At A Glance
El Mersah is a stunning individual coastal property providing a truly magical Cornish escape, overlooking the village of Flushing, a beautiful riverside fishing village just across the water from Falmouth harbour. Days here can be spent lazily enjoying the peace and quiet and relaxing on the terrace watching the boats on the river.
The outdoor space of this property is delightful with 180-degree views of the river, guests can either enjoy dining alfresco or soaking up the sun on the paved terrace, complete with sun loungers. There’s no better place to escape to, unwind, and watch the sunset over the river.
The village enjoys a sunny south-westerly aspect and is reputed to have one of the mildest climates in Britain; it has a small shop, two good pubs, and a quayside fish restaurant. Just a short walk away is Kiln beach at the far end of the village, giving access to the coastal footpath around Trefusis Headland to Mylor Yacht Harbour, which offers boat hire, launching, mooring facilities, Castaways wine bar, lunch and dinner, along with Café Mylor perfect for breakfast & lunch.
There is access during the day to Falmouth by frequent foot ferry, where you go onto St Mawes or up the river to the National Trust gardens of Trelissick. Falmouth has a great selection of boutique shops and some excellent restaurants, with many art galleries and antique shops or visit the famous Maritime Museum and Pendennis Castle.
