    South West Removals

    Fun South West Facts

    Award

    Sporting Giants

    Cheese Rolling, Nettle Eating, Pasty Throwing, Orange Racing, Onion Eating, the South West is one of the most sportingly creative (and crazy!) regions in the UK. If you’re looking for a more sedate competition you could try the Tiddlywinks World Championships. The South West also invented pin bowling and Dragonball! (no, we’ve no idea what that is either?!?).

    Apple

    Cider

    More than 500 different varieties of apple are grown here in the South West for making what is arguably our finest export. Many of these varieties have been bred purely for the purposes of brewing the western wonder that is a ‘proper drop’. There are dozens of cider producers across the region, from the big-name brands to small artisan producers and those that brew it exclusively for themselves. Cider makers… We salute you all!

    Tea

    Tea & Pasties

    There are two hotly contested issues around these parts that have the power to tear families apart…. Cream first or jam first? And… Who invented the pasty? Devon and Cornwall both lay claim to making the perfect cream tea, the difference being the order of adornments. The counties are also known to get a little bit touchy over who invented the pasty, the oldest written account of a pasty is in a Devon cookbook but Cornwall isn’t giving it up easily.

    Ghost

    It’s Spooky

    Smugglers tales, the Beast of Bodmin, phantom soldiers, the ghost of Sir Francis Drake, from the tip of Cornwall to Gloucester’s headless horseman, there have been strange goings on around these parts (and that’s not just the cider talking!).

    Numbers

    The Numbers

    The South West has 10 Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, 2 National Parks, 4 World Heritage Sites, 630 miles of coastline, is surrounded by 3 different bodies of water, has over 5 million residents, 2 languages and plenty of pasties, cider and cream teas to share with all our visitors. You’re welcome!

    Podium

    Big Claims

    As a region we have some notable claims, we have the narrowest street, the slowest traffic (Exeter is slower than London!), we have the oldest bakery and we’re home to the last ever UK’s witch trials. We also have the above average weather, above average life expectancy and in our opinion above average ice cream, made with proper clotted cream (it’s the only way!).

    Sign Post

    Named & Shamed

    We also have some silly place names; Tiddleywink, Currey Mallet, Velvet Bottom, Knobs End, Pudding Pie Lane, Butcombe, Westonzoyland, and our own particular favourite, Happy Bottom.

    Wine

    Food Fight

    When we’re not arguing about cream teas and pasties, we’re producing award-wining wines, excellent cheeses and the UK’s hottest chilies (Dorset Naga). This is farming country, the rolling hills, hot sun, warm winds and lower levels of pollution make the region perfect for growing good crops and produce, from bacon to barley, wheat to wurzels, here in the South West we do it all with excellent taste!

    About the South West

    About the South West

    Made up of 7 counties, (Bristol, Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Somerset and Wiltshire), it’s easy to see why South West removals are in increasing demand. The region offers a warmer climate, lower than average rainfall, good house prices, lower crime rate and higher life expectancy. An area associated with incredible natural beauty, miles of pristine coastline and sandy beaches, moors, woodland and myths and legends, the South West has much to offer.

    Foodies will find plenty to get their teeth into, the South West serves up some of the finest seafood, famous cream teas, clotted cream, legendary fudge, the golden pasty and of course, cider. You’ll also find the UK’s largest vineyard in an area that has a number of award-winning wine producers and sparkling wine that has even over-taken France for its place in the world rankings.

    Full of innovation and artistry the area has a thriving art scene (Banksy started his art crusade in his home town of Bristol), the region is a strong base for movie and TV production, Oscar winning Aardman Animations are based here, the scenery and picturesque villages and grand architecture offer excellent film locations, plus an estimated 50% of the world’s nature documentaries are made in the South West. And it’s funny, Russel Howard, Miranda Hart, David Walliams, Bill Bailey, Lee Evans and Jon Richardson are just some of those that cut their comedy teeth here.

    So, on average you’ll get more sunshine, live longer, laugh more and get some of the UK’s finest food and drink. So what are you waiting for? Contact Armishaws today and get a move on!
