I would verifie first that the sand underneith is causing the problem. With a good roof and drainage around the cottage I would't guess the sand underneith to be the problem.

One area you should look at is the walls: if it's drywall, the dry wall may have been installed on top of older lath and plaster, a small roof leek and water will get in between the new dry wall and old plater and never realy dry out, espaially in wet climets.
