Bilbury Grange - Vernon Coleman

Chilton Designs, 1993, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper.

From the cover: “Bilbury Grange is a dream house in a small village on the North Devon coast. It has stone lions guarding the front door, two staircases, a courtyard, a clocktower on the coach house and a Victorian walled kitchen garden. The master bathroom has twin baths sitting side by side!

But when the Doctor and Patsy buy Bilbury Grange they have no idea of the pitfalls which await them: dry rot, woodworm, slipping slates and crooked builders.

With money tight and repair bills soaring, the young couple are forced to look for additional ways to make ends meet.

But repairing Bilbury Grange isn’t the only problem they face. Rumours abound that a developer is about to build new houses, holiday homes and a golf course in the village. And then, as if that wasn’t enough, Thumper Robinson gets arrested!

Somehow, as all this goes on the Doc and Patsy find time to adopt two young kittens and four young lambs.”
