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. That is until they wake up the next morning to discover their effortlessly superior neighbours, the Dillons, outdoorsy Robert and glamorous Penny.

Whilst Neil sees in Robert everything that he is not but wishes he could be - successful, skilled, clever, funny - their eldest son, Garth, quickly falls for the Dillons' equally charming adopted daughter, Petra - much to younger brother 'Little' Neil's amusement.

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