Better off with an ISA with this kind of balance I would think? (Assuming you can get an ISA above 4% of course!)

only if you don't have above the threshold to play with, otherwise it'll take you x years to get it in anyway, so might as well do something productive with it in the interim.

plus yes I think cash ISA rates are pretty shocking at the mo. I wonder if they adjust the rates to allow roughly for basic rate tax anyway, as there always seem to be better rates available with non-ISA savings accounts. If you're a basic rate tax payer I wonder how much value there is in a cash ISA TBH (given the rate spread against some 'normal' savings accounts, especially if you're happy to juggle as needed)

Current maximum for Cash ISA is only £3,600 (unless over age 50) so you couldn't put £5,000 (the minimum for this investment) in an ISA anyway.
