About Robin Hood’s Well

Welcome to Robin Hood’s Well

Our self-contained farm-stay accommodation cottages & studios are situated in Sassafras, Tasmania, only a 15 minute drive from Devonport, or a 3 hour drive from Hobart.

Robin Hoods Well Farm Stay & Art Retreats offers the opportunity to live on the land, be close to animals, harvest your own food as well as explore nearby vineyards, bars, restaurants and cafes in Latrobe and Devonport, walking/cycling trails and all that North West Tasmania has to offer from a central and convenient location.

Our mission at Robin Hood’s Well is to provide a welcoming and comfortable home away from home for every guest. We aspire to run a tranquil, sustainable farm.

We are always open to skill sharing in the areas of organic farming, sustainability, art, agriculture, mindfulness etc.

Feel free to hide away or say g’day. We, Michael & Stacey Rocca, look forward to having you!


Robin Hood’s Well Farmstay has several dwellings to choose from.

The Garden Studio is luxurious and compact. It suits 2 adults and looks out over beautiful Sassafras. It features a very comfortable King bed, small kitchenette and bathroom. Wifi Is also available.

Long Johns Cottage is a darling little country cottage that can accommodate up to 4-5 poeple. It is cosy and comfortable with two bedrooms, kitchen, lounge/dining area with wood fire and large bathroom.

Stay tuned for our up coming new accommodation opening mid March 2018.

The Barn Studios are part of our blue stone barn conversion. We will have 3 studios to choose from including a fully equipped ‘wheel chair access’ studio. Like all accommodation, we have a deluxe Barn Studio which will face north and have its own private enclosed patio with french doors leading out to a BBQ & eating space and a hot bath/jacuzzi. The Deluxe will also sleep 4 people.

Please enquire if you would like to put a booking in for these new studios. We are certainly excited to bring back an old building and make use of it.


Both of these dwellings are available with our Horse & Rider package.

Garden day visits & special ceremonies

We are often approached about holding wedding ceremonies or special garden events. If you have something in mind, please get in touch as we are still in the process of ironing out procedures and management details to handle these sort of days. Taking into account that our guests in our accommodation comes first & parking for more than 20 cars is not something we can do at this stage.



We are very keen Quarter Horse breeders and love training and working with horses. You will notice our facilities for the horses. Guests are warned please do not approach any large animals including horses, on our farm as they can be quite unpredictable, especially seeing new people and hearing new voices. If you would like to pat a horse, please ask us first.

For any equestrian questions, horse training etc, please contact us, via the contact page or our horse facebook page Anroc Quarter Horses
