I have been travelling with Bretherton’s for just over a year now on their day excursions and wow 

they really do pull out all the stops and everyone at Bretherton’s work so hard! 

The drivers are fantastic and the team in the office are always their to help if I have any questions.

I love my Bretherton’s days out. 

Can’t wait for my next day excursion. 



We have had many holidays with Brethertons, they are always first class in every ways so kind

and professional. We have already booked for Autumn 2024, we are so very excited too!! 

Thank you again.

I have been using Bretherton’s for years and they have never disappointed. Whether it has been a day 

excursion or a full holiday. We have always felt pampered from start to finish and their coaches are so clean

and comfortable! We have tried others once or twice but there is no comparison. We wish them all the very 

best for the up and coming route one awards, they fully deserve it. 


Thank you again 






What a way to end a perfect holiday by visiting the beautiful bulb fields. Thank you John and Helen for looking after us so well as usual you went above and beyond. 

I can’t wait for my next holiday! Christine x


Dear Goldline.
We have just returned from the Norwich and Thursford holiday and wanted to say it has been a wonderful weekend.
Our driver,Alyn, was an excellent driver and looked after us very well. The George Hotel was also “top notch” and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. Peter is now gluten free which can sometimes mean he struggles to get a complete meal but not at the George. They cooked him separate meals which were all excellent. The guided tour of Norwich was also very good and the Thursford Spectacular lived up to its name. It was glorious.
This was the first time we had experienced stopping at a good restaurant for a lunch on the journeys to and from our destination and this was the” icing on the cake “ for us. A good meal in nice surroundings and all in the price of the holiday, – so much better than a motorway stop.
An excellent holiday thank you. We look forward to joining you again next year.


Had a lovely holiday in south east Ireland with Brethertons . John and Helen were very thoughtful and helpful nothing seemed too much trouble. Took us on some interesting trips The coach was spotless and very comfortable.
Thank you both very much and hope to book again in the near future.


Every trip we have been on has been brilliant. Safe driving, cheerful staff, fantastic venues and beautifully clean coaches. Everyone is valued and pampered – nothing is too much trouble for them and they really do live up to their motto which is, ‘Dedicated to quality, courtesy and care.’


First of all I have been on a couple of trips with Brethertons and certainly will go again, the coaches are so comfortable and spotless in and out, the drivers are so helpful nothing to much trouble for them, and they look so smart, well my last trip was bens mystery tour, we went to kendel then on to kennedys chocolate factory, we had just a fantastic day, from start to finish, and it was excellent value for what it cost, I would strongly recommend Brethertons trips to anyone, I haven’t been on a trip yet myself with them for a few days or so or long distance , but I would definatly recommend as the coaches are that comfy.


I have just returned from my first holiday alone to Inverness… What a truly amazing experience I have had… The organisation was exceptional and the holiday has given me confidence to book with you in the future….Ben and Helen were professional but very friendly and made the trip totally stress free… I thoroughly enjoyed it and can’t wait to go with you again on future trips and holidays… Thank you Bretherton’s Lx


Good Morning,

I just wanted to convey our grateful thanks for your excellent service yesterday. Not only were you able to help us out at short notice but Ben, our driver, couldn’t have been more helpful. Please pass on our thanks to him also.

It all helped ensure we had a fantastic day out.

Many thanks again

Kind Regards

I Hope this message will get to e right place.

Yesterday I was on one of your coaches driving rail passengers from Preston to Carlisle driven by Ben.

I would like you to know what a delightful driver you have…. A young father was let on the coach but not his wife and small child. Ben insisted they be let. The Northbound slip rd to M6 was shut but Ben ignored the detour and found a quick way onto the M6 then phoned other drivers to alert them. Ben is an asset to your company.
