Would I be considered to live in a rural area?

I live on the edge of a village with a population of 900 in the English countryside.

    Yep, if you are in the countryside then everywhere is regarded as rural, unless it is a major town in the region of 3000+ population, even then the residents could be spreads out and some classed as living in a rural area.

    Take Shere in the Surrey Hills, around 1000 population in the village, 3000+ in the geographical area, so all would class themselves as partially rural, even those in the village outskirts.

    That sounds reasonably rural to me. Unless, possibly, the village is on the outskirts of a large town, and generally "looks to" that town for employment and shopping and primary schools etc.

    If you are surrounded by fields and trees then that is rural.

    Yes. But a lot depends on how far away the next large village or town is. If separated by two or three miles of farmland or moorland then that's rural in a modern English sense.
