Ana Mari Bull Landscape & Garden Design
Designers of RHS Award winning gardens, Ana Mari Bull Landscape & Garden Design offer a comprehensive garden design and horticultural consultancy. Central to our work is the ability to identify and draw out the essence of a site. We pride ourselves on being able to respond to the unique quality and spirit of every location, to ensure that our designs are in harmony with the architecture and character of the landscape.
Embracing both contemporary and traditional design styles we work closely with our clients to ensure their requirements are fully realised from the initial brief to the completed work.
We believe in collaboration and so welcome every opportunity to work with architects, interior designers, and craftsmen to ensure each project has a strong visual connection between the interior and exterior spaces.
Based in Oxfordshire, we have worked on a variety of large and small projects in London, the home counties, and internationally.
Our services include full design concepts, project administration, planting plans and plant sourcing, garden styling and 3D models. We can also provide landscape designs to support planning applications for both private and commercial clients.
Our work has been featured on Channel 4’s Grand Designs.

Rebecca Jones launched Henley Decorators in 2011, after 15 years’ working on property renovation projects in and around London. With an arts degree and experience working in national, international and small business environments, Rebecca has an eye for the detail and believes passionately in providing the very best customer experience: efficient, intelligent, a minimal presence and top-notch work.
The Henley Decorator ethos i.e. excellent painting and a conscientious crew, seems to have struck a chord with local residents. Our reputation has spread by word of mouth and as a result we have doubled in size in the past year, and became Ltd in March 2015. The crew are valued and are happy at work – and that makes our clients happy too.
Honeys of Henley
We have eight apiaries in and around Henley (from small beginnings of three hives in a client’s town garden, we now manage 140 plus hives). Nigel and I are commercial bee farmers, and yet stick to a traditional approach of processing – we process the honey in small batches, so we can tell you which apiary and hive produced your jar. This small batch processing allows us to bring distinctly different honeys to our customers.
In peak season we offer cut comb honey, manufacture Beeswax wraps and sell wholesale.
We sell at local markets, primarily Henley Farmers and through local shops. You can also find us at Caversham, Wallingford and Woodley Market, and other independent stockists in surrounding towns and villages.
If you are curious to see what we do, and want to stay in the loop for up and coming markets, please look us up on Instagram and Facebook – honeysofhenley. Support Local!

Philip Booth Esq
Over the years, I have observed a market-wide decline in personal service provided to both vendors and buyers by estate agents. The sale of property has become too mercenary; the drive for market share is too prevalent and personal service has been lost. My clients have told me that they have valued the personal attention and professional advice that I have given them, during such a complex and often stressful process.
In my view, your estate agent should be a trusted adviser, in the same way you have a relationship with your Lawyer, Dentist, Doctor or Accountant. Your estate agent should help you obtain the best value for your property, facilitate the purchase of your next family home and mitigate the risk for you when undertaking a large investment. Why would you trust that to someone with whom you don’t have a relationship?

SMS Planning is a planning & development consultancy based in Henley-on-Thames offering support to landowners, landlords, commercial entities and individuals in respect of their development proposals. I focus on providing value-added property development strategies to maximise the value of under-utilised assets. The consultancy provides planning policy advice, devises planning strategies and prepares, manages and submits planning applications for both residential & commercial schemes both locally and across southern England, no matter how large or small. It is regulated by the RICS.
SMS Planning is a new business, but I have been a qualified planning and development surveyor for 25 years and have a wealth of experience both in the UK and across Europe, dealing with local authorities and navigating various planning systems to provide solutions that satisfy my clients’ aims and ambitions.
Planning control is the process of managing the development of land and buildings and is designed to save what is best of our heritage and to improve the infrastructure upon which we depend for a civilised existence. Whilst local planning authorities are responsible for deciding whether developments should go ahead, I specialise in guiding my clients through this process as efficiently, cost-effectively and painlessly as possible! My clients and their vision are always my primary focus and I am excited to share my expertise with some new clients going forward.
