Boconnoc House is playing host to a variety of exhibitors from Cornwall and further afield at a Michaelmas Fair.

Visitors are being invited to get ahead with some early Christmas shopping during the two-day event at the 750-year-old stately home, near Lostwithiel.

An eclectic range of businesses are selling everything from wonderful clothes, fabulous jewellery to innovative and useful products for the house and home.

Last year more than 500 visitors descended on the venue, which is linked to one of the most famous jewels in history. The house was bought in 1717 by Thomas Pitt, Governor of Madras, with the proceeds of the Pitt Diamond, the world's largest diamond.

The event, sponsored by Cornwall Life, Savills and Brewin Dolphin, is open today between 9.30am and 3pm.

Admission is £3 in aid of The Royal British Legion and Boconnoc Church.
