The base of the climbs on Blackchurch Rock are only accessible for 3 hours either side of low tide and the starts need a little time to dry out. Blackchurch Main Cliff itself is only slightly tidal at its far left- hand end.
From the A39 Bude - Bideford road, take the B3248 to Hartiand and turn right after a mile, signed to Hartiand Point and Lighthouse. After a further 3/4 of a mile, turn right, signposted to Brownsham, and follow thèse signs to a small National Trust car park at Brownsham Farm. Walk out of the car park, turn left and pick up a bridleway to Mill Mouth. About 20 minutes walk, all downhill. Some people take mountain bikes to speed things up, but it would be a lot of effort getting back to the car!
