A north Norfolk Christian holiday centre is due to re-open in the summer, following essential repairs and improvements.
The Pleasaunce in Overstrand, near Cromer, closed its doors to guests at the end of October 2015.
But, following the arrival of a new board of trustees last April, Christian Endeavour Holiday Centres Ltd has decided to reopen the centre.
A spokesman for CEHC said that former guests were already excited about staying there again.
The Pleasaunce is a Grade II* listed mansion, designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens for Lord and Lady Battersea, and built between 1888 and 1902. Frequent visitors included Queen Alexandra, her sister the Empress of Russia and Princess Louise.

What is now known as CEHC bought the house, which accommodates up to 80 guests, in 1936. The centre is just 100 yards from the cliffs, which overlook Overstrand's beach.
