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.Source(s): https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shere

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.

Yes, I would call that rural.
