Latest reviews | Events in Yoxford | 10 Places to Stay

Yoxford (unsurprisingly a ford for oxen), just off the A12 roughly halfway between Ipswich and Lowestoft, enjoyed a brief flourishing of industry in the 19th century, but it is essentially a rural location. Indeed the area was called “The Garden of Suffolk” by writer Clement Scott of Poppyland fame. Some say Scott was referring to the fact that Yoxford has the gardens of Cockfield Hall, Rookery Park, and Grove Park surrounding it; others that the name was sparked by the predominance of fruit farms in the district. Either way, this is a splendid little village in a splendid little valley. The High Street has a fine mix of architectural styles, from Tudor timber-framed houses to Georgian residences of some significance. The place also enjoys three pubs and that adornment of any civilised settlement, a good second-hand bookshop, plus an impressive church, St Peter’s with its towering spire and notable collection of brasses. Cockfield Hall was built by Sir Arthur Hopton in the reign of Henry VIII, and added to over the centuries. Here is was that Lady Katherine Grey, sister of the unfortunate Lady Jane Grey who was proclaimed queen for eight days before Mary Tudor took the throne and had her beheaded. Katherine’s story is perhaps sadder still. Heir presumptive to Elizabeth I who distrusted and disliked the Greys, she was kept at court to be monitored easily, but managed to marry Edward Seymour, Earl of Hertford, in secret. When she became pregnant the story came out and Elizabeth put her in the tower, where after visits from Seymour she became pregnant again. The marriage was annulled, and Katherine sent from manor to manor round England, never seeing Seymour again, withering away until she died in January 1568 in Cockfield Hall, just 27.
