Blackstock Country Estate is a beautiful countryside wedding and events venue set in the rolling South Downs of Sussex, which hosts ceremonies, receptions and events in two cosy barns, surrounded by 70 acres of breathtaking estate.

Rustic and rural, yet refined and romantic, the venue is 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 their 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. They are licensed for weddings and civil ceremonies for up to 180 guests, or can recommend some nearby historic churches. For receptions, conferences and parties they have licensed bars, the capacity for live music and can provide top-quality bespoke catering.

Planning your wedding day with Blackstock is easy and stress-free. Their dedicated wedding team are friendly and knowledgeable and are just a phone call away. They will work with you every step of the way to plan your day to the last details and will be on-hand during the big day itself, to make sure everything goes to plan.
