Smallest House in Britain, Conwy

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.

  • It's the smallest house in great Britain and it is small, there can be queues but they move quickly because there is not much to do but walk around and marvel at how small it is.
  • Great place to visit and stay. Most everything is within 40/60 miles in either direction.
  • Really interesting. It is tiny. During season you can go inside.
