We recently stayed at Greensands in the Annexe. This is a very large house which has been extended. The B&B is in large lawned grounds and at the edge of a beautiful little Village East Hendred. Our room was nicely furnished and modern. We had tea and coffee facilities but no Decaf coffee sachets. The bed was very comfy. My... More

Stayed here with family and opinions were quite mixed. Our room was comfortable, but nothing special, while parents-in-law had a much nicer room with french windows that they were very happy with. I felt the walls were very thin, and could hear sounds from other rooms, which meant that we didn't get a great night's sleep. Service was functional, rather... More

A very pleasant B&B. Stayed at the annexe and it's set in a lovely garden. Check in was different as phone call necessary but that was fine and Fred promptly appeared. Rooms clean and decorated happily. Patio doors provide a second exit which was cool. Breakfast was good full English with many options, thank you Jane :). Only, buts I... More

Stayed on a couple of occasions and it is perfectly acceptable, as others have described it is sited over two locations within pretty close proximity to each other (10 minutes walk, although no path along a busy road). The rooms are well fine and breakfast is served from an early time should you wish to get away before the traffic... More

Greensands is on two reasonably close sites in the small village of East Hendred. Both sites have ample parking, and are surrounded by large gardens - remnants of orchards. Its location is handy for Oxford city, for the Uffington White Horse, for Didcot's railway heritage, and other National Trust and similar places, as well as many walks. The village itself... More

I was on a course at Milton Hill so picked Greensands for an overnight stay, on recommendation of a colleague. Stayed in the Annex and was pleasantly surprised all-round. Couldn't fault the place at all - good quality room, bed and facilities. Very modern and I'd happily stay here on leisure. Breakfast was good quality and although I've had a... More

I've stayed here a couple of times because I work close by. Unfortunately the booking got mixed up the first time, my colleague and I booked rooms in the same building - the Annex. But when we arrived we were in different buildings, unfortunately its not really walkable between the two, and the member of staff was adamant that it... More

I booked this B&B as someone unfamiliar with the area who needed somewhere to stay as I am starting a new job here, and have yet to secure accommodation. When I arrived the gentleman in the reception helped me with my suitcases and showed me to my room, also recommending a nearby pub. He was very friendly and accommodating and... More
