Create an itinerary including Smallest House in Britain
Visit the 3.05 m by 1.8 m (10 ft by 6 ft) Smallest House in Britain, the former home of Robert Jones. Jones was a fisherman, and he stood, ironically, over six feet tall. He left the house in 1900 because the government deemed it unsuitable to live in. Mind your head as you explore the tiny interior and poke your head up to see the second floor, only large enough for a bed and a small nightstand. Chat with the lady outside dressed in traditional Welsh garb. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Conwy holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Smallest House in Britain and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • This house looks very small and cute from the outside. From the inside, however, it is rather spacious despite the circumstances, but I still couldn't imagine living here.
  • The Smallest House in Great Britain At only 72 inches wide and 122 inches high, you might find it hard to believe that the last person who lived in this house was 6ft 3in tall! Nestled on Conwy’s quayside, the house is extremely practical with just enough space for a bed, fireplace and coal bunker.
