The convent was founded in 1863 by Robert Biddulph Phillips of Longworth to ensure his daughter's happiness as a new member of a small order of French nuns, the Sisters of Our Lady of Charity and Refuge. It was designed by E.W. Pugin in the Gothic Revival style of red brick with limestone detail, for which he and his father A.W.N. Pugin, co-designer of the Palace of Westminster, were both renowned.
The building and adjacent chapel stood empty and derelict for many years before its conversion in the early/mid 2000's and now comprises individual characterful apartments all retaining many original features.
