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

"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

"We just wanted to say the biggest thank you to all the staff at Blackstock for all of your help and providing us with the most perfect wedding day that was everything we could of hoped and dreamed of and more. We really did have the most incredible day and you both and your team really had thought of everything to help ensure our day went so smoothly and all to plan. It was the best wedding food, an amazing venue, lovely professional staff and every detail was incredible and we couldn't agree more." Sophie and Joe, April 2017

"Myself and my husband Robert got married here on the 9th of September this year... We had the most amazing day! And it wouldn't have been as amazing without all the lovely friendly staff who helped everything go so smoothly! If you want a wedding venue where you feel it's your own place for the day then this is the venue for you. All of our wedding guests have commented on what a beautiful venue it is and how it had everything you could wish for. Thank you all for making our day so special xx" Leanna, October 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

"The venue itself was wonderful and perfect for a wedding that has to accommodate for so many different needs including children, so to have a purpose built indoor play area was great for younger guests and parents alike. The staff were a truly wonderful team. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone considering getting married. I think it was great value for money. Finally thank you to all of the team involved in making this a truly wonderful day. Yours sincerely Paul Dale." Mr D, September 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

"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 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

"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

"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
