Big and bustling by village standards, Millbrook sits at the head of a tidal creek on the River Tamar, just across the water from Plymouth. It offers a good choice of shops and services, including groceries, newsagents and three public houses. Millbrook Creek, meanwhile, is a haven for sleek, stylish yachts and a renowned boat building centre.
