Cave Dale in Derbyshire Peak District, England

Other than a quick trip down to Nashville, we stayed close to home this year.  That doesn't mean I'm not thinking about travel, though, dreaming of new destinations or old favorites.  Recently, we watched Princess Bride again (such a great movie) and some of the scenes triggered my wanderlust. I started to google the film locations, especially for the scene where Buttercup pushes Westley down a steep slope into a valley.  I found out that valley is Cave Dale, near Castleton in Derbyshire Peak District in England.

Okay, definitely a place I should visit.  Absolutely beautiful, and perfect for hiking or biking.
