Venue Overview

Blackstock Estate, Grove Hill, Hellingly

A truly intimate country venue in beautiful Sussex, 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.


The Perfect Venue For Your Perfect Day

Overlooking our grounds are two beautiful restored barns, The Tudor and The Granary. They can be hired separately, with access to the grounds, or taken together for exclusive use of the entire estate for your wedding.

Both barns are set amongst our 70 acres of scenic farmland and enjoy stunning views of the South Downs. Within, they are tastefully decorated and can be easily adjusted to suit your theme. Guests can easily stroll in and out, exploring the meadows and woods at their leisure, enjoying a drink on the patio areas under the stars or taking part in the festivities inside.

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.

Or if you would prefer to hold the ceremony elsewhere, with the reception at Blackstock Country Estate, we are conveniently located close to several historic churches and can happily make recommendations and help arrange transport to and from the venues.

If you have any special requirements for your ceremony, then let us know. We will endeavour to accommodate any wish that you may have to make your ceremony completely personal to you.

Thank you to everyone at Blackstock for allowing us to have the most perfect wedding day. All our guests have said it was the best day and we've had numerous comments on how lovely the venue and your staff were.

staff and the team working on our wedding day. Your attentiveness to us and our guests was exceptional.

Please pass on our thanks to the chef and the team. The food was delicious. Again, our guests were very happy with all the courses they were served, and I'm confident no one left hungry!

We couldn't recommend your venue enough and we cannot wait to pop in one Sunday for one of your lovely fry ups!

On behalf of my HUSBAND & I, we would just like to say a huge thank you for helping us create the most perfect wedding day bespoke to us. Your whole team were so friendly - something that all of our guests commented on! And we really felt that no request or email (of which there were many!) was

dismissed or belittled.

The food was incredible with so many of our guests agreeing that it was better than restaurant standard! I don’t think there was a single mouthful left on any plate.

Gill and Andre helped us to feel so relaxed in what was a very stressful build up and Sarah and Florian were incredible on the day, making sure that everything went seamlessly. Karen always made us feel welcome and important and I really hope that we can stay in touch for a long time to come. We feel like part of the Blackstock family!

We have genuinely fallen in love with Blackstock and you definitely haven’t seen the last of us! We just wish we could do our whole day all over again.
