It is believed that Trefriw Wells Spa was first discovered by Romans from the XX Roman legion stationed at Canovium, 3 miles north of Trefriw. The Spa is conveniently located midway between the castle town of Conwy (8 miles) and the picturesque Betws-y-Coed (5 miles). It was used extensively by local inhabitants until a landslip covered the entrance to the Cave of Wells. In the C18 the cave was re-excavated. Originally people would bathe in the caves but in 1743 Lord Willoughby de Eresby built the Cyclopean Bath House. This was to cater for the greater number of people visiting the spa. Ownership of the spa passed from public to private ownership. The Victorian pump room and bathhouse was built.
