I'm getting the feeling some of the answers may be getting more complex than the one you're after?
Basically as long as you comply with the rules of the air regarding airspace, VFR etc there is no reason not to go above 3000. Indeed it is done as a matter of course without thought for many.
In fact it is essential when the granite is higher than 3000.
It's also true you are more likely to encounter traffic at 400kts below 1000 than between 3000 and a height you are likely to routinely achieve. Military is widespread in the UK.
I get the feeling you may benefit from revisiting the difference between 1013 and QNH?
In short there's nothing about your aeroplane or that altitude to worry about.
Don't infringe, remain VFR and enjoy.
