While Jenni Ackerman longed to live in an old property, husband Julian preferred the new. But even he was bowled over by the charm of this ancient farm building. It is easy to see what persuaded Julian, a sales manager, to change his mind. The old cottage that is now their home is full of rustic appeal and rings to the chatter of their daughters Lilly 5 and Ruby 2. Ancient oak beams criss-cross the ground floor ceilings and the walls are thick enough to accommodate wide window seats. Iron hooks screwed into the beams hint at the building’s history – ‘we think it was a storage barn for the farm next door,’ says Jenni – and the kitchen range is set into a carved, Cotswold stone mantel which, according to legend, came from a local abbey. ‘The property gave us all the character and the space that we wanted, without the need to extend,’ Jenni adds.
