Turmer is a small hamlet near Harbridge in Hampshire, England. It lies within the civil parish of Ellingham, Harbridge and Ibsley.

Turmer is unusual for a settlement in England. No paved roads reach the hamlet, and traditional farming techniques, including heavy horses, are still used there. It seems to be "a village almost lost in time".[1] The hamlet is part of a conservation area, and includes an 18th-century farm, a 19th-century school, built by the Earl of Normanton, and thatched cottages, all grouped around a pond.[1]

The Avon Valley Path passes through the hamlet.
