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.

Covid-19 Update: 4th Jan '21

Covid Update - Suspension of Hunting

Further to the recent announcements from the Government and the escalating national situation, all Hunting is suspended (across all tiers) with immediate effect.
We realise that this is a difficult situation, but it is essential that we act responsibly and adhere to the national lockdown in place.

Hounds should be exercised from the kennels, but this should be done by Hunt Staff only (or regular volunteers genuinely needed for the safety of the hounds) and for the purposes of the routine daily care of the hounds. Horses can continue to be exercised from the stables, but only as part of their routine daily care and maintenance of fitness.

We will keep you updated as much as possible.

OUR EVENTS

Recently our supporters clubs have run some very successful and well attended rides.

So keep looking on our website and on Facebook for our forthcoming events.

Please take time to read our Covid 19 Hunt Guidance for Followers before attending any of our events. https://cvnnh.org.uk/hunting-office-covid-update-25th-november/
