Hey there!  I’m Nia (…not “far”, ha ha).  In 2015 I quit my job, chopped up my Oystercard and moved back to my hometown of Cardiff after 5 years up in the big smoke.  I created thecardiffcwtch.com as a place where I could occasionally post pictures and scrapbook my new/old life over the bridge in Wales, but it’s since turned into a blog about the everyday adventures of a Welsh girl, her man and her pup, Bungle. 🙂

What does ‘cwtch’ mean?

“Cwtch” is a Welsh word that can’t really be translated into English and can mean one of several things.  It can be a cuddle, or it can be a warm and safe place, or it can be used to describe feeling cosy.


I create all the content that appears on thecardiffcwtch.com; words, photographs, you name it they’re all written and taken by me (and occasionally by helpful friends and family members – where would I be without them?).  Please don’t steal or reuse my work without my permission – that ain’t cool, okay?

Sometimes companies get in contact with me and ask me to blog about or review their products/services.  Sponsored posts and PR samples will always be marked with a *, but note that all opinions are mine and mine alone, I’d never choose to promote something I didn’t genuinely like or believe in.
