Ribby Hall Village is investing £7million in the Reeds Bay development.
A 22-acre site will be on the south western side of the holiday village at Wrea Green.
Twenty new holiday homes are being built alongside two holiday apartments and a water sports centre.
The development will be set alongside a new five acre lake.
The lake will be used for sailing, canoeing and other water-based activities, including outdoor swimming as part of triathlon events.
Ribby Hall chief executive Paul Harrison said: “This is a significant step for Ribby Hall Village and everyone here is very excited about the latest development
“We find ourselves ready and eager to expand our business further and we are confident that the Reeds Bay development will complement our existing operation perfectly.”

Work is expected to begin on the scheme next week with work to dig out the lake the first step.
Mr Harrison said: “This is the most exciting and ambitious new project we have embarked upon for many years. It’s entirely fitting that we will begin an additional phase of construction almost exactly 25 years after building the first ever holiday cottages here.
“The success of this business is due to the enthusiasm and dedication of the people who work here, our guests and all the local people who support our many facilities. We’re delighted to be able to improve the business even further for the benefit and enjoyment of everyone involved.”
