Ower is a hamlet in the New Forest district of Hampshire, England. Its nearest towns are Totton – approximately 2.5 miles (4.0 km) to the southeast, and Romsey – approximately 3.5 miles (5.6 km) to the north-east.

Ower lies on the A36 road northwest of Totton. It lies mostly within the civil parish of Copythorne (where the majority of the population was included),[1] although buildings on the east side of the road are in the civil parish of Netley Marsh.[2] It is, however, somewhat cut off from these two parishes by the M27 motorway which passes immediately to the south of the hamlet.

There are two pubs in Ower, called The Mortimer Arms,[3] and The Vine Inn. It also is where the theme park Paultons Park is situated.[4]
