This tells the often hilarious story of two middle-aged women, Pat and Sam, intent on fleeing hearth and home for a blissful, family-free fortnight of drawing and cooking classes-only to end up at leaky old Hartley House. There the ever-resourceful Aunt Biddy is struggling to get her nephew Tom's life back on track by opening his only asset as an idyllic country retreat. Throw in a Polish butler in a Dad's Army uniform, a lovelorn artist, and a succession of oddball guests and the Mums-intent on their run-certainly get more than the change they had bargained for.
