thank you to everyone who has participated to this thread, it has been very useful.
This is what i have come up with. We have a pantry cupboard in the kitchen under the stairs which is where i have decided to run all the cables back to and have the router,switch and a small 2x 8 patch panels. Ive attached a floor plan, its not exact but its more or less the same, our all is a bit bigger which runs along the side of the lounge and has access to the kitchen and lounge so we dont have to walk through the lounge everytime we want to go up stairs.
2 network sockets with 1x double electric socket next to the BT Master socket. Extended bell wire / cat5e/6 to run to outside of house and down the side and pop back in the pantry where the router will sit.
1x double socket on the wall opposite the stairs
The hall is to get 4x downlights with LEDs.
Tv in the corner near the window on ajoining wall to neighbour. Here there will be 2x double electrical socket, F connectors for Sky, TV aerial socket and 2x Network sockets.
On the same wall near the dinning room 1x double elec socket (kitchen to be knocked through to dining to make a kitchen diner rather than a lounge diner), 1x double elec socket next either side of the patio doors with and outside double elec spurred off.
2x double elec on wall to the hall (one each side of the sofa)
Nothing happening yet, will be doing this later
4x double elec sockets (one in each corner) and a high level (HL) double socket for TV on the wall. 2x network sockets in one of the corners. TV Aerial point at HL with 2x Network sockets (HL) for smart TV etc for the future.
4x double elec sockets (one in each corner). TV and 2x network sockets in one corner
Bedroom 3 (kinda office)
This bedroom has a cupboard for the HWC (hot water cylinder). The HWC will be coming out and the boiler will be in the attic.
3x double elec sockets with a aerial socket. The corner with the TV socket will have 2x network points and the wall opposite will have 2x network sockets.
1x Double electric socket and a double network socket which will eventually have an access point on giving the whole house wifi.

Unless you are running compatible equipment on each end cat6 is pointless.

I would keep the router next to the bt master socket and then connect back to the pantry from there more reliable connection.
I'm not even sure what a Leeds accent sounds like, nor how you would type with one lol
You could always move the BT Master Socket problem solved then surely?
