About Us

Home > About Us

Lakeside Coaches can trace its origins to 1979 when the Lakeside Minicoaches business was taken over by the late Mr. John Davies (our former Chairman). From these humble beginnings our family business has gone from strength to strength. 

We are an award winning business who operate a modern coach and bus fleet in the county of Shropshire and also have the largest coach fleet in the county.   The group fleet totals around 110 vehicles available for hire based at depots in Ellesmere, Wem, Shrewsbury (Shropshire) and Malpas (Cheshire) backed by  130 directly employed staff.

From our purpose built headquarters in Ellesmere, completed in 2006, expanding to our depots in Wem and Shrewsbury in 2019, Malpas in 2020 we dispatch coaches all over the country, primarily though within the County of Shropshire, Cheshire, North Wales, and the West Midlands.

The company offers 16-86 seater coaches available for hire to numerous individuals, groups and corporate customers. The company has a wide portfolio of work.  Our coaches are instantly recognisable in either their traditional and smart livery of gold, light and dark green or alternatively in tour operator livery for those on dedicated touring work.

The firm still continues to grow year on year with the addition of more coaches, staff and customers. This steady but sure growth helps to give an air of continuity and reliability for our customers.
