You enter your postcode/zip code and then you can return results within
5/10/20/200 miles of that address.
I'm going scatty trying to think what it might be called, let alone where I
might buy such a thing.
Any help greatly appreciated.

Geocoding is usually regarded as the opposite of what's needed here.
It's taking known things and describing their known location. What the
OP needs is taking some identifier (best is a geographical identifier,
such as postal code), then selecting other items owing to their own
Round here that's normally called "geolocation", but "radius search"
finds it (along with a bunch of other stuff).
