Looks a good deal to me. why cold?

I don't understand why it is cold either. If you bring a child and get the family ticket it is cheaper than buying an adult return ticket.
All I need now is a child . ..

It would be considered as if you travelled without a ticket.​

Seems very harsh. Suppose your children were too unwell to travel?

​if they were to allow it without kids if kids are too unwell, all peak passengers kids will "suddenly" be ill.

May be so, but that doesn't mean it's like travelling without a ticket when you actually HAVE a ticket

It's like using a Edinburgh to Glasgow ticket to go from Birmingham to London. Yes, you're travelling with a ticket, but you'll be prosecuted as if you didn't have a ticket.

very hot deal shocked it's so cold, thanks OP

Wanting to book for April and its giving me the £160 family ticket, but you can only book your outbound journey, what do you do for the return? What if its fully book on your return?

​it's an open return I.e. flexible any train. If you know which train you want for the return,
it might be possible to reserve seats at the station.
