Gournay Court in the parish of West Harptree, Somerset, is a country house built circa 1600. The house, along with the manor of West Harptree, was owned by the Duchy of Cornwall. During World War I it became a hospital. In 1928 it was bought by Sir Edward Geoffrey Hippisley-Cox. It is now the residence of the local Member of Parliament Jacob Rees-Mogg and his family.
The house is built of red sandstone and, along with a barn in the grounds and its gates and railings is now a listed building.
