I think it's a bit big for that Louise - they really do tend towards the rampant, and if you kept it short you'd probably lose the flowers. They're very thorny - do you have a bit of boundary which needs a bit of an intruder-deterrent? It would be ideal for that job.
As for hiding the jasmine's 'legs', one of the English roses from David Austin would probably fit the bill - or.............
Just had an idea! one of my real favourites! Rosa Bonica!!!
It would be perfect there - never grows too big, flowers all summer, all the time, and the prettiest pink blooms. Enough for cutting for the house as well as making the garden pretty, and I've grown it underplanted with bulbs and hellebores and it was very happy there.
