Book description
From Amazon.com:  The story of Anthony and Daphne "Bunty" Kinsman, London socialites, who became tired of the bright lights and escape, with their four young children, to the English Lake District. There they settle in Dacre Castle, a derelict medieval fortress by Lake Ullswater. Instead of a Mayfair drawing room they now have the King's Room, a stone-walled hall associated with King Athelstan! Instead of a spoilt poodle they adopted a Saluki, two whippets, peacocks, falcons, a donkey, three horses, a large floating population of pigeons, duck homing budgerigars and a villainous raven. The Kinsmans also accumulated problems... What do you do about bats on the staircase? Plumbing when your walls are eight feet thick? And a lake which overflows into your dungeons? These, and a host of other unusual domestic crises, make up this story of a family that genuinely succeeded in "getting away from it all."
