Glensilva, Flushing, Cornwall



My grandparent’s house

was a second home to me

where childish dreams thrived.

  1. Hello,
    I came across this post when looking into the history of Falmouth/Flushing. Our home looks over onto your Grandparents house. Is the beautiful Glensilva still in your family?

    Very best

    1. Hi Lisa, thank you for dropping me a line.

      Sadly Glensilva was sold shortly after my grandfather died and my grandmother moved to Mylor Bridge for a couple of years before she passed away in the 1990s.

      I lived in London, but spent pretty much every school holiday at Glensilva and loved it there. I was lucky to be able to stay in such a large house with my grandparents who I adored. They were very happy days indeed.

      I can still see the views of Falmouth in my mind’s eye now.
