Your Oasis on The Somme

No.56 Galleries

Welcome to no.56

This beautiful, boutique style 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 2 consecutive years, 2016 and 2015.



"Our first ever trip to the Somme and we will definitely return, not just for the emotional and interesting area but to once again enjoy the comfort and hospitality of this lovely b&b which is home from home."
