"No. fifty6 - What a fabulous B & B in the heart of the Somme."What our guests say
31st December 2018
As the dawn of a New Year breaks we would like to thank everyone who sent us cards and festive messages and we would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year. We spent a few days over Christmas in England with family and we are now back on The Somme ready for some rest and relaxation and make plans for 2019. The weather is damp and relatively mild but we know January can bring its winter blasts! . Regardless of the weather we get a chance in the winter to go out, dust away the cobwebs and visit places we don’t get time to explore in the summer.
2019 we hope promises good things. The renovated bathrooms are nearly finished, we know we have lovely people booked in to stay with us throughout the year as they make their own pilgrimages to this special place and we have a new arrival at No.fifty6… And as you know there is always something going on here…
