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.

Point-to-Point racing takes place because an army of volunteers attend on the day to assist in so many different ways. A successful meeting depends entirely on attendance and sponsorship.

On Friday 18th January, the CVHSC held our first Burns Supper at the Smalleys House and thanks go to them for their generosity for hosting this event.
With 60 tartan-clad people seated round two massive tables, it made a great venue and the programme was very entertaining with bagpipes, poetry, songs by the piano.
The silent auction was very well supported. and everyone went away hame in good fettle.
Many thanks to the CVHSC who put on such a great night.
On Wednesday 6th February it was the CVNNH's turn to host the annual INTERHUNT quiz to which every Scottish pack is invited to book in teams of 4.
It proved to be such a popular night that we only just fitted into The Border Hotel's function room.
After six rounds questions, a delicious supper, well supported raffle and an uproarious atmosphere, The Border Hunt team were the runaway winners and took home the silver cup.
