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.

Entertainment and Hunting around Christmas & New Year 2019


The Carols Evening was a great success at St. Gregory's at Kirk Newton on the 21st December.  The Hunt Ensemble excelled themselves this year with a compositions of christmassy songs:  Max Humphries and Paul McDermott played a very jazzy version of Deck the Halls and Julia Wailes-Fairbairn sang solos with Paul McDermot and David Wood accompanying her on the keyboard.  Our vicar, Rev Judith welcomed us everyone, wishing them a very Happy Christmas, and a retiring collection raised £250 for the church.  Many thanks to everyone, especially those who provided the refreshments.

The CVNNH held their Boxing Day Meet at The Angel Inn in Wooler this year.  There was a wonderful turn-out and great support from the town.

Saturday 29th December also a very successful meet at the Black Bull at Etal.

And on New Year's Day the meet was hosted by The Border Hotel, Kirk Yethom.

MANY THANKS TO ALL THE PUBLICANS at the Angel Inn, Wooler, The Black Bull at Etal and The Border Hotel, Kirk Yetholm for their support in making our Christmas and New Year's Day meets so successful.
