Yours for £1.49m - Perranporth Airfield up for sale
An airfield that enjoys one of the most beautiful locations in the country has been put on the market.
Perranporth Airfield, with stunning views of the North Cornwall coast, is up for sale for £1.49 million.
Savills estate agents announced the sale of the freehold on behalf of a private vendor this morning.
The former Second World War Royal Air Force fighter station was first operational in April 1941, used by Spitfire squadrons and many of the WWII bunkers and shelters remain today.
More recently the airfield, which is the only privately owned airfield in Cornwall to have all-weather tarmac runways, has accommodated private aircraft and offered various flying instruction.
Kay Griffiths, associate at Savills Oxford, said: "Perranporth is located ten miles from Newquay and 11 miles from Truro occupying an impressive cliff-top site in a popular tourist area of the North Cornish coast.
"The airport is fully equipped to capitalise on the steady flow of tourism and could lend itself to both a commercial and/or leisure facility.
"As a result of this being an unusual property to come to the market, we are already receiving a high volume of interest."
