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

Does exactly what it says on the tin. It's a small house. Luckily it doesn't appear the previous owners had too much clutter as there didn't appear to be an attic. Can't really make a day of it and your done within a few minutes walking away thinking 'ooh. That's a small house'. Even if it was on the market today it would be out of the reach of most first time buyers, if you think about that you might get depressed so there's a nearby pub to drown your sorrows.

You can't really spend much time here as it's so small! There was a queue to get in. Once at the front you can get a photo taken with the lady who is dressed in Welsh dress. It is £1 for adults and 50p for children to get. Once in it's very interesting as it's so small but you really don't want to spend long in there as you know there is a large queue waiting outside!

Worth a trip if you are already in Conway!

You had to line up and wait, and only two people at a time were allowed in. This was necessary as any more would mean nobody moves! Fascinating, and genuinely lived in at one stage. Worth the wait.

This is a must if you're in the area. It only takes a few minutes to see (it really is tiny) & is £1 per adult, 50p per child. My children (4 & 6) were fascinated by it. I have been a few times & will go back again as the price is right for what it is & it's amazing to think how anyone lived there.
