About Andree Nolan
Hi everyone... Our names are Andree and Tony Nolan and we have owned our Beautiful Cottages at The Bay since 2008, in fact the very First Family to buy.... Tony is an Accountant and I am a very happy Mum and Grandma.. I personally look after the Cottages, in order to ensure your stay with us is as perfect as is possible. They are immaculate, and welcoming for you and your family. We believe the time we spend together is so precious, as we all have such busy lives - so allow us to make your holiday Special....
Andree Nolan purchased this Cottage in 2008
Why Andree Nolan chose Filey
This Beautiful Cottage is a real home from home, used personally by our own family.. We were the very first family to buy on The Bay. It was originally the former Butlins Site and my father was Manager on the Camp back in the 50s - the Hey Day of Butlins !!!!!! .. My dad proposed to my mum on the Camp. Now both my parents are no longer with us, this place still remains a very special place to our family, children and now grandchildren !! When we need to escape from lives stresses and strains - this is definately the place to come. You can be as involved or not in the amenities The Bay has to offer- for us its just perfect !!
What makes this Cottage unique
We enjoy a Prime Location on The Village, close to all facilities, but not too close for any disturbances. We have the benefit of access to the Rear Meadows, Lakes and communal areas too. Once you have secured your dates, we will call you personally to thank you for booking with us, giving you an opportunity to ask any questions or queries you may still have.
Pool / Spa
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
Home from Home Comforts plus Much More
From the initial enquiry through to booking and spending the month of July 2018 here was just a wonderful experience for our family.
The owners were most hospitable, friendly and welcome at every stage.
Filey has always been a special place in my childhood memories and wanted to share this with my family now, so I decided to start the school holidays off with a 4 week break here. Because we were spending a considerable time in one place it was important to us to have all the extras ( washing facilities, dishwasher, home comforts & cushion etc) rather than just staying in a holiday home which sometimes has an empty institutional feel.
We had everything we needed and the soft furnishing and homly feel meant it was ours to relax in. ( I was able to have a peek at some other nearby properties compare and it certainly came up tops )
The house was perfected situated overlooking the meadow and especially perfect for my family with an active 5 year old who needs open outdoor space. Although on The Bay, homes don’t have private gardens but it certainly felt like we had our own patch / small field to play in. We made good use of all the games and sporting equipment in the cottages and also proud to say we christened the new BBQ on the patio whilst enjoying our complimentary wine and treats the owners had left us.
Cleanliness is always a high priority and on my initial inspection we were pleased to find everything spotless and organised. The whole house had a great layout and we were also able to accommodate an extra guest when grannie joined for a week.
The resort itself is quiet, and has some good facilities and activities. We were on site before and during the main school holidays but it still seemed relaxed and staff where all friendly and helpful.
We made use of the free sports facilities ( pool, gym, table tennis, football) and some of the organised children activities which were reasonable priced ( archery , beach games, football coaching)
We defiantly hope to return to The Bay and to the cottage next year ( if not sooner...... )
We all had fantastic stress free holiday, with exceptional hosts, a wonderful home to share , and good onsite facilities.
Thank you for having us - Looking forward to returning soon to share and make some more family memories.....
Mr & Mrs S & 5 year old Harry xxx

Gorgeous Place , Amazing Location , instant Relaxation
Just a wonderful relaxing property. Andree does everything to ensure your stay is perfect . Quality and that homely feel Couldn’t recommend highly enough to be honest. Perfect location for Scarborough, Filey and Bridlington. Fully equipped with everything you could want . We loved it !
Home from home - absolutely gorgeous !!
Stayed for the weekend Friday 19th to Monday 22nd October 2018.
Fantastic communication with the owner Andree. Made us feel welcome before we had even stepped through the door. Andree arranged for us to have a 4 pint of milk and a lovely bottle of wine. The lovely touches of the lemon drizzle, loads of towels, toilet rolls, even a lovely shower gel were much appreciated. You only need to bring your towels for the pool.
The house is spotless and very stylish. Had everything we needed. We had my 2 year old with us and Andree had thought of everything - the tub of blocks were a god send and Tommy played hours with them.
Only a 2 minute walk to the pub and pool which were great.
Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property and will be back.
Many thanks Steph, Jakki and Tommy x
Great cottage with amazing service

It is in a great location with parking close by and plenty of on-site things to do with private access to the beach..

You can tell the owners take pride in the property and it felt like a family home. I highly recommend staying here, you will not be disappointed
