The Old ShopA one bedroom ground floor apartment with courtyard garden in the heart of Flushing village just a few steps from the quayside - the perfect romantic retreat for couples!
The Old Shop nestles amongst the delightful pastel coloured properties in the village of Flushing. Located just opposite the bustling town of Falmouth, the village is famed for its mild climate and offers a comfortable base from which to explore Cornwall.
This bolthole is an unexpected gem, much more spacious than the exterior suggests and a perfect retreat for a couple. The open plan living-room has an electric flame effect fire for cosiness (plus electric heaters), a comfortable sofa to stretch out on, an armchair and a dining table.
The separate kitchen is well equipped with an electric oven and hob, washing machine / dryer and a dishwasher. Though with 3 excellent eateries on your doorstep you will be forgiven for not spending too much time in here!
Outside is a small courtyard with seating area perfect for enjoying a cup of coffee or a glass of wine.
The bright and sunny bedroom has patio doors that lead out onto the courtyard, a wardrobe, dressing table and huge super king size bed while the separate shower room has a WC, basin and walk in shower.
The Old Shop is located on the ground floor and on one level – guests are advised that this does mean that on occasion some background noise from the upstairs apartment and road may be audible.
This is the perfect location for walkers (a well-behaved dog is welcome) with a series of local footpaths on your doorstep. Sailors will appreciate the many facilities in the area, while explorers will love the little Flushing Ferry that crosses the river to Falmouth and links up with a network of ferries that run to destinations such as St Mawes, The Helford River and Truro.

Fabulous restaurant, the Waterside. Village shop and two great pubs. The Old Shop a super place to stay. My partner and I had a wonderful stay. Thank you! ”
“Great, beautiful apartment, perfect location! Could not be improved! ”
“We had a great stay here. The house was lovely and clean – the fake fire was a real highlight for us. The water and a couple of pubs were all within walking distance. Would stay again!”
“Nettes Apartment in einem kleinen Fischerdorf. Sehr malerisch und perfekter Ausgangspunkt für Unternehmungen überall in Cornwall (Auto empfohlen.) Mit der Fähre erreicht man die nächst größere Stadt Falmouth in Minuten. Tipp: Unbedingt den Wanderweg nach Mylor und Mylor Bridge probieren!”
“Great location for a romantic stay. Lovely fishing village. The Old Shop is well equipped. There’s everything to make one’s stay comfortable. The only challenge can be the parking. However if you take that in your stride you can find something. Would definitely recommend !”
“It exceeded our expectations. The flat is lovely a perfect space with everything we needed. It is clean and well presented. It was great that we could bring our springer spaniel along too. The location is fantastic, easy access to Falmouth. Staggering distance from the pub and with a convenience shop a couple of doors down. We hope to return soon.”
“We had a fantastic few nights in this lovely cottage in the charming village of Flushing. Situated within easy access of the amenities in Falmouth, but away from the crowds, Flushing is much more peaceful and was the perfect location for us. The accommodation was very cozy, clean and comfortable. Would certainly recommend.”
“Flushing is perfect and the flat is in a great location. Very clean and nice to stay in.”
