Two hundred couples are being given the chance to stay in a 'pop-up' hotel - which will disappear hours after their visit.

Luxury glamping-style cabins costing £2,000-a-week will pop-up at beauty spots only to move on in the blink of an eye.

The specially-built retreats for two will arrive at three secret locations in Wales for a mini-holiday season - before switching to the next destination.
