"My! What splendid coaches. So much more suitable than those old beach huts on wheels!"
— Lady Hatt

Sir Topham Hatt's Holiday is the twentieth episode of the fifth season.

Plot

The Hatts are going on holiday, but when they exit Annie and Clarabel at Tidmouth Hault, a disgruntled Lady Hatt calls them "beach huts." Thomas is offended and his driver assures him that the coaches will not be turned into beach huts, but they could be improved. The next day, Percy takes their family to Dryaw Airfield, for them to board Harold.

The flight is delayed by a low-flying bi-plane, Tiger Moth, but they get to their retreat and stay for several days, before Harold comes with bad news: Tiger Moth has gone missing. The Fat Controller joins the search and in the end they find the bi-plane lodged in a haystack. The Fat Controller scolds the pilot, seeing to have him and his plane grounded and continues his holiday, boating on a canal. Unluckily, they become bogged down in mud and Percy has to help them back to Tidmouth Hault, where Annie and Clarabel, bearing fresh new paint, are waiting for them.

Lady Hatt comments that the coaches look "much more suitable than those old beach huts on wheels;" no one says a word. That evening, Thomas agrees with his coaches that no matter what they look like, they will always be really useful.
