The main living space is bright and inviting, with a large sofa and two armchairs. The decor of this space is calming and subtly nautical, with white walls and refreshing tones of deep blues. The use of natural stone, wood and a hessian rug add texture and warmth to this space, ensuring guests enjoy spending time here. The large windows flood the room with light and provide a pretty backdrop for guests taking a moment to enjoy a quiet cup of tea in the armchairs.

Positioned behind the living area is the stunning kitchen where sleek, white cabinets and a concrete worktop invite guests to enjoy spending time cooking some delicious food. The breakfast bar, complete with four modern stools, is a lovely feature and a place for guests to spend some time together at breakfast, discussing any plans for the day ahead. With fresh produce right on the doorstep, this kitchen is ideal for experimenting and cooking with local fish caught the same day in the harbour. The large window fills this area with natural light and is home to a pretty view of the courtyard garden, where should guests wish to enjoy some more of Cornish summer sun, they could dine alfresco on the table and seats outside. The kitchen comes complete with an electric oven and hob and a dishwasher, so guests won’t be needing to spend too much time cleaning up! There is also a washing machine to keep on top of any laundry that needs washing after a fun day at the beach.
The dining area is accessed via two steps, leading down into this bright and welcoming space. The nautical theme flows pleasantly into this space where a charming feature wall of wood cladding had been added. Large slate tiles and the modern dining set means this wonderful space is fuss-free and in keeping with the rest of the cottage. Cosy evening meals can be shared here, private from the rest of the cottage and guests can watch as the sun sets through the double doors that lead out to the courtyard garden.
The courtyard garden is a wonderful feature of the character-filled cottage. Enclosed by white walls and surrounded by lush greenery, this space is abundant with charm and texture. A table and chairs provide guests with a beautifully idyllic spot to sit down and enjoy the long summer evenings, soaking up all of the Cornish sunshine.
The staircase leading to the upper floor of the cottage is found within the sitting room and leads guests up to two beautifully maintained bedrooms and bathrooms. The master bedroom is a superb size and guests will be sure to settle down amongst the crisp white bedsheets on the king-size bed. This room is light and bright and oozes charm and cosiness. Clean white walls encase this large space and the use of blues and natural woods add texture a modern finish. There are twin bedside tables and a large chest of drawers and wardrobe for storing away luggage, so guests can truly switch off and relax in this space.

When we arrived we were delighted with the property as it was spotless,well fitted out and in a super part of Flushing. We have stayed in Flushing before so knew our way around and thoroughly enjoyed our week visiting The Lost Gardens of Heligan and The Minack Theatre to name two trips and also watched the bunting being put across the streets of Flushing for the regatta which is happening later this month.We would certainly use your company for out next choice of Holiday home.
We had a lovely time at the corner house in Flushing, fab cottage, loved the open plan layout downstairs, very comfortable!
