Bugle (Cornish: Karnrosveur) is a village in central Cornwall, England. It is in the parish of Treverbyn and is situated about five miles (8 km) north of St. Austell on the A391 road.

The village was established in the mid 19th century following the construction of: a turnpike road in 1836-7; the Bugle Inn in 1840; and the Par to Bugle section of the Treffry Tramways in 1842. This was part of the china clay mining area.
