Have you tried the Best Fare Finder?
thetrainline.com/farefinder/

Have a play around with that and also try the best fare finders directly on the website of the train operators that serve your route to see if anything comes up cheaper with them or if they have any promos on. It could be worth getting a 16-25 railcard at £30 as it could take 1/3rd of the price off of your journey and should pay for itself very quickly.

Try the trainpal app available on both iOS and Android. It does split tickets which can reduce the fare quiet a bit.

‘Ticket splitting’: How it works

Fare splitting or “ticket splitting” is when a passenger buys multiple tickets for two or more separate legs of a single journey, instead of just one ticket.

Say you want to travel from station A to station C. Ordinarily, you would buy a ticket for the whole journey. But with ticket splitting, you may find it cheaper to buy a ticket that takes you from station A to B and then another from B to C. The train must stop at station B but you don’t necessarily have to get off.

You don’t have to go direct! Still can save money by looking at the options available ie going via Sheffield makes it cheaper but you do have a wait all depends on how cheap a ticket you want.

That means nothing. As long as there is at least ONE station in the route, between departure and arrival.
