Keats Cottage is a boutique accommodation offering a home from home feel and a highly ranked restaurant using locally sourced produce. Keats Cottage is located at the top of the Old Village in Shanklin, Isle of Wight, overlooking the theatre and within a 5 minute walk of the sea. The house was named after John Keats, an English Romantic poet who stayed at this property in the summer of 1819. All the rooms are equipped with modern amenities and you can experience crisp linen, fluffy towels, homemade biscuits and Nespresso coffee machines as well as first class service. We believe that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and you can enjoy a traditional English breakfast consisting of organic ingredients sourced from nearby farms as well as home-made jams, delicious omelettes, creamy porridge or vitamin packed fruit smoothies to name just a few options! Owners David & Ewa look forward to welcoming you to Keats Cottage.
