In the heart of the Lake District there is a place unlike any other. Far from the bustle of Lake Windermere lies the tranquility of Ullswater. There on the banks of this beautiful lake is Dobbin Wood. Trees of every type seem to clamour for your attention as you follow one of the secluded paths to the shore line of Ullswater.
As I stood looking across the lake on my first visit, shivering just a little, the inspiration for this design was born. Dobbinwood is the wrap that would have kept me warm that day, and I hope it’s the wrap that will keep you warm on all your woodland adventures.
