Brightlingsea Motel opened April 2006 and was a brand new development. We are 15 minutes drive from Colchester, England's oldest recorded Town and 20 Minutes from the seaside Town of Clacton on sea. The Hotel is situated in the heart of Brightlingsea town centre which is next door to St James Church. Brightlingsea hosts all major banks, traditional shops, public houses and cafes and only a five minute walk to the seafront which is being further developed to boast more shops and points of interest. As by definition, you are free to come and go as you please.
