The Smallest House in Great Britain is a one up, one down cottage measuring just 72 inches across, 122 inches high and 120 inches deep and is listed in the Guinness Book of Records. Built as an infill between two rows of cottages, it was lived in until May 1900 when it was condemned as being unfit for human habitation. The last tenant was a 6' 3" fisherman called Robert Jones. Quirkily, the owner at the time was another Robert Jones, who, in a bid to save the cottage toured the country with the editor of the local newspaper measuring every other small house to confirm that it was, indeed, the smallest house in the country. The Smallest House is still in the hands of Robert Jones' family

It really IS just the tiniest house! Worth a visit if you are in the area....£1 to get inside....nothing to stay outside and take cute photos! The surrounding area has a happy and pleasant feel about it too!

The house itself is very small and should only take a few minutes to see. However the audio captions give information on the house and for only £1 to enter it's well worth seeing a little piece of history.

An interesting and astonishing tale lies behind this house. Take the 5 minutes to enjoy a snippet of Welsh history!

Visited the smallest house after the Castle, it's a must see while in Conwy. It's a lovely area to wander around too!

Very interesting place to see as you can't imagine how small it is until you see it and go inside. Worth the visit if your passing by. The surro area is nice for a long walk on a sunny day.

Down on the waterfront of Conwy, what is lacks in size it makes up for in location. Walked here after a circuit of the city walls only to find it closed. Next time

Just so lovely and so well kept. Love the colour makes it stand out. Not off the beaten track and well worth looking at.

Assuming you are coming in to Conwy over the bridge, if you take the first turn off the roundabout outside the castle, the road will take you round to the long stay carpark (Morfa Bach) which is 2hrs/£1, 4hrs/£2 or... More

No! It is the smallest house, barely big enough to turn around in!

Yes, you can. Though there's only enough space to poke your head around!
