Hill Top Cottage is situated in the hamlet of Chalbury Hill, a small rural community, about 5 miles to north of Wimborne Minster.
Originally built in the 1960s, Hill Top Cottage has been substantially extended on a couple of occasions since it was built. The property now offers spacious living accommodation on one level extending to about 1500 square feet.
