For less than the landing / handling charge you can land at EGTP, Perranporth. Very good cafe and the cahrge is £0.095 / kg max wt. - works out at £12 or so for a 172 Paying that you can get to Jamie Oliver's place and back by taxi and still save money.....
It's easy to care, hard to change things.

I think you're missing a zero somewhere. Using that formula the landing fee for a C172 is £110 :shock:
Went down there today for want of anything better to do. Very friendly reception and landing fee for my PA28 £13.33, fuel at £1.58 per litre a little steep I thought.
We walked along the cliffs for an hour to Perranporth village and enjoyed a very good lunch at Seiners overlooking the beach and then walked an hour back
On a sunny day the cliffs are a delight, Perranporth is a bit naff and I shouldn't think it's very inviting on a poor weather day.
Extremely grumpy PPL/IR
Picked up fuel there on the way back from the Scillies in the week. Made a bit of a mess of my first approach -- distracted by the cliffs! Bit disconcerting the first time you come in over those!
Facilities pretty basic, but everyone very friendly and helpful, although we were there at the tail end of the day.

Scribblings of a novice PPL
I went there at the beginning of May. Everyone was very helpful. The cliff walk took us over 2 hours I think (so you must have been running along the cliffs !). We landed on 23 and took off on 05 but had to watch out for the parachutists doing regular sorties !
It would be a nice place to stop off and have a break, put on lifejackets, etc for the crossing to the Scillies
Still a very friendly place and very scenic surroundings. Landing fee a trivial £9.00 (for an RV6).
Love the take-off from 27 - straight over a cliff at the end. Would be great coming in on 09.
WiFi available, get the code from the Tower.
The tower with the Avgas pumps behind the large white van on the left
A rather nice memorial near the tower
The airfield on top of the cliff
Just done the walk today along the cliffs and from the tower to the town it took two (past their prime) aviators 65 minutes. Plenty of buses from the main road into the town if you prefer.
We were stopping to take lots of photos, hence our snails pace !!
Went down for a quick bimble form the Bushe today. Landing fee for the Commander was £15+. No cafe operator now (for the winter at least) due to council cuts.
You are still dangerous! You can be my wingman anytime.
