Coxford Priory or Broomsthorpe Priory was a monastic house in Norfolk, England.

An Augustinian Canons Regular establishment, initially founded around 1140 at the church of St Mary, East Rudham by William Cheney, the community was transferred to a new site at Coxford c.1216. The building there was constructed of flint with stone dressings and is now a grade II* listed ruin. [1]

The priory was dissolved in 1536.
