I have a blocked outside rain water drain. It is an old fashioned type (sink or cystern?). I am thinking about buying a drain snake, I have seen one for £20. I was wondering how flexible they are?
The drain has a small sink with a pipe coming of it with a u bend on it.

Not sure from your description or diagram quite what the arrangement is you have.... Snakes are ok for small pipes, I think it may be too flexible if you are trying to clear an underground pipe which is likely to be 4". Rods would be better in this case, or try a plunger in the gulley pot if that is what you have.
