Hello Steve,
The Dawes Saratoga comes under the category of a "Comfort Mountain Bike". The frame is slightly different to a mountain bike in that the frame's head tube is longer so that the rider sits more on the saddle and doesn't have to stretch forward. There are two bikes in the range the Saratoga and the Saratoga Comfort, which has front suspension. Both have 28,38,48 chainrings.
There are two dealers in Hertfordshire, H Cycles, Hatfield and Cycledealia in Hitchin.
Normally I would say the 20" frame would be suitable for someone of your height but the 18" would give you an even more upright riding position, although you may find the bars a bit too close, so you would need to sit on one to see.
I you have no joy with the dealers, ring Dawes and ask for the name of the nearest dealer with one, the rep should have an idea.
