What's the difference between lodging and sub-letting?

Lodger is defined as:
A lodger rents a furnished room in your home and will have use of other rooms such as the kitchen and bathroom.  They may receive some services from you, such as meals, laundry or cleaning.

Sub-letting is defined as:
A sub-tenant has exclusive use of at least one room, usually a bedroom, in your home. You, as the landlord, would need their permission to enter the area they sub-let. The sub-tenant may put a lock on their door.
