Hello, can anyone suggest anything that fits the following requirements please:

Return Journey
Outward: Sun 3rd or Mon 4th June
Return: Tue 5th June

Starting station - Leeds or Garforth (or potentially Selby or Wakefield Kirkgate or York if good deals on HT or GC)
Ending station - anywhere within 50 miles of Hastings where there is a hotel that can be reached by public transport on a bank holiday

Hotel - any half decent hotel (b/b or travelinn standard is fine)

Passenger one - adult (age bracket 26-59)
Passenger two - train-mad child under 5

Railcard: Family Railcard held (no eligibility for any others)

Time requirements - travel only between 7am and 7pm due to youngster
Route requirements - via London preferred to XC
Requested hassle versus cost level - I am very comfortable explaining NRCOC or Routeing Guide, so if someone can find a £3 ticket that would require a detailed explanation then this is fine by me. Equally if someone can suggest something that they would prefer to detail by PM and require discretion from me, then this is also fine and will be respected.

Have I missed anything? Please do your worst, fellow railforums members :)

I guess the best ticket is just the saver return approx £115 then?
Using Grand Central and splitting in London can save about £15. Contrast

Leeds (or Garforth) - Eastbourne route + Any Permitted SSR £116.00


Wakefield Kirkgate - Kings X route Grand Ctrl Only G2R £70.00
(or £85.00 from York)
St Pancras - Eastbourne route Not Underground SVR £30.90
Total £100.90

The £30.90 fare should be reduced to £27.20 if booked through Southern 12% Off-Peak tickets but I can't get that link to work for me this evening. If paying the full SVR fare, West Hampstead - Eastbourne route + Any Permitted is 20p cheaper, but it is set by FCC rather than SN and doesn't attract the 12% discount.
