A tiny studio flat so small it has a raised bed that can be accessed only by a ladder has gone on the rental market for £1,250 a month.
The pokey home, in Kensington, west London, has no room for a living area, sofa or even a television, and is kitted out with a tiny table with one chair underneath the sleeping area.
The room does have a kitchen – but is so close to the bed frame that the cooker appears hard to access.
The ladder up to the bed only leaves just enough space for the fridge door to be opened.
