Firgrove Road, Yateley, GU46 6, Hampshire, United Kingdom
The Hartley Wintney Angling Society oversees and owns Firgrove Manor, a small estate lake in a lovely setting. This spot is surrounded by purple rhododendrons in the summer months, with yellow lilies on the surface of the pristine water.
This is a one-acre lake with 18 swims, perfect for intimate fishing. These waters are estimated to be about 200 years old.
The lake boasts bream, roach, tench, carp, and perch.
Firgrove Manor was a private residential home up until 2004, at which time a development firm converted it into 11 freehold and 10 leasehold properties.
