Unusual but pleasant B&B - part of an old railway station. The rooms are all in the old station building, separate from the owners house. Room was clean and adequate. A kitchen (microwave, kettle, fridge) and dining room is available (due to a checkin mix up with the owner - I didnt know of the existence of this until the... More

I stayed here at the beginning of March 2015. It is a perfect location for visiting the WW1 battlefields and all the major Somme sites. Christine was very friendly and the family live apart from the B&B so you are free to come and go as you please. I had a very large room and enormous bathroom on the top... More

With several friends, I have stayed at Bernafay Wood for the last four years. Quite simply it is a joy to return each year. Christine and JP are tremendous hosts who make all feel welcome.

Following my Grandfather's footsteps from Montabaun, through Trones wood, Guillemont, Delville wood. Visiting Mametz, Albert etc Bernafay wood B and B is perfect for touring the area. Christine is the perfect host, the old railway station oozes history and was right in the middle of the action. Perfectly placed to walk their walk. Thanks Christine for making our stay so... More

This B & B was originally the Montauban railway station that saw the Allied Troops delivered by rail to one of the many front lines in France during World War 1. An excellent location that will make you feel personally involved when you set out to explore the many battlefields and rural areas in this region. It is central to... More

This B&B is perfectly situated if you are looking to explore some of the sites of the Somme as it is virtually on The Circuit of Remembrance - a driving trail that takes you around the major WW1 sites of the area including Devils Wood, Beaumont-Hamel and Thiepval. It is also close to the Lochnagar Crater. We stayed in the... More

I stayed in Bernafay Wood for three nights in February by myself. I had rented a car and was travelling around the local war sights of The Somme - the b&b is perfectly located right in the middle of all of it. Only less than 15 minutes drive from Albert, a gorgeous nearby town. The b&b is also steeped in... More

Bernafay Wood B&B provides an excellent base from which to tour the WW1 battlefields of the Somme. It is located pretty much in the centre of the battlefield area, so whether you are interested in the 1916 battles or those of 1917 or 1918, you can easily access all of them. We had no trouble finding the B&B, with a... More

For anyone looking explore battlefields of Somme this is a wonderful location. Set in an old railway station in Bernafay Wood, this B&B is superb. The owner Christine is very helpful. Our on suggestion would be to provide a BBQ in rear garden for guests' use.
