South West England
Over the coasts and valleys in southwest England lie the mysterious mists of Camelot: the craggy peaks of Cornwall, the fertile farmlands of Somerset, the drizzly charming Dorset villages, the grassy, gusty Devon moors. The so-called 'West Country' is the legendary region of Arthurian knights and cuckolded kings, Moorish pirates and Mayflower pilgrims, Stone Age sacrifices and solstice awakenings. It also has more sunshine and tends to be warmer than the rest of England, but that may be a myth too.
