About
Description
No.Fifty6 is a charming bed and breakfast in the historic village of La Boisselle in the heart of the Somme. Thiepval Memorial to the Missing of The Somme, Ovillers Military Cemetery, the 34th Division Memorial More and Lochnagar Crater can all be viewed from No.Fifty6. The front of the house sits on what was The German front line with views across Mash Valley where events unfolded with dramatic consequences on 1st July 1916. David and Julie assure you a warm welcome in comfortable, well appointed accommodation and look forward to sharing their knowledge of this truly historic area and the events of 1916. No.Fifty6 has 5 tastefully themed bedrooms, all ensuite, tea and coffee making facilities and guest wifi in each room. Breakfast as healthy and hearty as you like is included in your stay. There is plenty of parking in our private courtyard. No.Fifty6 really is your Oasis on The Somme. Less

Good evening Lynne, we are about an hour's drive from Paris Beauvais Airport or 90 minutes drive from Paris CDG. Both airports have public transport links too. We hope that helps. Julie and David .
