The problem with changing to permanent tenants rather than holiday lets is that they can only permit what was granted at the Planning Application.
If a change is wanted there has to be another planning application and all that entails.
Afraid it has to be that way, otherwise people with planning permission for a small garage could build a large detached house and then say, 'Can't we change it?' ... people living in the neighbourhood might not be very pleased. My ex used to be on a Planning Committee for a local council.
As for holiday lets, rent a different cottage in the west country most years; most of the ones I know use an agency to organise the bookings etc and experienced holiday let cleaners to deal with the change-over on Fridays or Saturdays. We hardly ever see anything of the owners unless they choose to come and say hello.
