We found the Smallest House in Great Britain nestled amongst a terrace of houses on Conway’s Quayside in Wales. We couldn’t really miss the smallest house as it is painted a bright red and looks so cute situated next to the high city walls of Conway.

The house, which has a floor area of 3.05 metre by 1.8 metre and a height of 10 feet 2 inches, was actually used as a residence from the 16th century until 1900. It is sai that the owner was a 1.9 metres tall fisherman named Robert Jones. The upstairs is so minute that there is room only for one bed and a bedside cabinet. The rooms were too small for him to stand up in fully and he was eventually forced to move out when the council declared the house unfit for human habitation. The house is still owned by his descendants.

A Welsh lady in traditional clothing stands outside this small house telling tourists a bit about the history of this cute place.

Standing in front of this small house you look out over the beautiful river and harbour of Conway. I can definitely understand why you would live in such cramped quarters with such a fabulous view.

    • I can just imagine how cramped it must be inside…not a place for anybody even a bit claustraphobic! The line was quite long and we still wanted to go for a hike in the mountains of Snowdonia so unfortunately we didnt get the chance to go in.
