Or you could consider going the same distance out of the smoke: 
Kingston, New Malden, Raynes Park, Merton, etc., are all a short 
bike/bus/train ride away.  They're generally cheaper and have more green 
stuff around like trees, parks, etc., if that's important to you.

Kingston is a university town so there is a good deal of affordable 
accommodation.  Demand is highly seasonal but you're at the right time 
of year.  Just don't bother trying to rent a place in August/September.

BTW, Wimbledon is the last stop on the underground.  If being near to a 
tube station is important then you probably don't want to go any further 
out of London than Wimby (aka into the "sticks").  Otherwise all those 
places have train stations with direct lines to Wimbledon and on to
