Welcome!

Welcome to the College Valley and North Northumberland Hunt (CVNNH) website. Meeting twice a week on Tuesdays and Saturdays from September to early March, the CVNNH is a celebrated pack of foxhounds which was formed in 1982 when the College Valley Hunt amalgamated with the North Northumberland Hunt.

We hunt within the laws of both England and Scotland across an area which stretches from Holy Island in the very North East of Northumberland, taking in the Cheviot Hills, up to the Bowmont Valley and Hownam in the Scottish Borders.

Our hunting country is diverse and rural, encompassing rolling grass and woodland in the low country as well as the fabulous white grass of the hills. We have excellent relationships with local farmers and businesses while we also endeavour to provide a focus for local community activities and fund raising.

We are particularly pleased to welcome Newcomers to hunting who can come out with us for the first time by arrangement for no charge.

We welcome followers throughout the season on horses, in cars or on foot, although we do ask that anyone new wishing to join us obtains permission from the Hunt Secretary in advance.

To find out more about hunting with us, please look at the various sections of this website or simply contact the Hunt Secretary or fill in the enquiry form in the Contact Us section.

A hound's not for life, it's just for the summer

Eva and Nicole have had the loveliest time this summer with the CVNNH hound puppies, Guv'nor and Lavish who have been 'walked' at Abbey St Bathans.

It was a great start to the holidays to come across them on day 2.

We've had great fun:

-taking then for walks round the field when they were too little to go on a proper walk

- bribing them with puppy treats to sit nice to get their leads on

-exploring the woods

-dipping their toes in the river and getting braver each time

It will be a sad day when they go back to the Kennels.

 

Testimonials...

Thank you for the hunting you have all given. I've had some cracking runs and enjoyed the company of some lovely people.

Thanks to the Mastership, the Committee and Andrew for a great season with some wonderful hunting - and of course, the usual high standard of Field Mastering! 

David L

Your chat explaining how the days hunting worked was just perfect.  We had an amazing day and came home on cloud nine.  Such gestures might seem small, but have a huge impact when you're starting out so thank you again.

Sarah

Thank you for looking after me, it was great fun.  Thank you for finding me my flask. We nearly lost it, luckily you found it.  I will be there for Red Scar Bridge.  I hope you are as well.
