A little of what we are about ...

DeWolf Bushcraft has been created to provide a woodland retreat for Emergency Services workers and NHS staff dealing with the moral injuries and strains of work and home life.  Tucked away in the Lake District, it is a sanctuary for those looking to use woodland, mountains and nature as a place to connect, adjust and heal.

​Originally a Paramedic in the London Ambulance Service, I eventually relocated to the Lake District after having to deal with my own moral injuries.  Reconnecting with nature and the mountains has enabled me to heal and build strength again.  As such, I wish to share these opportunities with others and offer free invitation and a welcome to all who could benefit from time in the outdoors. 


Prior to my career in Emergency Medicine I led expeditions into jungle environments, alongside working as an Outdoor Instructor in the mountains.  To add to this, I have spent over fifteen years honing my Bushcraft and primitive skills.

Nowadays, I work as a Paramedic Practitioner in both Primary and Urgent Care as well as a Bank paramedic for the Northwest Ambulance Service.  I am a member of Kendal Mountain Rescue Team and when I have the opportunity I work as a medic supporting a wide variety of events.
