When I visited the Smallest House in Great Britain, which is located in Conwy, Wales, I thought it was very small indeed. But as for The Ugly House near the picturesque town of Betws-y-Coed, Wales? Well, I don't think it's ugly at all!
Now, I didn't go inside (it was closed) so maybe there's a chance that the decor is absolutely hideous. But I think that the reason why it's called the Ugly House has something to do with its name in Welsh (Ty Hyll). Ty Hyll translates directly into Ugly House, but our guide told us that its original name was slightly different and did not translate to Ugly House. The name was modified by just a letter or two and it became Ty Hyll to attract tourists. Because who can resist stopping at something called The Ugly House? I know I couldn't, especially because it's so cute.
An interesting fact about The Ugly House is that the original house was built overnight in the 15th Century. Back then, if you could build your house over the course of one night, you could lay claim to the land. Below are more photos of The Ugly House — as you can see, it really doesn't deserve its name.
