Frogmore is a small suburban village in the north east of the civil parish of Yateley in the English county of Hampshire.

It adjoins Darby Green and lies between the towns of Yateley and Blackwater, and lies 32 miles (51 km) west-south-west of London. The county borders of both Berkshire (Bracknell Forest) and Surrey (Surrey Heath) are approximately one mile away.

The village, part of the Frogmore & Darby Green ward, is under the administrative jurisdiction of Yateley Town Council whilst neighbouring areas fall within the auspices of Blackwater and Hawley Town Council. Frogmore is often considered as a suburban village of both towns by local residents, though is more often regarded as a subvillage of Blackwater.

Frogmore, Darby Green and Blackwater form a mixed community of both affluent and low-income residents; it has a small ex-Romany population.


Frogmore has a large, purpose-built village hall (built in 2001, replacing an earlier one), a large village green, a modern medical surgery, a primary school, a public house ('The Bell Inn'), a modern church and a small shopping parade. An older church existed in nearby Darby Green but burned down in the 1980s.

Frogmore's Post Office was permanently closed in 2004.

Frogmore Community College is situated on the south-eastern edge of Yateley and includes a sports and leisure complex.
