There are a few options:

If you have a web server, there is a CGI script in http://packages.ubuntu.com/trusty/nut-cgi

The following GUI only pulls in a few Qt libraries: http://packages.ubuntu.com/trusty/knutclient

Or this GUI uses Python: http://packages.ubuntu.com/trusty/nut-monitor

You can also use http://packages.ubuntu.com/trusty/collectd to monitor many other statistics besides just those provided by NUT (processor load, temperature, network traffic, RAM/disk usage, etc) then use http://packages.ubuntu.com/trusty/kcollectd to interactively build a time-series graph dashboard.
