If a country escape wedding in a beautiful barn is your idea of true romance, Blackstock is perfect for you.
Birthday parties to AGMs. We can provide a truly unique venue for your event, conference or celebration.
Our catering partners, Fine Foods Catering, can create a completely customised menu to suit your taste and budget.
Take a stroll around our grounds on a Sunday morning and follow it up with a hearty warming breakfast or brunch.
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.
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.
Picture your special day in one of our restored barns, both of which offer unique charm and character. Guests can step outside on the patio for a drink, or even wander our beautiful grounds at their leisure. We also have excellent modern facilities, despite our rural location.
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.
"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
"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
"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
"A fantastic place to get married! A great team that made the day very special" Wesley, December 2016
"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
"I cannot begin to explain how perfect our wedding was on 22 May 2017. I wouldn't have changed a single thing and you guys made it all happen. Nothing was too much trouble and it all looked so effortless on your part. We can't thank Simon (aka The Wedding Ninja) and Emma enough for all their hard work. Utterly professional but totally approachable. I would recommend Blackstock to every single engaged couple I see!" Jo Baxter, May 2017
"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
"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
"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
"Wow what a wonderful place this is for a wedding! Just had my step daughters day there and was blown away with the setting and views, the barns and gardens are gorgeous, the play areas and animals were such a bonus for the kids. The staff can't do enough for you and went out of their way to get whatever we asked for. The wedding cottage has to be the best way you could spend your wedding night after a day here!!!" Paula, August 2016
