In sun or shade (if you don't know which way the garden faces, which would be useful to know) and how big?

Rhododendrons only thrive in acid soil, so you'd need to know what yours is.

Sea buckthorn (Hippophae) are very hardy, silver grey foliage and orange berries and great around the coast, or what about Senecio, Hydrangea, Grisellinia, Eleagnus, or Viburnum - depending on aspect and conditions!

Not Griselinia - mine died in the last winter. I'd agree with all the others you mentioned, Eggboy. :-)
