After the death of her parents, Flora Poste finds she is possessed "of every art and grace save that of earning her own living." She decides to take advantage of the fact that "no limits are set, either by society or one's own conscience, to the amount one may impose on one's relatives", and settles on visiting her distant cousins at the isolated Cold Comfort Farm in the fictional village of Howling in Sussex.
