The Rookery actually began life in Bristol where we fulfilled our dream of running a B&B. It was on a short break in St.Ives that we fell in love with the place and decided it was the perfect opportunity to move our little business on.

One year later and The Rookery St.Ives was ours and everything we dreamt of. We renovated the whole building to become what we felt St.Ives was missing, a luxury B&B on a budget.

Our aim is to make you feel at home here whether is the perfect fry up or friendly conversation and with St.Ives on your doorstep you can’t help but have an unforgettable experience.

Barbara Rook

Barbara Is the head of The Rookery, not that we let Ron know this. She is the one who keeps everything ticking over and does those little touches that really make your stay memorable

Ron Rook

Ron will put you at ease straight away and if a font of knowledge for the area. He may make Barbaras eyes roll more than she cares to admit but this man knows how to make a delicious breakfast and is always at the end of the phone or email if you have a question

Now you know all about us, let us get to know you. If you think a short break on the Cornish coast could be just what the doctor ordered then choose a room and come on down, we’d love to have you stay with us.
