The cost for the 9 nights in the hotel as DB&B is £405 for a single room and £810 for a double. If children share the same room as an adult, then it's £25 per child per day. If the children have an adjoining room, then it's £39 per child per day. You will have to ask about the cost of the apartments, which do not include meals. There is a Bistro and a Bar restaurant on site. Obviously you can eat at the main restaurant if you wish at the regular price. The deposit is £25 per person on booking. The rest of the deposit (the remaining 25%) is due at the end of April. The whole amount is due a month before the Feast. We will place a notice in News & Events for both dates.
All About the Feast of Tabernacles
Chronicling the activities of Jesus Christ's earthly ministry, the book of John points out that when the "Feast of Tabernacles was at hand," Jesus Himself "went up to the feast" and taught at the Temple in Jerusalem. This was done in observance of the final of three annual Festival seasons that are outlined in the Bible, particularly in the book of Leviticus.
These three seasons, the Passover and Days of Unleavened Bread, the Festival of Pentecost and the Fall Festival season, were all observed by Jesus and the first-century Church. The latter season is capped by the eight-day Festival of Tabernacles and Last Great Day (also called "the eighth day") (Leviticus:23:33-36).
