The Millfields is the former Royal Naval Hospital comprising a community with a range of historic buildings, set in secure landscaped walled grounds – in all approximately 26 acres. Built in 1900, The Captains House is not listed, however it lies within a designated Conservation Area (The Millfields Conservation Area) administered by Plymouth City Council & English Heritage. However, a number of the former hospital buildings are listed and The Captains House forms part of this enclave. The Millfields is situated within one mile of the City Centre, the fashionable Royal William Yard, Durnford Street and the water’s edge, with ferry connection to Cremyll and Mount Edgcumbe Park also being within a 10 minute walk. The site is within easy reach of all the best that the city has to offer: the Theatre Royal, Plymouth Hoe, the Barbican, the excellent boating and sports facilities and a wide variety of pubs and restaurants, where one can enjoy the fresh produce of which the city is justifiably proud. As a major regional centre for Devon and Cornwall, Plymouth City Centre has a wide range of amenities including the well-known Drake Circus shopping mall with its excellent collection of national retailers and quality independent outlets, boutiques, shops, restaurants and bars which, together with theatres, cinemas and museums serve the needs of residents and tourists. Plymouth’s rich cultural life is supported by the expanding University of Plymouth which occupies the northern City Centre area. It adds vibrancy to many of the city’s institutions as well as providing a myriad of courses and further educational opportunities. Today the host of sailing boats and other watercraft further enhance the atmosphere of the city. Stunning yachts mingle with picturesque fishing boats in one of the great natural harbours of the world set betwixt Devon and Cornwall. The hospital served the Royal Navy for 235 years providing medical staff for the battle of Trafalgar to the Falklands. It saw many additions and changes throughout its long period of service, with the surgeons and nurses finally amalgamating with the main hospital at Derriford in March 1995. Since then the site has been the home to redevelopment and enterprise and has grown into a community who enjoy the historic context, the wonderful environment and the enviable location enormously. The historic buildings have in the main been converted into a series of beautifully appointed and luxurious apartments. There are also a wide range of commercial premises with occupying businesses situated within The Millfields – a true mixed use community. The peace of mind afforded to residents within The Millfields is exceptional. The gated entrance with 24 hour security, for both vehicles and pedestrian access, provides a wonderfully relaxed and secure atmosphere to the whole community.
