Our Awards


Late in 2012, just a few weeks after our total refurbishment, Jinlye Guest House was awarded FIVE STARS by Quality in Tourism, the gold standard for UK Bed & Breakfast and Guest House accommodation.

This is the symbol that sets a haven loke Jinlye apart. If you're looking for an objective and thoroughly-researched independent opinion, this is it. We had no idea the inspector was representing VisitEngland, we gave no ays at Jinlye.


We always knew our breakfasts were special. Locally-sourced inredients, organic where possible, favouring the small producer who puts heart, soul and passion into their supply of exceptional food. That's why we were not surprised to receive this special award for our breakfasts, served in our spacious, cosy and luxurious dining room served with a smile in front of a log-burning stove.


Jinlye sits near the summit of the fabulous Long Mynd. It's a paradise for walkers. Many of our guests love to spend their days exploring the fabulous Shropshire Hills. No surprise then to see this symbol, Walkers Welcome! At Jinlye you'll find all the maps and local route information you'll need, information about connecting transport to local beauty spots, and where you can find ideal places for refreshments on your chosen routes. We'll even put your walking boots near an log burning stove to dry out if the weather is damp, and serve a hot toddy to warm you on the inside after a day's exercise.


The Long Mynd is becoming increasingly popular with cyclists, especial mountain bikers. The National Trust, which owns the 6,000 acres surrounding Jinlye, is encouraging mountain biking with specially marked routes ideal for the adventurous and the more cautious. VisitEngland handed us thier "Cyclists Welcome" award because we met their standards for support services for cyclists - cleaning points, repair kits, somewhere to overnight cycles, and brilliant local hire and service facilities.

Whether enjoying the Great Outdoors or simply relaxing in front of a roaring fire in one of our special rooms, Jinlye has it all for all types of visitor.
