You may be interested to know that the top question asked of us is, "what does Cwtch, cwtches or cwtching mean"? (Cwtch is pronounced as in "butch" in English). Perhaps literally, it means to cuddle or to hug and in that regard there is a saying, "anyone can cuddle but only the Welsh can cwtch". It does have another meaning is a cubbyhole or cupboard; a small space in which to store things safely, such as an under stairs cupboard. Often heard, "give me a cwtch", or "they are cwtching", it should make anybody feel safe, warm and comforted.
