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!

I had very simple needs, but David was really helpful in printing me out a map to make sure I made it to the pub (Freshfields - also recommended!) Nice and clean, well presented with all mod cons, ensuite shower, coffee/tea, cable tv, wifi. Look forward to visiting again, thanks!

I thoroughly recommend this B & B in a lovely area of Formby. Dave and Rosalind are very helpful, easy going and the place has a nice friendly family feel. Nice Double rooms and a excellent cooked breakfast with great coffee. There are some great pubs and bars in Formby, and a beautiful beach with sand dunes down the road.

Rosalind & Dave were both fantastic hosts. Not only did they steer us towards something we would have ordinarily not known about (Anthony Gormley's installation in Crosby) but the best pub i hadnt been to before in some years (The Freshfield pub). Breakfast was great. Books and games are there if you need them, but we went for the fantastic... More

I was on a visit to Formby with my son after many years away and was delighted to be able to stay at this excellent B&B - with good food and a warm welcome from the very friendly and helpful couple who run it and offer useful advice on places to see and things to do.

My fiancée and I stayed at this B&B when visiting my parents in Formby. The welcome we received from the owners was fantastic (including Bonnie the Labrador!) and we would recommend this property to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in Formby. Although Bonnie lived in the downstairs of the house, there was no "dog smell" and rest assured that... More

Whilst I was looking for only basic accommodation, I found this a more than hospitable and flexible option. We had a lovely clean bright room, comfortable bed, and first class breakfast! Our hosts were hospitable and friendly without being intrusive. The Squirrels is within easy walking distance of many amenities including shops, restaurants, pubs, trains, woodland and seashore walks. Liverpool... More
