In a previous garden I planted a mixed hedge of hawthorn, hazel and beech - once it had established we added wild dog roses and honeysuckle which added to the security and thickened the appearance of the hedge in winter.
We didn't clip it tightly but trimmed it once a year so that it was 'hedge shaped' rather than allowing it to grow into a row of trees.
If I were planting it again I'd probably include some holly as well.
I still see the hedge from time to time and it's a real success.
