Lincoln Cottages 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 Maritzburg is frequently host to, or simply to explore what our region has to offer the tourist. 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.
