I'm also wondering if Sylvia whose name means 'forest' might be a DRYAD tree spirit rather than a DRUID pre-Roman British religious order, probably all male because I don't see why a priestess would have to sleep through the winter whereas a supernatural creature might. Anyhow, it's the best lead you've had so far.
Not my stumper, but I was intrigued, so I looked at the Beacon Readers online.
I checked with the booksellers and neither contains this story. Perhaps there are other Beacon Readers worth checking. I have finally solved this one, with some assistance from a very patient children's librarian! The compiler of the book is Laura Cathon, and the author of the story is Mary Curtis. Because of a letter that Alicia sends to Queen Mary, Kate is punished by being exiled to Elvenwood, an isolated castle or gard.
She does end up going undergound, to the world of the "elves" who are an old sect of Druids, and the crushing claustrophobia of being underground is described. The story is interesting because it shows how certain real things could have been the basis for folklore. This is one of my favorite books. Definitely The Perilous Gard.
In , Kate is sent to the mysterious castle of Perilous Gard with her new guardian. Once she reaches the castle, she learns that his daughter has disappeared down a well, and her guardian's brother, Christopher Wren, claims he's responsible.

Christopher I think he's called Kit? It's actually a bit of a retelling of Tam Lin. A few details are mixed up, but that will make the re-read all the better! This is it for sure! A really good book and definitely worth a read. Elizabeth Marie Pope, Perilous Gard.

This is just a maybe, but it certainly seems to fit. John Beynon, The Secret People , Set in , "The Secret People" takes us to a place intruders never leave. After Mark Sunnet's rocket plane crashes in the Sahara Desert, which is being turned into a "New Sea" by France and Italy in a monumental feat of engineering, he and his girlfriend Margaret find themselves prisoners of a people determined to keep their existence secret.
Hence the title of this book. These short-statured people who resemble white pygmies dwell in an underground network of vast caves and are, on the face of it, mired in primitivism. The caves are lit by luminous globes of unknown power, suggesting that this civilization was once highly developed technologically but is now long past its time of glory.
While Margaret and her cat become a focus of worship, Mark is thrown in with the other prisoners. These are people of various nationalities who were unfortunate enough to stray into the pygmie's domain over the years - destined to live out their lives subsisting on the fungus of giant mushrooms which grow in the caves.http://kgroupeg.net/docs/scurry/mevo-warum-maenner.php
