    Bristol/Bath Residents Living Costs help

    Im in the process of getting cleared for a job which will be based either in Bristol or Bath, and was wondering if you kind people could help me working out my living expenses.
    The main thing which I need to investigate is rental costs in the area. I've tried gumtree but it's hard to work out as prices vary so much
    What would you guys say are average rental costs for 1 bedroom flats in these cities?

    For Bristol you looking at £450 p.m renting.
    Depends where abouts u live though, closer to the centre ur looking at £750

    My daughters just rented a 2 bed flat in KIngswood (just on the edge) for £595. There were some very poor 1 and 2 beds she looked at with her bf... I'd stick to purpose built if I were you. Some of the house conversion were very badly done and to be honest looked c&*p !!
    Very expensive in the centre (the harbour side is VERY high, very nice flats mind you). Are you driving or using the bus ?

    Bath is very expensive, so best bet is Kingswood as it's only 20mins to Bath from there on the ring road and there's a bus route too

    Thanks for the help guys.
    I'd be driving, but the difficult thing is I can't even accurately say where I might be based exactly as the employer has so many establishments in the regional area.

    I live in Bristol and do some contract work in Bath.

    I live in East Bristol on the A420 and everywhere is pretty much a 30 min commute

    Useful info to know, ty!
    I wish they could hurry up and send me more info on my placement, so I can do some proper planning. But since the job doesn't start till Sept they've got plenty of time :roll:

    No probs, if you need any help nearer the date let me know :thumbsup:
