The Tudor Barn has been imaginatively developed by restoring a fine 500 year old Sussex Barn, incorporating ancient traditional frames and structures with modern finishings and facilities. It has a rustic, yet modern feel and is maintained at an exceptionally high standard.
The Tudor Barn features a wealth of ancient oak structural timbers, arching over a surprisingly expansive space which provides room for dining, dancing and all sorts of entertainment. It also has an attractive, fully refurbished minstrel’s gallery above the bar, a highly unusual and interesting feature. The bar is very large and oak finished, serving a range of beers, spirits and wines.
Large chandeliers, made from antique cartwheels, provide romantic lighting and add to the rustic ambience, but additional lighting (both white and coloured) can be added easily to suit any theme.
Before the wedding breakfast, welcome drinks & canapés can be served in the courtyard or on the terrace amid unspoiled views of the Cuckmere valley. This area is very idyllic, and is a favourite spot for wedding photos with horses and llamas roaming in the background.
The Tudor barn can be hired on its own, or alongside The Granary for exclusive use of the grounds.
"So this will be my third event at Blackstock, a friends wedding this time last year, a comedy night (brilliant) and my daughters wedding. The staff are so amazing and the food is the best. Paul, his wife and mother are so welcoming, and Rebacca (not Rachel) is brilliant. I love how you can set up what you want (some guidelines) but generally it makes it so personal. There are people to hand if you're not sure and lots of wedding fairs. We had another amazing time at the farm/barn Thanks everyone" Jo, March 2016
"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
"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
"Myself and my husband Robert got married here on the 9th of September this year... We had the most amazing day! And it wouldn't have been as amazing without all the lovely friendly staff who helped everything go so smoothly! If you want a wedding venue where you feel it's your own place for the day then this is the venue for you. All of our wedding guests have commented on what a beautiful venue it is and how it had everything you could wish for. Thank you all for making our day so special xx" Leanna, October 2016
"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
"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
"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
"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
"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
"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
