Tallentire is a farming and residential village, one of the few villages in the area still to have a pub. This is a free house run by Ray Seavers and his wife Monica, who moved to the Bush Inn at Tallentire in 2005, from the award winning White Bull, Great Eccleston, Lancashire. Contact Telephone 01900 823707 for meal bookings. The Bush always has a range of interesting real ales on sale, and a search of the internet under 'Bush Inn Tallentire' will reveal several reviews. Please take care to check that the results of a search refer to the the Bush inn in Tallentire, and not to the Bush Hotel in Cockermouth.
Holiday accommodation in Tallentire includes Bush Cottage, a couple of doors from the pub. There is little other accommodation available, though the nearby village of Gilcrux includes The Beeches Caravan Park where mobile homes are available to rent. Other accommodation is listed here. A variety of accommodation is available in Cockermouth.
Tallentire is a village to the north west of the parish about 3 miles north of Cockermouth. Tallentire means "land (or world)'s end" in old Cumbrian.
