I'm in Wales, Pontypridd at the moment (About 1/2 hour out of cardiff). My Parents are in Surrey, 45/1hr train ride into london (depending on which part), so I can alway move back home if need be.

Depending on accommodation, I would consider relocating anywhere. Commuting, from where I am at the moment, Swansea/Cardiff/Newport probably, though I'd prefer Swansea/Cardiff way.

I've more general linux experience... I'm more comfortable with Ubuntu / Debian CLI, but I have worked on a red-hat based distro before. (Setting up a Asterisk-VM).

I'm not afraid of moving, the only limit at the moment is my dwindling savings and somewhere to live..
