Hllltop is situated in North Dorset close to the Somerset and Wiltshire borders equidistant from the towns of Gillingham, Shaftesbury and Sturminster Newton, in a quiet yet accessable rural location just south of the A30, Shaftesbury to Sherborne Road.


A selection of delicious home-made cakes, tea or coffee, will be on offer every open day for you to enjoy in the garden or conservatory.


Regrettably the garden is unsuitable for wheelchairs.

We look forward to seeing you this coming summer.
