Is this your first time at Ellie & Co? If so, hello and welcome to my travel blog, with a twist, and I hope you enjoy your visit. I’m glad you popped by and I’m looking forward to showing you around. I wanted to have fun with my site and make it feel like a ‘secret travel club’, so it’s organised like a hotel: call the Concierge Desk for travel posts; Room Service for travel-related lifestyle posts; then kick back for some Cocktail Hour nostalgia, people watching and gossiping, before a trip to the Gift Shop. But I’ll take you for a little tour to get you settled in:


Concierge Desk:

Secret Brighton – All my favourite alternative, unusual and off-the-beaten path discoveries in the city in one place

Brighton Like a Local – Tips for things Brighton locals would see and do, local restaurant recommendations, shopping tips and itineraries to help you plan your trip to Brighton,

Unique Hotels – Authentic and interesting places in Brighton, Sussex and beyond, including hotels, houseboats, cabins, apartments, bed and breakfasts and campsites

Wanderlust – My growing collection of off-beat, little-known hidden gem places around the world I’ve either visited or armchair travelled to. This is also where you’ll find post on my own adventures

Brighton map – coming soon


Room Service:

 Travel-themed lifestyle posts – Travel the world through art, design, photography, fashion, food, books, films and unique homes


Cocktail hour:

I hope you found the tour helpful. If you have a question or just want to chat, drop me a line at hello@ellieandco.co.uk and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
