Sønder Vedby Skovhuse is a village 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) east of Nykøbing on the Danish island of Falster. Today it serves as a satellite village for Nykøbing. As of 2015, it has a population of 294.[1]

History

With time, the south side of Sønder Vedby was acquired by Orupgård. Around 1900, an impressive two-storey building, partly half-timbered, was built for the estate's kvægforvalteren or cattle administrator. For many years it was used as a roebørnehave, a day nursery for children whose parents were picking sugarbeet in the surrounding fields.[2]
