Obtaining the correct insurance

I have spent hours looking for the correct insurance but am going around in circles!  We want to let out an annex which is part of our main house, for holiday lets.  We aren't advertising on any platforms such as airbnb (literally just word of mouth through family and friends) and we will still be living in the rest of our house while we let the annex out. Both host insurance and short term let insurances mention they'll need access to the platform such as airbnb, whilst we can't have holiday let insurance as it isn't a holiday home - it's part of our house.  As I understand, regular house insurance wouldn't cover us either!  Anyone else been in this situation or have any advice? Thanks!
