The Blue HouseA 5 Star village house located just a few steps from the waterfront and furnished to an excellent standard with a contemporary seaside feel. It benefits from a courtyard garden, reserved parking and Superfast Broadband
The Blue House is one of four properties that used to make up an old chapel. Positioned along a pretty street that gently curves to the water’s edge, this stunning, three storey cottage is in a prime location. The sky blue exterior of makes for a quirky but inviting welcome and alongside the white picket fence, traditional white, wooden door and square framed windows, The Blue House is charming and pretty.
Stepping into the cottage guests are greeted with a long entrance hall and a traditional cottage layout. The main living and dining area have been opened up to create one large, bright room that takes full advantage of the large front window. The wooden floorboards are an original feature and add bags of character and warmth. Cleverly teamed with crisp white walls and modern furnishings, it’s easy to see this renovation has been cleverly thought through. The large corner sofa and arm chairs provide a cosy place to sit back and relax, positioned around the charming wood burning stove, this area of the room is extremely cosy. There is also a flat screen TV should guests wish to cuddle up and enjoy a good movie together.
The Blue House also comes complete with Superfast Broadband so guests can keep in touch with loved ones and share memorable moments.
The dining area is another lovely area in, with exposed white brick wall that offers character to match the original timber flooring. The crisp white walls enable this whole space to reflect the light from the dual aspect windows, and the dining table complete with six chairs, is an ideal spot to spend some quality time together.
There are a number of free standing lamps within this space, enabling guests to change the mood of the room and bring another element of warmth to this space, and several nautical themed touches that remind guests of the beautiful location of this cottage.
To the rear of the property is a more modern extension, home to the stylish kitchen and breakfast table. With a large skylight and several windows, this space is again bright and refreshing. The atmosphere of this room is cool and inviting. The high quality Cornish slate floor and soft blue county style kitchen are a gentle nod to the character and age of the cottage but with a modern twist. The Belfast sink with views onto the courtyard garden, makes doing the dishes less of a chore! This whole space has been cleverly thought out – it’s an ideal spot for guests to enjoy a quiet morning coffee ahead of a day exploring, and the built in appliances including dishwasher and washer-dryer mean guests can enjoy a home from home experience.
Guests can also make the most of the wonderful Cornish summer evenings and spend time outdoors in the enclosed courtyard garden. With white walls encasing this space, it’s an absolute sun trap and the ideal spot to enjoy a meal alfresco on the large table and chairs. With lush greenery positioned within the walls, guests can easily relax and enjoy some time in the outdoors.
The second floor of the cottage is home to the master bedroom, second bedroom and family bathroom.
The master bedroom is a good size, with a king-size bed and decorated to an equally high standard as the rest of the property. This room is a tranquil space, the white walls are refreshing and the white wooden furniture provides plenty of storage without being imposing. There are twin bedside tables, a large chest of drawers and free standing wardrobe, meaning guests can hide away their luggage and truly escape. The crisp white bed linen promises a relaxing night’s sleep, and with fitted blinds at the windows, guests can wake up gradually to the Cornish sunshine.
The second bedroom features twin single beds and is a continuation of the decor of the master. In both of these rooms there are nautical themed touches with soft furnishings and ornaments, and these are both charming and quaint. A large freestanding wardrobe provides ample storage.
The family bathroom is accessed easily by both of the bedrooms, and home to more of the beautiful Cornish slate. With white walls and a clean white suite, this room is inviting for guests wishing to run a hot bath and escape for some peace and quiet.
On the third floor of the property and nestled into the eves of the cottage is the third bedroom with twin single beds, and this is a cosy and modern space. Exposed white beams add character and the continuous furniture of all three bedrooms enable the cottage to maintain a wonderful flow. Breath-taking rooftop views can be witnessed from the window and offer a wonderful backdrop to awaken to in the morning. This bedroom also has access to a separate shower room, mimicking the decor of the family bathroom downstairs.
All parking in Flushing is on-street and free of charge, and guests will usually be able to find a space outside the house or close by without too much difficulty. In addition The Blue House has a reserved parking space approximately 350 yards from the property should it be required.
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.
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.
The Blue House is a gorgeously renovated property, offering a large family or gathering of friends an amazing experience in a quaint Cornish fishing village with understated luxury.

The house was exactly as we expected and little touches like the scones left on arrival were so nice. I honestly can’t think of anything you can improve as we loved the house and everything there!
The Blue House exceeded our expectations in every way. The location was superb – Flushing is a really unspoiled Cornish village yet just a hop across the bay on the ferry from the more commercialised town of Falmouth. The ferry incidentally is great fun!
The house was spotlessly clean and extremely well presented – the 5 Star rating from Visit Cornwall was well deserved and the owners are obviously keen to maintain that standard throughout, as when we visited just before Christmas it had been re-decorated throughout and it was absolutely pristine.
High specification kitchen, two lovely bathrooms and comfortable beds made for a perfect stay, and the efficient central heating complemented by the wood burner kept us toasty warm.
Well equipped for self-catering, we loved it here – the best holiday house we have rented by far, and there have been quite a few!

Looked and felt like a home from home not just a holiday home. Wifi and sky plus and a parking space meant everyone was happy!
