West Country, United Kingdom

The West Country is as quaint as it is rural, with just a few larger cities to interrupt the green sprawling English countryside and catch a wandering visitor’s attention for a few hours before they head back out onto the sprawling farms and rolling hills. For dramatic coastlines, fabulous beaches and some of the best surfing in Britain it has to be Cornwall. Stopping along the meandering country roads, literature lovers and history buffs alike will enjoy Bath, walking the same streets as Jane Austen and exploring the old Roman Baths.

Or if it all gets a bit too quaint travel on to Bristol for some big city life after all that fresh country air. An industrial city no longer, Bristol has been transformed into a cultural centre that may seem all too sophisticated after the simplicities of countryside living.
