“Lovely setting, big car park, few shops”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2012

This is local to me, so sometimes when I need shoes , worth the 10 minute journey. As in my previous review where are the shops? In fact there are even less now as The Works , Julian Graves, Whittards and Fly Flot have all gone. And someone that sold garden ornaments has also gone.
I feel so sorry for the coach parties that come there, longest you could be there even with having a cup of tea is an hour.
Pavers the shoe shop has gone to larger premises which is a good thing as there shoes are very reasonable in their sales. There is a Leading labels shop which I did not find that reasonable Romans Originals and Cotton Traders. And then you have Edinburgh Woollen Mill with various different small outlets inside but even some of those have gone. Decent golfing and luggage part of the shop. But clothes in there are probably for the older generation nothing here for younger people or children.
It is not a big area but there is room for at least half a dozen more interesting shops.

“Needs more shops”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2012

Nice little outlet but if you're expecting the usual range of shops associated with out of town outlets then you'll be slightly disappointed.

Lovely little coffee shop there, but not the best for shopping.

“Lots of small outlets”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2012

This was a bit too quiet, not as many shops as we thought there would be. All clean and tidy and a good little tea room, but there needs to be more shops!

“An interesting bit of history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2012

The carpet tour is fascinating. Not so taken with the shopping village myself but plenty go there, so presumably someone likes it!

“Great Shopping Village”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2012

The complex contains probably a dozen shops selling everything from slippers to Scotch, the easiest way to find out what is on sale is to visit it. Leading Labels, Cottontraders, Edinburgh Wool Mill, Padders - just some of the outlets that are here. There are too many to name them all so get along and have a look.
And the bonus is? This is where the world famous Wilton Carpets came from!
