Welcome to Pitches Store

Staying or dining at Pitches Store is the beginning of a special experience.

Hidden from the world in the small historic gold-mining town of Ophir in New Zealand's Central Otago, Pitches Store provides boutique accommodation with all the charm and special comforts you desire – perfect as Otago Rail Trail accommodation, for corporate travellers and romantic getaways alike.

Opened after eight months of restoration, every detail of this Central Otago accommodation reflects contemporary luxury, tastefully combined with hints of its unique 130 year history.

With six rooms and a restaurant onsite, it’s easy to enjoy passing the time with some great food, wine and good company or simply unwind in the thoughtfully designed rooms.

For those escaping a more hectic pace of life, plenty of wide open space, big skies and rolling hills characteristic of Central Otago countryside will allow for some much needed peace and quiet.

Not far from the Central Otago Rail Trail, and in what can only be called an outdoor playground, guests at Pitches Store have plenty of attractions close at hand, including 4WD Tours, walks, cycling, golfing, fishing, galleries, horse trekking, visiting historic cemeteries, and even an all-season curling rink and luge in winter.
