A truly intimate country venue in beautiful Sussex

Blackstock Country Estate is a beautiful countryside wedding and events venue set in the rolling South Downs of Sussex. We host ceremonies, receptions and events in two tastefully restored barns, surrounded by 70 acres of breathtaking estate. Rustic and rural, yet refined and romantic, we are surrounded by open meadows, bluebell woodland and peaceful lakes. Wild deer can be spotted on the grounds, among other wildlife roaming freely.

All this can be viewed from our two restored barns, one of which dates back to the 16th century, which can be hired together for exclusive use of the estate or hired separately. We are licensed for weddings and civil ceremonies for up to 180 guests, or can recommend some nearby historic churches. For receptions, conferences and parties we have licensed bars, the capacity for live music and can provide top-quality bespoke catering.

Private Functions & Conferences

Our peaceful estate can add a sense of escapism to your occasion, while our licensed bars and in-house catering team can provide a range of drinking and dining options. Whether you’re having a corporate away day, a family party or something in between we can help.

Sunday Café & Grounds

Every Sunday our café and grounds are open to all, for an entry fee of just £1 (or free for children under 2). The grounds are a wonderful place for a morning stroll, with easy paths throughout and all kinds of animal life easy to see, from free-roaming deer to wild brown trout and even llamas.

Some kind words

"We got married at Blackstock on the 15th October and would like to say thankyou to everyone involved. We had nothing but amazing service from all the team from the day we booked it all the way through to the end of our day and the next day as we had family and friends join us for breakfast too. There is nothing I would change.... the venue was stunning, the food was amazing and so much of it no-one went hungry. A special thankyou to Rebecca and Simon for all the work they did with us in planning and the actual day you were fantastic. Thankyou again to all the team at Blackstock x" Shari, October 2016

"To Emma, Simon and all the staff at Blackstock Farm. Thank you so much for giving us the most perfect wedding day. We were really impressed how smoothly it went and all the staff were friendly and accommodating. Our guests all commented on how delicious the food was and how much they enjoyed the unique setting. Maybe we’ll see you in a few years for our anniversary! Best wishes." Alice and James, December 2016

"Dear Simon & Team, I just wanted to write to say a huge 'thank you' for your kindness and simply superb care that you showed to my daughter Phia and her new wife Chan at their wedding. I knew that they both had the most fantastic day - helped in a big way by you and your team. I was so impressed by the professional and quiet efficiency with which you all took care of our every need even down to helping to find my father in law's coat. It is without a doubt that you have all helped to make the day so very special and memorable. Thank you all once again." Suzy, November 2016

"So this will be my third event at Blackstock, a friends wedding this time last year, a comedy night (brilliant) and my daughters wedding. The staff are so amazing and the food is the best. Paul, his wife and mother are so welcoming, and Rebacca (not Rachel) is brilliant. I love how you can set up what you want (some guidelines) but generally it makes it so personal. There are people to hand if you're not sure and lots of wedding fairs. We had another amazing time at the farm/barn Thanks everyone" Jo, March 2016

"My son and daughter in law were married here yesterday. All the staff were excellent - nothing was too much for them - and the venue was absolutely charming!" Mrs D M, February 2017

"Lovely farm venue with great views. We were able to take pictures on the day by the lake and in the woods as well as in the venue itself. Great indoor play area for children, guests can also look round the farm - great that they could do that while we did our photos. In terms of catering, many people told me it was the best quality wedding food they'd ever had." Debbie, December 2015

"We got married at Blackstock Farm on 3rd June 2016 and would like to say a huge thank you to Rebecca, Paul, Lorraine and all the wonderful staff who made our wedding day so magical. From the moment Simon and I walked in, we fell in love with Blackstock and the whole process, from making the booking to the day itself, was so easy. Rebecca was always at the end of an email to answer my countless little questions and was so accommodating with any requests. The day itself ran so smoothly and the food was outstanding. Our only complaint is that it went far too quickly!! We cannot recommend Blackstock highly enough to couples looking for their perfect wedding venue x" Rachel, June 2016

"All you guys done an amazing job making our special day one we will never forget!!! An extra special thanks to Emma and Simon for putting us both at ease!!!" Mr P M, February 2017

"We were very pleased with our selection of Blackstock Farm as our Wedding reception venue, however, it was the feedback from our family and friends that mattered most. ‘The staff were exceptionally well organised, and the balance always seemed to be maintained between being them efficient and attentive whilst also giving guests space to enjoy the day’ - was a one comment from Lizzie’s aunt the day after our Wedding. We genuinely could not have hoped for a better day, or for a better venue." Damien, December 2015

"Beautiful countryside venue with outdoor space and fantastic views. Tudor barn felt very traditional and space available inside and outside was wonderful." Peter, December 2015
