The best Airbnb experience we've had in the 8 weeks of touring England and Scotland. Our hosts, Jill and Steve, were very accessible and most welcoming. The apartment is fully equipped with everything one could wish for an extended stay. The added touches made our stay sheer luxury; from the individual dressing gowns, to homemade cake, freshly laid eggs, bread and milk - all were very much appreciated after a long day's journey. The apartment is thoughtfully furnished, very comfortable with a wide, comfy bed and warm shower. There was a vast array of information provided about York, the Moors, and the Dales, including a detailed city map of York. Jill gave us directions to the bus which was very convenient as the bus stopped right outside the Theatre Royal, right inside the old city. We hope to return to this lovely spot some day.

What a great AirBnB. Everything we needed was furnished. We were very pleased that we stayed in Jill's place. If we every travel to York again, we would want to stay there again.

The Squirrels Nest was nicely decorated. It was neat and tidy. The views from the deck were amazing. The bed was the most comfort bed we slept in during our vacation. The bus stop is about a 5-10 minute walk from the place. We enjoyed the fresh eggs, lovely cake and the other goodies. Thanks you for your hospitality. We enjoyed our time in York.

Even though the neighborhood was a little ways out of town, I enjoyed the quietness after the hustle and bustle in the city. Everything was very thoughtfully set up. I would definitely stay here again.

We had a really nice time at Jill's apartment and will highly recommend a stay to friends and family. 'Squirrel's nest' was very well appointed, spotlessly clean and in a lovely location. Jill was very friendly and welcoming.

We loved the place. It is quiet and secluded, surrounded by open fields and great views. Yet it is only a few minutes into Acomb and Knapton. Take Jill's advice and take the 10 minute bus ride on the #1 into York. There were no surprises -- it looks exactly like the photos. Comfortable and immaculate. Would return in a heartbeat! Be sure to ask for directions. Our nav sys wanted to take us into a field, but our hosts talked us in.

The accommodations, location and hosts were outstanding! Their glorious apartment featured such high-quality construction, comfy furnishings and wonderful appliances. Plus, the country manor setting and grounds are absolutely beautiful. Jill and Steve were so welcoming, helpful and responsive. Even willing to meet us upon arrival along the route nearby, guiding us right to the door! Would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to explore Yorkshire and access historic York in just minutes.
