  • Private rental in Oldham, Manchester, has been widely criticised on social media 
  • Landlord described it as a ‘private one room garden home’ with an ‘ensuite’ 
  • However, narrow room has space for only a sofa and lacks a door to bathroom

A tiny ‘tomb’ that is little bigger than a double bed has been criticised by house hunters after it went up for rent for £200-a-month.

The private rental in Oldham, Greater Manchester, has been berated by social media users after appearing on the Facebook marketplace.

Advertising the tiny space, the landlord described it as a ‘private one room garden home’ with an en-suite, WiFi and ‘including all bills.’  

Images from inside the home, however, have shocked house hunters.

It appears to be made up of one narrow room, which only has space for a large grey sofa and two TV screens on the opposite wall.
