An arctic blast has left some of England’s country houses looking more beautiful than ever

As an arctic blast from Greenland – dubbed the Beast from the East II – heedlessly unleashes sub-zero temperatures across the UK, Tatler looks to the less chaotic, rather more beautiful impact the glacial temperatures have on Britain. In particular, to some of our best-loved country houses. We may not be able to head over this weekend wrapped up in our duvet coats and warmest winter attire, but here are some of the prettiest and most transportive frost-bitten photographs that have been shared.
