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.... Call us and have a chat, we love to talk to all our Guests...

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....

What makes this cottage unique

Our Beautiful Cottages were hand picked because they back onto the Beautiful Meadows so we have amazing views, open and tranquil and safe ...... You can walk openly over the acres of lush meadows and sit by the lake up at the Boathouse (no boats)....

This is our third stay in one of Andree's cottages and they are always spotless, cosy and welcoming. The little extra touches like wine, milk and snacks are much appreciated and Andree will always answer any queries you may have. The bay is a fantastic place to stay with everything you could need. We're looking forward to returning soon!
