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 cottage.

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.
