Yes, it is a good place to start, but being here, is so much more realistic than being back home and just reading other people's experiences. I will repeat what I would say to anyone that intends to settle here; don't burn all your bridges in the UK, come out, RENT, take your time, find your piece of Bulgaria that suits your future lifestyle and give it a try. If it fits after 6 months or 18 months, only them decide to make it your home.
There are HUGE differences in the lifestyle, culture, language, laws, traditions to name but a few from what you're used to back home, BUT if you can see your way through all of that then, BULGARIA has a lot to offer.
Good luck and hope to see your future posts.
