Amazing place. It is a home away from home. You almost feel like you are still a teenager being taken care of at your parents home. Amazing hosts: calm, patient, friendly, available. Owner printed a map of Formby, and told us about pub, city center, other places to visit. Big comfortable bed, towels available on the room and games as... More

Very Clean: - They have a dog, but you would never know Friendly - I was made very welcome and looked after And Go The Extra Mile - Dave collected me from the station (which isn't far) to ensure that I didn't get lost. This is the best of B&B - they want to look after you!

We stayed for 5 days whilst working locally, very friendly hosts who were willing to drop us off at work in the morning after a scrumptious breakfast. Very nice comfortable rooms with daily towel change. Overall great stay thank you the squirrels.

We recently had a wedding in Formby and stayed here. Lovely couple who even dropped us off at our venue. Double room is perfect and the bed VERY comfy. Breakfast in the morning was again perfect. We will definitely stay again. Shaun and Simon

The Squirrels is very well situated in a quiet area close to the centre of Formby. We stayed for two nights. The double room was a little cramped and, though the room had en-suite shower and hand basin facilities this area was very small. We were aware when booking that the toilet on the landing was shared by guests in... More

We stayed for one night while in Formby for a family birthday. Comfortable and clean room and the host and hostess were very welcoming. David was kind enough to drive us to the Formby golf and Country club for the party. Breakfast was excellent, we will stay again when we return. Thank you to our host and hostess for a... More

An excellent B&B establishment in a quiet area of Formby. Our doubleroom was spacious and well appointed and very clean. We were made to feel very welcome as soon as we arrived and on requesting details of a taxi to take us out for a meal, David kindly offered to take us. Breakfast was excellent, my husband enjoyed the full... More

We stayed here for two nights in the double room, and had a great stay! Had a generous offer of a lift from the train station to the B&B and were warmly welcomed in. We were given a map on arrival, with places of interest written on, directions to the beach and a short cut to the main part of... More

An excellent B&B in a peaceful and convenient location in Formby. The double room was large and airy with ample storage space and an en-suite shower. Both the room and the linen were spotlessly clean and there were complimentary tea/coffee making facilities, wi-fi and TV available. The breakfast selection was good and Rosalind and David were friendly and welcoming hosts.... More

An excellent B&B. Friendly people, large room, excellent cake! Good access to the Formby Point squirrels, beach and pine woods. The hosts are helpful with printing off maps for access to local sights and with other information such as how to avoid road works. Sorry if I'm mingy about prices but I come from the era when B&B was £15!
