For those looking for something a little different for accommodation options within Essex, or who may just want to stumble from an atmospheric pub into a cosy guest room, there are plenty of pubs and inns throughout the county that will accommodate you in comfort. Here are just some of the tempting options you have before you.
The Cross Keys - Saffron Walden
The Cross Keys provides for a unique experience with rustically decorated rooms within a beautiful building upon a 12th century high street. The Cross Keys then actually consists of a pub with a separate restaurant which are both next to a coffee shop.
The Hare and Hounds - Layer Breton
The Hare and Hounds is perfectly positioned for those who want to visit Colchester town, Colchester Zoo or benefit from the connections from Marks Tey Train Station. The rooms are simply decorated, with a focus upon being fresh and modern and breakfast is either hot or continental, as according to your preferences.
The Sun Inn - Dedham
The Sun Inn is a large 15th century coaching inn which has endeavoured to create rooms that are particularly luxurious. They also pride themselves upon offering a good range of options for breakfast including continental, a la carte and a full English.
The White Hart Inn - Margaretting Tye
The White Hart Inn is known for its modern British menu, which is served up within beautifully rural surroundings. The Inn's accommodation features just two double Bed and Breakfast rooms, so if you wish to book into these modern yet traditionally decorated rooms then you may well want to book ahead.
The Windmill Motor Inn - Little Waltham
The Windmill Motor Inn is featured within a beautiful old working mill house. It features 7 rooms with each being home to modern, clean decor. Breakfast is either continental or hot (or both, if you're particularly hungry!) and the bar features the very best of real ales.
The Riverside Inn - Chelmsford
The Riverside Inn is located upon the scenic River Chelmer in the City of Chelmsford and dates back to the 17th century. The inn has five rooms with a definite touch of rustic charm, which is nicely balanced with a few modern features, such as free WiFi for all guests.
The Bell Inn - Stanford-le-Hope
The Bell Inn is one of the oldest inns within Essex and dates back to the 15th century. It provides beautifully traditional rooms which are each individually decorated as well as including feature walls, exposed beams and 4-poster beds. The Bell Inn is the perfect example of why going beyond a Premier Inn really can be beautifully different.
The Lodge Country Inn - Battlesbridge
The Lodge Country Inn presents a perfect example of how such accommodation can be both seriously comfortable whilst maintaining a friendly price point. It's set within 10-acre grounds and boasts en-suite rooms with TVs and complimentary coffee and tea as standard.
