Just over a hundred years ago a tall fisherman left a tiny house on the quayside at Conwy, North Wales because it had been officially declared too small for human habitation

Since then the Conwy house has been visited by thousands of people from all over the world. After the last tennant left, the owner of the property travelled the country measuring tiny houses in order to prove that this was indeed the smallest house in Great Britain, the doors were opened to countless visitors, who came to marvel at the living conditions of yesteryear....

Measuring 72 inches across, 122 inches high and 120 inches deep, the Smallest house was built in the 16th century and lived in until 1900

The last inhabitant was a Conwy fisherman who was six feet three inches!

Inside the smallest house are just two rooms. Downstairs, a settle against the wall doubles as a coal bunker, a water tap behind the stairs and the cooking was done on the open fire. Upstairs there is a narrow bed, dressing table and washstand with a cubby hole for storage

Open end of March to end of October
