Blashford is a small village situated in the New Forest National Park in Hampshire, England. Its nearest town is Ringwood, which lies approximately 1 mile (1.5 km) south from the village.

Near the village, in the Avon Valley on the western edge of the New Forest, is the Blashford Lakes Nature Reserve, created by the quarrying of sand and gravel. The 490 acres (200 ha) wildlife reserve is managed by the Wildlife Trust in partnership with the New Forest District Council and landowners Wessex Water and Bournemouth and West Hampshire Water. Blashford Lakes is an internationally important site for thousands of wildfowl.[1]
