Gledhow Valley is a strip of mixed deciduous woodland on either side of a beck and lake. Gipton Spa, a bathhouse dating from 1671, is in the woods. Passing through the valley is Gledhow Valley Road, built in 1926.
Gledhow Lane crosses Gledhow Valley Road and on the eastern side is a steep road up from the valley. The residential area near the top is known as "Little Switzerland".
Gledhow Primary School is on Lidgett Lane. Roundhay School and Kerr Mackie primary school are adjacent to each other off Gledhow Lane. To the north are Allerton Grange School and Moor Allerton Hall Primary School.
