Welcome to no.56

TripAdvisor awards

This beautiful B&B which offers the services and features any small hotel would envy, 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 five 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. Delicious, locally sourced evening meals are an option - the best times are had around the No.fifty6 dining table discussing all sorts of things. David and Julie are hosts without compare. It is what they love to do. 

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 Tripadvisor Travellers' Choice for 2 consecutive years, 2016 and 2015 and winner of the prestigious Excellence Award in 2017 and 2018. It is why our guests come back again and again.

January…we certainly know winter is here. Two separate episodes of thick snow this month have kept us on our toes. The snow, while disruptive, brings a breathtaking beauty to our landscape and winter walks take on a new perspective. We have been kept busy this month because as always, despite the quiet winter months, there is always something going on here. Sadly, to end the month, we have some sad news about one of our animal menagerie.
