Only the northern tip of DE that is geographically part of the Appalachian Piedmont has some resemblance to the English countryside. However, much of northern DE is more rugged and forested than anything I've seen in England. Some of the land that has been cleared for farming or as meadowland in estates and state parks up around the Montchanin area does resemble parts of the English countryside a lot. However, we have stone walls or rough wood fences in northern DE, whereas in England you would expect that at least some of these old property lines would be in the form of hedgerows (unfortunately hedgerows are very much endangered in England and miles of them "disappear" - are removed - every year). The rest of DE does not resemble England IMO, although I suppose if you really stretched, you could draw some similarity between the farmland of lower Kent and Sussex Counties, DE and the fens of Cambridgeshire and Norfolk (broad, flat and rather swampy/marshy in both cases).
