Yes and no roger
The overall space for layout is about 21x10 when finished
But there are beams in the way, the water tank in dead centre
But I will sort something out

I've fitted a Velux to my loft. You can open a vent without having to open the complete window.
This has completely transformed the space as during the day the amount of light changes the area and even in inclement weather the vent makes it more airy and bright.
If possible, I'd definitely recommend fitting one.

It wouldn't take much to move the tank against the wall if it will fit through the bracing. It would give you more scope although you would need to be careful to keep it as high as possible to provide the best hot water pressure.

If you have a combi boiler the tank is no longer needed as the hot water comes at mains pressure from the boiler/

So the tank should be empty and a good plumber would have removed it.
