Well, it's not quite the same or at least not where I live. What's typical for a seaside heat is the high air humidity while constantly breezing whereas countryside heat mostly comprises of lack of (dry) air movement. Although born and living at sea level for nearly thirty years and all this in Southern Europe it was still hard to adapt to the former yet it turned out to be even worse each time I had to face the latter.
I don't know how exactly the weather is like in the North West as I only lived in the UK for four summer months in Kent but from what I saw and swet over there it was quite similar to what I had known from home.
Where I live now is the plains north of the Alps and south of the Danube valley, which is an area with a comfortable mixture of both. It's not quite hot due to the proximity of the mountains while it's rather windy and dry. Another big point is the fact that Augsburg is the city with the highest percentage of woods within its city limits Europe-wide. Add the two rivers running through it to this equation et voila. It's quite different I think.
