Review of Hunter Herald 4 stove

I'm looking for a replacement for this stove

I've not been pleased by this stove, it gets through a lot of wood for low heat output. It's set into a fireplace under a lintel so heat escape and air circulation are good but none-the-less I expect more output than I get.

Stove expert replied: Having a stove set into a fireplace can restrict air flow, might be worth investing in a stove fan that is driven but heat generated as this would move the heat into the room.
