I'm looking for a cheap second hand five-door family hatchback on a budget of around £2000. I will be travelling 1000 miles per month with a mixture of urban and motorway. Could you please advise me as this is my first time buying?

I'd recommend a Toyota Corolla. They're rated highly by owners and aren't as popular as something like a Volkswagen Golf so your money goes further. Also consider a Honda Civic or Mazda 3. Avoid diesels are they're likely to be problematic at this price.
