Yoxford is in Suffolk.

Yoxford is a village in the east of Suffolk, England close to the Heritage Coast, Minsmere Reserve (RSPB), Aldeburgh and Southwold. Some 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, was referred to by Charles Dickens in Great Expectations. According to Pip, Satis means "whoever lives here could wish for nothing more". 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 three pubs (The Griffin, The Blois Arms & The King's Head), a Post Office, a general store and other shops. However The Blois Arms is closed at the moment.
