No.fifty6 was built in 1923, as was most of the village of La Boisselle, following its obliteration during the First World War. The house is situated behind the German front line of 1916 and the house boasts views across Mash Valley toward Ovillers Military Cemetery and Thiepval beyond.  

Julie and David have brought warmth back to this charming B&B, creating a home from home for the discerning traveller, whether solo, couples, friends or families.
