MS Discovered by MadelineSchneider




No one knows for sure the full history of this Welsh cabin, known as “The Ugly House,” but according to legend, it may have been constructed under an old Welsh Law that said if you could build a house from scratch and have smoke coming through the chimney within 24 hours, you could own the house and work the land within an axe-throw of the property. Today, there is a tea room inside.
