A Cornish-inspired Christmas is set for a National Trust site.

From December 2 to 31, excluding Christmas Day and Boxing Day, Trelissick near Truro, overseen by the National Trust, will be packed with seasonal offerings.

The eighteenth-century house will be adorned with Christmas decorations, using local heritage and traditional Cornish tartans as inspiration.

The tale of Tom Bawcock’s Eve will be told in The West Library through decorations handmade by staff and volunteers.

A stargazy pie will feature prominently on the Christmas dining table display.

In the stable yard, visitors can enjoy performances of local choirs, dancing, and storytelling underneath a tipi.

Christmas games for all ages will also be available.

Storytelling sessions by Father Christmas and a festive trail will lead families around the site while learning about Christmas traditions.

Jen Pina, property operations manager for Trelissick, said "We're delighted to be celebrating traditions old and new with a Cornish Christmas this year.

"We're putting our local heritage at the heart of our festive celebrations with Cornish carols, food and drink, decorations and storytelling."

From December 2 to December 5, a craft fair will be held in the barn, with handmade presents being sold by staff and volunteers.

Crofters café and the house tearoom will serve festive treats, while the stable yard pop-up will offer seasonal cakes and hot chocolates.
