Blackstock Country Estate

The feel

Blackstock is a beautiful country venue in the heart of Sussex. Set in the breathtaking country side of the South Downs with a gracefully refurbished 16th Century Barn, that offers versatile space within 70 acres of gardens, meadows, woodland and plentiful memorable photo opportunities of your special day.

Here at Blackstock we have two beautiful barns, The Tudor and The Granary. We offer the option of reserving either one barn, with access to the grounds, or both barns, which would allow you to enjoy the entire venue exclusively for your big day.

As well as providing the perfect venue to hold your reception, we are also licensed to hold civil partnership and wedding ceremonies for up to 180 of your guests. If you would prefer to hold the ceremony elsewhere, with the reception at Blackstock, we are conveniently located close to the church of St Peter and St Paul.

Enjoy a truly memorable day with Blackstock Weddings. With picture perfect scenery, you can have a memorable ceremony, followed by a truly splendid reception in one of our barns complete with the high standard catering services from Fine Food. Then completing your perfect day with a night in our Bridal Cottage with a four poster bed and roll top bath. We also have accommodation for up to 22 guests on-site.
