Bugle (Cornish: Karnrosveur) is a village in central Cornwall, United Kingdom. It is in the parish of Treverbyn and is situated about five miles (8 km) north of St Austell on the A391 road.[1]

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.[2]

The village has a railway station on the Atlantic Coast Line.

Bugle F.C. were South Western League champions in 1984/85.[3] The Bugle Silver Band has been in existence since 1868 and has been successful in many regional competitions.[4]

There are plans to build a new neighbourhood on the site of the Goonbarrow Refinery west of the village as part of the St Austell and Clay Country Eco-town. This would include 450-550 homes. The plan was given outline approval in July 2009.[5]
