Hill Holme was the local historian Dorothy Colvilles house in Dixons Hill Road, Welham Green.

I do have in the collection (Images of North Mymms) some images of Dixons Hill Close (as it is now) but unsure what the number of Hillholme House is,

Hill Holme (2 words) is still there and is actually a bungalow about halfway down on the right what is now Dixons Hill Close (No. 33).
Have a look on Google Street View!

Its possible that Hillholme House was in fact the house (now converted to a pair of semis) next to the dental surgery in Dixons Hill Road, it appears as such on the 1911 census, possibly becoming Twysdens House in the 30's hence the name Twysdens terrace which was built on the land at the rear.

Hope this is of interest
