The same rental budget can translate into very different properties all over the UK, as these 5 on Zoopla go to show.
1. One-bedroom flat in Tulse Hill, London
Unless you’re prepared to share in the capital, for £1,000 a month you’ll need to look to the suburbs. This one-bedroom first-floor flat in south London is only a short walk from Gipsy Hill station – around 30 minutes from London Bridge by train. The property is small but recently refurbished.

2. Two-bedroom property in Colchester, Essex
You’ll get two double bedrooms for your £1,000 with this contemporary mews house, as well as two bathrooms and a brand-new kitchen. Located in central Colchester, right next to the train station, it’s perfect for both local workers and London commuters.

Your £1,000 will go further still in Manchester. This three-bedroom townhouse – which offers two bathrooms, a utility room and car port – is set over three floors. It’s a stone’s throw from the city centre and comes completely furnished.

4. Four-bedroom property in Jersey Marine, Neath
You could rent this detached family home with four bedrooms, three reception rooms, two bathrooms and two parking spaces in Wales for a £1,000 budget. Although if you want access to the garage as well, the cost goes up by £300.

5. Four-bedroom property in Burythorpe, North Yorkshire
It’s staggering what £1,000 rent can buy you in the countryside – such as this stunning four-bedroom barn conversion in North Yorkshire. Standout features include the conservatory and roof terrace from where you can take in views of rolling hills.
