You would need 30 min. walk to the shop, church, barber and doctor. Hønefoss also has a hospital, but that´s on the very other side of town. Cinema and library, pedestrian zone, waterfall and shops, restaurants and overprized pubs are in the city centre. It really is a sleepy town with a bit too much of car traffic in rush hours. We also have a refugee camp outside town.
Comfort and Luxury
I can send you pictures or show you around on skype if you. wanna get a better impression in advance.
Tourism and Leisure
Hønefoss has excellent access to lots of outdoor activities, again: if you have your own vehicle or like long walks!
The nordmarka forest invites for hiking, there are hiking and mountainbiking areas in all directions. My place is located in between 2 fjords, Tyrifjord and Randsfjorden, both suitable for fishing, and any watersports activity. We have a common pool for indoor swimming outside town, a glass factory nearby, a nice art museum and sculpture park, fjord- beaches ( both sand and stones, with comparatively cold water in early summer, but still nice!) , many small and big lakes in the forests suitable for fishing, canooeing, swimming.
Hønefoss is not too far from higher mountain areas, like Norefjell and Vikerfjell, again with loads of hiking and outdoor possibilities and it is easy to reach Oslo city by buss if you can reach the busstop with your own vehicle first.
Since I host couchsurfers I have enough tourist information material at my home about Oslo and the region. There are also 2-3 very good paragliding spots nearby, for those who are into this.
English (or original ) language in cinemafilms is normal here, but I doubt that you would benefit from other culture-events or facilities if you don´t understand norwegian.
The pilgrims path from Oslo to Trondheim crossed not far behind my house, and sometimes lost backpackers are showing up in the garden who didn´t see the crossing in the woods.
