Dedicated Service In A Special Rural Venue

Our two restored barns and 70 acres of peaceful estate provide a wonderful setting for all kinds of private events and celebrations.

Combining classic countryside aesthetics with outstanding modern facilities, Blackstock Country Estate offers something pretty unique. Each of our barns can take up to 200 guests, and can be hired separately or together. Our grounds are full of easy paths and walking routes which offer a great way for your guests to get a bit of fresh air.

We partner with Fine Foods Catering to provide delicious bespoke food and drink for all occasions. We can do finger food, BBQs and hog roasts, and even full five course meals. We’ll work with you to create a bespoke menu, or you can choose from one of our pre-set options.

We can assist you with seating plans and themed decorations, and can also help you source and set up audio-visual equipment.

We’re easily reached by road or rail – Polegate train station is just a ten-minute taxi ride away, and we can recommend a few local hotels and B&Bs should any guests wish to stay.

Every party is individually priced according to your budget, number of guests, day of the week and time of the year. Please contact us for a competitive quote.

The Tudor Barn

The Tudor Barn is a beautiful piece of restored rural history. It enjoys expansive views over our 70 acre estate and has excellent facilities within. From its magnificent chandeliers made from antique cartwheels, to its graceful oak beams, it feels rustic yet modern.

The barn is 500 years old, but comes complete with an excellent bar and modern furnishings that do not sacrifice its ancient character.

Some kind words

"Went here recently for a wedding and this place is totally beautiful, inside and out. Food here was also a 10/10 lots of beautiful photo opportunities and the views are incredible." Stewart Holter, Autumn 2023

"Myself and my wife got married there this October. The staff were amazing. From the first visit to the end of the night. Whenever we had questions or concerns, we would email them. And within a day or so we had our answer. The food. Ohh my good god the food was fantastic. I cannot overstate this. The food is AMAZING. They was very lenient with us as we gave the final number only 4 weeks before the day. But this is because we have just had a baby. With out their help it wouldn’t have been the day we dreamed of." Terry White, October 2023

"We had our wedding day at Blackstock on the 24th February 2024. I don’t know where to begin! We had the most perfect day from start to finish. The whole day ran so smoothly, the staff are so friendly and attentive. Our wedding co-ordinator Rebecca was so helpful, she assisted us right from when we booked to the day, she was with us for the whole day and made sure everything was exactly as we wanted it. We decided on BBQ food for our meal - this was amazing and all of us were stuffed! For our evening reception we had the venue close to full capacity, the bar staff were brilliant and kept up with all the orders! We have had so many compliments on how beautiful and perfect our day was, we couldn’t have asked for a better venue. Thank you to all at Blackstock!" Gemma Collinson, February 2024

"We had our wedding day at Blackstock on 30th March 2024 and it was just perfect. The staff were so helpful in ensuring the day ran so smoothly. Guests commented that the food was the best they’d ever had at a wedding and loved the social able to few to venue. Rose was incredible at coordinating our day and made us feel at ease through the whole process. It’s such a stunning venue and we’re so grateful to the whole team for helping to make it the day of our dreams." Laura Kane, March 2024

"Dear Rose, I’m hoping this email reaches you as I don’t have an email address for you directly. I’m sure Sophie and Dan will be in touch when they’re back from their few days away, but I just wanted to take this opportunity to drop you a quick line. We would be really grateful if you could pass on our thanks to all your staff that were involved in making Sophie and Dan’s day yesterday so wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble for anyone and they all really went above and beyond to make the day so special and memorable. Also, a huge thank you to you as you really couldn’t have done any more. I really hope that at some point somebody will have another wedding at Blackstock so that we can return, probably best that it’s someone we know as I believe turning up at random weddings is frowned upon 😂 Once again, please convey our thanks to everyone, some who to me seem to be very young, but are so professional and a credit to the business. " Sandra and Bob (Sophie’s Mum and Dad), Spring 2024

"Firstly, I cannot thank you enough. Our day was everything we hoped it would be and SO much more. Thank you for being you and for all the support throughout. It was nothing short of incredible, the entire journey. Secondly, the staff at Blackstock are all absolutely incredible. Everyone was extremely kind, helpful and super supportive to ensure the day ran as smoothly as possible. Please do thank everyone on our behalf. " Sophie & Daniel Ball , Spring 2024

"‘We really cannot recommend Blackstock Country Estate highly enough after hosting our wedding at the venue in September 2021. From the first time we visited Blackstock we knew it was the venue for us with their relaxed and professional approach immediately putting us at ease when making such a big decision. From the start, Blackstock worked with us to accommodate our every wish, from bespoke menu choices and luxury accommodation to table plans and helping us to organise a sunset photo shoot. Everything felt so personal and dedicated to us, with Betty in particular doing everything in her power to make our day run as smoothly as possible. It was extremely clear to us from the beginning that Blackstock Estate specialise in hosting weddings. From providing a golf buggy to drive us around the grounds for photographs, to helping us move our cards and presents into our accommodation at the end of the night, nothing was too much trouble. A significant proportion of our guests informed us that Blackstock had provided ‘the best wedding food’ they had ever eaten, to which we also agree! With 110 guests in attendance we were astonished to see and hear that every single meal was served to perfection. We really did have the most perfect day and the wonderful, polite, organised, friendly staff at Blackstock had a huge part to play in the day’s success. We truly had the most incredible wedding and really cannot praise Blackstock highly enough. Thank you to the whole team for taking care of every detail and helping us to enjoy the best day of our lives’ X " Amy & Robert, September 2021

"We just wanted to pass on a huge thanks to everyone at Blackstock that helped make our party a day to remember. Our guests were delighted with everything from the venue to the catering, we’ve had so much nice feedback. Luigi and the rest of the team were fabulous, I didn’t realise we were going to have so many people looking after us. So, once again a big thank you for making our day truly one to remember." Alan & Carolyn, October 2019

"To all the fantastic team at Blackstock! We had the most amazing day, full of love, laughter & happiness. It went so smoothly, so all we had to do on the day was enjoy it and immerse ourselves in the celebration of our marriage. We can't thank you all enough for your hard work and can't fault the staff at all. The food was wonderful and all our guests had the best time. We felt very special and staying over extended that feeling very much. The Goat Shed was a perfect place to end our magical day." Martin & Tina, September 2019

"Having such a big wedding the food was the most expensive part for us and it took a while to get our heads around. Having been to weddings before and seeing the portions it all felt pretty disheartening. When the food came out on the day we could not believe that they were actually very generous portions and then upon trying the food we were blown away. The food was all delicious and guests throughout the day and since have said it was some of the best food they have ever had at a wedding and we agree very much with this. People also commented on how quickly it was served and how hot the food was considering the number of guests. All the waitresses and waiters were great and happy to help. So a massive thank you to the chef and all involved in serving the food, it most definitely was worth the money!" Kirsty & Craig, August 2019
