This black and white film shows the family on the beach, parading in bathrobes and swimsuits, playing beach games, paddling in the sea and with the family cars parked on the sea front. Interior shots show the inside of a cabin 'Wix cottage' and exterior shots of the family and their dog, having afternoon tea in garden.
This film opens with the family dressed in beachwear and bathrobes, walking along the beach at Dymchurch and a man and a woman chasing each other along a coastal road. The next scene shows several young children with the family group playing cricket; then on the beach and swimming in the sea.
The next section shows the family at home, in the front room of a house, with portrait shots of various family members sitting on the sofa and in an armchair. Outside a house a young girl and a man stand posing for the camera. In the rear garden of the house, the family sit in a rural garden having a picnic of cake and tea.
