The Smallest House in Wales and Great Britain
Standing on the Quay in the shadow of Conwy Castle is this very tiny house. Squashed between a terrace of houses, overlooking the Conwy Estuary, this house and its neighbours were once fishermen’s homes
This one does have the honour of being the smallest house in Great Britain (and endorsed by the Guinness Book of Records) consists of only two rooms, one up one down….. and only 1.8 meters wide.
Built in the 16th century it was lived in until 1900’s. The last owner was a Robert Jones, a local fisherman, was rather tall. Standing at 1.9 meters high he had to stoop in the rooms and curl up in his narrow bed. But in 1900’s the local Council made the decision that the house was unfit for human habitation.
So there you have a little of the history….now it is a ‘tourist attraction’ and worth a peak inside.
