What a fab find! Lovely room, lovely breakfast, lovely location & you've guessed it, a lovely host. Dave even dropped us off at our family party venue ~ where do you get that kind of service nowadays?? We didn't personally use these, but there is also a guest lounge & a fantastic garden to make the most of. Would def... More

Lovely people, nice room over looking the garden. The bedding was really nice, crisp and clean and we fell in love with Bonnie the dog. Good location for Formby, the beach and the red squirrels. Would stay again.

My husband booked a weekend in Formby so we could see red squirrels and he chose this B&B. It was extremely comfortable and Dave was very friendly and welcoming. It turned out that Rosalind had gone away to a craft weekend and left him to hold the fort but he did it magnificently! The room was extremely spacious and comfortable.... More

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.

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
