Whether you’re thinking of downsizing, looking for a holiday bolthole, or eyeing your first property, one of these seven tiny homes could be for you.
1. Cottage for sale in Trebarwith near Tintagel, Cornwall, for £200,000
Well this is pretty cool! This cosy beach cottage is tucked into the cliff face, just a few paces from the wide, clean beach (and if you look closely, you can see the sea down the road). Check out that wood burner – perfect for chilly evenings. The ruins of Tintagel Castle, said to be the birthplace of King Arthur, and the newly-opened Tintagel Brewery are both nearby. And there are, of course, beaches galore.

2. Cottage for sale in Mathry, Haverfordwest, Wales, for £295,000
Who doesn’t love a modern yet rustic cottage? This one features lime-washed walls, a thatched roof and exposed beams. But don't forget the modcons - windows fitted with wooden shutters, a wood burner and a Rayburn cooker. The cottage is on the doorstep of National Trust woodland and the beach at Abermawr. It’s making us go weak at the knees!

3. Cottage for sale in Waltham Abbey, Essex, for £320,000
This may be a tiny home but there’s no denying a feeling of space with the high vaulted ceiling and light. Cleverly designed, it has additional loft space which is currently being used as another sleeping area. It’s spick and span, with a kitchen finished with high gloss and a modern bathroom. Close to the historic town centre and transport links, it’s got commuter, first-time buyer and downsizer written all over it.

4. Cottage for sale in Brixham, Devon, for £189,950
When it comes to quirky settings, this is right up there. There can’t be many one-bedroom homes with a gate like this one! It’s bursting with modern style (yes please to the modern shaker-style kitchen with Smeg fridge freezer). It handily has underfloor heating, a garage - and even boasts an electric car charge point.

5. Bungalow for sale in Darlaston, West Midlands, for £80,000
Yes, we know this doesn’t have quite the same charm as some of the more recently done-up properties in this article…but what an opportunity! It’s perfectly compact and once it’s been spruced up, could be a top tiny home. What’s more, it has off-road parking and a decent-sized garden.

6. Barn conversion for sale near Matlock, Derbyshire, for £250,000
This is a rural idyll and a half! This barn conversion sits on a 2.8-acre parcel of lush rolling countryside. It’s been thoroughly modernised with, among other things, a wood burner and external shutters to the windows. But the overall charm of the stone barn has not been lost.

7. Cottage for sale on the Isle of North Uist, Scotland, for £105,000
Woah! If you’re looking to escape the rat race (and up for a project), this has got to be it. This traditional, stone-built “blackhouse” boasts a truly stunning location. It’s surrounded by croft land and has views over the nearby mountains and sea. It’s been recently re-thatched but it’s in need of more TLC. Glaic Cottage is Grade B listed by Historic Scotland.
