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.

You can visit Dyffryn Nantlle to enjoy the stunning views of mountain tops or walk the sandy beaches or even lose yourself in history, culture and an ancient language.

The Lon Eifion bike track runs past Penygroes and enables cyclists to enjoy traffic free paths from Caernarfon to Bryncir. It is part of the Sustrans cycling network.

The walking paths in the area vary from low level with something suitable for families and children in addition to more experienced walkers. Long distance paths - the North Wales Pilgrimage Trail and the Slate Trail - run through the area.

Yr Orsaf is the perfect hub for you to enjoy your visit by ensuring a truly unique experience in one of Wales’ largest slate regions.

Siop Griffiths (Community Benefit Society) also runs several community projects, in Yr Orsaf and in other spaces. We also support work with our sister organisation, Dyffryn Nantlle 2020, a voluntary organisation which works with children and young people.



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.
