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 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.

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 and winner of the prestigious Excellence Award in 2017.

What our guests say

31st July 2018

It has been quite a month. Dominated by the scorching weather, with record temperatures and a prolonged dry spell. While we, the crops and our guests wilted on several occasions in the heat there has been much to celebrate and be thankful for. A World Cup win for France, Bastille Day, July 1st and Australian commemorations, the Son and Lumiere Spectacular, unexpected kindnesses and of course our wonderful guests bringing their personal stories as they explore The Somme.
