Edna Walling created an enchanted village for herself and her friends at Bickleigh Vale, and this special quality continues to influence succeeding owners as they work to keep the vision of her achievement alive for future generations.

Although the cottages have been adapted for modern needs, and the growth of trees and shrubs has altered the gardens, Bickleigh Vale remains the finest example of Walling's ability to achieve harmony between buildings and landscape.

There will be eight of the Bickleigh Vale properties open as part of OGV’s celebration of how past and present have been melded together in this unique community. They are:

  • Badgers Wood
  • The Barn
  • Devon Cottage
  • Downderry
  • Hurst
  • Sonningfield
  • Whistlewood
  • Wimborne

Caution notes:

The grounds at Bickleigh Vale designed by Edna Walling are deliberately rambling and uneven, and the roads and many paths are unmade. They are consequently not suitable for prams, wheelchairs and people who find uneven surfaces a challenge.

Parking notes:

Parking on Pembroke Road is limited. Visitors are encouraged to park in nearby sporting reserves.
