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.

  • Fun place and must visit if you happen to stay or drive through Conwy like us. We happened to stay quite close to this place and wanted to see what it was about. True to its name, it was quite small with a living room in the bottom and a bedroom on the loft. Cannot imagine this housed a couple with 2 children!! The entry fee is very reasonable (£1 for adults and 50p for children) and the people do tell a good story about this place. Just a note that the entry time is from 10 am to 4 pm, and you can expect a 15 min wait in line.
  • Cool little attraction and very informative host dressed in traditional clothing. I’m 6’7 and managed to get about in there (by myself). It’s only £1 and there is an audio info message played when you’re in there. A little disappointed that upstairs is off-limit but you can sort of poke your head up.
