Just 20 miles away from Blackstock Country Estate lies the stunning historical town of Royal Tunbridge Wells. Royal Tunbridge Wells lies right on the border of East Sussex and West Kent, and shares some absolutely beautiful countryside with us. Some of the loveliest countryside in England, in our view! The town is one of our favourite places in the area. With beautiful architecture, some great shops and restaurants, and some stunning High Weald countryside, there’s not a lot it lacks.
Thanks to our position an easy drive away from Royal Tunbridge Wells, a lot of couples from the area decide to have their weddings with us. We offer a stunning rural venue that is easy for guests to find. See below some testimonials from couples in the Royal Tunbridge Wells area, and at the bottom of this blog you’ll find some helpful directions to the estate.
“Now that things have calmed down on behalf of the newlyweds and myself I just want to say thank you to Gill and the team for the great job you did for Hannah and Drew’s wedding on Saturday. We’ve had so many compliments on the gorgeous venue, the great food, the atmosphere of the place and the way the day ran.
Florin and Sarah worked very hard to ensure everything was as seamless as possible – even when I managed to mislay the key to the 3 bedroom cottage half way through the evening! (luckily my daughter had it as I gather there isn’t another one on-site). Sarah didn’t seem at all ruffled, bless her.
Your security guard (I’m afraid I can’t remember his name) was also great, extremely friendly and couldn’t do enough to help – even bringing a jug of milk to the accommodation – I’m sure that’s not in his job description! I would like to finish though by saying a huge thank you once again. The day itself was fantastic and the staff worked hard to ensure that. If the weather stays good we’ll be bringing little Winry for another visit on a Sunday while the newlyweds are on their Honeymoon.
This venue is truly welcoming and beautiful!” – Hannah and Drew
“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
“Dear all I am so sorry I did not thank you all properly yesterday for the wonderful day you created for my daughter. I think my head was a little cloudy!Everything was exceptional, all your staff were so professional and helpful. The whole of the arrangements, food and the venue itself far exceeded my expectations.
All my guests commented on what a fantastic venue we had chosen. All the children had a whale of a time and that meant relaxed parents.So from me and all my family thank you, thank you, thank you!” – Jenny and Richard
