Quarry Cottage is a cosy holiday home set in the pretty waterside village of Flushing, which overlooks the busy port and harbour of Falmouth. It is a comfortable three-storey terraced property with wooden floors, and has a sunlit top floor which makes a relaxing sunny spot in which to read and unwind, or you can relax with a drink in the enclosed, sunny rear patio. The cottage lies a minute’s walk from the waterfront, harbour, pub, shop and just ½ mile from the beach. There are delightful walks along the coastal path round to the bustling harbour at Mylor which has an ancient church, popular restaurant/bistro and café where you can dine al fresco and watch the marine activity. Take the small ferry from Flushing to Falmouth with its choice of sandy beaches, shops, restaurants, galleries and the famous Maritime Museum located in Events Square providing activities throughout the year. Falmouth hosts numerous high profile events all year round including international yachting and sailing activities. The area is ideal for exploring on land or the extensive waterways. Take one of many small ferry trips (including the Flushing to Falmouth ferry) or cruise down the picturesque Helford River to visit creeks made famous by Daphne du Maurier Frenchman’s Creek. Head up river to the cathedral city of Truro, with its theatre, cinema and range of shops and restaurants or take the short hop across to St Mawes to visit St Mawes Castle, the twin to Pendennis Castle, both built by Henry VIII to protect the waters around the Carrick Roads.
