It is a Victorian housing development built into the site of a quarry from which much limestone was taken for the city centre development of Plymouth. It abuts Millbay harbour to the west and the Hoe promenade to the east. Much of the housing stock is used as lodging houses and bed and breakfast tourist hotels. There are still some interesting and elegant buildings including a grand parade and the remnant of the old public steam baths beside West Hoe Basin which were briefly a yacht club and latterly a bar/restaurant.
