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.

Some kind words

"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

"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

"The wedding of my daughter and her husband took place at Blackstock in March 2016. It was an absolutely fabulous day. All staff were wonderfully helpful and pleasant. It seemed a joy to them to do all they could to ensure a super happy day. I do hope that Blackstock appreciate what amazing staff they have! It is so important to a successful and happy occasion. The venue, facilities, food, the Bridal suite - all beyond our expectations. I would highly recommend. Still smiling!" Maureen, March 2016

"Blackstock Estate was the most wonderful setting for our wedding. It catered for everything we needed, including the activities for children which was so important for us having so many guests with children. The day went smoothly and we were put at ease by the team. The food was outstanding and everybody commented that it was some of the best food they had ever tasted at a wedding. Both barns were beautiful in their own right and we didn't feel we needed much more decoration. A truly magical day." EH, December 2015

"...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

"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

"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

"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

"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
