I bought my 2.2d 2015 and just sort of assumed it was normal.

Thinking about it now, I would think it was normal on a car from 1963, but any other car I have driven the pedals don't vibrate like they do on my 6.

Its not a huge problem mind you, but that plus the rattling noises etc make me feel like the car isn't well made at all.

Have you checked your wheel balancing lately ?   Worn tires or the accidental kerb bump can cause wheel wobble and subsequent vibrations as you describe. 
Look at life through the windscreen, not the rearview mirror.

Actuary seems to be more through the clutch than anything else now I've felt it more.

Could that still be the same thing? May get the balance checked out

If its your clutch  pedal it could be worn clutch or clutch bearing.
If it was tyres it would be felt through the steering wheel first I would have thought.
As far as your  accellerator pedal its either drive my electrical wire or cable and any vibration is through the bodywork.
