Skrøbelev Gods (Skrøbelev Manor) is a traditional Danish estate dating back to 1669. The name has been changed from "Skrøbelevgaard" to the current name in 2007. It is located on the island of Langeland in the south of Denmark. The Manor House has recently been renovated and is now being used as a venue for weddings and other celebrations.

The estate features a large courtyard, surrounded by the main building, green meadows with its display of strutting peacocks, cascading fountain, moat and the bridge which leads to the church.

The estate has six horse stables and the area is a relatively popular destination for eco-tourism and fishing as the island is a thin strip of land, surrounded by the sea on both sides.
