If like my sister Mandy you're wanting to learn the guitar, reputable music shops will not only offer you a great range of budget beginner's guitars, but may also offer free guitar lessons. Here is one exceptional example of a budget acoustic guitar.

Epiphone Hummingbird Pro - this is my top pick! It's fantastic to play and currently on offer for £289 from amazon uk + £13 shipping. I loved it so much that I treated myself to one, and this morning I ordered one for Mandy's Christmas pressie.

Epiphone's Hummingbird Pro is the entry-level version of the famous Gibson Hummingbird. The body of this guitar has a dreadnought shape and is made of a solid, one-piece spruce top with a select laminated mahogany back and sides. This gives this acoustic guitar a warm, rounded sound. There's also a spruce top which helps to add brighter and clearer high sounds. The neck has a slim d-neck shape and is made from selected mahogany, with a rosewood fretboard with 20 frets. The bridge is also made from rosewood, with 6 bridge pins that holds the strings and has a synthetic bone saddle. This lovely budgeyt guitar also has grover tuners and synthetic tortoise pickguard. It weighs 2.3 kg so not bad.

Why do I also rave about this Hummingbird Pro? Incredibly, this acoustic guitar has a built-in pickup, with a Shadows ePerformer preamp system that allows you to connect this guitar to an amp or PA system. The preamp system has treble and bass controls, a master volume control, and is powered by 2032 round batteries.

Before you go out and buy a guitar, Artist Guitars give excellent advice:

So there you go. There's nothing lovelier than an ace budget guitar, and free lessons if you look around.
