Welcome to the Teeny-Tiniest House in All of Great Britain
Could you live in a space only 10' by 6'? What about if it had an enviable view of the water and an unbeatable location? Well someone has, and someone did up until 1900 when The Smallest House in Great Britain was declared unfit for habitation. These days, it's one of two hugely popular tourist sites in the town of Conwy in North Wales.
Apparently there's only enough room inside for "one stove, a water tap, a bedside cabinet and a bed," although we're quite sure that IKEA would have something to say about it if they could get their hands on it.
The teeny-tiny red house stands on the quayside of the town, with the 8 turrets of the medieval Conwy Castle overshadowing it to the right and the town's even older defensive walls fencing it in on the left. It's quite a thing to beholdboth the castle and the small housebut save your cash for going into the castle and not the cramped confines of the latter.
As we observed while hanging out around Conwy recently, most of the tourists come into the town on organized bus trips. Don't be one of them! Conwy is a quickie hour's drive via rental car from the center of Liverpool or an hour the other way from the awesome Isle of Anglesey. Or, you can take a train of course! Conwy, though a small and stunning little historical town, does have a railway station on the North Wales Coast Line, with tracks that run right alongside one of the castle walls.
It's kinda one of those things that you see on a map or read about in a travel guide blurb and think "yea, I'd like to go there someday," but the reality is that a quickie daytrip to Conwy doesn't need much special planning. Just get in the area and go (we did)!
