Yoxford



Yoxford antiques


Yoxford is a charming village in the east of Suffolk, conveniently close to the towns of Southwold and Aldeburgh (ca 8 miles in either direction) making it very well placed as a base to explore the Suffolk Heritage Coast. The village is well connected, being on the A12/ A1120 junction, with the railway station of Darsham is a mile or 2 away, and located 25 miles north of Suffolk’s county town, Ipswich, and 94 miles from London. However, Yoxford is a world away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Milestone, Yoxford


The village takes its name from a ford of what is referred to locally as the River Yox, which runs nearby. The name of the village means a ford where oxen can pass – as removing the ‘Y’ from the beginning of the name shows. Yoxford is surrounded on all sides by beautiful parklands - towards Peasenhall one can find Sibton Park, with a large fishing lake. In the village is Grove Park, and Rookery Park on the Leiston Road. Also surrounding Yoxford are extensively farmed areas (particularly fruit farms). These coupled with the parklands earns Yoxford the much-deserved title of ‘The Garden of Suffolk’.

Yoxford, Suffolk


Yoxford is a very aesthetically pleasing village, lined with low pine trees and a delightful variety of mainly timber framed, listed houses and quaint cottages.

Thatched Shelter, Yoxford


Yoxford is known for its shops, especially its antique and second-hand book shops, plus its variety of cafes, restaurants, traditional inns and other shops of general interest. There is also a thatched shelter on the high street which is pretty unique even for Suffolk.

Church of St Peter, Yoxford


Beyond the high street lies Mulberry Park, a pretty family area with picnic facilities and children's amenities. A favorite destination for tourists, almost in the centre of the park, is the Church of St Peter, kept and cared for with love over the centuries by its parishioners. The Church is a grand sight, with its unusual spire featuring a cock to mark its highest point, and its 18th and 19th Century headstones. Visitors will discover a Victorian-styled interior, along with one of the largest collections of brasses and hatchments in Suffolk.

Every August Yoxford holds an Arts Festival which includes several concerts, art exhibitions and workshops.
