Yoxford is a village in the east of Suffolk, England close to the Heritage Coast and the Minsmere Reserve of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, and to the towns of 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. The river runs near the village. The junction of the A12 trunk road and the A1120 is in the village. Yoxford has been part of the Suffolk Coastal District since 1974 and had a population of 726 at the UK census of 2011.

Yoxford's parish church is dedicated to St. Peter. On the edge of the village is Cockfield Hall the old home of the Blois family.
