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.

ANDREW PROE'S RETIREMENT

After 34 illustrious years of service under three Huntsman, Andrew has decided to retire at the end of this season. We have all benefitted from the superb way he has looked after both hounds and horses in Kennels over three and a half decades and will miss his unrivalled knowledge of the hills, countryside and the people within it. Andrew is a natural horseman and he is often to be seen on a far distant hill having used minimal effort to get there. 

Longevity is a rare commodity in this day and age and there will be a testimonial for Andrew towards the end of this season providing ample time to ensure that we give him the send-off he deserves. Perhaps the most fitting testimonial is to ensure that his last season is his best ever.
