The Courtyard Rooms

Smart, friendly accommodation at the heart of Brightlingsea

Be the first to review

Owned and run by married couple Darius and Emily (and their little baby Lewis!), the Courtyard Rooms offers guests the comfort and friendliness of a family-run B&B, whilst maintaining the professionalism and quality of a small hotel.

Freedom of movement for our guests is what makes the Courtyard Rooms truly unique.  With independent access to your own front door, guests are invited to come and go without restriction throughout their stay.  This is particularly useful for our business travellers, early risers or late nighters!

​All of our rooms at the Courtyard Rooms are ensuite and designed to reflect the rich maritime history of Brightlingsea.  And with an excellent butcher, baker, greengrocer and dairy on our doorstep, it’s no surprise that all fresh ingredients at the Courtyard Rooms are locally sourced.

We are happy to welcome families and those travelling with dogs.

We look forward to welcoming you through our doors and hope we can make your stay as pleasant as possible!

Darius, Emily & Lewis


Q Do you accept dogs?

Yes - we welcome sociable, well trained dogs! Bookings including dogs are restricted to certain rooms which allow more freedom of movement for your pet. Please let us know when booking that you will be bringing a canine companion.

Q Do you accept children?

We do indeed! We have one family room which can hold two adults and two children (or one adult and three children). We also have a travel cot available which can be used in most rooms. Please speak to us about your requirements and we'll find the best room for you.

Q Do you have on site parking?

We have parking on site for three average-sized cars. Our carpark is allocated on a first come, first served basis and we cannot reserve parking spaces for any guests except those who display a blue disability badge.

Q Do you cater for vegans/vegetarians/coeliacs, etc.?

We are happy to cater for most dietary requirements, though we will do a much better job if we have notice. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that our kitchen is entirely free from nuts.

Q Can you accommodate those with mobility requirements?

All of our rooms are on the ground floor. Some are equipped with aids (such as grab handles), and most have a walk in shower. Our website lists a full Access Statement with details of each room, but feel free to contact us to discuss your specific requirements.

Q When can I check in?

We ask that guests arrive between the hours of 4 - 9pm.

Q Are your rooms en suite?

ALL of our rooms are en suite.
