Tarrant Gunville is a village and civil parish in north Dorset, England, situated at the head of the Tarrant Valley on Cranborne Chase northeast of Blandford Forum. In the 2011 Census the parish recorded a population of 233. The large 13th-century parish church is dedicated to St. Mary, and was completely rebuilt between 1845 and 1845 by the architect Thomas Henry Wyatt. The modern village hall was completed in 2001.

The parish has three round barrows and an unexcavated Iron Age enclosure with a 15' deep ditch, which Pevsner suspects was built in a hurry.
