"Fantastic Manager, friendly, awesome place to stay"
I first stayed in a double room within the main house which is really clean and well decorated. Second night I had a self contained unit which has living room, kitchenette, bathroom with shower and bath and a separate Double bedroom. I was visiting my Mother and found the location ideal and hotel a gem for the price. Read less
Likes:
The manager is fantastic! I forget her name, but she is so friendly and accommodating! The room is the house is quiet and spacious as well as clean and comfortable.
Dislikes:
Possibly location without a car could be a little awkward but there are buses. The noise between rooms in the self contained units is quite badly insulated. A small price to pay for such a great place

Greensands B&B is situated on the A417 between Wantage and Rowstock and adjacent to the picturesque village of East Hendred in South Oxfordshire. Set amidst what used to be a major fruit growing area the countryside beckons you to take time off from work and explore.

THE ANNEXE - Within a short stroll from Greensands we have built a new annexe to provide more accommodation. The Annexe is actually situated on the edge of the village and only a short walk from the three wonderful inns that serve food.

Despite this tranquil and rural setting Greensands and the Annexe are only 5 minutes drive from Both Harwell and the Diamond Project as well as Milton Park, one of the largest business parks in the County. Didcot station is only 4 miles drive away and the city of Oxford can also be easily reached within 20 minutes drive down the A34.

Situated a few miles South of the Ridgeway and the Berkshire Downs which is a wonderful area to explore on foot or by bike. Greensands is located on the edge of the village of East Hendred, A picturesque village nestled at the foot of the Berkshire downs and a wonderful gateway through which to explore the Ridgeway and the surrounding open countryside. The village of East Hendred itself has won many awards for it's beauty and is a mix of architecture running back though time with an abundance of thatched cottages and timber framed buildings. It also boasts three public houses who all serve food, a village shop and Post Office along with a church with a faceless clock!

Our guest house has been awarded a 3 Star rating from the AA. This does not include the Annexe.
