The Ashcroft Advantage
Ashcroft is located along the clear cool waters of the Thompson River, yet situated in one of the driest climates in all of Canada. The landscape is like a desert, where the hills are covered with sagebrush rather than trees.
Our climate is exceptional:
Spring is a lovely season that appears much earlier than other places in the Interior; Summer is long and hot but perfect for gardening and outdoor living; Fall is also extended and full of comfortable temperatures and beautiful colors; Winter is brief and moderate, often requiring residents to use a shovel no more than 4 times in a season. Our Semi-arid climate has been proven to help those with ailments such as rheumatoid arthritis and our sunny skies help immensely those with Season Affective Disorder (SAD).
Our location is prime:
Just off the Trans-Canada Hwy, along Hwy 97C. The Lower Mainland can be reached in less than 3 hours, Kelowna: 2.5 hours, Merritt: 1.25 hours, Kamloops (our closest major urban center) < 1 hour.
Ashcroft is a peaceful and welcoming community:
Life here moves at a slower pace and the people you meet on the streets stop to say hello. Services are available for the young and old alike. Ashcroft is the kind of community you would want to raise your family, retire and grow old in. Ashcroft is diverse and has installed a rainbow crosswalk to celebrate our recognition and acceptance the diversity which makes up humankind. This is a community where there are plenty of opportunities to recreate and socialize with friends - new and old.
Ashcroft is affordable:
Real estate, which has been impossible for many people to afford, especially in areas like the Okagnagan, Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island, and the Shuswap, is reasonably priced. In Ashcroft, not only can you afford a home, but you don't have to struggle to be able to afford to live. There are multiple realtors that service our area. Listed below is one of our local realtors - why not just to see for yourself how easy it could be to live here.
The Ashcroft advantage is what makes residing here so enjoyable and livable. It is for good reason our Village logo is: Ashcroft - Wellness Awaits You.
