    On the 17th December there are very reasonable advance fares to Exeter from Stoke (£56 to £63), however, to give myself more flexibility with standard off peak returns what places are best to split?

    I need to be in Exeter by 1400 and plan on leaving after 1730.

    I will be travelling alone and have no railcard.

    A split at Bristol brings it down to £75.60, but introduces more restrictions. However, since you are travelling on a Saturday this shouldn't bother you. The Stoke-on-Trent to Exeter St. Davids tickets are routed 'Bristol' anyway so no big change to routeing either.

    Edit: You could also have Bristol-Taunton and Taunton-Exeter St. Davids day returns for £11+£10 = £21, saving a further £3. These are off peak day returns.

    Getting a Stoke - Wolverhampton CDR @ £12.10 and a Wolverhampton - Cheltenham Off Peak Return @ £21.10 will shave another £1.50 off the total.
