You could have any apple or plum tree you like but make sure it's on a dwarf root stock. If you want them in pots the go for Aplle mm106 or m9 rootstock and plum should be okay on St Julian A. In the garden you could go for Apple M27 or Pixie. Blackmoor trees and Adams Apple Trees have lots of choices but hurry or you'll miss out on bare root stock cheap prices.
Don't buy a Cox, yes, it's a good apple but not good for home growers. There's so many to choose from it all comes down to personal tase but Kids Orange Red is a very good cropper. The ideal tree will depend on what you want and where it will be grown and how you want to manage the tree. You'll need to do your homework. Look at the websites above and Orange Pippin Trees for lots of information.
