FEOCK (Truro)

More Information on Advent Beaches Places to Stay - Accommodation Tourist Information Official Web Site

Situated mid-way between the County town of Truro and the old packet Port of Falmouth, Feock is one of the prettiest villages in Cornwall. The village nestles on the slopes of the Carrick Roads, a mixture of thatched, cream washed cottages and a few well built modern houses. The boating beach at Loe provides some swimming, fishing, sailing and similar activities 800 yards from the village centre. The National Trust gardens at Trelissick and a golf centre are within two miles and the King Harry Ferry is a picturesque short cut to the beaches of the Roseland. The village has a post office/ stores but Truro and Falmouth, an easy drive away, offer a wider selection of shops and amenities.

 

FLUSHING (Falmouth)

Map Beaches Places to Stay - Accommodation Tourist Information Official Web Site

Owes name to seamen from Vlissingen, Holland, who settled here in 17thC, and retains Dutch appearance. Flushing looks southward across Penryn river and a magnificent harbour towards the town of Falmouth. A century or so ago it shared all the bustle of its sister town as the place where the Packet Captains lived. Today, Flushing has subsided into a peaceful backwater with its houses and slate hung cottages lining the magnificent sea walls and climbs away up the hillside by way of quaintly crooked streets. The stretches of golden sands of Falmouth are a mile away, by frequent passenger ferry, or four miles by road.
