Extremely comfortable B & B accommodation for riders and excellent stabling in an American barn for your horses. We are situated on a farm in rural Dorset, between 2 ridges of chalk downland. We are also close to Dorset Showground, with its comprehensive program of events, which is only 15 minutes by lorry.

For the horses

Up to 3 large loose boxes available. Deep barley straw beds. Our own premium horse ley hay or haylage available. Post and rails turnout. Arena with Martin Collins surface may be used by arrangement.

For people

Luxury accommodation of you, 3 bedrooms available, a king size double, twin room or a double. Breakfast is served in the main room with locally sourced ingredients where possible, as well as our own hens’ eggs, homemade yoghurt, jams and marmalade. A packed lunch is available on request. Large comfortable guest sitting room with woodburner in winter or enjoy the garden and terraces in the summer months.

Riding Opportunities

Riding can be local, on the farm and the quiet country lanes and bridleways nearby or a short trailer or lorry drive away are the spectacular downs of Cranborne Chase or the Mere Downs, where you can ride all day on ancient tracks and over the downs and barely cross a road or see another person. Drop down to a country pub for lunch or take a picnic with you.


The best way to find us is to look up Gutchpool Farm on Google.

If you are using the post code SP8 5QP you will be taken to a row of brick houses about half a mile away. From this location, and with the houses on your left, follow the road for about 400 yds, and just before the ‘Road Narrows’ sign take the farm track on your left. We are at the end.
