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 cosy 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.

Some kind words

"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

"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

"Thank you again for looking after us so well last Thursday! The day flew by but we loved every minute of it! The weather was kind to us and showed blackstock off in its full glory! It's such a beautiful place and we are so happy to have got married there! You both were amazing with some difficult guests and last minute madness which we both really appreciate!" Sarah and Paul, April 2017

"Paul helped us think about the day that we wanted to create for ourselves, rather than having to stick with a standard package, which a lot of other venues were pushing...our whole day felt personalised and unique. We hired both of the barns for our wedding, which looked absolutely stunning and accommodated our 100 guests perfectly. The staff were all fantastic, and really went above and beyond to help us and our guests have a brilliant day...and we feel lucky to have had it at this wonderful venue." Katie, March 2016

"Excellent venue for wedding or parties, beautiful surroundings and gardens which are perfect for photographs. Service is efficient and friendly and the wedding service was very well conducted but nevertheless remained relaxed and informal creating a friendly and intimate atmosphere. Highly recommended for any event." Karen, August 2016

"Myself and my husband got married here yesterday and it was the most amazing day I could have ever dreamed of. Simon was fantastic and helped make the day. His attention to detail and polite manner put me at ease. I would recommend the venue to everyone. The kids loved the play area and we got so many comments about how it was so family friendly and a gorgeous venue in a picturesque setting. Everyone loved the food, it was amazing with generous portions and fantastic combinations of flavours. Thank you for an amazing day which we will never forget " Lisa, November 2016

"What a fantastic day had by each and every one of us! Every member of staff are a credit to your team!" Mrs E 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 on 12 March 2016, after meeting Paul at a wedding fair at Bluewater shopping centre. Right from the start they were very friendly and welcoming and made us feel much more at ease than any other venue we viewed. They helped us think about the day that we wanted to create for ourselves, rather than having to stick with a standard package, which a lot of other venues were pushing. We hired both of the barns for our wedding, which looked absolutely stunning and accommodated our 100 guests perfectly. The staff were all fantastic, and all really went above and beyond to help us and our guests have a brilliant day - we have had so much feedback from our guests about how friendly and helpful the staff were. It was a perfect day and we feel lucky to have had it at this wonderful venue." Katie, April 2016

"To all the staff at Blackstock, Thank you so much for everything you did to make our day go smoothly, from the point of the first wedding showcase to the end of our day every single member of your team have been exceptional. You all went out of your way to make our day special and we couldn't recommend you enough! Thank you again." Luke and Francesca, February 2017
