Parking close to Heathrow Airport

Hi, guys !
After Worlds in Palma, since there will be neither Kiel, nor Travemunde nor anything similar, we plan to drive to UK, leave our minibus/trailer/boat somewhere close to the airport and fly away immediately to Russia until 14th August - we will fly back to UK and drive to race at UK Nationals at Brightlingsea. Initially, following your advices as long ago as during Carnac Worlds 2016, I planned to leave all my stuff at Datchet Water SC - very good place and very convenient and close to Heathrow Airport. However, now when I got in touch with the Club management, it appeared that it is impossible (prohibited by regulation) to park any cars overnight at the Club (though, no problem with boats) ... .
OK, guys, can you help me, please, and advise a reliable long-stay parking not far from Heathrow Airport (parking for 2 months - from 13 June till 14 August) ? Actually, it should not necessarily be real parking - it can be private yard/garage/farm/drive-way/etc. But, it should be reliable, safe and should not cost me crazy money.
Ideally, I want to find parking place, which I can use every year in all our trips in UK. Thank you in advance.

You could try e-mailing Datchet Water Sailing Club

There is a fleet of Musto Skiffs here and they may have an option...

Hi Yaroslav

The roads where I live are fairly quiet and you could definitely park near my house, however I am 40 mins from Heathrow by car and not v easy by train (I'm near Gatwick though!), so you may want a better offer - but you'd be welcome to park at mine
