The Winemakers Cottage Mount Ophir Estate

My brother Nick, my sister in-law Lucy, my husband Denis , plus our incredible maintenance team at

All Saints Estate have been the backbone of the Mount Ophir Estate accommodation and private event renovation project.

When we purchased the property in Rutherglen we had four private event halls, five houses and the tower on the property to renovate. It was a mid blowing project but also incredibly inspiring.

All needing major repairs inside and out, including a lot of paint to bring them into the modern world and up to our high standards of style and design.

The next two years of weekends were dedicated to our renovation project and from 2016 we slowly and lovingly renovated the houses with the last 'The Lodge' currently in progress.

The first of these properties was the 'Winemakers Cottage' which is pictured below.

Built in the early 1900's this cottage was created for the purpose of growing yeast for the winemaking process. Only steps away from winery, its a perfect little cottage at the heart of the property. Sleeps two people in one bed with a small staircase to the loft bedroom. Its heated and cooled , and it's so quiet that it feels that you have been transported into an alternate universe. For the wine and food lovers we are only minutes away from Rutherglen by taxi to enjoy wineries, wine bars and great restaurants.


This cottage was one of our favourites to renovate, as it was an original 'tiny house' with a loft bedroom and cosy living room. We ripped out the old 80's spa bath (not great when you have limited water in the country) and the walls. We then relined the cottage walls, replaced the insulation, roof and put in new floors and a modern shower. From the outside it looks quite small but the space inside gives you plenty of room and a cosy and romantic feel.
