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. Guests are free to use the lounge which has an extensive library of history books and objets d'art and leads onto the rear garden and terrace, with views over pasture land to La Boisselle church.  The new light and airy dining room has an enormous terrace for watching the sun go down over Mash Valley. Just perfect for relaxing after a long day exploring, with something cool and refreshing in your hand.

From Florentine cypress trees to Lawrence of Arabia, the wit of Oscar Wilde to Land Speed Record and F1 heroes, this witty couple have tastefully decorated each of the five bedrooms with a nod to their own eclectic style and personality.
