"Hello David and Julie,
Well I am now back in Australia after a fabulous 3 months in the UK and I wanted to thank you both for an amazing weekend at Number 56. It felt like a home, not just a B&B. You couldn’t have made us more welcome and we left feeling we had made new friends.
We loved the accommodation – again it felt like home. And the little extras, such as the plug adapter and weather report, were most welcome. Breakfast was yummy and the packed lunch, too! But the absolute highlight was the unique and wonderful tour of the Somme battlefields. The initial ‘briefing’ before we left, which helped to set the scene and the actual visit, which was just amazing and brilliantly researched. We can appreciate how much hard work goes into these tours and it is obvious that you both have a great love for your work and for the Somme.
Thank you , David, for bringing the tour to ‘life’ – you treated my two grandfathers with warmth and respect. Sadly we never met either of them but you gave us a real feeling of connection with them both. We had no idea what happened to William Fry. So It was very touching to see the actual field at Ginchy, where he had gone into the attack and where he most probably fell. It was a sobering and very touching experience. Likewise to actually visit High Wood, where Harry Ambrose was seriously injured. How ironic that it all happened on the same day and only a few miles apart. Although the weather was not ideal in one way, we actually liked the idea that the weather conditions were very similar to those on the actual day, the fog made it very atmospheric."

31st January 2019

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.
