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

"...from the time we booked until the day of our wedding we received personal impeccable service from the owners, nothing was too much trouble and all our requests were catered for. The venue itself was beautiful and the service and attention to details on the day was impeccable nothing was too much trouble the food and drink were excellent and we would certainly recommend to others." Deborah, December 2015

"We got married at Blackstock on 8th. The day was absolutely fantastic. Staff went above and beyond and helped make our day run smoothly. Everybody who came to our day as been raving about all of it, especially the food! A very big thank you to you all. The new Mr and Mrs Grosvenor xxx" Emma, October 2016

"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 were let down by our other wedding reception venue at very short notice and we had less than a month to find an alternative who could cater for our every need. Paul and the team from the start couldn’t be more than accommodating, proactive and through it all. We could not fault anything and everything promised was guaranteed and delivered. It was just perfect. I have since recommended to family and friends." Guiseppe, December 2015

"My eldest daughter and my now "son in law" got married at Blackstock. Absolutely exceptional venue with fantastically friendly staff and the organisation, logistics and planning were first class. The whole team there will give 100% effort to make sure the day is as memorable as it should be. Simon who managed the day for us was professional, caring, and did everything he promised with a smile and with a competence and confidence that was reassuring. Thank you." Steve, February 2017

"Thank you to all the staff that made our wedding so flawless, every one of our guests fell in love with the venue, commented on how lovely the food was and said it was the best wedding they had been to...... As the Bride and Groom we had the perfect day. It was worth every penny." Kieron, September 2016

"Everyone who came to our wedding commented on how amazing the venue was - the barn, the views, the food - all loved unanimously! We couldn't have hoped for a better day!" Colin, December 2015

"AMAZING. We got married here on Thursday 23rd June 2016 and it was fantastic. The staff are so friendly and helpful and always willing to lend a hand whenever they can. The two barns are beautiful and all our family and friends who attended the day and evening loved the setting. The food was outstanding. It was a day that me and my wife will never forget and it couldn't of gone any better. Anyone looking for a fantastic venue, run by excellent staff, look no further. Truly fantastic. Thank you for making our dream wedding come true." Phil, June 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

"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
