Gorse Farm House is the home of Wendy and her husband Lee, who is a woodcarver / sculptor.

It is a truly peaceful place to stay, nestling amongst the patchwork quilt of fields and oak woods between Sturminster Newton and Bulbarrow Hill.

Lying in the Blackmore Vale, this former farmhouse is within easy reach of many of the attractions of Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire.

It is also prime walking country and lies adjacent to the North Dorset Cycleway.

There is also plentiful parking, some of which is under cover.

Naturally, breakfast is included and is served in the conservatory. Start time is flexible and Full English or Continental is available.

Complimentary WiFi is available throughout.

Rooms are available for £80 or £85 per night for two including breakfast.

This unique home has two guest bedrooms available for your stay, an ensuite double/twin and a double/twin with private bathroom.

Squashed Apple Wood Carving

A stand out feature throughout the house and  garden are Lee’s wood carvings which are extensive and varied. Here is a small example, with many more on his website.
