Former Michelin-starred restaurant Plas Bodegroes to be turned back into a house
Plas Bodegroes, once a Michelin-starred restaurant and hotel led by Chris Chown, is to be turned back into a home.
Planning documents show that the local council has agreed a proposal from Chown to change the site in Gwynedd, Wales, from a "restaurant with rooms back to a dwelling house".
The 18th-century grade-II listed building has operated as a hotel since 1985. It held a Michelin star from 1991-1998 and again from 2001-2008 under the stewardship of Chown and his wife Gunna.
For a time it was Wales' only Michelin-starred restaurant and its only five-star-rated restaurant with a hotel.
In 2015 Plas Bodegroes was listed as a hotel with auction house Christies for £1.5m, but was not bought.
The council has stipulated that the premises must be changed to a residential property within the next five years.
