Yoxford is a village in the east of Suffolk, England close to the Heritage Coast, Minsmere Reserve (RSPB), Aldeburgh and Southwold.Location and featuresSome 94 miles from London and 25 miles north of Ipswich, Yoxford is surrounded by the parkland of three country houses in an area known as the “Garden of Suffolk”. The village derives its name from a ford of the River Yox where oxen could pass. It runs near the village. The junction of the A12 trunk road and the A1120 is in the village.The "Griffin Inn", a medieval Suffolk inn is located here. The Satis House Hotel, an 18th-century house, is often erroneously publicised as the inspiration for Charles Dickens in Great Expectations. However the Satis House of that book is better known to be based on Restoration House in Kent, referred to as 'satis' by Queen Elizabeth I. Yoxford's Satis House was actually named 'Yoxford House' until well after publication of the novel, as can quite clearly be seen on old Ordnance Survey maps. The Church of St Peter is situated here. On the edge of the village is Cockfield Hall the old home of the Blois family.The village is known for its antique shops and also has two pubs (The Griffin, and The King's Head), a Post Office, a general store, a restaurant and other shops. The Griffin had been closed for some time but reopened early in 2013.In the build up to your vacation in Yoxford, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our United Kingdom (UK) travel itinerary planner.
