This film was made by an amateur filmmaker who was a farmer from Reighton, near Filey, North Yorkshire. This film features a family holiday to the Lake District including many good views of the popular area.

The film opens with scenes of horses at the Briery Close Arabian Stud. There is then a brief shot of a little boy playing with a toy on the front porch. This is followed by snow scenes around the filmmaker's house and farm including footage of his little boy on a sledge.

Now springtime, and the family pose for a picture near the Kirkstone Pass Inn located in the Lake District. There are scenes of the roads which cut through the countryside, and there is a sign pointing towards the Old Blacksmith's Shop and Curiosity Shop. The family make their way to the shop before going on a ferry ride and feeding swans.

Next the family make their way to Bladon where they visit Churchill's grave. There are shots of the local church as well as a stone dedicated to John F. Kennedy. The film closes with shots of the surrounding area.
