Two nights at Number fifty6 was long enough to get a taster of how much I really didn't know about the Somme - but in the hands of experts it was brought vividly to life. I was really touched by David and Julie's personal interest in our family's story, and the effort they'd put in beforehand to research based on... More

Really. If you want to learn more about what happened on The Somme - there is no better place to stay. Why ? No 56 is run by David and Julie - two fabulous hosts - and is in a great location - right where you want to be. The beds (and bathrooms) are clean and comfortable. The breakfasts are... More

David & Julie are wonderful hosts. I am a solo visitor and so I relish the sociable atmosphere involving both the hosts and other guests. As most people are there for some Great War related reason, this sociability works really well. You can eat very well indeed with Julie & David or else go to the quite basic but authentic... More

From the first contact with David and Julie, it was obvious that they are passionate about making sure that everyone who stays at No 56 has a great time. The warmth of the greeting was genuine and we were made to feel at home immediately. The food was excellent and exceptional value for money, Julie is a very good cook.... More

What an absolutely fantastic weekend. Julie and David treated us all like family from the moment we arrived, and the hospitality we were offered was superb. The meal we had with them was better than restaurant standrad (and much, much better value), the rooms are excellent, and the whole ambience of the place is unique. David's tour of the Somme...

My husband and I have just spent two nights at ‘Number 56’ and we were so VERY impressed with the great hospitality that Julie and David offered us there. The very warm welcome at the door was just the beginning of the VERY best of hospitality. We were thoroughly spoilt! If you read down the 100% ‘Excellent’ Tripadvisor reviews for... More

I recently stayed at no56 with my dad while we were taking a tour of the war cemetries of those that had fallen in WW1. We had a long trip down from Arnhem and was less than happy with the accommodation we had there. We were over the moon with the look of this lovely old French farmhouse. When we... More

Myself, my brother, father and father-in-law had an absolutely fantastic time staying with Julie & David who made us feel really welcome from the moment we arrived. Everything was excellent and they couldn't do enough to ensure we had a fantastic experience. We went on the tour with David and his knowledge of the war and impact on the local... More

Number 56 is a B & B run by Julie and David smack bang in the middle of the Somme Battlefield area. The accommodation is quirky, comfortable and clean. The food is home-cooked with passion, tasty and VERY plentiful! I would say the emphasis is on homeliness, with guests being welcomed on the doorstep with a huge smile by both... More
