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.

End of Season Letter from our Chairman:

“There is no secret so close as that between a rider and his horse“ – Surtees.


Sadly we have not been able to thoroughly test this, over these past months.

Following the Prime Ministers four step roadmap to ease lockdown restrictions, we have no option other than to draw stumps for the season. Jake has kept hounds and horses ticking over in the hope that we might be able to snatch a few days at the end of lockdown, however, these plans have now been dashed.

I am sure you will all agree that Adam and Jake have had a challenging season and shown great perseverance. No opportunity was wasted to get out with some memorable days.

I would like to thank you all for the extraordinary support, both physical and financial, over the last 12 months. There is no shortage of ideas for the future with a team of enthusiastic volunteers 

currently building a new valeting room.

Our hunt is well placed for next season. In the meantime, I look forward to our summer hunt rides and the opportunity to meet up again.
