Located in the very centre of the city of Bath, a minute or so from Nelson House, both properties provide easy access to all the city's main amenities.
Traditionally an all-female residence, Linley House can be found in a cobbled street just opposite the study centre. It houses up to eight students in twin bedrooms, with an elegant dining room, a living room with TV and VCR, a kitchen and two bathrooms. There is a small patio to the rear of the house which students can enjoy on warm days. This listed (historic) building was owned in the eighteenth century by Thomas Linley the Elder, whose son was a composer and friend to Mozart, and whose daughters were famously painted by Sir Thomas Gainsborough (the younger, Elizabeth, later eloped with the playwright Richard Brinsley Sheridan, a former resident of the building that is now Nunes House).
Nunes House is an imposing Georgian building situated on the River Avon, just around the corner from Nelson House, the study centre. It houses up to 14 students in four individual flats (apartments), each with twin and single rooms, individual kitchens and two bathrooms. The rooms to the front of the house enjoy views over the River Avon, Pulteney Bridge, The Parade Gardens and Bath Rugby ground. Those to the side look over the river, Bath Cricket ground and across to the hill where Bath University is situated. All students share a common room with a TV and VCR.
