A coldframe isn't the same as a greenhouse and if used correctly....a coldframes purpose, is to prepare young plants for the outside world. Because a coldframe is made from wood it doesn't heat up like a greenhouse. Therefore, it's a cold environment for which your plants can acclimatise to the outdoor conditions but still be protected enough from cold winds. Which is why your plants are suffering now, because they're being subjected to cold wind. They're showing signs of stress because they got use to the heat.

Definitley not the same. Greenhouses are warmer than coldframes.

You didn't hardening them off first, probably.

I put plants into a coldframe for 2 weeks, after the greenhouse. This allows enough time for the plant to get used to the cold.

You'd be pretty shocked if you jumped into the north sea, yes ? same goes for plants.

Hardening off is the key, even in June. Only time will tell, which plants are the strongest.

If the milk and water doesnt help, bin the plant cos that will spread to other receptive plants.

If it's on the fruit, I wouldn't eat it.

You need to take them out. Sounds like a fungal infection, I wouldn't eat any of the fruit if it has any ( not that you would). Spray with a diluted mixture of milk and water for a couple of days but me personally, would bin the plant. 

I never keep strawberry plants undercover, always outside. You need to ventilate those  plastic greenhouses, otherwise stale air builds up and you get problems with the plants.
