Rosie and her boyfriend Mark are city folk who have always dreamt of a tiny countryside cottage. The nouveaux-riches Samantha and Guy are also seeking rural bliss - a mansion complete with mile long drive and a team of gardeners. The village of Eight Mile Bottom seems the perfect idyllic hide-away for them, despite the many eccentric locals including - a nosy postman, glamorous Bond Girl, and a reclusive rock star.
But as Rosie's dream becomes reality, she soon realizes that village life can be far from peaceful. The local siren is seducing Guy while a farmer fatale rocks Rosie's relationship. Then a mysterious millionaire makes her an offer that is hard to refuse. But should she?
