Welcome to no.56

Your oasis on the Somme

TripAdvisor Traveller's Choice 2015This beautifully refurbished, boutique Bed and Breakfast is located at the epicentre of the battle of the Somme. Once ravaged by gun and shellfire, No.fifty6 is now an oasis of peace and tranquility in the beautiful French countryside.

From the moment you enter the warm and tranquil guesthouse, you’ll be welcomed with cake, coffee and captivating stories in the lounge. This is the beginning of your wonderful stay in the historic village of La Boisselle, Northern France.

With four artistically decorated bedrooms to choose from, each with its own en-suite shower, free Wifi, and tea and coffee making facilities, you’ll be spoilt with serene comfort, sumptuous breakfasts and enviable views from every window.

Prepare to walk in the footsteps of the fallen and fill your senses with the sights, sounds and emotions of the Battle of The Somme on our Walk With Me experience, or simply enjoy a slice of café life in the nearby French towns.

We are delighted to have been awarded Winner status in the B&B category of Tripadvisor Travellers' Choice for 2015.



"I must also say the day on the battlefield was fantastic, and for that a big thank you Dave. It was very emotional at times."

- Billy Daggatt, Lancashire, March 2014 whose father served with the Lancashire Fusiliers 1914-18
