On my allotment I've never had trouble with my fruit trees being pollinated, due to the fruit trees my various neighbours had. I wouldn't worry if I were you.

I bought my two apple trees from Deacon's Nursery (via mail order) and they were brilliant. Their website has loads of info on what will pollinate what. They also gave me tons of advice and a tailor-made list of varieties that would suit my requirements.

Bramleys need not one but two different pollinators. It flowers in the middle of yer apple flowering season so if there are plenty of other apples around on the site it should be ok. Ask around, you'll probably find someone else growing a bramley who may be able to tell you how well they do at your site.
There are lots of other cooking apples as well as bramley so if you fancied something else you could try it instead - have a look at some of the fruit tree nursery websites, they do give much more information (I've been happy buying from Walcot organic nursery a number of times now).
