The delightful village of Flushing is situated just opposite the historic maritime port of Falmouth renowned for its Maritime Museum, Pendennis Castle built by Henry VIII with its secondary schools enjoying an excellent reputation. Flushing itself originates with the Dutch community who are believed to have settled here in the 17th century with many historic houses in the village believed to have been constructed for the sea captains of its time.
Today Flushing is a sought-after holiday destination yet retaining a good local community spirit. Renowned for its excellent sailing waters and yacht club it is easy to see why so many people visit and indeed decide to make the village their permanent home.
