Matt Pressman has joined The Mole Resort as general manager, bringing over a decade of experience to the new resort in the North Devon countryside.

Matt joins The Mole Resort from his most recent position as resort director at St Mellion Estate in Cornwall. Earlier in his career, Matt was general manager at Aria Resorts and held senior roles at The Warren Resort & Spa, part of the Haulfyn Group, and Village Hotels.

The Mole Resort launched last summer following a £25 million development by L+R Hotels which has a portfolio spanning the UK, Continental Europe, the US and the Caribbean. The resort has evolved from the former Highbullen Hotel.

Aimed at families, couples and groups, the 58-lodge resort offers a choice of two-, three- and four-bedroom places to stay and is home to the UK’s first energy-positive lodge. On site, over 40 activities are on offer from pickleball and axe throwing to bushcraft. 

Matt comments: “The Mole Resort is a unique destination spanning 125 acres. From a two AA Rosette restaurant to a wellness centre, golf course and range of facilities, its broad offering provides significant variety. I am excited to join the team and put it on map.

“Over the next twelve months, we will be focusing on driving awareness among our core audiences and working with partners to support and enhance Devon’s tourism sector. We are beginning the year in a strong position with a bold marketing strategy which includes TV advertising. 2024 will be a significant year for The Mole.”
