Spring Animals in The New Forest

Springtime is a perfect opportunity for families, couples and groups of friends to enjoy the ancient woodlands in its flowering beauty. With beautiful bluebells blooming and new baby animals being born on farms, the forest is a haven for new beginnings.

Infamous for its pony population, some of the main baby animals you can look forward to spotting during a break in the New Forest are baby foals and calves. The New Forest is full of exciting things to see this spring, so make sure you don’t miss out and take the opportunity to spend some time with the family and see the baby new forest animals.

Interact with some of the baby farm animals from new baby chicks, calves and even piglets; you can see a variety of spring animals here.
Luxurious self-catering cottages on a working farm; the flock of sheep making it the perfect place to experience lambing season.
See some spring animals in their natural habitat and enjoy one of the fantastic walking routes. With the forest coming alive this time of year, you can guarantee some sights of beautiful foals and maybe even get the opportunity to see some fawn, calves and even some baby ducklings by the water. And don’t forget to keep an eye out for the stunning New Forest birds.
Come to the New Forest this spring to explore all of the different Spring colours.
There is a fantastic selection of New Forest accommodation available to suit everyone's budget and style for a Spring Break; from luxury and country house hotels, self catering holiday cottages, bed & breakfasts, camping & caravan sites and holiday parks.
