Welcome to The Fort

If you haven’t heard the buzz, The Fort is a development in the centre of York that has everyone talking.

Karen Waugh, the owner and creative visionary, would like to welcome you to The Fort’s blog and explain a little about its conception:

‘I was flicking through various travel publications trying to plan my next escape when I realised that so many cities offer exciting and unique places to stay; something which is limited in York. I did some research and felt that as a result of the current financial climate there was a niche in the market for comfortable, funky, easy on the pocket accommodation!

I started to brainstorm ideas with friends and family for ways in which to make staying at The Fort a unique and memorable experience. During this process we decided that it would be quite quirky if each of the rooms had their own identity, which could be achieved through using creative design ideas. In collaboration with Creative Protégé design agency we set up a competition for up and coming designers to put forward their ideas for the rooms and it just progressed from there…..’
