About Us

Country Lion is a Northampton based Coach Hire and Self Drive Vehicle Hire company. Ideally situated in the Midlands within easy reach of the M1 motorway, to cover nearly all of your travel requirements, whether Contract or Private Hire. Family owned and managed since 1962, the company has built a reputation for quality and service excellence.

Easily recognised and well known as an established company in and around Northamptonshire, Country Lion, was purchased by Mr John Bull in 1966 whilst still operating the garage in Palmeston Road.

Over the next few years many coaches were added to the fleet and in 1980 the business acquired new premises in St James Mill Road, Northampton. The 1980's were a time of maximum growth for Country Lion and included the branching out into self drive hire, providing a range of cars, trucks, vans and mini buses. With a private hire fleet of 40 coaches, and 100 self drive hire vehicles, the business has continued to expand throughout the years. In April 2006 further expansion took place when Cloud Nine Holidays was acquired, which specialises in holidays for the over 50's. In 2010, Country Lion moved to new premises in Brackmills and is owned and managed by the Bull family.

Today, Country Lion employs over 60 highly motivated and professional people, who pride themselves in giving the very best Customer Service. We recognise that staff are an integral part of any business, and we are confident that your experience with us will be a good one, from the very first phone call answered by our knowledgeable staff, right through the duration of your travel needs, whatever they may be.
