Hemmings Coach Holidays is based in North Devon, where our story started some 20 years ago with our first fleet of coaches.
Since then, this family business has grown to employ over 20 staff and operates a fleet of 17 vehicles.
Where it all started…
Our journey began in May 1999 when Ken and Linda Hemmings bought their first 49-seat executive touring coach, and the business wheels were put into motion there and then.
But that wasn’t enough – Ken and Linda needed a way to make the business stand out. So what did they do? Spray painted their coach bright pink, of course. Oh, and bought Ken a dashing pink blazer to match.
Their first eight-day tour to Chester and the Yorkshire Dales was fully booked, and many of the clients from that trip still travel with Hemmings Coach Holidays today.
That’s because we’ve retained all of the personalised, friendly customer service we started out with and we’re confident you won’t find another coach holiday provider who cares as much as we do.
Creating your dream holiday is what we do best!

Will definitely be booking holidays with them in the future”
“We’ve just returned from a Hemmings tour of Scotland and would like to say a big thank you to all involved with making this holiday so wonderful whilst observing all the rules necessary to comply with the Covid pandemic. At all times we felt very safe and each day had regular temperature checks before boarding. Social distancing was followed at all times and hand sanitising stations plentiful including the coach which was cleaned daily. Masks were worn on the coach and in the public areas of the hotels unless eating of course. It was so nice to have a break and everyone did an amazing job in what is very difficult circumstances! Thank you for a wonderful experience.”
“My daughter and I have just returned from a mystery weekend with Hemmings Holidays we had a wonderful time. The Covid precautions were reasonable and easy to follow and they did not disrupt the holiday at all. We are looking forward to our next trip booked in October with enthusiasm and confidence that Hemmings have our health and wellbeing in mind and will have planned a high quality break as allways. See you soon”
