“Underwhelmed …”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

Had a look out of curiosity. Disinterested attendant took my £1, pulled aside the curtain, nodded me in and played a tape recording. Over in minutes. With hindsight, I’d have put my coin in a charity box and googled images. Not something I’d do again or particularly recommend – but each to their own.

“Cute”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

Only saw it from outside as it was closed in December when we visited Conwy but it looks really neat and I hope it'll be open for a visit next time we're in the area.

“Worth a visit, only £1”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

It is what it says on the tin, the smallest house in Britain. Only go if you are in the area, not worth going out of your way. But Conwy is a fantastic place to visit.

“Great value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

Considering it's only £1 to get in and look round this tiny house it's hard to complain. The lady who was dealing with admission was very knowledgeable and pleasant which helps.

The gift stall outside sells some novel items including some which explain more about the history of the house. I would say that this is worth visiting as long as you know what you're there for - it's cheap for a reason - it's tiny but interesting none the less.

Also it's unsuitable for those with mobility problems or a fear of small spaces!!
