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

Julie and David are an extremely hospitable couple who run a very comfortable Bed and Breakfast. Their enthusiasm and knowledge of the area made our visit a wonderful experience.My brother-in-law and wife were visiting from Australia and we wanted to find his and my husband's grandfather's grave. Julie and David had already discovered the whereabouts of our relative's grave before... More

I have stayed at number fifty 6 B&B on many occasions and have never had cause for complaint. The food is homely and plentiful. The accommodation comfortable and clean. The main point for me has always been the welcome. It could not be better. David and Julie greet you at the door and from the moment you enter the house... More

We had a night with David and Julie and then spent a day with David on a Walk With Me tour. Everything was excellent. We really came away with a much greater understanding of the Somme. David is so knowledgeable and gave us so many insights. We really had a very moving experience and that goes for the kids too... More

Really you feel further comment is superfluous, reading all the positive reviews already for Number 56 but we must say something! We've travelled a fair bit over quite a few years and always prefer staying in small places, B&B's or Inns if possible. I suppose we can't categorically say that this is the best place that we've stayed in but... More

My wife and I stayed with David and Julie only for one night, which wasn't enough. Next time we'll stay longer. Right from the first moment we arrived they made us very welcome, nothing was a problem. The room and facilities of their home that they shared with us were very comfortable and clean. We decided to have supper with... More
