Honestly outstanding
Honestly outstanding service through and through, myself and my husband were so happy with the service we could not recommend them more. Professional, communicative and kind to what we envisioned for our wedding day. They were with us every step of the way and reassured us planning the wedding during the pandemic. If you want to get married somewhere beautiful, have the best hospitality and pressure free experience then please look into Blackstock Country Estate.

Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness
This was the venue that me and my now wife became husband and wife. As you can imagine you will always have high expectation's for your wedding day as it is deemed as the best day of your life...........and Blackstock and the team fulfilled this remit above and beyond. From start to finish the team at Blackstock replied quickly and professionally even when the odd hick up happened. This was resolved efficiently, professionally and we were supported throughout. When I arrived at the venue on the day of the wedding my breathe was taken away at how amazing it looked. The Team at Blackstock were immediately there to help with any last minute bits that needed to be organised. As we move onto the day itself and the service that was provided by the waiting staff, that were attentive, polite and supported my guests to help them relax after their journey to the wedding. The ceremony went perfectly smoothly and felt as though it had been rehearsed a million times but without the stress. The outside gardens and views took our guests breath away as they walked into the courtyard area. This gave me and my now wife the perfect opportunity to get some great pictures and video's in the lower part of the grounds by the lake. This process felt seamless as we were whisked down there on a golf buggy. The food, yes the wonderful food. This came out perfect for everyone. As I walked around to speak with our guest the commented on how amazing the food was and how identical each plate looked from one another. The waiting staff breezed in an out as if they were not there at all. Several weeks on we are still having comments regarding the food. As thankfully we were able to have a mostly sunny day we managed to get some fantastic photos of me and my wife in the sunset shots (of course this is due to the location of Blackstock). As the evening came the team supported us with sparklers that we had arranged for our guests and we enjoyed the dancing within the smaller barn. Of course this was helped by the great bar staff that kept us all topped up. They say your wedding day is the best day of your life and me and my wife can honestly say that we wouldn't have changed a thing as it was just perfect. So to conclude, myself and my wife and countless number of guest felt that the venue and the team at Blackstock were amazing and would certainly recommended.

Disappointed
We had our daughters wedding there last week we paid to have both farms ( So if people just wanted to talk they had a place to go) the security had locked all the doors , so no one could use the barn, and the security was very rude to my son in law. The security said you can only use one room at a time. so angry And my 11 year old granddaughter had to walk all the way around( near the main road) the building to get to her room and had to remember both gate/door codes this is disgraceful was not happy 😡

It brought tear to my eye
What a venue for my son and his new wife to get married at, everything was just perfect, the staff from the waiting staff to the security guard were exceptional. The food served was enjoyed by everyone. From the time we arrived at the venue we were looked after by the staff and everything went like clockwork. The venue itself was like a winter wonderland and it bought a tear to my eye. We stayed overnight at the venue and were pleased we did the accommodation was first class and relaxing. I would recommend this venue for any couple getting married it really is something special

Beautiful venue
My son and his fiancee chose Blackstock for their wedding. What an amazing choice! We all had a wonderful day from start to finish. The barns looked beautiful, the food was excellent and the staff extremely helpful throughout the whole day. Friends and family all had nothing but praise for the venue and all the staff. Luigi and James made sure the day ran perfectly and were supported by Veronica and other members of the team throughout the day, unfortunately I didn't get all the staff names to thank individually but please pass on our thanks to all involved on the day including the kitchen and waiting staff. Nothing was too much trouble for them to do and they were unintrusive but always on hand in the background if needed. There were several specific dietary requirements to cater for, a couple of which were quite unusual, but everyone really enjoyed the food, and people commented on how hot it all was and so well presented. Two of the guests who have very specific dietary needs both said it was the first time at a wedding that they'd felt fully included and catered for and had felt full at the end of the meal. The evening reception went flawlessly and the bar staff, DJs and Andy the security man were helpful and friendly throughout. Even allowing us to go to the newly weds room to leave some balloons and banners! It was lovely to stay at the venue at the end of a perfect day. The 3 bedroom cottage we stayed in was perfect as was breakfast with the rest of the party the next day. Again please pass on thanks to all those involved including the receptionist who opened up the barns so we could collect some of the decorations etc. Altogether a perfect and memorable day. Highly recommend the venue.

Huge thank you
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone at Blackstock for helping us have such a wonderful day on Sunday! The moment we first visited Blackstock we knew it was our perfect venue and a truly beautiful setting. Every member of staff has been friendly and helpful! Louisa and Josie were helpful answering all our questions before our wedding and on our wedding day Luigi at the start of the day was fantastic and so calming and both Kevin and Lorraine were equally brilliant! All the bar staff in the evening were also wonderful! So many guests commented on what a beautiful venue it was and how delicious the food was!! Thank you again and I’m sure we’ll be back in the not to distant future :)
