Quay House got its name when a new stone quay was built at the port of Flushing in the 18th Century. The house stands back from the quay, facing south, and has charming large rooms, a small garden to the rear and a garden and summer house on the quayside. 

The views from the house are stunning. They look south across Falmouth Bay to Falmouth, the harbour, and the hills beyond. Even at low water there is water against the pier garden and the house itself is part 18th Century and part an extension added around 1820. The layout is therefore a little unusual.

The rooms are beautiful, with the three bedrooms on the second floor overlooking the water. The large master bedroom has views both across and up river, as does the living room on the first floor. The house is heated by efficient oil-fired central heating. The main bathroom is on the first floor and there are two shower rooms.

Houses available for holidays, in positions as good as this, do not often come up. For those who love a house with its own private access to the water or beach, depending on the tide, this is a comfortable, delightful and charming place in which to spend a holiday. 

NB The small road that separates the house from the water is a no-through-road.

Sorry, no dogs.
