The eccentric family of Sir Roderick Lyall gathers at his ancestral Irish mansion, Ballyroden Hall, for the reading of the will. Everyone is shocked to hear that, once debts are paid, the only asset remaining will be the mansion. The family doctor, Mr Walsh, suggests the mansion be turned into a guest house to bring in funds. Half the family supports the idea, but Uncle Hercules and Consuelo try to sabotage the scheme.
Meanwhile, Aunt Anna Rose insists that she has mislaid a fortune in jewels but her story is doubted because of her eccentric personality. When the first paying guests, Eustace Mills, Mrs Cleghorn-Thomas and her daughter Yvonne arrive for their holiday, expecting peace and quiet, they find themselves caught up in a series of farcical situations caused by their hosts.
