One of my favourite walkways

It never ceases to please me when I walk to the top of Bowen Street, turn right (there is no left!) and walk north. Suddenly you come upon a set of rather gentle broad steps that are lined on either side with silver birches and an underplanting of ivy and other greenery. It's such a surprise in an inner urban environment. 
Looking from the top down to Highett Street
Walk down the steps and you arrive at Highett Street - one of the prettiest tree-lined streets in Richmond although sadly it is becoming rather a busy thoroughfare. And then right across the road is the Cottage 'local' - the Kingston Hotel which has a lovely courtyard out the back. During your stay why not try their Steak and Pie night on a Wednesday or their Duck and Pinot night on a Thursday or if you're a trivia buff then it's on a Tuesday.  Of course you can just pop in for a before or after dinner tipple if you don't want to linger!

So take yourself for a walk and enjoy this little hidden gem in Richmond. It always gives me pleasure. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Bowen Cottage client comment: We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Cottage is very comfortable and well located and you thought of everything we and the dogs might need.
