Getting There

Getting to South Wales: transportation in Wales

Cardiff is the only international airport in Wales, so if you're arriving by plane then this will be your likely access point to your South Wales holiday lettings. Buses connect the airport to the city centre but if you're travelling further afield to your South Wales holiday home, then renting a car is the best option to reach your final destination.

The area is served by good motorway connections so flying to an airport in England is a viable option. Much of South Wales is covered by the UK rail network and National Express and the budget coach service Megabus both serve many destinations in the vicinity.

Weather & Climate

Weather in Wales: enjoy Wales in every weather

Wales has a maritime climate and thus is no stranger to rain and cloud, though it has its fair share of pleasant, sunny weather in the summer months. Due to the undulating topography of Wales, the temperature can vary dramatically depending on the altitude. You can expect the mercury to fall as much as 0.5°C for every 100m increase in altitude; something to bear in mind if you're hiking.

Average summer temperatures are around 20°C, while in winter it hovers around the three to four mark. It can rain any time but it's more common in the winter, so be sure to pack waterproof clothing no matter when you visit your South Wales holiday letting .

Attractions

What to see in South Wales: explore the great outdoors in Wales

Though Cardiff does boast some notable attractions (Cardiff Castle, Millennium Stadium, Llandaff Cathedral), it's in the great outdoors where Wales really comes into its own. Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, the UK's only coastal national park, is a natural spot that should not be missed when visiting South Wales. Hikes and boat trips are popular activities once you reach the park.

For those seeking something a little more adventurous, head to the coast and check out some of the best surfing that the UK has to offer. The Atlantic waves won't disappoint but do be aware that there are no facilities for equipment hire or refreshments; though this undoubtedly adds to the unspoilt landscape.

The crystal clear, albeit chilly, waters are not only great for surfing but also for scuba diving. Dolphins, seals and whales pepper the coastline and there's also plenty to see in the way of coral. If you prefer to keep your feet on solid ground, then check out one of the many golf courses Wales has to offer; prices are also very competitive.

Local Attractions

Leaving South Wales: Snowdonia National Park

If you plan on exploring more of the country, then Snowdonia National Park should be where you're headed. It's home to the highest peak in Wales; Mount Snowdon. The climb to the top is achievable in half a day but for those with lower fitness levels, there is a train that will deliver you to the top where you can take in the panoramic views.

Other destinations that are easily reached from your South Wales holiday letting includes Llandudno, Bognor, Aberystwyth and the Brecon Beacons National Park.

Local conveniences

Self-catering in South Wales: shopping in Wales

Depending on the location of your chosen South Wales holiday letting , will determine how much you need to shop ahead. For those staying close to Cardiff or other major cities, then supermarkets will be open 24 hours a day. If your South Wales holiday home is located in a more remote area, then always make sure you have enough supplies to see you through your stay. Small villages will have a local shop at the very least, but opening hours are often sporadic and unpredictable.
