Turquoise Holidays’ top five family resorts

Last Updated on : 19th June 2020
Turquoise Holidays’ top five family resorts

Dear NappyValleyNetter, 

Welcome to your weekly What’s On activity guide from NappyValleyNet!

A rug. Your new must-have accessory for outdoor socialising. In recent weeks a bag large enough to carry the rug has replaced my usual handbag, with housekeys, phone and contactless card occupying just a small corner. It’s another aspect of our new normal and a whole new shopping opportunity I hadn’t seen coming. New rug? New bag big enough? Why not. In between social engagements keep up with what’s on and what’s online right here (read more).

After new bricks and mortar? Our property pages have all the homes for sale and to rent in the area with our estate agent partners offering virtual valuations and tours. Simply search by postcode, by price, by number of bedrooms, or the all-important school catchment area (read more).

 

Take a look at these homes from our Preferred Property Partners
