MILEHOUSE Milehouse is a late Victorian, Edwardian and 1930s suburb. It is now notable for being the depot base of the local City Bus company and has a popular, Wetherspoons pub. Formerly it was famous for the site of Outland House, the large family home of Robert Falcon Scott, who led the tragic British expedition to the South Pole and died on the return journey.
The area borders Plymouth's huge Central Park home of The Plymouth Life Centre, and Home Park, the ground of Plymouth Argyle football club. It is a reputable area with good facilities and is convenient to the city centre, the parkland (there's also an environmental park in the suburb) and the main road in and out of town.
Stoke Community College, Stuart Road Primary School, Devonport High School for Girls, Devonport High School for Boys and Montpelier Primary School, are all within a mile of the suburb
