Bulley is a hamlet in Gloucestershire, England, almost 7 miles (11 km) west of the city of Gloucester and about 1 mile (1.6 km) north of the village of Churcham.

Bulley has had a long association with Churcham. When a parish school was founded for Churcham and Bulley in 1856 it was built at Bulley. Under the Local Government Act 1894 Bulley was made a separate civil parish, but in 1935 it was abolished and the area merged with that of Churcham.
