About L. Salter

We are lucky enough to be in our fourth year of owning and summer letting Split Cottage. In winter it is our home then in spring we spruce it all up and ship out to let you lovely people have a holiday.

L. Salter purchased this cottage in 2010

Why L. Salter chose Flushing

We loved the peaceful village location with instant access to the coast path and beaches. Essential for our favourite dog walk straight from the front door. Also the fact that in just 10 minutes you you can cross the river to Falmouth on the foot ferry. If like us, you are into boats in any way, we are a stones throw from clubs that do gig rowing, kayaking, yachting, dinghy sailing(Sir Ben Ainslie learned to sail just round the corner).The village is well placed for exploration and adventures to the best of Cornwall.

What makes this cottage unique

Split Cottage is located within 2 minutes slow walk of the shop, both pubs, the Waterside restaurant, the ferry and the panoramic bowling green which has a childrens play park. We kept the cottage fairly original. Maintaining the beamed ceiling and slate floors instil a relaxing atmosphere, thou you will still find it well equipped. We installed a projector in place of a giant Tv which has been quite a hit with children and teens. Also good choice for the people who would rather enjoy the cosiness of the woodburner and conversation without a large blank screen being part of the room. The sheltered courtyard is a good spot to have a morning coffee by the pond and maybe a snack off the fig tree while in season. Due to their favourable aspect all rooms catch a lions share of afternoon sun.
