The space

The Cottage sleeps five (plus cot). Kitchen and living room are downstairs, on the ground floor is the lounge (T.V.) and single bedroom (plus z-bed) and Washbasin. Upstairs are the two double bedrooms and bathroom with shower, basin, and toilet. All beds have duvets.

Please bring your own bed-linen, towels and tea-towels. This keeps the costs charged by the local cleaning company down which we then pass on to our guests. Our nightly price is cheaper than most other similar listings in the area because we kindly ask guests to provide their own bed linen. If however you would like us to provide linen and towels please do let me know as I would be happy to arrange this for you. There is a £25 supplement for this.

All rooms have electric/storage heaters. In the kitchen is a fridge-freezer, iron, ironing board, and microwave; washing machine in sun trap room.

Guest access

Please email for access arrangements.
The front door key is located in a safety deposit box by the front door. ~the code is changed frequently and will be emailed to you along with check in information.
Feel free to use the full house. No out of bounds areas, just make yourself at home.

Interaction with guests

We are at the end of the telephone if needed. We do use the house ourselves from time to time, so there maybe a chance to meet us at either the beginning or the end of your stay if we have booked it out for our own holidays.
Do please give us a call if there is anything you need though.

Other things to note

With the local shop around the corner, and the bus and ferry, you may have little use for the car!

The house was tidy and clean, and has loads of character. It had 'extras' that we hadn't really expected, like wi-fi and a few DVDs. There is a bit of a damp problem.

Response from Ant:
Hi Nigel, glad you found some DVD's to watch, and made use of the wifi. As for the damp comment; Most of the houses in flushing have an element of damp as they are below sea level. The Fishermans Cottage has been professionally tanked and recently had major investment into a dehumidifying system which will remove the last small area of damp over time. Apologies if this effected your stay in some way and hope to see you again in the future.

A small cosy cottage which has a lot of potential and is in a beautiful location in Cornwall. It has a good kitchen, which is well equipped to cook in and the bathroom was clean. It just needs a little bit more care as it was a bit damp smelling and not as clean as I would expect. Ant was a communicative host though and very helpful.

Response from Ant:
Hi Amelia, My sincere apologies you didn't find the cottage as clean as you would have expected. The house is cleaned by a local professional cleaning company in-between every guest staying so I shall pass on your feedback and find out what happened there as we have never had any bad comments about cleanliness before. As for the damp, it is a 19th Century fisherman's cottage which has been professionally tanked but unfortunately all the property that lie below the sea level are subject to these damp problems. All effort is made to keep it under control by regular re decorating and damp proofing. Apologies again that the cottage didn't meet your level of expectation.

Flushing is a wonderful place to visit. The Old Fisherman's Cottage provided a wonderful base to explore the village. Getting to and from Falmouth was easy and although we were across the harbour, we didn't feel cut off. Ant was a great host and communicated quickly and efficiently if we had any queries. I would recommend this cottage to couples and families who enjoy coastal walks and great pubs!

We loved the house with the multiple levels. The night stores had been turned on which was most welcome for our late arrival after 40+ hours of travel from NZ. Instructions about use of the facilities were clear and thorough. Kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans and bowls, etc. and we made great use of much of it cooking Christmas dinner and Christmas biscuits! We also had breakfast there and several other dinners which was just what we wanted. Fireplace downstairs made for a very cosy place to be. Washing machine was appreciated. The area is lovely and we went for many walks and runs from the front door to explore. Neighbourhood seemed good and no worries about walking around or back from where we parked the car after dark. And the Christmas decorations around the area were special.

I do love to travel but unfortunately don't have a lot of time for it with my work. My favourite trip was to Costa Rica a few years ago. Next on my list is to explore Europe.
