The barn overlooks an apple tree orchard with far reaching views towards the pretty village of Hunsingore, which is located by the River Nidd. Many of our guests have commented on the wildlife they have seen from the lounge area including hares,pheasants,hedgehogs,deer and toads.There is also a bird feeder which attracts many feathered visitors including woodpeckers,wrens,sparrows and bluetits..Outside the barn entrance, there is an ornamental pond with fountain and Koi carp and 2 fig trees growing up the wall, hence the name.

About Suzanne Margiotta

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.

Suzanne Margiotta purchased this barn in 1980

Why Suzanne Margiotta chose North Yorkshire

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.

What makes this barn unique

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.

We had a very relaxing short break at Fig Tree Barn. The accommodation was spotlessly clean, very comfortable and very well equipped. It is ideally situated to visit Leeds, York, Harrogate and all the surrounding tourist attractions. Thank you very much Suzanne and Frank for a lovely stay and we would definitely like to stay here again.

We stayed at the property over the New Year period. It was perfect for our needs. You are within easy driving distance of York, Wetherby and Harrogate, which are all great places to explore. We also found the proximity to the A1 great, but once in the property, it was so peaceful. The accomodation is immaculate, as beautiful as any hotel, but with all the comforts of a gorgeous pad. We will be back, in fact we didnt want to leave.

Absolutely perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

Suzanne and Frank offer a lovely and comfortable barn conversion at Fig Tree in Hunsingore, just minutes north of Wetherby in Yorkshire (where we have family) and 20 minutes from the city of York. The barn was very true to its online photos and we found it to have all the amenities promised. The kitchen was modern, complete and thoughtfully appointed and we were able to cook many meals at home. The beds were comfortable, the showers were hot and we very much felt at home during our week in Yorkshire. It was a great home base to visit with our family and to do some sightseeing around the region. Hunsingore is a very small village, but it's just minutes away from places where there is a lot to see and do. We also found that it was very quiet and secure, close to the motorway but seemingly in another world. Frank's craftsmanship is evident throughout the apartment, and Suzanne's decorative touches were particularly appreciated, including the small Christmas tree and the lovely fresh flowers on the table. They had all kinds of thoughtful touches, including fresh milk in the refrigerator for coffee and tea. It was a treat to have a homey place to come back to after a day of excursions. There were no unhappy surprises and the property seemed absolutely true to its description. We are hoping to return to Fig Tree Barn one day to see the beauties of Yorkshire in the spring, summer or fall! These visitors from Maine in the U.S. were delighted with our stay.

xmas stay at the luxury barn

  • 5 of 5

had a great stay at the barn , the host suzanne and frank were very obliging and discreet , the barn was very clean and modern decor , the wood burner was a pleasant addition as you could relax in the evening in front of the fire watching the wildlife out of the large windows.

the barn is in a secluded location but close to a variety of pubs and restaurants.

a visit to brimham rocks and harrogate is a must.

a very enjoyable stay i must say.

oh and chino is so adorable the chocolate labrador.

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!
