When Lord Jeremy Pickering, in a fit of pique, kisses his aunt's new maid, he is astonished when she momentarily drops her Cockney accent to tell him off in very aristocratic tones. The aunt, middle-aged Lady Lavinia Pickering, starts an adventure club with her two best friends and since Catherine is obviously no good at pretending to be a maid, she is invited along as a fourth member when the ladies set out to Bath in search of adventure and new experiences.

They are followed by Jeremy, who has fallen in love with Catherine, and by Catherine's husband, the rakish Lord Monkhouse, whom she abandoned at right after her wedding. Monkhouse is only after her fortune, and wants to catch up with her before she can have the marriage annulled. When the ladies go camping in the woods and are taken hostage by a runaway prisoner, Jeremy is able to prove his mettle and rescue them. Returning to civilization after the adventure, it is now a matter of hiding Catherine from Monkhouse long enough to annul the marriage so she and Jeremy can be together.
