I attended a conference at this venue so cannot comment on the other attractions. However, there was plenty of parking, excellent clean toilet facilities, comfortable atmosphere at the right temperature and refreshed by unobtrusive air conditioning. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, they were all very friendly. The buffet lunch was excellent and there was plenty of it... More

My son had his wedding here on September the 9th , I live in France and so making wedding arrangements were always going to be hard. From the first visit to black stock things couldn't have been easier, both Paul and his wife were a pleasure to deal with and made the whole process simple. There are so many options... More

We have recently booked our wedding at Blackstock for December this year. I have found the facilities and over venue to be far superior to anything we visited before we decided to book the venue. The staff are always really lovely and ready to help along with being very professional in everyday. The food at the venue is out of... More

Wow what a wonderful place this is for a wedding! Just had my step daughters day there and was blown away with the setting and views, the barns and gardens are gorgeous, the play areas and animals were such a bonus for the kids. The ceremony was in a cosy part of the main barn and set the day for... More

My son and Daughter- in-Law held their wedding at the farm this week and the. day was absolutely perfect. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Both Barns were used, one for the ceremony which was used again for the evening dancing and the buffet, with the other barn used for the Wedding Breakfast and they were both decorated... More

Excellent venue for wedding or parties, beautiful surroundings and gardens which are perfect for photographs. Service is efficient and friendly and the wedding service was very well conducted but nevertheless remained relaxed and informal creating a friendly and intimate atmosphere. Highly recommended for any event.

After visiting the farm a couple of year ago we decided to go back today. What a waste of time and money. 99% of the walks are now closed off with no entry signs everywhere. We saw one goat and a handful of donkeys. No zip wire as advertised. It appears they've become more focused about weddings and private functions... More
