Better start checking dates now for next summer. Don't wear yourselves out you two, fantastic, you have opened my eyes to why I'm on this planet, see you... More

This is a unique B&B set in the heart of WW1 country that has history written all over it, Julie and David look after you the moment you arrive with great attention to detail, the rooms are comfortable and the food served is home cooked. They have great knowledge of the local area and delighted to share it with you.

If you are looking for anywhere to stay on the Somme battlefield area, then Number 56 has to be the place you go to. Julie and David will go out of their way to help you with anything. The food (both breakfast and an evening meal if you choose) is superb, the rooms are beautifully presented. Julie and David's obvious... More

Lovely farmhouse, wonderful food, fantastic service. Great garden areas to enjoy too. It was a pleasure to be welcomed as guests by the friendly and knowledgeable hosts. The full cooked breakfasts were great (or simply order what you want) and the home cooked evening meals were really outstanding. We were made to feel very welcome and nothing was too much... More

We stayed here for one night last Saturday after laying a new memorial stone at the Lochnagar Crater down the road. David and Julie were absolutely superb hosts and the evening meal a delight. Cannot recommend this guest house highly enough.

This is a magnificent B&B that really raises the bar, Julie & David are very attentive, caring hosts who will join you at their 5 Star dinner table to enjoy local produce that is superbly prepared and served. There is plenty of space to sit outside and enjoy the tranquil atmosphere and their home boasts a wonderful library plus David's... More

Stayed here with four colleagues when we were laying a memorial stone at the Lochnagar Crater. Julie & David were outstanding hosts who are somehow able to meet every need without you even realising they are doing it. Our stay was nothing less than exceptional in every way. I highly recommend visitors to the battlefields take ‘The Walk with me... More

David and Julie excellent hosts, nothing too much trouble, a really efficient team. Rooms adequate for a short stay, clean and comfortable with small ensuite. Meals taken, breakfast and dinner, were delicious with local fresh produce being used, expertly prepared by Julie, supported by David. Utilised David for battlefield tour. His detailed knowledge and thoughtful descriptions brought the disposition of... More

This is the first property review I have seen on Trip Advisor with 100% 'excellent' reviews. Being a cynical geriatric I was rather doubtful about this, but from the minute we pulled onto the drive, my doubts were dispelled. Having read all of the reviews from the past two and a half years since David and Julie opened their B... More

The warmest of welcomes into this B&B on the Somme was so appreciated, especially when one of us arrived sick and needed help with finding and seeing a doctor. The rooms are all comfortable and warm, with sweeping views of the area around La Boiselle. Julie's cooking in the evening was fantastic and the breakfasts were so generous. As accredited... More
