Step Inside

Follow your nose through the village of Flushing and arrive at the jackpot setting of Halyard House on the banks of the River Fal. Once inside, the house sits across 3 floors. Upon arrival a central hallway welcomes you and offers ample storage for all of your holiday kit from coats to sun hats. Lead through into the hub of the house, the open plan kitchen with a sunken informal dining area. The kitchen is fully fitted and superbly well stocked for guests to create the perfect menu using local produce, rally the chefs in the party and whip up a feast for all. The dining room can be accessed from the kitchen or the hallway and offers a versatile space be it lavish dinner with all the trimmings or simple suppers overlooking the water. A separate relaxing sitting room offers a quiet space away from the bustle of the kitchen area, guests can get cosy after a day on the water or choose to simply gaze out to sea from the comfort of the corner sofa. A practical utility room and cloakroom complete the ground floor layout. A central staircase leads to the first floor and collection of four luxury bedrooms. Choose from the serenity of the master bedroom with a private balcony, the coastal inspired room complete with fish print linens, or the soft greens or deep blues of the further rooms. A family bathroom on this floor welcomes those salty faces for a post-coast pamper. Ascend to the haven of the second floor where children can escape and create their own holiday vibe. Set in the eaves of the house, three further bedrooms and a shower room gather around a central seating area with large TV and low seating, the perfect hideaway.  


From your Holiday Door

For the ultimate inside outside ambiance, slide back the bi-fold doors of the living and kitchen areas and step out onto the terrace overlooking the water. Wile away the afternoon from your very own private vantage point looking down upon the river. From some of the world's largest superyachts to day boats, from kayaks to paddleboarders, the Carrick Roads is a watermans playground. Tan and white sails weave and glide below you whilst the bustle of the River Fal ferries keep the river scene busy. Leading from the terrace, a bubbling hot tub is perfectly positioned to the side of Halyard House and what could be better than an evening soak under Cornish skies. Steps lead down to the lawned area where children and dogs can safely play games. From the lawn, private steps take you down onto the beach which is perfect for a high tide swim or a low tide rockpool explore! The village of Flushing is within easy access, a short stroll away past the sailing school and down onto the quay. Flushing offers a few local pubs to enjoy and a tempting cafe right on the water. From Flushing in mid-high season, the River Fal Company offers a passenger ferry service to shuttle visitors over to Falmouth or to St Mawes just a short trip across the bay. Falmouth is well worth exploring for its cosmopolitan atmosphere combining cool cafes and stylish bars with the heritage of its sailing roots. Discover tales of shipwrecks and treasure at The Maritime Museum, wander up the castle or simply enjoy Discovery Quay where you can admire the boats in Pendennis Marina. Watersports enthusiasts can hire boats and kayaks nearby or join the crew aboard Cornwall Cruising Co. 

Whatever the season or the occasion, immerse yourself in the natural beauty of this very special corner of south Cornwall and complement your stay with the luxury of Halyard House.
