We were warmly welcomed by Jill and the apartment and setting far surpassed our expectations. I reserve the word "perfect" for exceptional descriptions and this accommodation was just that. It was a beautifully appointed apartment, everything at hand to self cater and live well. The setting overlooking the beautiful gardens and then the landscape beyond was really a wonderful experience. Jill had so many added extras and both she and her husband seemed to delight in making our stay so memorable.
We loved our stay at Squirrel Nest. Jill was so welcoming. There to greet us with a big smile, left us milk, coffee, tea etc as well as cake, which was delicious and eggs from the chickens, best I've ever tasted!
The apartment is so well kitted out, everything you could ever need and want, books, puzzles, DVDs. The kitchen is so well equipped, better than mine at home! Lovely oven, we ate in a fair bit as we have a 3 year old, so it was just perfect for us.
We loved spotting the sun rising behind the beautiful tree, all from our bedroom window and our son chatted away about the bunny rabbits and chicks he could see, all part of the lovely grounds.
This really is a special place and I was surprised at how rural it feels, whilst being so close to town. Easy 10 minute bus ride into York each day (we never had to wait long for a bus either) and so peaceful to come home to at night. An added bonus that recycling and composting are a priority as this is important to us.
Thanks Jill and Steve
We really enjoyed our stay at the squirrel nest. Scenic location and excellent accommodation. The underfloor heating made it feel very cosy and the kitchen was very well equipped. Amazing shower too! Jill and Steve had thought of everything and the apartment has been furnished to a really high standard. Highly recommend this place.
Jill made me feel very welcome and provided all bread, milk, tea, coffee and preserves so I didn't need to rush to the supermarket. Also the home made lemon cake was absolutely delicious, thank you so much for being such a perfect host. Everything about the flat exceeded all descriptions and was much better than I imagined. The location was very quite and picturesque. If I don't come back sooner, I will definitely stay with you again for my daughter's graduation. It was a perfect stay for me and my daughter.
Thanks Yasmin, we are really pleased you had a nice time visiting your daughter, it was a pleasure to meet you. Thanks for all your kind comments, the dates were really yummy by the way!
We had a lovely 4 day stay. The apartment was in a great location, very well equipped and easy to get to and from even on public transport.
Jill and Steve were good hosts - helpful with anything we needed but otherwise we were left to our own devices - perfect :)
We had a stunning time, York was a stones throw away and the apartment was fabulous. We were generously provided with bread, honey, milk and cake. Superb. The hosts were on hand with advice about York and helped me out with my poor sense if direction! The flat felt much bigger than how it appears in the photographs. The furniture and fittings were of a very high standard and we really felt relaxed and happy. THANK YOU!!! xxx
We felt truly spoilt at Jill & Steve's guest house. The surroundings were peaceful and beautiful. The apartment itself was clean, well put together, with great attention to detail and little luxuries. Jill baked a delicious cake for us and greeted us on arrival giving us plenty of information and to ensure our stay was as comfortable as possible.
We hope to go back and visit again soon!
Thanks for the great review, it was a pleasure to host you. Glad my second attempt at a Gluten free cake was a success!!
Everything was perfect!
Nice welcome pack, hosts always there to provide everything we needed.
We also borrowed the bikes available, and even in winter it was a really good way to get to the city centre! (cheaper than getting a bus, and it takes only about 20-30min. - plus you get some really nice views.)
Again, nothing to complain here. The apartment is really well equipped, perfectly clean, and looks really really nice.
You can't find it in Google Maps or anything, but the instructions for getting there were very clear, and the location itself is amazing.
Would definitely stay there again!
Thanks for the great feedback we are glad you enjoyed your stay and cycling in the snow!!
We loved welcoming in the new year from the apartment! We had intended to go out, but we loved it so much we decided to eat in and watch the fireworks over York from the balcony. The place is beautifully decorated and to a very high standard. It is warm, homely and peaceful and the kitchen is excellently equipped. It took us 11 mins (Sat nav!) to drive into York. If it were warmer and not icey, we'd have cycled as it would have been a lovely ride in and parking in York is pricey. Little touches, like the honey from the bees, and a gluten free cake (I'd mentioned to Jill in advance that I was gluten free) upon arrival, made us feel really welcome. would highly recommend to anyone!
Thanks for all your kind comments.
Couldn't recommend the squirrel nest enough! My partner and I had such a relaxing time here, the apartment itself is extremely comfortable - great modern bathroom, cozy bedroom and a kitchen/dining room/lounge with everything you need to feel right at home. The house is in a great spot overlooking the farm, but close enough that we just walked in to town. Steve and Jill were really hospitable on our few encounters - a huge thanks to you guys!
Glad 'Squirrel Nest' made your last Christmas in the UK a relaxing time, enjoy the rest of your time in England. Jill & Steve
I hosted Jill and Steve in my B&B, and it was a pity they only staied for few days!
They are great host, cheerful, friendly and respectful.
It's a pleasure to chat with them, they are dynamic and interested in art and culture.
