About the Owner

We are a recently retired married couple called Frank and Suzanne.We both had busy careers.Suzanne worked in Human Resource management and Frank ran a flooring and carpeting company.

However we wanted to keep active and started our barn conversion a year or so ago,managing the project ourselves and doing much of the work.

We were keen to have it as a holiday let and know we will enjoy meeting our guests and sharing with them our passion for the area and information on all the beautiful parts of Yorkshire to explore

We have spent much time and money to make the property into accommodation that we ourselves would love to stay in.We love the countryside and enjoy living in a rural location with no near neighbours but close to some friendly village communities.

Liked it so much before so we came back

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in the lovely barn last year there was no other choice. It is convenient for the Dales, Harrogate, Yorkshire Moors, York and many other places we did not get to see. Located close to the A1(M) but there is no traffic noise, it is very quiet and secure behind locked gates. Very comfortable, spacious and everything we needed during our two stays there.

This time we visited Harlow Carr RHS Gardens at Harrogate, and in York, York Boat, Castle Museum, York Chocolate Story, The House of Trembling Madness and Wetherby Whaler. All to be recommended along of course with Fig Tree Barn. If you are looking to book accommodation, look no further!

Lovely Break in Superb Accomodation

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderfully relaxing week in Fig Tree Barn. The accomodation was superb with everything you could think of....and more (electric reclining sofa, Bluetooth radio and no touch lighting in the bathroom mirrors).

The location provides a great base for exploring North Yorkshire with both Harrogate and York reached in under 30 minutes (the York Park & Ride is simple). The Dales are also easily reached as well as beautiful excursions to Ripon and Fountains Abbey - well worth a visit.

Wetherby is near with local amenities (and a first class racecourse).

All in all, this is a 5* barn conversion set in a rural and peaceful area but close enough for some stunning and memorable day trips.

We have already decided to return and are working out our dates.

Fig Tree Barn is very well presented with thoughtful attention to detail.

  • 5 of 5

Fig Tree Barn is centrally placed to explore both the Moors and Dales of Yorkshire.

Tucked away in a relaxing atmosphere, discretely helpful nearby Owners.

Information available to help find local amenities and also places of interest and adventures.

We would definitely recommend.

Great place to stay to explore the Dales and Moors

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as described and very well equipped. It was also spotlessly clean.

Everything you could want is there, all set in a lovely location with nothing but fields and trees around it.

It is ideally located close to the A1m, although you would never know as you cannot see or hear it, so getting out and about was very easy making it a great location from which to explore Yorkshire.

Suzanne and Frank were very welcoming and are really nice people, only too happy to offer advise on places to eat and see. Chino the dog is also happy to see visitors!! He loved being made a fuss of.

We have stayed in quite a few barn conversions and this one did not disappoint.

We had a great time during our stay (we being 2 couples). There is plenty of space and the roof terrace was great.(weather permitting!!)

In our opinion, this is a hidden gem and we are already looking forward to our next visit.

We would recommend this to anyone who wishes to see Yorkshire, the Moors, Dales or York. There is plenty to do and see around the area.

It is a credit to Suzanne and Frank.

Would struggle to find a more convenient location!!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very well maintained, the windows and sky lights make it lovely and bright. Great to have two bathrooms, no queuing up for the toilet! Comfortable furniture, nice to put your legs up on the recliner sofas after a day out. We enjoyed watching the birds visiting the bird table from the windows of the lounge/dining area. The outside roof top area is great when it is warm, comfy rattan furniture with cushions.

The apartment is ideally situated to go North or South on the A1 and is only minutes away from joining the main A59 which goes to York and Harrogate. If you are visiting any events in York such as the Minster or the National Railway Museum there is a very good Park & Ride site at Poppleton Bar on the A59 before the main York ring road. Harrogate is also very near and ideal for any events such as the Spring and Autumn Flower Show or indeed the Great Yorkshire Show or any of the other events held at the Showground. The Showground is on the outskirts of Harrogate and from Fig Tree Barn it is a extremely easy journey. We would recommend this property to anybody wanting a peaceful holiday and also easy access to many lovely places in Yorkshire.

Location

From the Owner

We had always wanted a property with land for keeping horses and other pets. Lund House has 3 acres with lovely farmland views and no close neighbours. However it is not remote as we are close to main roads and Wetherby,York and Harrogate are all an easy drive away. We love the North Yorkshire countryside and Suzanne does regular walks with the Harrogate ramblers,rides a friend's horse and Frank enjoys his golf at Aldwark manor.From our home it is easy to visit so many places and we often also enjoy a day trip out to the coast(with fish and chips of course), the Dales and the North York moors. Hunsingore village is a friendly and thriving community with regular events in the village hall and church and the local Bridge Inn is great for good meals and beverages.

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

The beautiful North Yorkshire coast is just over one hours drive away via easy roads. We have the world heritage resort of Whitby with its famous Abbey and connection to Captain Cook and Bram Stoker's Dracula, Scarborough with its lovely sandy beaches and ancient castle and Flamborough Head, which is an RSPB sanctuary with magnificent cliffs. Bridlington and Robin Hoods bay are also easily accessible for a great day out, along with the quaint seaside villages of Runswick Bay and Staithes.

Travel:

The nearest airport is Leeds/Bradford, ( approx 20 miles away). The ferry port of Hull is approx 60 miles away. The use of a car or motorbike is highly recommended for exploring Yorkshire from the property, although there are good and flat cycling routes for the fit and active. Secure off-road parking is provided for up to 2 cars and bikes. There is a train station at Cattal (approx 1.5 miles) with frequent trains to York, Harrogate, Knaresborough and Leeds.A new York park & ride has opened A59

Distances:

Hunsingore village on the river Nidd is less than a half mile walk via a road footpath. Wetherby, an attractive market town, is 3 miles away (an off-road cycle track is also available.) York and the Spa town of Harrogate are both 8 miles away and an easy drive (park and ride) or train journey. There are so many nearby places to visit, including Fountains Abbey, Newby Hall,Harewood House,Beningborough Hall (NT).The Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors are only an hours drive on easy main roads.

Further Details:

The Bridge Inn, both a pub and restaurant at Walshford, is only a 5 minute walk. The Bridge is privately owned and serves good food, including carveries and drinks 7 days a week. Wetherby is only 3 miles away and has free parking in the town. It also has a large Morrisons supermarket and a local market on Thursdays. There are many restaurants, including a Thai, Indian and Italian, plus plenty of takeaways and cafes, including a Costa. There are a number of banks and other quality local shops to explore.You can even buy a day ticket for fishing on the beautiful River Wharf at Wetherby. York is a fabulous, world-renowned medieval and roman city. You can visit the fantastic York minster, walk around the ancient walls, explore the Shambles with its overhanging shops, stroll along the river, take a boat trip, visit the Jorvik viking museum, the famous round tower and so many museums and churches. Harrogate is also a lovely genteel spa town, set on the stray ( a huge tract of green preserved space) and with the pump room museum, the Turkish baths, the Royal Hall and Valley gardens.There are 2 famous Betty's tearooms where you are transported back to a bygone age of elegance,one centrally located and one in the Harlow Carr gardens. Explore the Montpellier quarter, home to 80 exclusive shops,art galleries and antique shops.

There are countless scenic countryside walks in the area to enjoy and the owners, who are keen walkers themselves, can provide all the necessary details.

Facilities

From the Owner

There is plenty of secure parking within our grounds and a lock up shed for bikes if required.Whilst the barn is located in our grounds it is detached with its own entrance and far enough away to enjoy complete privacy. Guests can walk a short distance (approx 5 minutes) to the Bridge Inn for meals or can walk into Hunsingore village along a footpath to explore the river Nidd and several rights of way. The other member of our family is a chocolate labrador called Chino who is very friendly but has his own enclosed garden space to run around in.We also have lots of colourful koi carp fish in the pond who are also very friendly and enjoy eating from your hands.
