Rough budget £250, it's for my completely computer illiterate aunt, so I want Windows 7 so I can help her, I'm completely unfamiliar with 8, so I'd be next to useless. I'm looking specifically for an 11-13 inch screen as any thing bigger is too heavy for her.

It's just a basic machine for browsing, I tried her with a tablet, but her arthritis makes her unable to hold and use them at all.
ARGH! Someone gave me some goggles and a spork,
I don't know what the goggles do but I'm gouging my eyes out with the spork!

Windows 8 works almost exactly the same as Windows 7. The main difference is the Start Menu which you should be able to learn very quickly.

There are two versions of Windows 8:

Windows 8 and Windows 8.1

My experience with Windows 8 was a nightmare. But, Windows 8.1 is actually pretty good, and a lot more convenient to use. It's also very similar to Windows 7.

That laptop you want to buy has Windows 8.1 installed, so it shouldn't be a problem.

How to use Windows 8: after booting, click on the Desktop tile. Welcome to Windows 7.1.
Bonus with 8.1: after booting, set it to boot to Desktop mode by default.
