This year we are offering a unique opportunity to hire the whole Keats Cottage (or a couple of rooms - whatever is needed!) on a room only basis over Christmas and New Year’s Eve. We have decided to have some much needed family time this year that is why our restaurant is closed. Keats Cottage sleeps up to 14 adults & 2 children (no extra cost for children) and we benefit from a fabulous Shanklin Old Village location.

For details & prices, please visit or Christmas at Keats or New Year’s Eve at Keats pages for further information.
