Tyddyn Llan Country House Hotel was sold via the North West branch of Sidney Phillips. The property specialists sold the freehold interest of the property off an asking price of £1,500,000.

A spokesperson for Sidney Phillips said: "The multi award winning restaurant has been formerly operated by Bryan Webb, one of Wales foremost chefs, and his wife Susan since 2002. It is set in stunning three-acre grounds in the village of Llandrillo which lies between Bala and Corwen and offers spectacular views of the Vale of Edeyrnion, slopes of the Berwyn mountains and sits in the Upper Dee Valley (AONB).

"The property is a Georgian period former shooting lodge, once belonging to the Duke of Westminster, and comprises of two formal dining rooms, two sitting rooms, well equipped kitchen, 13 beautifully presented ensuite guest rooms, al fresco dining area plus stunning gardens and lawns which include water features, hedge maze and unparalleled views of the Dee Valley. Additionally, a four-bedroom owners cottage sits at the rear of the country club with private gardens.


"Tyddyn Llan Country House Hotel has been purchased by an experienced operator who will continue to operate the business as restaurant-with-rooms and build on its already excellent reputation."

Following the sale, Bryan said: "After six months of heartache, we finally completed on the sale of Tyddyn Llan. Although this does not mean Susan and I are leaving, we are staying on for up to six months and will continue to run Tyddyn Llan to the same high standards that we have for the past 22 years with good food, an excellent wine list, friendly service and comfortable rooms."

Bryan will hang up his apron in July after 48 years.
