The issue with Swansea, with most of Wales, isn't the cost of living, the people are friendly enough, the country is very pretty, but it is the lack of work. There is a lot of poverty. Most jobs are either service (shops, cafes, real estate, financial services) and low pay There are government jobs (DVLA is the largest employer) but the pay is low and they are mostly outsourced and filled with zero hours employees. It does have a good university however. In the early morning in Swansea, before the police make their rounds, the shop doorways have lots of people sleeping rough. When the weather allows, you find people on the beaches sleeping rough. Swansea also has a drugs and alcohol problem which is evident on the streets. The city is surrounded by council estates that are very rough. If you have a well paying job and can live somewhere exclusive, it isn't bad, but otherwise, especially with a family, steer clear.
