Rockbeare is a village in Devon, with Rockbeare Manor and its parklands being Grade I listed. The grounds are home to a huge old oak tree, believed to be one of the oldest in England and the oldest one in Devon. The name Rockbeare actually means ‘rook wood’ and has nothing to do with bears or bear-baiting. Rockbeare Manor (also known as Rockbeare House) was built in the mid-18th century, on the site of an older house.

Have you had an accident or illness while abroad?
If you booked a foreign package holiday with a UK tour operator and had an accident in the hotel or its grounds, you might, on your return to Britain, be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim against the tour operator. You have to be able to prove that your accident and injury were caused by the negligence of the hotel owner or the staff, or the holiday representative.
You can make a claim if you have had food poisoning too, as long as you received medical treatment. You and your fellow holidaymakers (food poisoning is generally not an isolated case) could make a claim for your pain, distress and suffering, and of course, you would expect compensation for the ruined holiday. Unfortunately food hygiene standards in some hot countries are not as high as they should be and bacteria flourish. You should avoid buffet-style meals which have been left out on a food counter for some time.
