was conceived, designed and landscaped by Ken and Monica Phillips. The tastefully decorated Cottages were hand built by the owners, and therefore the accommodation which is offered bears a reflection of love and commitment to excellence.
Lincoln Cottages is nestled amongst indigenous Acacia trees in the tranquil suburb of Lincoln Meade, Pietermaritzburg. We offer an ideal base from which both the business man and holiday maker can operate from, be it for that business convention lunch, or participating in the varied sporting events that Pietermaritzburg is frequently host to, or simply to explore what our region has to offer the tourist. We offer free WiFi too. Pietermaritzburg is the hub of the Natal Midlands and is the Capital of Kwa-Zulu Natal. The City therefore plays a leading role in the economics of the region.

Health & Climate:
The climate in the KwaZulu Natal Province is all year round tourist friendly. Sea temperatures are also relatively stable, averaging 21 degrees all year, providing possibilities for a diversity of aquatic activities in any season, including diving, fishing, swimming, boating and surfing.
Visitors to KwaZulu Natal can look forward to a splendid climate. The largest city, Durban, enjoys warmth and sunshine very occasionally mixed with light, steady rainfall. In Durban the air is heavy with humidity and the subtropical latitude of the city brings with it long, hot summers with rainfall, and very mild winters.
