Netley Marsh is a civil parish in Hampshire, England, close to the town of Totton. It lies within the New Forest District, and the New Forest National Park. It is the alleged site of the battle between an invading Anglo Saxon army, under Cerdic and a British army under Natanleod in the year 508.

Netley Marsh lies to the west of Southampton. The village is on the A336 road from Cadnam to Totton. The parish is bounded by Bartley Water in the south, and River Blackwater in the north. The village of Woodlands is in the south of the parish, and the hamlets of Hillstreet and Ower (chiefly in Copythorne parish) are to the north.

Netley Marsh was one of the civil parishes formed from the parish of Eling when it was abolished in 1894. It was part of New Forest Rural District from 1894 until 1974.
