Blacknest Golf & Country Club is set in the stunning Hampshire countryside near Farnham, surrounded by 100 acres of parkland and fields beyond. Within 30 minutes drive of Farnham, Winchester and Petersfield market towns it offers a rural location for people wishing to get away, without the long drive.

Whether you are planning a traditional wedding, or something more alternative we offer a bespoke service to make it a wonderful day to remember. From your initial enquiry, through to overseeing the smooth running of the occasion itself, our helpful and experienced staff will be with you every step of the way.

One of the most important aspects of your day is food, whether you want a traditional wedding breakfast, handcrafted bowl food, mouthwatering canapés or an indulgent English BBQ showcasing local produce - we will ensure that each menu is tailored to your needs and invite each couple in for a complementary tasting before the big day.

Our beautiful Woodlands Events Tipi has been in place for a couple of years and is able to cater for 70 - 150 seated guests, and up to 200 evening guests. It consists of three nordic hats and is on-site from May to September each year. With the addition of our Outdoor Pavilion, which is licensed for Civil Ceremonies, it makes it the perfect spot for an outdoor, rustic or festival style Wedding.

We also offer year-round Weddings in our modern and stylish Clubhouse. We have multiple areas available to host your Civil Ceremony for 60 - 100 guests, our Function Room seats up to 100 guests for a Wedding Breakfast and hosts up to 150 evening guests. Each room is neutrally decorated, giving you the opportunity to add your own personal touches and decorations to make it truly unique.

Inside the Clubhouse we also have 5 guest bedrooms, including a Bridal Suite overlooking the grounds, which is the perfect addition to offer accommodation to those special people on the day. For Tipi Weddings we also have plenty of space for Bell Tents to be pitched so you guests can enjoy 'Glamping' in style.

At Blacknest we are fortunate to be able to offer couples a completely individual experience. Whether you choose our picturesque Woodlands Tipi or our stunning Clubhouse there is something for everyone no matter your budget or size of party.

    Festival wedding of our dreams!

    We got married in the woodland tipi at Blacknest and it was AMAZING! Hayley and the team were so helpful throughout the wedding planning process and the venue is stunning, nothing was too much and we were allowed to have everything we imagined, even down to having our T4 parked up and bell tents. Our guests have been raving about the day ever since, especially the food, it was so much nicer than standard wedding food! We would definitely recommend Blacknest as a wedding venue and are looking for an excuse to have another party there very soon, thank you all so much for everything :)

    Blacknest Golf & Country Club's reply:

    We were so thrilled to be part of your day and your photos look absolutely amazing, thank you so much for sharing.
    We wish you both a lifetime of happiness and hope to see you and your family and friends at the club again in the future xx

    Best venue ever!

    We had the time of our lives at Blacknest golf club! The venue is breathtaking and we would highly recommend getting married there :) The staff were fantastic, they were very accommodating and friendly. Hayley was great in helping us to organise everything. She was professional, friendly and calm, efficient and was always available to discuss details. The food was EXCELLENT and drinks were reasonably priced. I would love to do it all over again! Thank you Blacknest for making our day so special :) We will remember this day forever!

    Love Anna & Justin

    We wouldnt change a thing...

    The woodlands Tipi fitted our Wedding perfectly. A unique beautiful venue which wowed our guests. We toasted marshmallows, lit sparklers on the fire pit. The kids were able to play safely and happily outside. We were able to personalize the Tipi with our own touches of bunting, flowers, balloons to really make it our own. The staff were professional and helpful, assisting us in every way possible. Blacknest made our Wedding just as we imagined, we wouldn’t change a thing.

    We had the most amazing Wedding Day!

    We had the most amazing Wedding Day which Blacknest helped to make as magical and amazing as we imagined. The venue is a beautiful Tipi with a relaxed feel amongst beautiful grounds. We had garden games set up outside, a photo booth camper and an ice cream camper, which all worked perfectly and nothing was too much for the lovely Blacknest staff to help make it happen. The team were very accommodating with our ideas. I cannot fault a single thing and highly recommend this venue.

    We absolutely LOVED everything about our Wedding

    We absolutely LOVED everything about our wedding day, we got SO much positive feedback from our guests who said that the Tipi is one of, if not the best wedding venue they have ever been too. The food was great and there was plenty of it, and the presentation of the drinks with the bar looked amazing.

    We honestly have no negative feedback on the venue, staff or food etc..

    I have attached some photos for you to look through, please feel free to use for any PR or social channels etc.

    Thank you again for all your effort and being so responsive throughout all the planning.

    Lots of love,

    Mr and Mrs Hanson x

    Fantastic original Wedding venue.

    Fantastic original Wedding venue. Stunning Tipi! Wonderful fire pit. Great relaxed venue. We had 40 guests camping and a great breakfast was out on the following morning. Friendly staff. Wedding manager Hayley was fantastic at overseeing everything and calm and professional and forever helpful. All our guests and family loved it. Perfect with the number of children we had who ran around and had a great time. Thank you Blacknest!

    Nothing was too much trouble for them..

    We booked our wedding at late notice and only gave the team at Blacknest 9 weeks. We had cancellations and menu changes right up to the day before and nothing was too much trouble for them. The venue is clean, tidy and has a very relaxed feel about it. This is largely due to the staff that work there and the very warm welcome you receive from day one.
