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.

CVS East March Ride Report 2020






Following on from the popular and successful St Gregory’s Ride in July the College Valley Hunt Supporters hosted their second pleasure/fun ride since the easing of the Covid restrictions at Pawston, this was again very well attended and we had around 130 riders on the day, another great turnout when you consider we had 25 riders last year when we initiated the ride and suffered from some fairly horrendous weather.

No such issues this year ground conditions were as good as we could have wished for and apart from a very short light shower near the end of the ride everyone stayed dry and it was perfect for the horses, not to hot and a gentle breeze, the route took us from Pawston over the hill to Thomson Walls, then along the bottom of Shotton Whin towards Yetholm Mains where the route run adjacent to the ancient English East March boundary and the national border line. Onwards to the banks of the Bowmont Water for a long 2 mile canter before returning to Pawston along many of Tom’s fine grass margins.

We have had tremendous feedback from the participants on both these rides, the country we cover, the stunning scenery available along with excellent grass fields and tracks are making the College Valley rides the “not to be missed” equestrian events of the summer in the local area and beyond.
