We had heard great things from our friends of 'No.Fifty6' and therefore decided to stay for a couple of days. We were met in the carpark by Julie and David and soon found ourselves drink in hand sitting in the lounge talking like old friends. The house is an ideal location to use as a base to visit the Somme...

I cannot praise Number 56 too highly. 5 star plus! This is one of the most friendly, welcoming and 'home from home' B & Bs I have ever stayed at! David and Julie are wonderful hosts, nothing is too much trouble for them and we left feeling we had made new friends. We arrived later than expected from Lille and...

Four of us stayed at number fifty6 for three nights in February whilst we did a guided tour of the battlefields. David and Julie were exceptionally welcoming and it really was like going home after a day visiting these historical sites. Our experience on the battlefields was unforgettable and being able to spend the evenings chatting about what we had...
