‘The Wuthering Heights of Shropshire’ is surrounded by romantic moorland where wild horses graze
Jinlye is an outstanding, romantic, country house located just outside the Shropshire village of All Stretton. The property was originally a crofter’s cottage, and has been extended and restored over the past 30 years to combine comfort and character, with state-of-the-art biomass green heating and solar panels.
Accommodation includes the entrance hall with an inglenook fireplace, a large kitchen/breakfast room, cloakroom, larder and two ground floor bedrooms, one of which is currently used as an office. The new conservatory has doors out to the garden terrace and access to the library.
All the reception rooms are attractive, and also great for entertaining: the large drawing room, for instance, has a beamed vaulted ceiling and inglenook fireplace; the dining room also has an open fire as well as pretty oak floors.
Two separate staircases lead to the first floor, where there are six double bedrooms – all but one have en suite shower/bathrooms; there is also a family bathroom.
Outside, the gardens are well established and include a variety of ‘garden rooms’ . There are also greenhouses, an alpine house, potting sheds and a productive vegetable garden, as well as a paddock and an adjoining orchard, while a renovated stable block includes a large office/tack room with four stables.
The Stables is a charming self-contained detached cottage with beautiful views out over the Stretton Valley. Accommodation comprises sitting room, kitchen, bedroom and conservatory.
Jinlye is situated on the edge of the Long Mynd one mile from All Stretton and two miles from the popular market town of Church Stretton; Ludlow is just 17 miles. The house sits in some of the prettiest countryside in the county, and is bordered by National Trust land.
