What can you afford?
What do you want to play?

Taylor Academy 12 and Taylor Academy 12 N are excellent and designed with beginners in mind. Both cost somewhere between £500 and £600.

Any that are around £150 are decent enough. Not an acoustic player myself i’m on electric so im not perfectly qualified to recommend anything. Go to any decent guitar shop and they’ll point you in the right direction

Just a thought, but are you sure you have to//want to play left handed? It really cuts down on your choice of guitars and generally pushes the price up. I'm generally left handed (writing/aiming) but I play guitar and drive with my right. I'd say it's worth a try if you haven't already, as there are lazy people who will just tell you to play left handed and that's the end of it (my school music teachers)

(I'm also an electric player, not too clued up on acoustics)

Oh really? That's something I hadn't considered that I may not need to play left-handed.

I'd say it's deffo worth a try if you've literally never tried playing a guitar before. I don't know how they are with covid but any guitar store worth the name would likely be happy to help you try both. Or you could likely find someone giving away something or selling it v cheap on Gumtree etc just as a cheap experiment. Anyone you know own one you could have a shot of?
