    HISTORY

    Our private coach and minibus business is based in the South Shropshire area of the UK and we work all over the country. We first set up in 2015 and now have a team of 7 people. In addition to our private hire service, we’re delighted to have an ongoing contract with Herefordshire Council, transporting local primary school children. We’ll soon be offering day trips and are working towards establishing a full programme of day tours – watch this space!

    MEET SIMON, OUR DIRECTOR AND COACH ENTHUSIAST

    simon

    Forest Coaches is Simon’s passion. Having worked in the property industry for many years, Simon set up the company in order to deliver personal, high quality coach travel. His fascination with mechanics and vehicles, which started when he was a child, combined with his love of travel and people, led him to buying his first coach in 2001, which he drove for a local church. He has worked within the coach industry for many years, which continued to spark his entrepreneurial spirit and inspired him to establish his own coach company in 2015 when Forest Coaches was born.

    Green Credentials

    We understand the effect that the travel industry has on our planet, which is why we try to limit our environmental impact as much as possible. We’re continually trying to reduce our fuel consumption. 

    Our vehicles are routinely maintained to ensure that they always run efficiently and all our drivers are trained to drive in a smooth, economic way. 

    We are proud to partner with Biofuelwatch, a charity that aims to raise awareness of the negative impacts of industrial biofuels and bioenergy. Many companies boast that they are kind to the environment by using biofuel, a renewable energy, rather than diesel, a fossil fuel. In fact, biofuel is often more harmful as massive areas of forest land are now being cleared to produce biofuel.

    Please visit the Biofuelwatch website and learn more about the risk posed by biofuels: biofuelwatch.org.uk

    What We Offer

    As well as our coach and minibus hire we also run coach trips. Available trips can be viewed on our bookings website.

    Although we don’t offer a taxis service we do recommend the use of the following:
    Taxis in Ross
    Taxis in Knighton
