Neil Hackett and his wife Fiona finally achieve their long cherished dream of buying a lodge in the Lake District. Their 'traditional' lodge at Lake View Holiday Park means everything to them, the years of scrimping and saving all now feel worth it.

For Fiona, Neil's newfound mix of inadequacy and jealousy is just another thing to deal with...
