Wet patch in the middle of downstairs floor - spring?!

Posted 1st Mar 2016
A wet patch which is around 2 foot across (and growing) has appeared on the sitting room carpet. The carpet is completely sodden & after soaking up what we could (standing on towels!) it keeps coming back.

The floor is ground floor and near no pipes.

I can only think that maybe a spring has sprung?! It's definitely coming up from the ground.

There is a river 200m away, stream 40m away & water meadows on the other side of the road.

The house was built around 1990 & the damp proof course surely should have stopped any water coming up?!

Any suggestions, help, advice, experience?!

Our boiler broke today so I'm using electric heaters to warm the room & avoid too much damp within the room!
