Our two restored barns and 70 acres of peaceful estate provide a wonderful setting for all kinds of private events and celebrations.
Combining classic countryside aesthetics with outstanding modern facilities, Blackstock Country Estate offers something pretty unique. Each of our barns can take up to 200 guests, and can be hired separately or together. Our grounds are full of easy paths and walking routes which offer a great way for your guests to get a bit of fresh air.
We partner with Fine Foods Catering to provide delicious bespoke food and drink for all occasions. We can do finger food, BBQs and hog roasts, and even full five course meals. We’ll work with you to create a bespoke menu, or you can choose from one of our pre-set options.
We can assist you with seating plans and themed decorations, and can also help you source and set up audio-visual equipment.
We’re easily reached by road or rail – Polegate train station is just a ten-minute taxi ride away, and we can recommend a few local hotels and B&Bs should any guests wish to stay.
Every party is individually priced according to your budget, number of guests, day of the week and time of the year. Please contact us for a competitive quote.
The Tudor Barn is a beautiful piece of restored rural history. It enjoys expansive views over our 70 acre estate and has excellent facilities within. From its magnificent chandeliers made from antique cartwheels, to its graceful oak beams, it feels rustic yet modern.
The barn is 500 years old, but comes complete with an excellent bar and modern furnishings that do not sacrifice its ancient character.

"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
"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
"I would like to say thank you to you all for the way you made us feel most welcome last week at our 45th Anniversary. The room looked very nice when we arrived and all of the staff were most helpful. The meal was excellent – my only criticism would be that the portions were too large! I am sure that some other people would disagree with that! You have all, it seems to me, have leant over backwards to make sure that the evening went with a swing and at all my visits to you over the last months you have all been very helpful." Judith, April 2017
"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
"We got married at Blackstock on the 15th October and would like to say thankyou to everyone involved. We had nothing but amazing service from all the team from the day we booked it all the way through to the end of our day and the next day as we had family and friends join us for breakfast too. There is nothing I would change.... the venue was stunning, the food was amazing and so much of it no-one went hungry. A special thankyou to Rebecca and Simon for all the work they did with us in planning and the actual day you were fantastic. Thankyou again to all the team at Blackstock x" Shari, October 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
"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
"A fantastic place to get married! A great team that made the day very special" Wesley, December 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
"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
