Odsey is a hamlet in Cambridgeshire close to the border with Hertfordshire and near the town of Baldock. It contains a hotel and has a main-line railway station (Ashwell and Morden) which services the three closest villages: Ashwell, Steeple Morden and Guilden Morden, and offers direct train links to Cambridge and London Kings Cross. It is situated in the parish of Steeple Morden.

The original "Hundred of Odsey"[1] was named after the hamlet,[2] and the area was important in the past as a stop on the Icknield Way.
