About Yoxford

Delightfully situated close to the meandering River Yox, this lovely village was once an important stagepost on the road between London and Yarnmouth. The area all around here is lush and green, it is extremely pretty and in the village is a quaint mix-match of properties that range from creeper clad cottages to elegant houses built traditionally of brick. There are also some fine timber framed, black and white houses to be seen both in and around the village.

The beautiful old church is worth a visit, so too is Cockfield Hall, a Jacobean house built by Sir Arthur Hopwood in the year 1540. This imposing property is of narrow red brick and is crowned with colosal chimney's. The house was reconstructed in the 18th-century and of the original house only the north wing, gate house and some outbuildings still exist. Katherine Grey, sister to Lady Jane Grey, spent the remaining days of her life in the north wing after being imprisoned in the Tower on the orders of Queen Elizabeth Ist. The is a romantic building and well worth seeing.

Yoxford is but a few miles away from the glorious Suffolk Heritage Coast that is lined with attractive beaches and lovely coastal villages. Other attractions in the area include a Winery and Vineyard at Bruisyard.
