The owners are an absolute delight. The room very modern with excellent toilet / shower facilities. A nice light breakfast room with range of cereals etc . Good English breakfast too. Though no evenng meal, the breakfast room is freely available for use with your own takeaway meal. Nearly forgot to mention secure/ locked parking.

We stayed two nights at the Courtyard in the family room as we had my Granddaughter to stay on the second night.

We easily parked our car outside our room which... More

When looking for a B&B for our recent family trip to see relatives in the area we needed 2 rooms, 1 for my partner and I, the other for my elderly grandmother. The important things for us were (the boring bits) ground floor, security, close proximity rooms, easy access facilities and nearby parking. This place ticks all the boxes and... More

We found options very limited when trying to find a dog friendly B&B in Essex. We went with The Courtyards Brightlingsea, which has 6 rooms set in a walled courtyard with electric gates. We had room 3 which was one of two dog friendly rooms – decent sized double to accommodate us and our German Shepherd, large en-suite shower room.... More

Very happy to recommend the single room for fellow solo visitors. Huge bathroom, great breakfast, excellent price. Great service and care from hosts. Very hard to find a single room to this high standard at a fair price.

A misunderstanding about our booking was immediate acknowledged by Emily and every effort was made to put things right. Happily things were soon resolved though Emily and Darius insisted on making a full refund for our one night stay with chocolates added!

The courtyard rooms is a lovely place to stay, right in the centre of Brightlingsea. The rooms are very comfortable and breakfast is as good as it gets. Brightlingsea itself offers several good places to eat and plenty of pubs.
