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 (website hidden) 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
Fantastic apartment near York. Beautiful location and all amenities you could ask for. I would highly recommend the Squirrels Nest. A home away from home.
Thanks very much Laura for your kind comments, we have worked hard to make the 'Nest' as homely as possible.
Jill is great she is very friendly and helpful, She made me a cake :). about 15 mins nice walk to shops and restaurants. I see rabbits running around :) the view .... it looks like a painting.
Thanks very much Corrine, and we hope you enjoyed the rest of your visit in the UK
Hosts where there upon our arrival and gave us the guided tour of this amazing flat. Not too far away from the city centre but yet the feeling of the Yorkshire country this was exactly what we was looking for. The latest eco friendly kit out, the beautiful layout makes the flat seem big and spacious. IMO this is better than a 5* hotel, full privacy, no noisy traffic whizzing by, a comfortable bed with an amazing shower. A cute kitchen as well for those who want to cook in the flat along with a table and chair set that fits in perfectly. Want my advice? book this, you wont regret it and find yourself returning again! Our first experience with airbnb has left us with a thirst for more!!
Thanks Michael it was a pleasure to host you and Amanda, we are so glad your first experience of Airbnb was a success!
"Squirrel Nest" is fabulous!
We had the good fortune to spot Jill and Steve's apartment on the day it was first listed. It turned out to be even better than pictured/described.
The location feels delightfully rural but is still convenient for access to York.
The apartment is light, spacious, south-facing and superbly equipped.
Jill and Steve could not have made us more welcome. They are friendly, obliging and considerate hosts, discreetly in the background but always available when needed.
There were fresh roses in each room, and in the kitchen a home-baked cake, home baked bread, butter, conserves, fresh eggs! and a bottle of wine.
We just loved this place and wished we did not have to get back to London.

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.
