About this location
The Hampshire region
Hampshire is the largest county in South East England and the third largest shire county in the United Kingdom despite losing more land than any other English county during the Local Government Act 1972 boundary changes.
Hampshire's tourist attractions include many seaside resorts, the motor museum at Beaulieu, with national parks in both New Forest and the South Downs. Hampshire has a long maritime history and two of England's largest ports, Portsmouth and Southampton, lie on its coast. The county is famed as home of such writers as Jane Austen and Charles Dickens, as well as the birthplace of engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel.
Damerham and Fordingbridge sit just on the edge of the New Forest National Park an area of outstanding natural beauty and a conservation area, where horses, cattle and pigs are left to roam freely. 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.
By the time of the Domesday Book of 1086, Damerham was a major settlement in the possession of Glastonbury Abbey.
You can explore the local area on foot and stop at the Compass for a drink or lunch.. We will supply you with an information pack with suggested walks and cycle rides. You are very welcome to bring your own bike and we are happy to safely store them for you.

"Home from home"
I just love this place! It's our second stay in this incredible property and as soon as I walked back through the door, I felt instantly relaxed, and had a big smile on my face.Carol leaves in sp… More
It was so nice to see you both again and lovely to hear about you walk at Bolder Wood to discover the deer sanctuary. I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us this valentine and managed to relax and unwind, just what you need at this time of year.
Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a lovely review and I look forward to seeing you both again on your next visit. Best wishes Carol

"Perfect weekend for some R&R!"
My boyfriend and I have just returned from a lovely stay at Greenbanks whilst celebrating my birthday. As soon as we got there we were greeted with a warm welcome from Carol, she showed us around the apartment which was warm, cosy and immaculately presented, we couldn't have asked for anything better. Also the small touches such as fresh eggs, milk and chocolates on the bedside table were very much appreciated.
The apartment is well equipped with everything you would need for a short stay, the big bath was also wonderful for a nice soak. It was a shame that we couldn't get much use of the large balcony as the weather was too cold to sit outside, the surroundings are beautiful and sipping a glass of wine on a summers evening would be perfect.
The only small problem we had was finding something to do around the local area at this time of the year, mostly our own fault as we didn't really take this into consideration when planning our stay. However after having a look on Trip Advisor we found an Owl and Reptile Sanctuary about a 30min drive away which was an enjoyable day out.
Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Greenbanks, we wanted a weekend to relax and unwind in a comfortable, peaceful environment and that's exactly what we got! We would love to return in the summer to make the most of what the New Forest has to offer.
Thank you again :-)
I am glad to hear you had a nice relaxing stay at Greenbanks.
Please feel free to ask for ideas of what to do if you haven't planned anything, there are always lots of walks and cycle rides around our village and in the New Forest for you to enjoy just wrap up warm. Walking in the forest at this time of year can be ideal for seeing the dear, donkeys, cattle and ponies all roaming about and of course there are lots of lovely pubs and restaurants around for a nice warming drink or a meal afterwards.
Thank you for taking the time to right your review and so quickly it was very kind of you. I look forward to welcoming you again one day.
I am glad you had an enjoyable and relaxing birthday.
Best wishes to you both. Carol

"Peace and Tranquility"
Absolutely lovely location with fantastic local walks and greenery all around. The fresh eggs were divine for breakfast. We really welcomed the peace and quiet. Lovely accommodation, enormous bath which was a real bonus and the efficient heating made it really warm and cosy. We look forward to visiting again.
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, I am glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. There is nothing to beat freshly laid eggs for breakfast and the girls always enjoy meeting all our guests.
You are more than welcome to come back and stay again....hopefully without a cold next time! hope you are feeling better. Looking forward to meeting you again.

I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your Christmas with us at Greenbanks, I hoped the mince pies and mulled wine would add to the atmosphere as you decorated your lovely Christmas tree.
We would have liked to have put a king size bed in the bedroom but unfortunately space would not allow.
Thank you for taking the time to leave us your review. I hope you have a great new year and I look forward to welcoming you back

"Super relaxing stay near New Forest"
We booked two nights at Greenbanks for a relaxing weekend away. The accommodation itself was spotless and had a very homely, cosy feeling which was just what we were after. The place is split level with the kitchen on the lower floor, spacious bedroom with en suite and large lounge and balcony. Really couldn't have asked for anything more, a lovely place to go recharge your batteries, highly recommended.
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and managed to unwind. It was really nice to meet you both. Thank you once again Carol

"Home away from home"
We stayed at Greenbanks on Halloween weekend and had a wonderful weekend. The annex is pristine and Carol is a welcome host with thoughtful touches. Including milk in the fridge, fresh eggs from the hen and tea and coffee facilities all there on arrival.
Everything is modern and beautifully presented. The bed is so comfortable and the bath and shower facilities are what you might expect at a luxurious hotel! We were lucky to have the warmest Halloween ever on our trip so got to enjoy the balcony in the evening with the local fireworks display in perfect view.
The local pub is within a five minute walk and serves great food. New Forest landscape is within a 20 minute drive and the closest town Fordingbridge only about . I'd highly recommend for couples looking for cosy weekend away!
You certainly had a full stay with pumpkin lanterns on the balcony for Halloween and watching fire works the following evening, almost your own private show. I am glad you had a nice relaxing stay. Thank you so much for leaving us a wonderful review and bringing to our attention the light problem with the blind in the bedroom. The curtains have now been adjusted to pull fully, not just for decoration, so you will be able to lay in without the light waking you up.
Thank you once again Carol

"Great location, excellent quality accommodation"
The accommodation was excellent, all looked brand new and very clean. The equipment was equally new and everything we needed was there. The little extras like the toothbrushes, shampoo, and the milk and eggs made a big difference. The balcony has great views, overlooking fields and horses, and was well used to enjoy a drink and the peace and quiet. Thoroughly recommended!
Thank you for your kind review. It is really peaceful on the balcony, you can sit, relax and let the world go by, perfect to unwind and enjoy the lovely weather, I am glad you enjoyed your stay.
