“Wonderful Stay”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

My partner and I recently had the pleasure of staying in the Squirrels. What a delightful B&B - I can highly recommend a stay there. The room and en suite were very clean, well furnished and very light and airy. Location was in a peaceful residential location and perfectly placed for exploring the coast. Nothing was too much trouble for Rosalind & Dave and they were extremely welcoming. Breakfast was delicious and varied. We had help in choosing a place to eat for our evening meal and advice on the best places to visit during our stay. All in all I can thoroughly recommend the Squirrels if you are looking to stay in this part of the country.

Room Tip: Both rooms equally as good as each other

We booked to stay in the Squirrels' recently when attending a friend's wedding. We booked two rooms for my wife, myself, my daughter and her boyfriend. Our two double rooms were both accessed from a lovely lounge area and a very spacious bathroom was also to be found off the lounge.

The rooms were lovely and clean, spacious and well decorated and equipped. The bathroom was huge with great fittings and loads of fresh, fluffy towels.

We had arranged to arrive early in order to get changed for the wedding and Sheila was happy to be able to accommodate this request. Upon arrival we were given a huge, fresh cafetiere of coffee along with home made biscuits.

Having our own key meant easy access following a late return from the celebrations. Breakfast next morning was great with a full range of fresh fruit, full English, toast, cereals, coffee, tea etc. Nothing too much trouble!

We count ourselves as quite discerning guests and yet were unable to find any aspects of our stay that we could criticize. Sheila was the perfect host with a great B&B.

Room Tip: The two rooms on the upper floor are perfect for a family.

We had a lovely stay with Rosalind and Dave in their pretty and comfortable house. Everything was as nice as it could be: Delicious breakfast, pleasant rooms, a good night's sleep and a lot of generous help as regards places to eat or see, and transportation.
Dave who is a hobby-genealogist even offered to do research on my family tree which I appreciated very much.
We highly recommend this B&B to anyone who would like a relaxing and enjoyable stay.

We had a wonderful visit at The Squirrels. The property is located in a quiet neighborhood and we had a nice blend of peaceful walks on the beach/squirrel reserve and going into Southport and Liverpool. The room was clean, comfortable and the beds provided a good night's sleep. Rosalind was a fabulous host who gave us advice on things to do in the area. I am a vegetarian and she was able to accomodate me at breakfast with a fantastic fruit salad and eggs any way you could think of. We would stay here again!

Visitors should take careful note of the address rather than looking for the customary B&B sign. Lazy navigation on my part and soon fixed.
Rosalind put our bike in the garage, offered us drinks and gave us recommendations for places to eat out. It was Mr Foreman who arrived later, who decided that cyclists on a rainy cold September day would appreciate a bit of heating and he was very interested in our adventures.
A very comfortable B&B with excellent places to eat out nearby.

Stayed here with my husband and another couple to go to our friends 40th birthday party. Lovely friendly welcome when we arrived, nicely decorated and spotlessly clean rooms. The owner even gave us a lift to the party when we asked about local taxi firms and gave us cards for taxi firms to get us back again.
Nice as it was, one of my friends still insisted on reserving judgement until she had eaten breakfast (well I suppose it is a bed and breakfast!). What a choice! Considering that there are only two rooms, we didn't expect much variety. However there was a great choice of cereal, a gorgeous looking bowl of fresh fruit salad and orange juice on the table and a full english breakfast, cooked to order. My test is always how good the coffee is and I wasn't disappointed.
I would also like to add that although the owners are really nice and friendly, there was never that feeling that they were 'with you' all the time. A very relaxing stay, I'm just sorry we didn't book in for an second night to make a weekend of it.

Lovely part of Formby and transport by train or bus was so easy if you wanted to go to Liverpool, Southport etc, Ideal place to stay as a stop over or like us for a few nights. Couldn't fault anything at the Squirrels B & B, nice quite area so no problems in sleeping, bed comfortable and lovely shower. Breakfast was so filling didn't need anything else to eat until late afternoon, which was handy when we spent a couple of days in Liverpool walking around doing the tourist thing! Would certainly book to stay there again when we next come to Formby.

Room Tip: Only two rooms available, but one suitable for a family
