Dating from the 16th century
Overlooking our grounds are two beautiful restored barns, The Tudor and The Granary. They can be hired separately, with access to the grounds, or taken together for exclusive use of the entire estate for your wedding.
Both barns are set amongst our 70 acres of scenic farmland and enjoy stunning views of the South Downs. Within, they are tastefully decorated and can be easily adjusted to suit your theme. Guests can easily stroll in and out, exploring the meadows and woods at their leisure, enjoying a drink on the patio areas under the stars or taking part in the festivities inside.
As well as providing the perfect venue to hold your reception, we are also licensed to hold civil partnership and wedding ceremonies for up to 180 of your guests.
Or if you would prefer to hold the ceremony elsewhere, with the reception at Blackstock Farm, we are conveniently located close to several historic churches and can happily make recommendations and help arrange transport to and from the venues.
If you have any special requirements for your ceremony, then let us know. We will endeavour to accommodate any wish that you may have to make your ceremony completely personal to you.
Should you wish, you can have exclusive use of both restored barns, the children’s play barn and the grounds for a magical wedding day.
Along with use of both The Tudor and The Granary barns, your guests and wedding party will have exclusive use of all of our grounds from 11am on the big day, with access from 8am. The only people on our 70 acres of beautiful estate will be your family, your friends and our staff! Guests can idly explore the grounds, enjoy the wedding courtyards and patios, and try to spot some of our free-roaming wildlife. Any children present will be able to expend some energy in our fantastic indoor soft play barn.
Our wedding planning staff, caterers and owners will be on hand to support you from the day you first view the venue. We will provide you with detailed timelines covering what you need to do and when, and will be happy to offer advice when it comes to booking transport, music, or a separate ceremony venue if preferred.
You will have one-on-one meetings with our triple rosette head chef, Marco Manner, to decide what you’d like included in your menus to suit your taste and budget.
You’ll also be able to call or email us at any time with any questions or concerns, and be sure you’ll receive a prompt reply.
To get married at Blackstock you will need to arrange a Registrar. Both of our barns are licensed for marriage ceremonies. We work closely with Eastbourne Registry Office with whom you will need to book your registrar.

"We booked our wedding at Blackstock Country Estate in 2014. From the moment we booked with Paul we were really looked after. Any questions we had were answer straight away and I had constant email contact/support with Rebecca and Emma who were fantastic. Our wedding day was 3rd December 2016 and it was absolutely beautiful the venue was even more stunning than we had imagined. The moment we walked into Blackstock Country Estate we were really taken care of, Simon was fantastic he helped keep me calm and ensured the entire day ran smoothly nothing was too much trouble, he really was great and I'm so glad we had him looking after us. The food was gorgeous even now when we talk about the wedding people comment on the food especially the dessert which was warm salted caramel fondant it was gorgeous a definite highlight for all our guests. We couldn't recommend Blackstock country estate enough to other couples looking for the perfect venue and wedding day. Our wedding was everything we had dreamed of and more thank you to all the fantastic staff at Blackstock Country Estate who made our day extra special." Sam, December 2016
