Seeing the smallest house in Great Britain

We were all meant to have a nice family trip to Wales this week to see the lovely castles and the beautiful coast.  As luck would have it, we ended up having a rare couples day out and ended up enjoying the sights of Conwy and Llandudno.  It was really blustery and rained all day but the perfect place to snap away and take hundreds of photos of pretty sights and buildings.

One of the things we came across was this teeny tiny house.  It’s the smallest house in Great Britain with only one room downstairs and a room upstairs and is listed in the Guinness book of records.  Apparently a 6ft 3 fisherman called Robert Jones was the last person to live in it till the 1900s when the council deemed it unfit for residence.  It’s still owned by the Jones family today and you can see the inside for £1.  Sadly it’s not open till March when season starts so we could only peer into the window from the outside.   It only takes a few minutes to see it all but if you happen to be visiting Conwy then you should definitely pop by!

  1. What a find! I bet they don’t get many people at a time in there, it’s so tiny. It’s ironic to think someone so tall lived there, you would imagine it being the home of a dwarf!
