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.

After visiting a few venues to be marched around and told how amazing they were and they have limited availability but might be able to fit us in, Blackstock was an absolute breath of fresh air.
