Said to have the mildest climate in Britain, the village of Flushing (right photograph) owes its name to its Dutch founders and its narrow streets still retain a distinctly Dutch flavour, as well as several Queen Anne houses. One of a row this simply furnished cottage is just a minute's walk from the pub and shop and ½ mile to the beach. A ferry crosses the river to Falmouth with its sandy beach, shops, restaurants, new Maritime Museum, and cruises up river to the city of Truro (9 miles by car). Sailing school 2 miles. Famous gardens along Helford river nearby.
