Looking for Home

Posted on
  • Hi all,
    I am arriving in Bath at the beginning of March, from Australia, to take up a job at RUH.

    I am looking for somewhere to live, as the hospital accomodation is like student hall digs, and the only place that I thought I had, fell through as they wanted someone from end of Jan!

    So if anyone knows of rooms etc available, please leave a message.

    I'm clean, tidy and will make a great training partner too.

  • Hey @SecretCritPro thanks for joining!

    I live just around the corner from the RUH but much of the accommodation nearby are family homes. You might get lucky but if you're looking for something smaller (1-2 bed) then you might want to try Grovsenor Place, Camden Crescent, The Paragon.

    Depending on your budget then you might want to try Curo, a local housing association that do brilliant, affordable housing. A friend of mine is renting a 1 bed flat in the Royal Crescent from them at a very reasonable cost.

    For flat sharing: Gumtree is the place to be in Bath or SpareRoom. Friends say that putting an add selling yourself on Gumtree and SpareRoom is a good idea because landlords are pretty proactive about finding people.

  • HI @BenJam thanks for the quick response.

    Great information, I'll follow it up. Experience of these things usually means they want to see you before you get something, and a little too risky to leave one country for another without a home.

  • When we moved here from Auckland we took a 2 week AirBnB here while we sorted out a house, a car and (for her) a job! It's not too difficult to take the plunge.

  • Sadly I am fast running out of time, finances won't allow for the above suggestion. Heavy costs involved with relocating from Perth, not in a particularly high paying job (NHS) Most of the links you provided are for people in the UK right now, and have lead time of 6/8 weeks.

    Looks like student digs aka staff accommodation.

  • Yeah, I've lived in those (in Shrewsbury). My other half is a Dr.
