New Quay Lodge - a holiday home that sleeps 8 guests in 3 bedrooms
New Quay Lodge forming part of this prominent building is located right on the waterfront in Flushing, across the river from Falmouth. Overlooking the river from the first floor windows, there is always something to watch in the active harbour. Originally constructed in 1703 this historic building was originally the home of a Merchant Ship Captain and is now Grade II listed and split into 2 separate properties. Flushing is a quiet village with some great village walks around the headland to Mylor. It is also linked to Falmouth via a short passenger ferry ride from the quay which is a short walk from the house.
The house is laid out in reverse style with a double and twin bedroom on the ground floor. The twin room also has two pull out beds making this a ideal room for children. The magnificent hallway and grand staircase lead to the living room and kitchen diner at first floor level which have superb views over the river and across to Falmouth. There is a small double bedroom on the first floor, but please do bear in mind that this is a small room with restricted access to one side of the bed. The back garden at New Quay Lodge is simply delightful. A lower patio garden with a higher level deck area which also has views over towards Falmouth. The garden gets good sunshine for much of the day and is a private and tranquil place to relax.
Ground Floor: Master double bedroom with built in wardrobes, grand twin / quadruple room, utility area, family bathroom with separate shower.
First Floor: Double bedroom, shower room, living room, kitchen / dining room.

Very comfortable house
A very comfortable house in a good location. The view from the living room and the back terrace are wonderful. A few minor problems with the lock on the front door and the key lock....instructions for handling these would be useful.
Lovely holiday home
Newquay Lodge is a lovely home and extremely well equipped. The rooms are large and comfortably furnished. The views of the river and Falmouth are fantastic and Flushing is a pleasant and quiet village with a village shop, two pubs serving food and a riverside restaurant. The garden is pretty and there is a parking area. Coming in from the parking area there are some steep steps without any handrail. The steps are large and square, but could be a problem for people with disabilities. There is no problem in entering by the front door from the street. We would be happy to stay here again. There was a welcome pack of biscuits, carton of milk and packet of tea which was muych appreciated

A dream place with it´s views and tranquility,
Many Thanks !!
The location is great. The house was clean and tidy. The double bed we tried was very soft so we used the twin bedroom instead.
The car parking is quite hard to get in and out of, but is vital due to the lack of on road parking. The garden was lovely, although the weather meant we did not use it as much as we would have liked.
Originally named Nankersey, meaning valley of the reed swamp, the village was given its name by Dutch engineers from Flushing in the Netherlands who built the three main quays in the village. The grand houses on St Peter's Hill, the road that leads into the village, were owned by captains of the packet ships (mail boats) that docked in nearby Falmouth. The Spanish Armada intended to land here in their attack on England but they were not able to capture it.
Due to its position, Flushing is said to be one of the warmest villages in the United Kingdom. The beaches at Kiln are extremely popular in the summer months, offering superb views of Falmouth Docks, the Carrick Roads and St. Anthony's Head. There are two pubs, the Royal Standard on St Peter's Hill and the Seven Stars on Trefusis Road opposite Fish Cross. There is also a fish restaurant, formerly the Sticky Prawn, now the Quay Cafe located on Ferry Quay. Flushing Regatta Week is held annually during late July or early August, and features water-based activities such as bathtub racing, rowing, swimming and sailing races, sand-castle building contests, a mini-marathon through Mylor and Flushing, an open-air church service, a pub quiz, crab catching and a carnival on Saturday night, and has achieved marked popularity locally.
