Damerham is a small downland village on the edge of the New Forest, Cranborne Chase and the Martin Downs. All of these areas are great for walkers, cyclists and nature lovers. This diverse landscape offers areas of rolling grassland, ancient woodlands, and chalk river valleys.


The area boasts some of the finest stillwater trout fishing in the country, in addition to shooting, riding and other country pursuits. Perfect for hospitality or day parties.

Salisbury is only 9 miles away, with its stunning cathedral and charming shops. Other attractions such as the Jurassic Coast and Stonehenge are within striking distance.
