Crockernwell in West Devon is a picturesque hamlet on the Exeter to Okehampton road, a historic route that served generations of traders leaving Exeter for Cornwall over the centuries and even goes back to prehistoric times.
Local attractions include Castle Drogo, a National Trust property, as well as Fingle Bridge and Spinsters Rock on the Dartmoor National Park side. The area is popular with hikers and nature enthusiasts of all ages and attracts a large number of families. A local camping and caravan ground provides comfortable accommodation for those who travel on a tight budget or love the outdoor life.
While naturally, Crockernwell’s tourist facilities are second to none, there are always landlords or camping ground proprietors somewhere in the UK who think they can cheat and cream off the profits without ever investing anything back into their establishments. Smelly, leaky toilets, broken showers, stained mattresses, wobbly tables and decidedly grimy fridges are just some of the complaints camping ground visitors have made in the past.
A wobbly table may be irritating and spill your soup, but it is unlikely to harm you in any other way – it is usually the hidden dangers of grimy fridges and leaky toilets that should be taken seriously. Listeria is a genus of bacteria, which are typically responsible for the bacterial disease known as listeriosis, a serious infection that is the result of eating contaminated food laced with these bacteria.
In nearly 20% of victims the disease will prove fatal, as its two main distinguishing features are sepsis and meningitis. Listeriosis affects mainly pregnant women, new-born children, elderly people and those with a weakened immune system.
If you stayed in holiday accommodation where instead of a suntan and healthy complexion you got a dose of listeriosis, you can claim compensation from the establishment.
