Odsey is a hamlet in Cambridgeshire close to the border with Hertfordshire near the town of Baldock. It contains a hotel and has a main line railway station (Ashwell and Morden) with direct train links to Cambridge and London. It is situated in the parish of Steeple Morden.

The original "Hundred of Odsey"[1] was named after the village.[2] The village was more important in the past than it is today, as a stop on the Icknield Way.
