Dawn Catcher description

Falmouth, with its magnificent natural harbour (the third largest in the world), winding streets and beaches, will keep you occupied for hours. The town's old harbour-side pubs, excellent shopping, art gallery and stunning National Maritime Museum simply complete the picture. Pendennis Castle, built by Henry VIII, is Falmouth's most popular attraction, sited on its own peninsula with superb panoramic sea views. Across from Falmouth harbour is the beautiful town of St Mawes, surrounded by the rocky coves, sandy beaches and lush green countryside of the Roseland Peninsula. Go there by car (15 miles) or take the passenger ferry from Falmouth (15 minutes). For nature lovers there is the Swanpool Nature Reserve, a lagoon and SSSI teeming with a variety of wildlife. Falmouth offers such a rich variety of landscape and attractions for people of all ages, it is sure to tempt you back time and again.

Cornwall's visitors are constantly tempted back to the beautiful coastline, tiny fishing villages, hidden coves and the world-class surfing. Whatever the reason, Cornwall has long cemented its place as one of Britain's premier holiday destinations.

Fantastic apartment, perfect location and the extra car parking spaces were a god send for our party all coming from different locations.. Would definitely stay there again.

Dawn Catcher is a lovely modern penthouse, it has all the facilities you need to make your stay comfortable.. The welcome pack was super the best one we have ever received . There's a few points that need addressing though. 1. It states there are 3 flights of stairs but on arrival the penthouse was on the third floor but you had to climb 6 flights of stairs ! 2. Instructions to the oven, hob top,dish washer and washing machine would be very helpful.There are very vague instructions within the welcome pack for the oven and extractor fan but a folder with more detailed instructions would be more helpful. 3. The balconies could do with some attention. they had not been cleaned and the furniture could have been cleaned too. The table on one of the balconies had seen better days and the top was loose and blew over in the wind. 4. It was a bit worrying that our only means of escape in case of a fire was down the main stairway ! A long way to get down if the fire was on the other floors below. should there not be a fire escape ? ****Owner response**** Thank you very much for your feedback following your stay at Dawn Catcher. We’re thrilled you liked the Penthouse and are happy you enjoyed your stay. Thank you also for raising a few points, which we’d like to cover here. 1) The Penthouse is advertised as being on the 3rd floor. We’ve never actually mentioned in the description the number of flights of stairs, but for the benefit of future guests we can confirm there are 6 separate flights, two per floor due to the high ceilings within the building and as mentioned in the information there is no lift/elevator. 2) Thank you for the recommendation, instructions on how to use the appliances are available and we’ll look at collating these into a folder. 3) Thank you for highlighting the balcony furniture to us, we’re sorry it wasn’t clean and this will be addressed. 4) We take fire safety very seriously and do all we can to ensure guests safety,. It is our understanding that Bank House was internally reconstructed in 2002 in full compliance with all fire safety regulations. The Penthouse is on the 3rd floor of a building with 9 apartments. They are serviced by a wide, central stairway which is to be used as the fire escape. All apartments have fire doors in order to protect this central stairwell and the premises have central monitored fire/smoke detectors throughout. The Penthouse also includes additional independent smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, extinguishers and fire blanket. Moreover, the electrical fuse box was replaced just months ago with high standard circuit breakers to ensure guest safety.

Amazing apartment, fabulous views, great location.. Beautifully presented and very well equipped. Walking distance of town centre and Maritime Museum, can also walk to the beach in about 10 to 15 mins. Would wholeheartedly recommend staying here. Sitting on the balcony and taking in the views was just bliss. A few points of constructive feedback: 1) Please clear the drain in the en-suite, it is not draining the shower and therefore running the shower too fast will flood the room 2) For such a well equipped kitchen there was nowhere for store cupboard goods i.e. where do I put my cans, pasta, rice etc? 3) Considering what I paid I do not expect to be buying dishwasher tablets and bin liners Having said this would I would definitely stay here again, my family absolutely loved it. Thank you for a great holiday!

The accommodation wowed us and was accurately reflected in the images on the web site .. It has a fabulous location and is close to all amenities .The maritime museum opposite is really good value for families as once paid you have unlimited access . It cost £26 for the family . The living area is spacious and comfortable and the kitchen is very well equipped . We went to St Mawes on the ferry which was small but authentic . The local Gyllyngvase beach was a 15 minutes walk and had a very smart modern cafe the area which sold local dishes and snacks .The beach was clean and was sand /shingle it shelved at the waters edge and beach shoes would soften underfoot . We went on an overcast day and the waves were quite strong , but we enjoyed the experience and the children aged 2 and 4 loved making sand castles . Prior to arrival I made and enquiry about confirming the facilities in the apartment and the Sykes call handler was responsive professional and very helpful . I had a smaller issue whilst staying and I used live chat who were also very helpful and provided an instant response which helped . We had a lovely holiday in Falmouth and I would not hesitate booking with Sykes again , from deposit to payment it was effortless . I also used the Sykes app on my phone and I had all the information regarding my booking and the areawhich I found invaluable . Thanks to all at Sykes and I would love to return to Cornwall again , my first holiday in this area since my children were young and it did not disappoint

Dawn Catcher is superbly positioned up away from the traffic and potential intrusion at street level, with exceptional views across the bay, but literally yards from the front door is a plethora of shops, pubs and eateries - many of them quirky and exciting.. All you need in town is within 10-15 mins walk at most and a lot of it is just seconds away. Falmouth is well located for day or half-day trips to other interesting places too - The Lizard, St Michael's Mount, Minack, St Austell, Truro to name a few. Brilliant stay, and we were very lucky with the weather.

The accommodation was great.. Very spacious, nicely furnished, well-equipped, comfortable beds, lovely welcome hamper. Fantastic location at the end of the high street with views over the harbour. Easy parking too, which seems to be a luxury in Cornwall. The only downside is the fact that, being on the top floor of the building, there are 3 flights of stairs to contend with. This wasn't a problem for us (it helped work off all the delicious meals we had eaten in Falmouth), but it is something to be aware of. A very enjoyable holiday in excellent accommodation.
