A planning application submitted for the site in Mill Green off Chequers (A1000) was granted last year, following which renovation work started earlier this month.

Outlining the plans, the application reads: “Re-roofing of main building and adjacent block including timber repairs and installation of insulation. Brickwork cleaning, repairs and re-pointing to main house.

“Repairs to timber bell tower, dormer windows, windows, cladding and other joinery to both buildings.

“Replacement of lead flashings and roofing where removed. Cleaning and decoration of previously painted surfaces.

“Replacement of two large rotten timber structural beams at roof level including dismantling and reinstating roof structure within the locality.”

The hotel, owned by Gascoyne Cecil Estates, had 25 bedrooms, stables, several outbuildings and a 140-space car park, before it closed in December 2009.

There was also a go-kart track occupying much of the field north east of Bush Hall, along with a helicopter landing pad in the same area.

Gascoyne Cecil Estates has been contacted for comment.
