About ian robertson
I am a retired civil servant, my wife is German and we have three grown up children. Our own home is in Chandler's Ford, Hants, a 75 minute drive from Swanage. We have a house manager to clean the house after each tenancy and to deal with any matters requiring immediate action (including the hiring out of bed linen and towels.)

Why ian robertson chose Swanage
We love the Isle of Purbeck for its scenery, cliff walks and pleasant, easy going people, many of whom have come to live there from other parts of the UK.
What makes this House unique
A particularly pleasant feature is its south facing garden. Hedging screens it partially from the overview of houses at the top of the Close (this marks the boundary of the estate - the open fields beyond are visible from the upstairs).

Comfortable holiday home in a good location
Location was great, nice and quiet yet easy walk to town and beach. I was slightly concerned about the hill hack up after reading some reviews but it wasn't a problem for us at all (living in Derbyshire we're used to much steeper hills than this!). We had 2 young children with us and could still walk back in around 20 minutes.
The property itself has everything you need and we took advantage of the cot and high chair. We paid extra for bed linen and towels which was worthwhile and one less thing for us to worry about. Cost was £20 for 1 double, 1 single and towels for all. If I was being fussy I'd say that the house is getting to an age where it needs a little bit of tlc but it is still very good value for money so can't complain.
It suited us with having a separate room for the cot so baby could have her own room.
The owner was very good with communication which made everything go smoothly.
Clean tidy and comfortable
Comfortable, Convenient, Clean & Practical
Absolutely peaceful & comfortable. Ian (the owner) and Anja (the property caretaker) were extremely helpful from start to finish. Highly recommended & we will come back. Thank you
Very handy for us
A lovely clean property
Great place to stay for families
The house was well equipped and very comfortable. We’d been given the option of having the beds made up and towels provided for a small addition charge and we did this. Walking into a lovely clean, well presented house with beds made up was perfect. Would highly recommend the house and the owner.
Comfortable home from home
This house is a lovely place to stay and close to the centre of Swanage. Its also a good base for exploring Dorset.
The owners are very approachable and will sort out any problems quickly.
Definitely recommend the place for a relaxing holiday
