All Destinations UK Cornwall Flushing

The verdant west Cornwall village of Flushing is blissfully tucked away opposite the bustling fishing port and fashionable town of Falmouth. A true haven for yachty types, Flushing is the perfect holiday destination for those wanting a boating break with a difference.

Flushing in West Cornwall Flushing encompasses a handful of elegant Queen Anne style houses which line the river banks of the Penryn River, part of the renowned Carrick Roads. This estuary and unique section of the River Fal on the south coast of Cornwall forms a large waterway that was created at the end of the last ice age. The village itself is as warm and friendly as it is beautiful, perfect for family holidays. There’s a large park and playing field for children, with plenty of quaint riverside pubs for grown-ups. There’s also a host of events for all the family to enjoy, including the annual summer regatta week which is a fun-filled week of bath tub racing, rowing, wild swimming, crab catching and even sand-castle building for those who want to keep their toes dry.

Luxury Boating Breaks on The River Fal The Fal Estuary is the third largest natural harbour in the world and boating heaven for those looking for a unique sailing break in Cornwall. Also known as the Carrick Roads, the area offers an array of beautiful creeks and inlets including thriving wildlife spots to enjoy from the vantage point of the water. With many charming old Cornish pubs dotted along the riverbanks, sailors will love to moor up for a big lunch and ice cold ginger beer before taking back to the water. For those who don’t have their own boat, there’s a charming passenger ferry running between Flushing and Falmouth across the river which also connects with the ferries to St Mawes, Truro, Mylor and Trelissick. In summertime, the Fal river boats provide trips to the magical gardens of Trebah and Glendurgan which are well worth a visit (don’t forget the picnic)!
