It really depends on what you can find as a pre-trained stepover tree, unless you are planning to start from scratch.

I have found Gala, Braeburn and James Grieve to do well in the Peak District where we get cold winters, heavy snows and shortish summers. I currently have a stepover Braeburn and had a Gala done the same way in the past.
