Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This property is a boutique b&b and cosy restaurant which is named after John Keats, an English Romantic poet, who stayed at the then named Eglatine Cottage in the summer of 1819 and wrote some of his poems at this very property.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a buyer looking for a commercial interest. The downstairs currently runs as a 24-cover restaurant, with an A3 license, whilst the upstairs is a luxury seven-bedroom B&B.

The position of the business within the popular Old Village of Shanklin is superb, offering immediate access to the pretty thatched buildings, theatre, attractive park, coastal walks and delightful sandy beach.

The business has been totally renovated by the current owners and has already established itself with a repeat and loyal clientele. The restaurant benefits from a regular trade of theatre goers, with the theatre being just round the corner, locals who enjoy themed foodie evenings, B&B residents and tourists alike.

The ground floor also has a cosy snug room designed to have a number of uses, there is a large family kitchen, a large fully equipped commercial kitchen and two still rooms. The restaurant itself is 2 tiered and has been beautifully decorated but could equally have other commercial uses.

The B&B accommodation, accessed from a separate entrance hallway, has been upgraded to a high standard. The themed luxury bedrooms offer high ceilings, character features and smart en-suite facilities. There is an opulent 2-bedroom family apartment to the rear of the building featuring vaulted ceiling, a beautiful bathroom suite and benefiting from a garden access. This suite could be used as part of the business or as owners’ accommodation.

Along with its location and its superb renovation, this property offers a real opportunity for an investor to walk into an already successful business which is ready to trade.

What the Owner says:


We fell in love with this property as the property oozed charm and history.

We then spent 9 months lovingly refurbishing the building and unearthing beautiful stone fireplaces, wonderful nooks and crannies and we even found signatures from over 200 years ago!

We kept the old-world charm of the bedrooms by restoring the sash windows whilst modernising the bathrooms and bringing the whole building up to the 21st century.

The property has recently been shown on Channel’s 4 ‘Four in a bed’ programme and has appeared in several publications. In addition, both the B&B and restaurant feature highly on Trip Advisor whilst the B&B boasts a 9.7 average on the booking.com ranking.
