Cwtch /kʊtʃ/ is a Welsh word for a hug, cuddle or snuggle. But more than that, there is an element of intimacy, earnestness and ownership in cwtch that the closest English equivalents ”hug”, ”cuddle” and “snuggle” lack.

cwtch creates a private safe place in a room or in two peoples hearts. It is a strong affection made manifest and can apply to lovers, friends, or a parent and child. Cwtch is snuggling and cuddling and loving and protecting and safeguarding and claiming, all rolled into one.

Cwtch is the feeling of a safe place or home that the hug, cuddle or snuggle gives. If you give someone a cwtch, you’re giving them a “safe place”.
