  • Ryan’s cottage is right in the centre of Ophir

    Ryan’s cottage is right in the centre of Ophir. The grounds are delightful, with lavender at the white picket gate and roses every where. There is a grape arbor to sit under outside the old shist- built extra bedrooms. The interior of the mud- brick cottage is a delight, decorated with an eclectic collection of old pictures and plates and teacups. It is very warm and comfortable. This place has character and is an experience, not just somewhere to stay.
