Hi Craig! Welcome to the forum and I'm glad you have done the research first!!! God Job.
Bacteria in a bottle may or may not work, it's a bit of a contentious issue, but to be honest it isn't worth paying for really.
If you want to speed up the process and you have a friend with a cycled aquarium then ask them can you have a piece of their filter media (sponge). Add this to the tank and it should help :)
You live in derbyshire? Lucky you!! Apparently there are lots of good fishstores nearby and there are lots of tanks from nearby going supercheap on ebay, you could save a fortune if you ever develop multiple tank syndrome! ;)
My Dad's fiancee is from there and it sounds like a nice enough spot!
