Welcome to Yr Orsaf. A place to eat, stay, develop creative skills and contribute to the community.

Yr Orsaf is bustling with people getting together to socialise and eat, taking part in creative workshops, developing digital skills and a lot more.

Yr Orsaf is located in the heart of Penygroes, Dyffryn Nantlle. 

The old building was rescued by a group of volunteers in 2016 and a committee was established with the name Siop Griffiths Cyf. Our aim is to ensure that this historic building stays in the hands of the community, for the benefit of the community.  

In the past this building was a busy inn before turning into an ironmongers shop with the name Siop Griffiths. 

By now, Yr Orsaf is so much more than just a building. It's an important community hub in Dyffryn Nantlle which offers valuable opportunities for children, young people and adults and also provides work for the people who live here. 

Yr Orsaf is now home to a cafe, 3 room bunkhouse, multi use room, digital centre and offices for the staff. Also, there are numerous ongoing projects, from our Community Food Pantry to the Music Workshop for young people, there's something for everyone. 

The enterprise is going from strength to strength, and we now have a host of activities and events and some exciting plans for the future. 



The Yr Orsaf café has become a popular location for local people and visitors. In addition to the daytime café, it is developing as a venue for night time gigs, poetry and films.



Our new accommodation opened in April 2021. There are 3 stylishly renovated and comfortable rooms available that offer a unique visit to the area.
