We also have Martin Down only moments away, ideal for long walks, bird watching etc.There is a wealth of cultural and leisure activities. Whether you are looking for energetic pursuits such as horse riding or cycling, or more sedate opportunities such as walking, sightseeing, there are a myriad of choices.Nearby towns and villages of interest include; Romsey, Beaulieu & Lyndhurst. Bournemouth and Salisbury are also only a short drive away.Damerham is a location of notable Neolithic and Bronze Age barrows, and was an important Anglo-Saxon manor mentioned in the will of Alfred the Great.

Getting around
Damerham is situated in a lovely village on the edge of the New Forest with lots of lovely walks but as we are not on a bus route a car is a must if you want to discover further afield.
