A bug out place that`s too easy to get to won`t be very effective as a bug out place,will it? if you can just drive right up to it in your 4X4 everybody else will be able to also in their 4X4`s.

Hmm, I don't see why highway closure is a bad thing for a bug-out location. Most of Alaskans live in those conditions and that's their normal, not bug-out.
They either run dogs or snow-mobiles with trailers to run supplies in and out during the winter and usually 4 wheelers with similar trailers in the summer. They do have fairly close neighbors, often, and they form loose relationships. Splitting the meat from a moose, ideas, so on.
Think of the Ozark crowd, but on steroids, with a fairly high social co-operation for survival purposes...
Your piece of property sound perfect!

Looking at land in the north of England, we're talking around £40,000.00 ($61,000.00US) for around an acre with planning permission (permission to build a house).
I'm thinking though if I need to bug out then I would just head for the hills and get set up on any old land. Obviously this would not allow for planning/stocking supplies.
Actually no... I'd join the resistance. Fight not flight

I'm looking to buy around 3-5 acres in the next 3-5 years and build my dream home. Property can be found. I've found it.
I've found a number of places with 10 + acres for less than $20k near lakes/rivers. It's not going to be close to anything, but with that much land and some smart thinking you could prep it easily. Hunt fish and plant your food.
Then again I don't know what you think is reasonable $ and what exactly you want.
I'm looking to spend $100k-$200k +/- for 3-5 acres that isn't too far from a major highway (commuting) and is close enough to power/sewage so I don't end up spending a ton. I also want it enough off the beaten path so if need be I can down some trees and essentially cut off road access, but on a road that is serviceable if things are going as they should. I want the lot to be wooded too, just in case someone buys something close so that I can maintain privacy.
This is a decent link to look at properties in WA.
