Good bargain, starter bike?

Hi everyone,
I'm 16 years old and would like to involve myself in cycling. I just bought a Lee Cooper road bike for £200. I was hoping that somebody would know of this make, as it is a very small company. From what I have currently researched the producer of these bikes hand builds them in his shop in Coventry, England. The bike was pre-owned but in perfect condition.

Details of the Bike:

The frame is a 20" Aluminium 7005 frame with Reynolds 531 forks.
Wheels are FIR apollo rims on Hope hubs and the spokes are DT Swiss double butted bladed spokes.
Brakes, brake levers and gear levers are Shimano Tiagra.
The gears and derailleurs are Shimano Ultegra.

I would like to know whether £200 is a good buy for this bike and whether it is a good starter bike.
