is this computer good value for price

Value for money is difficult to say with all in ones because it depends on unlisted things like screen quality as well as the ergonomics and integration. That's not a very fast machine with it's low power laptop processor, ancient graphics card and hard disk drive instead of faster SSD. It may be particularly thin for an all in one or something though.

It's well worth considering a separate monitor and base unit. A modern Mini PC is very small these days. If you're willing to accept a laptop-style external power brick (like that all in one has) then they're about the size of a hardback book and even the ones with internal power supplies are only an inch or so bigger.

If you're willing to consider that then Lenovo's M900 Tiny seems a decent deal. With the current coupon and cashback offers the base i5-6400T model configured with 8GB of memory and a 256GB SSD comes to £430:
ThinkCentre M900 Tiny | 1L Desktop PC for Large Enterprises | Lenovo UK

The remaining £140 should be enough for a white 1920x1080 monitor that it can nestle behind.

It's the same overall price as the one you suggested.

Such low powered machines as the Adora will be adequate but they won't be for long. I'd expect to have to replace it in two or three years.

Lenovo were doing the M73z with a Pentium G3240 (similar speed to the i5-5200U) for circa £350 a month or so ago which was a good deal, it's back up to £420 now and at that price you might as well go for the next model up at £440 which adds the height adjustable stand, hybrid drive and double the graphics power:
10BC0017UK | Lenovo M73Z Core i3-4150 4GB 500GB +8GB DVDRW Windows 7/8.1 Professional All In One - Laptops Direct

It doesn't come in white though.
