    Ryans cottage is a super little historic cottage in a beautiful tranquil location and yet still has many facilities close by with a lovely restaurant and a local pub just a few minutes walk away. The village of Ophir is a wonderful little place full of history and is also close to the Central Otago rail trail.

  • We loved this cottage! Lovely little historical place in historical Ophir

    We loved this cottage! Lovely little historical place in historical Ophir. The attention to detail in all the decorations reminded me of my grandmother's house. Clean and tidy with fresh flowers in vases. Had everything we needed, we wished we could have stayed longer. Thank you.

    Ophir is near enough to enjoy Alexandra, offers a great pub and bar and still manages to take you back to a slower pace of life.
