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.

Hunting Activities Covid Update - 1st November 2020
Further to the Government announcement yesterday, the Hunting Office can confirm that Hunting activities in England should cease from the evening of Wednesday 4th November.

Hounds should be exercised from the kennels, but this should be done by Hunt Staff only (or a small number of regular volunteers to ensure the safety of hounds on exercise) and only 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.

The Prime Minister has said that this lockdown will be lifted from 2nd December providing infection rates drop. As soon as we know more about the restrictions which could be in place after this date, we will inform all hunts.

We appreciate that this is a difficult time for everyone, however please make sure this guidance is followed, so we can resume activities as soon as possible.

The cessation of Hunting in Wales between Friday 23rd October and Monday 9th November currently remains in place. We will continue to update you should this situation change.
