A warm affectionate hug, cuddle or snuggle that gives a feeling of a safe place or home.
Welsh word for an affectionate hug. There’s no literal English translation, but its nearest equivlent is “safe place”. So if you give someone a cwtch, you’re giving them a “safe place”.
Full credit goes to the cwtch restaurant in St Davids. I spoke to them and complimented them on such a unique name. I was told it suited the restaurants atmosphere. Can’t wait to go there. This blurb from their website:
cwtch St Davids’ award-winning restaurant, our food is described as British classics with a contemporary twist focusing on quality sustainable locally sourced seasonal produce. Served in a relaxed, informal setting with an emphasis on warm friendly service. Big flavours cleanly presented.
