No, the registration with the UKIPO is only valid in the UK. The protection granted by your trademark applies only in those countries where you hold a registration.

To gain protection in the Netherlands, you need to apply for a trademark with the Benelux IP office (BOIP), which covers Belgium, Luxemburg, and the Netherlands. It is sufficient to file one application to gain protection in these three countries as they operate under one IP office.
