all their luggage.
Flushing is the picture perfect Cornish postcard setting. With quaint streets lined with characterful fishing cottages, two friendly pubs and an excellent seafood restaurant, guests who are wanting a peaceful and relaxing break can certainly find it here. Toward the other side of Flushing is a well-equipped children’s play park, an excellent space to bring the little ones to burn off some steam. There is also a well-stocked local shop should guests need anything and wonderful views across the bay to Falmouth town. Just a stroll around the streets or down to the waterfront is a tranquil way to spend some quality time with loved ones and there are plenty of coastal trails to enjoy with any four legged friends!
A regular passenger ferry can take you across the water and over to the harbour town of Falmouth, where an array of boutique shops and restaurants await. Guests can explore several art galleries or take time to expand their knowledge of its history at the famous Maritime Museum. It’s easy to explore more of Cornwall from Falmouth, with its excellent transport links to Cornwall’s capital city, Truro via bus, train, ferry or car.
Myrtle Cottage is truly a picture perfect property for a small family or couples to escape to and experience the Cornish life. Within walking distance of the pubs, restaurants and beaches, there’s something to keep everyone occupied.

Extremely satisfied – quiet location with a good dog walk from property
The Andrews, Southampton
We loved both the property and Flushing, the cottage was just as we wished, very much like home from home. No faults at all. I think that the owners are to be mentioned as to the quality of the property. Cleaned and maintained to an exceptionally high standard. Would definitely use your services again. Many thanks to all involved. After a pretty hard year, a beautiful place to unwind.
