The property

With its unusual and unique history, Hill Cottage sits in a wonderful position overlooking the delightful hamlet of Hewood on the borders of Dorset and Somerset.

Built of cob, a natural building material, this detached property has connections with the renowned landscape painter Lucien Pissarro who lived here until his death in 1944.

The cottage is inviting and welcoming with its bright, neutrally decorated rooms and you'll love the cosiness that the open fire and wood burning stove bring during the cooler months.

In the summer you'll be eager to sit out and relax in the stylish garden furniture at the top of the terraced gardens with the far reaching views stretching away into the distance.
