The family lived in two converted brick cottages in a nine-acre plot on the edge of the Duke of Wellington’s estate at Stratfield Saye in Hampshire, in a style Beeny describes as “a bit like The Good Life.” The family kept goats, chickens and ducks, while her father made dolls-house furniture to raise extra cash.
