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 cosy 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.
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.
Picture your special day in one of our restored barns, both of which offer unique charm and character. Guests can step outside on the patio for a drink, or even wander our beautiful grounds at their leisure. We also have excellent modern facilities, despite our rural location.
Every Sunday our café and grounds are open to all, for an entry fee of just £1 (or free for children under 1). The grounds are a wonderful place for a morning stroll, with easy paths throughout.

"This venue is truly welcoming and beautiful! 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. From the flexibility with the day and time we could visit, the fabulous afternoon tea provided, the genuine interest in us and warm welcome from all staff members we knew this was the perfect venue for us. Since booking the service has continued to be fabulous, they are keeping us informed, helping us arrange key items and we feel completely relaxed knowing the high level of support provided. We cannot wait for our wedding at Blackstock next May. Thank you Blackstock team for everything so far!" Gemma and Jake, October 2017
