    I would check the engine mounts first, give mounts a shake to see if there worn then stick the car in gear with engine running and get your bitting point (high bite) whilst somebody watches for movement within the mounts, keep dipping the clutch so the engine is on and off engine load.

    What's the mileage?

    Well it doesn't sound like a dmf symptom yet and petrol ones tend to last ages...

    Check the mounts on the engine, then underneath on the gearbox there will be another mount....

    Failing this jack the car up on stands whilst the car is at idle and see if you can replicate the issue to source the area of the noise.

    Well if it is the mounts I would say 120+ for one depending on how many have gone really...

    Take it for a diagnoses if you ain't confident to do the checks yourself
