Owner description: 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

adorable little house. Amazing that a man lived in it who was over six feet tall. Hard to imagine, Lots of interesting pictures inside.

We walked past this house in the evening after a day of touring. It was interesting the see it from the outside, but would not go out of the way to do so. Don't bother getting off the motorway or anything, but worth a walk-by if you're already on the quay.

Amazing, how people lived in the past! Go and have a look inside. It's worth the quid. You'll appreciate the comfort of your home much more after you've been inside. =:o)

No doubt about it, this house is small. This is a cute place to stop and see while walking around Conwy. For one pound you can even go inside.
